Meg


Meg's meds are really changing the world. I wish i could say this was a positive thing. I liked it better on Saturday.



She is very confused and seems disoriented and restless. She is drinking excessively and seeking out food and anything non-food that can be eaten; and she had had about seven or so park simes today. She has been downstairs all evening, but once when Mom asked if she needed to go outside she just ran up here. It was heart-breaking taking her back later. She drools and stands around and can't figure out how to be comfortable. I don't know how I will get through writing these papers this week... I just want to zone out and wake up and find that everything is normal again; but nothing will be normal any more.

Lots of hugs. Is it possible they could lower the dosage of the meds, especially if her seizures seem to happen more with her working? Perhaps if they could lower the dosage, it would still work without these side effects?

lowering meds
I think we're going to end up talking about lowering it or something. Dad asked me to look up stuff on side effects because she's drinking so much. I did,, and it says that most of the side effects diminish over time. That's sort of encouraging. What I'm wondering is whether we should be limiting her water intake or giving her free water... Is she drinking because she needs it/has dry mouth or because she is just drinking? Five relief times a day is reasonable. Ten is ridiculous. When I went to bed last night, she had just had her eighth. I think I heard my parents up in the night. This will get old really quick, and I feel guilty, like I'm just dumping my old sick dog off on them to do all the work now.

I wish there was something I could do to comfort you though all this. I know how much Meg means to you and how much this is tearing you apart inside. I want to be there for you and for as long as you need me. Just call my name and I'll be there.

*Hug to you, belly rubs to Meg and ongoing love to you both!*
