Home

We are home. The doctor came in this afternoon and told us that all tests were negative and, after taking an infant CPR course, we could go home. It consisted of watching a video w/the nurse and practicing on the baby dummy (not very pc I know). We are home. I stink to high heaven but that's ok cause Dylan is sitting next to me. He'll be on anti-seizure drugs for a while but it's ok. As long as he's safe and healthy. I can't thank you enough for all of your kind words and prayers and good thoughts. They really helped Marc and I thought this.

  1. YAY!!!! Will still keep Dylan, you, Marc in my prayers. Do the MD's still think the seizures were from the virus? Pretty scary. I'm glad Dylan is well enough to be home. I have a friend who's gonna light a candle for him tomorrow at mass. It's okay if you stink :)

  8. So glad to hear it! I talked to S tonight and I'm so relieved for all of you. Can't wait to meet little tough guy Dylan and give you a HUGE hug! I'll tell you what S said later. ;-) Sounds like you are SUPER Mom! Love you!

  10. AH! I'm so thankful Dylan is okay, and you're all home!

    I have a second cousin who had seizures as a very young infant, they never did find out why. They put him on antiseizure meds for a while, then took him off, and it never happened again. He's now a strapping lad of 15!

    My thoughts continue with you, that Dylan never has a repeat of those scary episodes.

  12. Julie - Congratulations. I'm sure it was a scary time, but glad to hear Dylan is doing better. Now get some rest (and maybe even a shower :) ) so you can enjoy your time being a mom.

    Thinking of you,

  15. Glad you're home. Hang in there. It's meant to be that Dylan is home now, esp going through this. I'll keep your family in my thoughts.

  16. Happy to hear your home and all is going well...

    And welcome to motherhood!!!! Instead of getting broken in slowly, you apparently get the crash course! My 19 month old had a febrile seizure 2 weeks ago (his first, and God willing, his last) so I know that sheer terror you felt and it breaks my heart to know you had to watch that.

    Good luck!!!!

    When our youngest boy was a baby he had seizures also. After many tests the doctors told us it was epilepsy - gave no reason why. After six months on phenobarbital, he outgrew the seizures. He is now 13 years old and the healthiest boy you've ever seen.

    Good luck to you kiddo!! Everything will work out just fine!

  33. Oh, Julie! I just had a chance to catch up! How scary for you. I'm glad that Dylan is getting the treatment he needs and I'll be keeping you all in my T's and P's.

  34. Okay, enough already; please tell Dylan no more scary dramatics, just settle down and drink his milk and take a nap so mommy can come online and catch us up on life with baby. My gosh, you have a baby in the house, Julie!!! :-)

  37. I was just catching up on your blog and was sad to read news of Dylan's seizures but glad to hear he is home and you and he are doing well.
    If it is any comfort, my brother-in-law's brother's little boy had a similiar experience at 3 years. He had a few seizures and then hasn't since (couple of years ago). The doctors have probably told you similiar.
    Good luck. Enjoy the holidays with your new family with the precious little boy.

  38. I am so sorry to hear that this has happened but thrilled to hear he is okay. Almost all of the children I know of adopted from Guatemala have gotten sick at first but were okay. I guess all the changes. It's very scary. They were all fine though.
