New medication change. Good grief- let's hope this works! I'm pretty sick of tinkering with Tristan's meds.
So, to recap, Tristan is currently on:
100 mg Seroquel at 7 a.m.
50 extended release Seroquel at 12 noon.
100 mg Seroquel at 3 pm
200 mg Seroquel at 6
150 mg Depakote at 6
That is a ton of medication!
Anyways, towards the end of the day, Tristan had been having a tough time winding down. It was somersaults all over the living room again. The doctor theorized that it was at the end of the 18 hour window for the Depakote, and prescribed a little dose of Depakote to get him through the rest of the day. It seems to be helping and the somersaults and frenzied, frantic movements have stopped.
At this point, if this doesn't work, I want to try something new instead of adding anything new into his current regime. It seems like an enormous amount of medication and he's only seven years old.
Tristan had a pretty good weekend. He had a baseball game in Kaneohe and I think the whole family enjoyed sitting out on the grass with the gentle sea breeze. He got hit by the ball at one point, but walked it off. He was so happy to be playing baseball and kept looking over to see if I was watching him.
We had baseball pictures taken on Monday and batting practice afterwards. He kept asking me if I was proud of the way he played. I told him over and over again that I was proud of him no matter what, whether he played baseball or not. Sometimes we all need to hear that we're loved no matter what, and he is no exception. He really is an awesome kid.
