Update on Bethany:

We're going to try a medication to control seizures. Her doctor says this one has a 75% success rate, but may make her more anxious. So we'll see how it goes. I'm looking forward to trying something. At breakfast this morning, she suddenly collapsed into my lap as I was feeding her. Her yogurt and cereal flew everywhere! I spent ten minutes cleaning up the mess--but more importantly, we have the worry of her falling and injuring herself. Apparently she has a spinal cord defect at her neck. If she snaps her head back suddenly, she could seriously injure her spinal cord.
