This past weekend Hannah was able to catch up with all her friends at Camp DreamCatcher. It is an epilepsy camp at Camp Kern in Oregonia, Ohio. She has been going to Summer camp (week long), Fall camp (weekend) and Spring (weekend) since she was 7 years old. It is wonderful time to just be a kid and do fun stuff. Everyone there can let their guard down because everyone there has seizures. It is the norm at this camp. It has been a wonderful experience for Hannah to meet other kids who go through the same ups and downs that she does. She looks forward to every camp and is sad to leave when it's over. Usually she is very sleep deprived when she gets back and she usually will have increased seizure activity for the next week, but it's worth it.
Blitzen wasn't a camper at camp this time. We decided to keep him home so Hannah could just have fun and not worry about anything else. This summer, I will work with a counselor so they can be the main handler while she is at camp. I will have to go through a little training with them. Believe me, there are many willing participants! They did get to meet Blitzen when we dropped Hannah off and were very impressed!
