Two nights ago, Jade woke up in the middle of the night - as she often does. I climbed into her bed to help her fall back to sleep. As she drifted off, she had a big body jerk; you know, the kind that you get on occasion when you're falling to sleep?
A little while later, her legs twitched once or twice - the way they do when someone is dreaming. Leg twitches aren't common with Jade, so I'm chalking those up to normal sleeping movements, but the big twitch bothered me. It bothered me because I was really looking forward to saying that she had been seizure-free for three weeks. Could it have been nothing more than a normal going-to-sleep-myoclonic-jerk - the kind that everyone gets? Could that little technicality allow me say that, as of tomorrow, tomorrow she would be seizure-free for three weeks?
Alas, this morning, when she woke early and I crawled into bed with her so I wouldn't need to give her a 06:00 breakfast, I felt the very slightest of arm twitches.
We're back to counting from zero.
