Ellie is sick again... nothing major... Just a really bad cough.cold, that when she coughs too much she vomits. I really cant wait for winter to be over, as Ellie seems to struggle this time of year... They doctor hasnt put her on antibiotics as she only finished a course 2 weeks ago, when she had the same thing. She is having a dose of steroid cough mixture, once a day for 3 days, and if she isnt better by tomorrow I have to bring her back and they may prescribe some antibiotics.
Another problem at the moment is that Ellie is doing 'strange' things, I know this sounds very broad, but it is. She does a clicking thing with her mouth, some funny 'o' shape with her mouth, and head and lip trembling. When she is doing these, it is quite repetitive. We dont know if it is seizure activity or seizure related. I spoke to Ellies neuro a few days ago, and he said before we put up her meds, he would rather do another EEG and see if we can catch Ellie doing these 'strange' things. This hopefully gives us a clearer picture of what is going on. My thoughts are that there is some sort of seizure activity going as when she has been doing the lip and head trembling, she has been quite vague... a sign of seizures with Ellie. Hopefully the EEG happens this week
Aside from this we are all good, and Ellie suprisingly still has her sense of happiness and humour, even though she is feeling a bit ordinary...
LOVE this girl to bits!!!
