Collin is not sleeping these days. Well, not at night, anyway. At first I thought it was the full moon or something (which it was), but then the trend continued. There were a couple of nights when I got up almost every 15 minutes all night. Seems like I would just get up and do something productive, huh?
So, we're thinking it might be related to the weaning of his last seizure medicine, clonazepam. It's a sedating medicine and he has been on varying doses of it for almost a year, so a wean is bound to affect his sleep cycles. He's down to half of a pill once a day, and based on my experience I think that the end of a wean is the hardest. So, after this week, we will space the half pills out to every other day, every third day, etc. to give him as much of a chance as possible to adjust with minimal side effects.
At least he's not upset while he's awake. On the contrary, he gets talking or squealing and can't get calmed down. Here's some video from this weekend, when we discovered that he thought the sound of whipped cream spraying was hilarious. First, we emptied almost the whole can on our plates and then Grandad figured out how to make the sound on his own.
This, of course, is right before bedtime.
