I am a stay at home mom of three young children. Anthony is my oldest and he is 4yrs he has no medical problems. Dominic is my middle child. He is 3 yrs and also has no medical problems.
Skylana is 2yrs old. She has epilesy, they have not given me a type yet. She was diagnose with seizures when she was about 4 months old. It has been an on going process since then. It took me about a month to get the pcp to believe me that somthing was abnormal and then she sent us to a specialist. They found out that she was having over 25 seizures a day. They were the twitching seizures then. However now they range over the different types of seizures so. We have her on meds right now. Over the past year they have switched her meds at least 4 times trying to get everything under control. She doesnt talk but she is starting to try. She just learned to walk a lil over a month ago. She is also called failure to thrive cause she is small weight wise. She only weighs 23 lbs. But she is really tall so. I have 8 theraphists coming into our home a week to work with her in many different areas. I am not sure what else to say. I am saw this group and thought it would be nice to talk to other moms who have or are going through having a special needs child. The little things get to me and no one else seems to under stand why.
