Update on Tasya – November 2006

Many who read my blog are familiar with my daughter Tasya’s ongoing battle with epilepsy.  Today, I am happy to report that her seizure activity is at the lowest level since she began to have seizures seven years ago. My father-in-law will often times berate me for mentioning her improvements as it is often followed by a backslide, but I have always steadfastly refused to not put the best foot forward.

Watching her for the past few months has been a totally uplifting experience for all of us in the Schauss family. Her confidence is growing, her social skills are improving and she is so happy with herself that her biggest problem now is not having a seizure but how to act like a normal child again.

We have much more work to do, but seeing not only the light at the end of the tunnel, but the road away from the tunnel of darkness is very encouraging.
