We increase Mog's Tizanidine today. A morning dose added. She fell asleep. I worried. I sent her to school anyway, as she was having a big communication/switch access/SLT meeting. Oh, and a wheelchair appointment to sort out a bigger footplate.
One sleepy Mog probably better than one stiff and spasmy Mog, but I worried again about how useful the switch access appointment would be if she stayed fast asleep throughout it.
I shouldn't have worried!
We now have a Toggle Switch and mount on loan for the summer, and I must dig out our old Power Link box. I'm not sure I can replicate the music, but I'm sure we'll find something she enjoys just as much!
I've also got to get to grips with Power Point as apparently she'll be able to use this switch to tell stories. Anyone fancy coming over for a tutorial?
ps - one morning dose of Tizanidine and we can get her arms up over her head, her fists have unclenched, and she's sitting fully upright in her wheelchair. Past users; does this effect last or is it temporary?
