One moment and one day at a time

We have been home one week without going to the Emergency room or being hospitalized. This is good, but I still feel like I cannot breathe and relax. Lennon looks really good, his personality is back – the sassy, funny little guy who keeps you on your toes. And yet, I am filled with anxiety that I will wake up, or get a call at work telling me that Lennon has another hyper-ammonia episode.

But I must admit, it has been nice to be home on my days off, and come home from work and know that he is doing ok. A good indication for Lennon’s ammonia levels is his pupils and this morning they were normal – if is ammonia levels are elevated his pupils will get big – at times they will cover the entire Iris and pupil is all you see.

His behavior has leveled out some – but we still go through the motions of really funny to whiney and cranky – to temper tantrum from hell – but they have gotten better. Now I just need to learn to breathe during the times he is well.
