Seizure and Wedding News

Just because I haven't posted in awhile doesn't mean that things haven't been happening.  It actually means that too much has been happening and I haven't had time to sit down and write!
We haven't had any more babies since the pictures I've already posted, but should have some soon.  Reglisse is already at 360 days, and Atarah isn't far behind her.  They are both first timers though, so it's hard to say for sure.  I'll post pictures as soon as those babies get to the outside!
And now for some pictures of another sort.  I captured these just before dinner tonight.
201 days without a seizure.  We have started tapering me off of one of my seizure medications and so far I'm doing great without it.  It will be a long slow taper and there are no promises that it will work, but for now, I'm optimistic.  Prayer point for this: that I continue to remain seizure free and that the taper goes well with no  adverse side effects. 

And the wedding is 2 months away.  2 months.  AHHHH!  that scream is both excitement, nerves, and everything else.  Prayer point for this:  David is still not able to get here due to some visa issues.  Prayers that that clears up would be great.

And that's all for now.  It's bed time.

Alpaca Babies!

Atlas' First Dance (boy)
Cashew's Cantor (boy)
Atlas' Confetti with her mom Serafina (girl)
Daniel's Devotion (girl)

These babies were all born sometime in the last two weeks or so. So far they are all doing well.  Devotion and Cantor will need some extra watching. Cantor's mom only has a partially functioning udder, and Devotion's mom has an extra teat so she's at higher risk for mastitis.  The extra teat will also make it harder for Devotion to latch on, putting her at risk for not enough milk.

We have more moms ready to go any day now, so as long as the weather stays nice, we should have more soon.
