Unfortunately, Grandpa Bob continues to have seizures. They have not gotten any better, in fact, Mommy thinks they are now getting worse. He seems to be 'down' longer when having them. So far, they have increased his dosage twice with no results.
His leg's are still quite swollen from the heart failure. He's on medicine for that too.
Yesterday, Grandpa Bob started out-patient physical therapy at the same place. Mommy said she needs to go there for some mental therapy as her brain is tired. They are going to continue to try and strengthen his leg's because they are really weak. Grandpa Bob is still extremely forgetful which doesn't help the situation.
We brought Grandpa Bob a Coast Guard approved personal flotation device. That way if he has a seizure while in the pool, he will be safe. Mommy won't let him in or near the water without it on.
Grandpa Bob also loves to sit outside on our little patio. When he does, you can bet your bippie that we're right there with him keeping him safe from the Tree Rats.
I, Lily Belle, sit on the couch each morning with Mommy while Grandpa Bob is having his breakfast. I'm an excellent watch dog and alert Mommy every time he gets up from the table and doesn't use his walker. Grandpa Bob said I'm a tattle tale! Mommy said I'm a good dog! I think Mommy win's that round!! Muffin can usually be found UNDER the table where delicious morsels of food end up.
We are back to not getting much sleep now that he is home again. Grandpa Bob doesn't sleep well and Mommy has to keep checking on him. We don't want him to wander off. These seizures can be very dangerous so we're always on alert.
Muffin can sometimes be a dumb
Next week he is seeing a new Neurologist. We are praying that he can help Grandpa Bob find some relief from these seizures.
The good and important thing right now is that Grandpa Bob is home!
