He finally did it!

After the successes of a few days ago, Evan didn't progress any further. We gave him one of the new pills and he'd stick it in his mouth for a while, but didn't get it down. He said he couldn't do it. I tried to convince him otherewise, but it didn't seem to do much good. He continued to take the old capsules, but he was swallowing those whole.

Then, last night, in the middle of a serious light saber fight (do those boys do anything else these days?), Drew came to tell us that Evan was acting funny, and he thought Evan was having a seizure. Sure enough, he had one that lasted about 10 minutes. Later, I told him (once again) how important it was that he learn to take the new medicine.

This morning, I gave him one of the pills and told him that he didn't have a choice. He had to take this pill. He had it in his mouth for probably 20 minutes, but when he sat down to eat his french toast, it went down with a bite of food! He had done it! We had a short celebration. He called Mommy to tell her (she is at work today). Everyone gave him a hug.

Then I told him he has to swallow TWO of those tonight.
