Ella and Milo and much much more.

We have been having a great time being with our family.   This past week has been really intense.  After Jamie, Michael and Milo were released from the hospital last Thursday (7/16) they had a setback on Saturday.  Milo had a small seizure on Saturday and then a bigger one on Sunday night.  After being rushed to St. Vincents Hospital on Sunday night they were admitted to the pediatric unit on Monday morning.  Milo had a few more seizures there and was transferred to NYU Medical Center PICU.  He underwent every test under the sun and was attached to an EEG.  He did have another seizure on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning and that’s when they started him on seizure meds.  He hasn’t had a seizure since last Wednesday.  All of the test that they did to find a possible cause for the seizures came back negative.  They have yet to find the cause and perhaps they never will, but Milo is responding really well to the meds and hopefully he will grow out of this.  Milo, Jamie and Michael came home on Saturday afternoon and are all doing really well considering,  They have a wonderful baby nurse Francine and they are becoming quite a team.  Here’s to you Milo – our brave little peace maker.  You are truly a gift and we can’t wait to watch you grow up.

Here are some pictures from the last few days.  At the end of this post, I am putting in 3 movies that I posted on Facebook.  They are of Ella and some of her summer adventures.
