Another day, another clinic

Today we spent another day over at BAMC. I was able to finally get those labs ordered for Daniel. When I left the hospital all had come back normal but the Tegretol levels are still pending. Daniel's eyes have been determined to be fine although his blinking is still the same and he's been asking to wear his glasses a lot more. He says he can't see. Maybe he's just finally realized that they help his vision. He is 7 now, after all. Depending on how the Tegretol levels come back, our next avenue of investigation will be a referral back to neurology and an EEG to see if maybe his blinking is due to seizure activity. I'm hoping to be able to put that off until after our move though.

Aside from those things, Noah went to the psychiatrist today. We're still tweaking meds. His anxiety has been better and his OCD behaviors better also but he still paces, forgets things, wanders aimlessly around and fidgets uncontrollably so the doc tweaked some more and we go back for our (last) appointment with Dr. Cepeda on June 1. He's been a good doctor. We've been with him for 3 1/2 years. I hope we find someone equally competent when we arrive in Georgia.

My BFF is hugely pregnant. She's due in a couple weeks and unfortunately has come down with a sinus infection so I'll be heading over shortly with some home made soup for her. I even strained all the chunks out. She likes onion flavor but not onions. ;) I love my Amy. I'm going to miss her when we go our separate ways. She's moving to Ft. Lewis, where I'd love to be and I'm moving to the next best thing to "home" for her. She was praying to be able to go to GA since she's from Florida. She's trying not to be jealous and I'm doing the same. I'm off to deliver the soup and visit for a few minutes. Our time together is so limited now.
