CT Scan, take 2

Thank you all for praying for Lily this week, with special intercession from St. Jude.
We met with the neurologist on Friday and he said we can up her dose one more time, if she has another seizure (she had one on Wednesday). We're also looking into some alternative medications, since the other two prescription medications he suggested have pretty depressing potential side effects.
We did find out that Lily has gained about 11 ounces this past week, and is now over 15 pounds! Her head circumference has also grown about a half an inch. We are very happy about this!
She has had a renewed interest in food the past two weeks and her speech therapist said Lily is doing a very good job. Lily also rolled over again, though she was unhappy once she got to her tummy. Little inch-stones, making progress.

Tomorrow morning Lily will be having another CT Scan, to check on her skull bones. She will most likely have to be lightly sedated for this, which means no food 4 hours before hand. That could mean a grumpy Baby and frazzled Mom. Your prayers are appreciated (it's at 11 am).

Happy Feast of Sts. Simon and Jude tomorrow!
