Blast from the Past

Okay, so things were going fine. On Wednesday, Steff had an episode at school. It wasn't just the tremors that we have become accustomed to, but more intense. I know she gets tired of doing this medical plan, with all the supplements and the protein drink every night. Who wouldn't?BUT after today, it proves completely that she needs to stay on it.

Leslie (comment on last post). Thank you very much. I am glad she's better, but we still have a long way to go. She has come a long way from Feb 2, 2009, and things are much better than they were then, but things are NOT like they were prior Gardasil. Her memory & thought process is not the same. So, when I say "life is good" don't think we have this all wrapped up, because we know that we still have a long way to go. I do think it is important to recognize that her health has come a long way, she's happier and life is just much easier.
So, everyone, know that it isn't over yet. We are still fighting for her health and doing the best we can. A little set back on Wednesday, that's all.

ONE year ago today.. this blog

ONE year ago today, our journey down this medical road started. I created this blog in the middle of Feb to keep family and friends posted. Today, I'm happy to say, Steff is doing much better. The episodes have calmed down to "tremors" instead of the violent seizure like episodes.
Her body lets her sleep through the night and overall, she has much improved throughout the year. Wasn't sure we would make it ~ stress and all ~ but we have. Here's to hoping and praying that next year at this time, she's off to college doing very well.
So, Life is Good in the Richardson household. = )
Positive thoughts bring positive things.......
