Latest Notes On Eli

My son’s newest appointment is finally set! He’s going for a brain wave study on Monday the 12th of this month. Then we’ll go from there.

After many curve balls and such it’s good that it’s going to happen. The only major issue, I can pretty much bet he’ll be cranky leading up to the test.

They want him to fall asleep for it, so we were told to keep him awake later than usual so he’ll be tired enough TO sleep during the test.

If that helps to get to the bottom of his issue, and thereby helps us get it appropriately dealt with, then so be it.

A New A.M Update

As some may have noticed if they follow it, my art gallery blog is on hiatus for the time being. I am enjoying stepping away from it for now.

Anyway, in other news, my son is going with his class to the arcade later today. If we (Courtney and I) had asked, I’m sure we could have gone along as chaperones, but unfortunately we didn’t.

In further news, I got a $109.00 charge from an antivirus company whose services I don’t even use anymore, so I was a little bent about that, (ok, full disclosure maybe more than a little.)

I’m not dwelling on it too much, but I am going to make sure I don’t have that issue again.

Also, on another note, but still tech related, I cancelled the auto-renewal on all my paid/premium domains here. It’s better (at least for me) to have the manual renewal option, so I can assess my finances before any renewals need to be done and decide if they’re feasible in my circumstance.

While (obviously) I’d never want to lose my premium domains accidentally, I also don’t want to have charges I may not be able to afford at any given time.

Anyway, I don’t want to turn this into a novel length post, so I’ll wrap it up for now.

Curveballs Have Come Our Way, But We’ll Figure It Out

I’ve noticed lately writing prompts coming up when I open a new thing to write a blog post. That’s great for occasions when inspiration may be lacking for some of us here on this platform.

Anyway, I do have something to share about. I called the neurologist office recently as planned, but then they couldn’t find the proper referral on their computer system or some ridiculousness.

I called my son’s PC physician back, and now I have to wait until Monday to call the neurologist office back, seeing as they are not open on weekends. I am slightly annoyed but making the best of it.

My son (thankfully) is doing fine at present. The neurologist we’re being referred to now isn’t in Twin as we originally planned, but all the way in Salt Lake City, Utah.

We’re still trying to work out how we’re going to get there, and the other details/finer points.

Eli Had Another Seizure Yesterday

My son had another seizure, so much for our hope that the last one would be the only one. Thankfully we were able to get in touch with his PC physician and he has been notified.

We were told to call the neurologist, which I will do as soon as the office opens in the morning. This time we were told his blood pressure dropped as well, so there’s another concern.

Brilliant Talents and Heartbreaking News

I just read this morning that Clarence Gilyard, known to me for his role as Ranger James Trivette in the classic Walker, Texas Ranger television show, has died at 66.

I do not know the cause of his death at this time, but I will say he was a talented man and will be greatly missed.

This news follows on the heels of other news the other day that Jason David Frank (actor and martial artist) also died, with some people online saying he committed suicide.

My heart goes out to both of these men’s families ♥️.

Day Notes

Good morning everyone,

Had fun yesterday playing with my son, he has Minecraft toys and a remote control car he got for his birthday. We actually went outside for a bit, I was glad to see him having fun.

Currently, he and his mother are still sleeping. I’ve been up a while creating new art. I’m probably going to sleep here in a little bit.

I will share more here when I’m more fully awake, my eyes are barely able to focus at the moment.

Eli’s 9 Year Wellness Check Notes

My son had an appointment today (his nine year wellness check.) It went great, but he’s being referred to St. Luke’s in Twin Falls for an in depth neurologist visit. It’s just a precaution on our part since he had the seizure at school a while back.

I’m hoping no issues are found, but his PC physician is concerned that there may be something more substantial going on.

Guess we’ll see, please keep him in your prayers. Thank you all in advance.
