 Because it is worth a post

It can not go with out note that we are once again seeing alot of this -

As I stated in a previous post, K has been on a new medication with the goal of preventing migraines, and the side effects were wreaking havoc on him {and us...}.

It seems like right around the 2 week mark of being on this medication we began noticing his body adjusting to it.

He began to get his concentration and longer attention span back

And is definitely smiling more.

Have I mentioned lately that his smile is one of my favorite sights in the whole entire world? It is.

More than anything, I am just so incredibly proud of this little man.

I know it must have been horrible to feel all chemically off balance and weird with this new medication.

You could just tell by watching him when he would flip out that he felt really jittery and off.

We talked to him over and over about how much we understood that this was really hard for him, but that he had to use restraint. He had to teach his mind and body to stop and take a few minutes to regain his composure.

How hard is that? For a seven year old!

We have watched him intentionally hold back and bring himself under control several times over the past few days and it is crazy amazing to see him making these victories.

Does he still throw fits? Um, yes. -Just like any 7 year old with a great huge sin nature (Or even like a 29 year old recovering sin adict). :) But - the difference between right now and a week ago is really big.

The best news of all? He is still migraine free. In a few days he will reach a milestone of longest migraine free streak in at least 7 or 8 months.

Such great news! What a great smile! And I'll keep praying that he continues to get better! Thanks so much for the update.

So glad K is feeling better. Migraines are pure hell! I've thrown up from a few of them and gone to the hospital for a few too. He's such a strong little man!

What great news!!! Praying the headaches are a thing of the past for a long time!

Katarina said...

Praise God! Praying that these new meds continue to be what K needs right now.

Oh thank you Jesus! This is the best news I've heard all day!

Praise the Lord!

You and Dave are amazing. K is so blessed to have you, as are you two with him. Everytime I look at him I smile. He truly is a heroic angel. So glad his migrane medicine is finally starting to fall into place. Prayers have been answered. :)

Rach@In His Hands said...

Yay for K! I'm SO thankful that he's now used to his medication and that it's helping him! That's is awesome.

That smile of his is priceless.

Good job, Little Mister! SO glad to hear he's adjusting! Migraine free would feel miraculous...even for a 33 year old mom! Praying for him!

This post just gripped my heart - for a couple reasons. Being migraine free ... it almost makes me cry. I have gone through a lot of pain and migraines are the worst I have experienced. The thought of that and your sweet boy just make me heart so glad!

Also I have a seven year old boy over here who we are working through some hurdles with and we are using such similar language. We keep telling him :Train your brain, buddy, you are doing so good, just be patient with your brain and we'll teach it with you." Separating his failures from his identity and instead explaining that we get that it is physiological has made TWO years worth of struggle change for us.

I heard so many similar overtones in how you are rooting your sweet boy on, too. I know the situations are different but just wanted to say I am rooting for you as the mom!

lots of love
