Glad to hear your news Riven. Have been doing lots of archive searching re epilepsy as DS's seems to be having impact on his life than we had ever imagined, and i have read so many of your posts. Hope that you find someone to give you some help
DS has his seizures in his sleep - on one hand I feel that at least it's not going to happen when we are out and about etc, but now we're beginning to realise that the combination of a disturbed sleep plus his medication is making it very difficult for him to stay focussed and settled (read sitting down) at school. He's only in reception and their lack of understanding has led to us looking to change schools. Fingers crossed that a move of bloody bonkers epilim might help!
Its wonderful news Riven but is that ALL they're going to give you? 14 hours a week over a whole, long summer is fuck all really, esp considering the work you have to do. I don't want to be negative and, if I were you I'd be biting their hand off too, but its the easy option for them. I DO realise its better than nothing and, once you get going and have things set up, it will work well but purleese!
