Well ... Maylene hit the peek of her cycle Sunday, right on schedule. For the first time in 7 weeks she raged. It lasted 1 hour and 40 minutes. What started it? She did not want to get dressed for bed. We knew it was coming because the signs were all there. Nan's little chihuahua Chico loves Maylene and will even sleep in her bed but with out fail on the days that she ends up raging and even before it is clear to us that she is having a problem he will not go near her and will not let her near him. Apparently he is like one of those seizure dogs and knows something is going on with her.

We called the CBA Oscar and he advised us on how to handle the rage at the time. That was helpful. She did begin improving Monday and continues to do well. Her psychiatrist made a med dose adjustment. She has been growing quiet a bit. She is now head to head with Carter and all of her clothes are getting short. She is also eating like a truck driver. So it would appear that she the growth spurt is messing with the med level.

Carter is back on track and doing really well. Vivian has been helpful and cooperative and her grades are really good also. Evan is the potty champ and although he is battling a little cold right now he is doing great.

Grandma is here this week for a visit and I am enjoying that. Jeremy is doing well too and so I guess that is it for the update.
