Another one bites the dust!

I just weaved in the ends and wove the drawstring for the XL pair of longies I was working on this week. They came out stunning and I will load pictures as soon as they are done blocking.

We also discovered this week that Lamictil (one of the medications we are giving V to control seizures) has an interesting side effect. It makes her feel like she needs to use the bathroom constantly, we were worried it was a UTI but after taking her to the family doctor and having everything checked it seems it is definitely a side effect to the medicine. She has another increase in Lamictil coming this week so we will see how it goes. Lamictil has a great track record of seizure control (we have yet to see that but she isn't on a full dose yet) but does carry with it risks for a very serious allergic reaction, so when children are started on it they are titrated very slowly. She began it nearly a month ago and won't be on a full dose until next week, at which point we will see if the urge to use the bathroom constantly gets any better before we decide what to do next.
