As the weekend comes around again, I very much want to avoid what happened last weekend. Last Saturday night, Willy didn’t take his anti-seizure medicine. He didn’t take it Sunday morning either. Late Sunday afternoon, I checked, and made him take a dose right then, and then pushed back his evening dose. But that means he still missed a dose.

While he didn’t seem to have any seizures, it’s still a risk with every missed/delayed dose. The problem is that routine is a key factor in remembering to take it, and our weekend routines are rather muddled.

We need to get a good non-school day routine in place to make sure that we stay on top of this. I’ve never been very good at the whole medicine regimen thing, but this is too important to muff up. And Winter Break is coming.

    For years now, I’ve set out Ray’s meds and vitamins next to his glass of water at breakfast. Seems to work for us.

  2. Thanks, Kate. We’ve tried something similar, but sometimes I’m not there in the morning.
