Nightly ritual

Yesterday was Lainie's follow-up appointment at Children's Mercy, and our first chance to talk to the neurologist about her diagnosis. He explained that the abnormal activity on the EEG was in the frontal lobe, and that she has generalized epilepsy. (I guess there are different kinds.) Optimistically, he said that she has all the check marks to hope that she'll outgrow this. We'll continue as-is for three years, as long as she doesn't have any seizures. After three seizure-free years, she'll get a repeat EEG and maybe start weaning off the medicine. That was good news to us!

A lot of people ask how we get her take those pills every night. She's so fabulous, it's no work at all:
