    Try to educate everyone on what to do if your child has a seizure. That way, they will not be afraid of witnessing one.

    What he said. Have the union or HR department supply you with the proper FMLA paperwork. This should have been done already when you explained your issue to you supervisors. Get the doctors to sign and back date the paperwork to the date started to miss work. This will remove sick days from your record. I believe you can go back one month. This is important. You may want to talk to HR and explain your situation. You MUST turn in a written report after each visit to the doctors that required you to take a sick day. You are not required to turn in doctors note but I would. This will help you prove a need for extended leave. Good Luck and if you need assistance pm me ill get ahold someone to help you.

    Have an emergency "hospital bag" packed and in the closet for those unexpected trips to the ER.

    It isn't the THC in cannabis that is having such a drastic improvement effect on seizures. THC is just one of 60 plus cannabinoids in cannabis, one of four primary ones. It is the one that has the most "high" effect. The one that helps the seizures is also under research for its improvement on shrinking, slowing, preventing breast cancer tumors. It's called CBD, and does not cause much if any stoned effect, especially the stuff they've concentrated down to oils.
    Yes,there are hundreds of cannabis strains with CBD that also have the cannabinoids that get you stoned, because many people, medical need or not, want that feature. But there are also ALOT of products that are specifically designed to eliminate any stoned effects and effectively target pain, nausea, intestinal disorders, spastic tremors, tumors, SEIZURES, because so many want that. It's a veteran cop in another state who has turned around his opinion (a 180, not a 360, for fans of Shush's thread ) and now actively lobbies to legalize these forms of MMJ in his state.

    Best wishes on a wonderful, quality, SEIZURE FREE life for your daughter and she is already two gigantic steps ahead for having you and her mom in her life!!

The dog really is awesome, and she really listens well (walking without a leash good). In regards to the training, it has helped with everything for sure (especially where the go bag is and how fast we can get into my truck). It just boils down to the fact that I am much calmer under pressure than the rest of the family, but I shouldn't look down on them for it. They don't have the same life experiences I do (and I hope they never will) so there isn't that same "baseline" to fall back on.
    You are doing good work. Keep it up!

    Try some Enya. My wife stole all my CDs and will play them during class to calm them all down. Instead of teacher she should be called a snake charmer.

    Yeah, we are definitely exploring all available options for sure. We've got to go to Salt Lake City for some appointments at the end of the month, so we'll get a good idea of where she is at.

    Good luck.
    My wife would definitely have to do it for sure... And it looks like a great solution.
