This morning she called out, "Mama!" and I went in her room to check her. She said, "A bah-wul (bottle) a-milk? Lay down a-pillow. OKAY!" Which roughly translated means, "Please fetch me a milk bottle while I lay here on this pillow." I did, of course, and she then told me, "Go sleep. Close door. Goo-night." Which translates to "Get out, I'm going back to sleep now."
She ate yogurt this morning, although she wouldn't go for any table food, sadly. She's been drinking well and all in all everything is just fine. The episode passed without too much fanfare and I'm feeling lucky today because of it. She's had ragers in the past, so when they don't hurt much, it makes me feel better. It is still stressful and sad and I never feel relief until we are sure it is over, but it is easier when it doesn't put her in unbearable pain. Yesterday most of her discomfort seemed to stem from the eye movements and nausea rather than any real pain. Whatever the case, we're just glad it is done.
In retrospect, I realized I double-jinxed us all. On Saturday, I openly discussed the recent lack of episodes. Then Sunday, I took down the blankets we had put up in KayTar's bedroom windows to darken it, because I was tired of seeing them there. I may or may not have said, "She hasn't had one in ages, why are we leaving these things up?" Ack, ack, ack. Roughly 6 hours later, BAM. "Here is the episode you requested." I'll learn one of these days.
On a BubTar note, he received an award at school today! Every day, the teacher gives out an award, different awards on different days, I think. Last week he received "I Did My Best Today!" which was nice after having a day last week where he was in a spot of trouble. Tpday, he received "Quiet as a Mouse!" which we had given up hope on. He just isn't a quiet kiddo and we were perfectly happy that he was doing his best, whether it qualified as being quiet as a mouse or not. But then today he surprised us! What a good boy, he is. He especially likes that the whole class claps for him when he gets an award. Kindergarten is a hit so far! You know, except all the germs. I had a meeting with his teacher last week and she just bragged on him. He's doing great academically, and he's really only been in trouble the one time, so far. His favorite thing about Kinder is the science experiments they do each Friday. On Community Helpers day, he told her that he wants to be a babysitter, because he is SO good with helping with his sister. And he's right, he is an excellent helper. His teacher told me "He just has the sweetest little heart, I'm enjoying him so much in class." She also mentioned he's having a bit of trouble paying attention, although it isn't affecting his learning. We've always known he can be a bit of a space cadet from time to time; he comes by it honestly, Josh can be one, too. She said she would watch it closely to be sure he doesn't start to miss things in class, but Kindergarten is definitely off to a good start and we are so proud of our big guy.
