About 6 weeks ago, unbeknownst to me, DH began reducing Flynnie's epi meds. He's on pheno and Kbr, minimal doses. When I discovered this, at first I was furious! Even though the meds make Flynn hyper-excitable and somewhat out of control I would never have dreamed of altering the dosage. DH cut it in half, eventually eliminating the Kbr altogether.

The result? No seizures in six weeks, a calmer and much more compliant boy, showing easy affection like he never did before, the glassy/glazed look in his eyes has disappeared, he's trimmed up considerably (the Kbr is SALT), and just all-in-all a more pulled together boy. I am over the moon with this outcome and I let DH know it.

The change was so subtle at first but when I asked if DH noticed a difference in Flynn's behaviour he agreed. That's when he told me what he had done.

Thought I'd share that with those who have read so many of Flynn's episodes.

That's great, Nance! Paws crossed that Flynn will continue to do well on less meds.

P.S.
I'm also hoping he'll keep just a bit (a tiny bit) of his inner rogue. ;)
