The Past Year... of October 22nd of 2009, our anniversary date has arrived.

The anniversary of our 1st seizure. Most people look back and reflect on what a great year...I think I look back and am just grateful for getting through it with my sanity in tact.

Joaquin will be 5 month seizure free on November 12th. YEAH! Woo Hoo!

It's been such a crazy ride.

Our diagnosis, new neurologist, getting hospitalized, learning Joaquin displays 3 different types of seizures, starting and weening from a bunch of meds, EEG's, Dr's visits, maintaining a quality of life for him, and finally getting to a point where we are seizure free.

Through out this year, we have really strived to keep a positive outlook on things. I've had my days that were not my best, but for the most part, it has been such a great experience.

November is Epilepsy Awareness Month and also Joaquin's here's to my little man!

1st Day of Preschool!

Today, Joaquin started his first day of preschool. He has been talking about it for months! He would say..."In August, I'm gonna be a student".

It's been such a crazy rollercoaster ride with his epilepsy that we were worried he might not be able to start school this year. BUT HERE WE ARE!

We have been seizure free for almost 5 weeks! YEAH!

I wonder what the school year will bring, he is going to grow so fast!
I thought I'd be a wreck, but I think that I was so busy dealing with the Administrator that it disappeared. I am so proud of my little man!

Joaquin the Bean is now a student!

Our first trip out of state...

So...We are taking an extended weekend trip to San Diego. This is our first trip out of the state, since we have been diagnosed. Feeling pretty good about it, we have been seizure free for almost 3 weeks.

We have our Emergency meds and we will have my parents with us, so I'm not so apprehensive. My mom used to work in the ER and was an EMT for the fire department.

We are going to welcome my brother and his troop home from their 2nd deployment. Hoping the trip goes well and we have no major issues.

We'll be posting from the road! Check back for pics!

I'm hoping it will be a fun trip...we are taking an RV from Tucson to SD with 7 of us!

I'll post lots of pics when we get back !
