Working Mama with an Epileptic

Now days it's very rare for there to only be 1 working parent. With the economy both parents have to work. We are in that situation. I know Kadyn's health (as well as Kyle's of course) comes first, but I need to work to provide for my children. So with that said. The other day while at work, my shift was almost over. I checked my phone for the time and noticed I had a text, normally I check see who it's from, if it is from someone who does not have my child I just ignore it and go about my job. Well it was from Harvey, and I knew he was off work and had the children, so I checked it and it was a text saying that Kadyn was seizing. So I responded and asking him if he knew what to do, he said it had been done and he was waiting for Kadyn to come out of it. I then received a text that he was done seizing and sleeping it off, so I relaxed, finished my shift, cleaned up and headed home. When I got home Kadyn was still sleeping so I continued to let him sleep it off. About an hour later he woke up and he was fine, happy and playful. So I decided he was fine and it was just his stupid epilepsy reminding us that it is still here and will fire at any time. So I started researching different epilepsy treatments and found a research center in my area for Cannabis oil treatments for Epilepsy in minors. So, I am going to have a nice discussion with Harvey about this and possibly enroll Kadyn in this study. I am willing to try anything, and if a little Cannabis oil can help I am all for it! I am going to look into it more, call the place, talk to Harvey about it and will probably be making my final decision within a week or two, but something needs to be done. Kadyn can no suffer from these crazy seizures anymore. Perhaps on the Cannabis Oil we will see improvement in his skills.

I will be posting soon about my trip to WI. It was an over night trip...lots of tears but worth it to show how much my friends son ment to me.
