increasing meds and other remedies

lexi has not been sleeping well and has had an increase in seizures at night so wednesday i called the neurologist. her neurologist was out of the office but her nurse called the neuro and she decided to increase phenobarbital to 5mls in the morning and 10 at night.with that increase lexi slept the best shes slept in a week. her nurse did happen to talk to me about different remedies that just might help her seizures and has printed off them and will mail them to me. some even include essential oils. she also told me about a research being done down at the childrens hospital with cbd oil. the neuro and her nurse are going to look into seeing how to get lexi into the research because they feel lexi would be a good candidate since she failed the vns and multiple medicines. onto other news we got about 6 inches of snow and the kids around here have now had 2 snow days. i went out this morning to a huge snow drift in front of my garage so im guessing im not going anywhere anytime soon.
