Sleep, it does a body good...

17 hours.

The boy just slept 17 HOURS!

(Max sleeping in his chair before we moved him to bed.)

He woke up happy, and ready for school this morning. This is the closest to his normal I've seen him in a week!

We spoke to his neurologist again yesterday evening, and he wants us to take it slow with the new medicine. He said we'll be on the same dose for another week at least...we may not need to go up.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers and good wishes our way.

His PT came over yesterday to give him some compressions into his joints while he tried to snooze, and a little massage. That was it! He was out like a light. He only woke a couple of times for a diaper change, and we put him in bed, and ourselves, by 9:00! We all slept very soundly...well, except for the 4:00am diaper change. But, he slept until almost 7:45 this morning.

Steve asked him if he was ready for school today, and he gave us his signature Max smile. He's been wide awake and watching a few cartoons while he's eaten.

And kicked that blanket off...






He's still too fast for me to get a good picture of his no-toothed smile!
