What a week!

This week was challenging. Koolio is a great dog but he's a dog. He loves Hannah's chicken nuggets which does not make her happy. LOL! I'm not sure how to get it through his head that he needs to leave it alone. It's like as long as he's in an under he doesn't touch a thing but if he's up and around everything is fair game. He also was not doing well obedience wise at school this week. Not obeying commands and even barking. I think he's probably just testing the waters to see what he can get away with but....I've got a call into the trainer for suggestions. We have 4 days to work on obedience before he returns to school on Tuesday. He's not a bad dog. He's actually quite amazing. There are just a few things we need to work on and that was expected. He and Hannah are getting closer and closer. She calls for him often and especially when she's upset which is wonderful to me. If he can be a comfort to her, then YIPEE!

Oh, I was so thrilled today. Hannah's teacher said she ate some of her hamburger at school today and all her tator tots! She ate something besides a chicken nugget! That's exciting! LOL!

Last night we went to let the GA's at Central Baptist meet Koolio. They asked really good questions and were so sweet to Hannah. Koolio loved doing tricks for them. Rachael took pictures of them as a group and I had my camera in my purse but my brain dead self didn't remember it and didn't get a picture. Hopefully, she will be able to send me a copy and I can post it on here. These leaders and girls were lifesavers and will always hold a very special place in our hearts. They'll be amazing women some day.

On Monday Hannah sees Dr. Malik (epileptologist). I'm anxious about it and hopeful too. Hannah's had seizures since she was 7 mths old and just now her neuro turned her case over to a epilepsy specialist. It took us 7 mths to get into him. I've sent him a letter several months ago outlining Hannah's seizure history and my feelings about her past and current treatment. I never know how a doctor will take me. Some think it's great that I'm so involved in Hannah's treatment and others don't appreciate it at all. So, if you think about it Monday around 11 a.m. say a prayer for us. We really feel a change in medication is warranted becasue of the emotional disturbances Hannah's experiencing and continued seizures of different kinds manifesting. On top of the past three status episodes she had. Of course changing meds is scary stuff too, but after Keppra was added our little girl became miserable and cries alot. It has kept her from going status but hopefully there is something else that will do that too.

There are 13 fires in counties west of Dallas. Please pray for those affected.
