A rollercoaster kinda day...

 Today started out as any other day - don't they all?

We were running behind, I ended up driving all the kids to school, picked up friends and headed to drop Faith at preschool.

Today she actually cried when I left the room but I still left and figured she would be fine.  My mom was there to stay on site, so it should all be fine.

Went to the human resources office here to get Mr. Hockeys social insurance card replaced with only a passport and that was not good enough...they need to see the actual birth certificate.

So, we headed to our friends place for ladies breakfast.  I realized that I had left my cell in the van, but didn't go to get it, because really, who would be calling me?

Well, my mom called. 3 times. And I wasn't there to answer.  Faith had a seizure during preschool today. 

It happened just minutes after I left, and when I got there to pick her up, she was fast asleep on the couch in the common area.  She survived...without me.  They handled it fine, the teacher and my mom.  This is the first time that one of us has not been there for a significant seizure. 

And still.She survived...

Trying to piece this all together now, she had a seizure on Monday - after a rough night of sleep.  She had a seizure today - after a late bedtime and a rough night of sleep.  Both seizures happened between 9/930 in the morning.  Both were standing seizures.  1 was long and 1 was short.  1 needed ativan 1 did not.  I am seeing a few small patterns, and am thinking WONDERFUL...we have a ridiculously scheduled child. 

She is not going to be able to off her routine.  We are going to have to find a sitter who can watch her and put her to bed at night when there are events for the whole family.  We are going to have to adjust our lives...


Oh, and on the good news front Mr. Hockey started his first job tonight.  He is there for a few hours for training.  Then he starts tomorrow and works every Friday and Saturday. 

He is a dishwasher at a restaurant that is very close to our house.  He can walk there and we will pick him up afterwards (since it is late). 

The restaurant is sooo expensive that we would personally not venture there often.  It is one of those fancy places that you pay a lot for a little...

This is definitely a great step for him.  He wants to be a chef when he is older and this is a great place to get his foot in the door:-)  I am excited for him. 

Anyhow, that is my rollercoaster...the ups and downs. 

My life, and I love it:-)
