I collected the presciption for the Melatonin this morning before coming to work and so we will be trialling it this evening to see how it goes. We have been looking forward to this day for almost 3 weeks now and so are happy this day has now arrived. Funnily enough last night I didn't put Elijah's heater on he slept through and so perhaps the temperature of his room is going to make some difference without freezing him. It is spring and so the days in the last week or so have been warm.

We had a great meeting last weekend with 2 other families with "angels" here in Christchurch. It was a great opportunity for the parents to talk with one another and compare notes and stories and encouragement. It was also a good opportunity for our "angels" siblings to meet and interact with one another. There were two other families who were unable to be with us and so hope that in November we will all be able to meet up. By then there will also be a sixth family resident in Christchurch.

Julie has also enrolled Elijah in some swimming lessons and hydro therapy - this will start in October and will run for about 12 weeks. I am sure he will both enjoy and benefit from both of these. It is school holidays at the moment and so Elijah's Support worker will not be at the preschool this week and next week and so Julie will be attending in her place.

Overall we are a happy family with things on the siezure front and we are looking forward to some good nights sleep ahead - yeah

Until next time.
