in his own bed :)

It is hard to be a parent.  It is hard to always know what to do.

When the seizures returned on December 20th, they were only happening during his sleep.  It was difficult to feel comfortable with just the baby monitor because they were often silent - except for the sound of gasping for breathe.  So we would let him sleep on the couch until one of us was ready to go to bed.  Or, we would just go to bed with him.

But, he's doing so well so tonight we have started him off in his bed again.

I'm sure he'll end up with us at some point tonight.

But for right now, I get to enjoy the little things like a
bedtime snack
tv time
and the biggest - getting to sit and talk with Leeon alone. 

It'll just be us on the couch enjoying the goodness of a reprieve from seizures.

My heart is filled with gratitude for the big things - like 2 seizure free days and the little ones too.
