Every so often I will open a blog post from a year earlier to see where we were on this journey and see what, if anything, has changed and if so, in what manner. I didn't remember that in September of last year I only wrote one blog post. It gave me a chuckle that it's title was "muddy water". I couldn't remember based on those words what the post was about so I opened it up and was reminded that a year ago Sonzee and I traveled to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to try and figure out her GI issues. In another "funny" coincidence I sent her GI doctor here in Phoenix an e-mail 5 hours prior to rereading the post. I swear the days pass by but her story remains similar to the hamster on its wheel...attempting to run full speed somewhere, never getting anywhere, and ending up just completely exhausted.
It has been a month since we've met with her GI doctor. Part of me feels like it was just yesterday, while another side of me feels like it was an eternity ago. We have followed through with our temporary game plan, and in the mean time her seizures have returned into their usual end of summer beginning of fall nightmare. No matter what we do now for her GI system it would not be possible to judge the outcome fairly because her seizures "dull" everything away. It is a perpetual cycle. A cycle that we have come to know and one I was pushing hard NOT to repeat. I thought by pushing for care conferences beginning in Feb/March was a sure way to "outsmart" her body systems. I should have known better, but I really thought we might actually get somewhere in my little game of beat the clock.
