We had another OT therapy session today. I feel like a broken record when it comes to discussing Brooklyn's issues but I'll be honest and say it's consuming me. I worry day and night about her diagnosis, her future, the months and months of therapy she is going to have to endure. It all makes me so sad. I feel helpless. I am helpless. I brought up a few of my concerns which Janet was concerned about as well and said that I should take videos of her and bring them to her neurologist appointment on the 27th. I've mentioned her eyes before but other concerns are that she has been jerking her body to the right when holding her in a sitting position. She said she could feel all her muscles stiffen and contract and felt the movement was involuntary. Along with that she is also making an odd facial expression that happens randomly. B also has frequent staring spells that last 10 second or so. You can say her name over and over again or snap your fingers and she is just in another world. They happen off and on all day. She said she thought they were a type of seizure called "Absence seizures" and after reading about them it seems to be what I'm seeing. I'm going to speak to the Dr. about it and try to get a few video clips to share with him. I'm also going to start keeping notes; how often does she have them, what is she doing when she does have them, how long do they last etc. Could there possibly be anything else wrong with this poor girl? I know with many of the neurological and genetic disorders there are a list of symptoms they have and she certainly has her fair share.
