Max: The Amazing Race

Like everyone else, Max had quite a year. The pandemic took him away from visits with his beloved grandparents so he had to learn how to navigate FaceTime, Zoom and constant texting -- just like any other 13 year old! Max is in eighth grade this year and has been lucky enough to attend school in person all year. His love of the musical Hamilton makes him a Revolutionary War scholar in history class, and he is doing grade-level math work, but where he really shines is in Chorus class. Unfortunately the pandemic has eliminated two years worth of choral concerts but that hasn't stopped him from participating in virtual porch concerts, pretending to lead the chorus in warm ups on the piano at home, or listening to Taylor Swift or the Disney Descendants soundtrack on repeat. Pandemic aside, this year has brought other challenges for Max as well. Max is working very hard on expressing his frustrations in appropriate ways through coping exercises and tools he's learning from a therapist. Max also got to spend a night at CCMC last month for a 24 hour EEG that showed us that Max was having seizures pretty consistently throughout the night. Fingers crossed a medication dosage increase eliminates those, or at least decreases the frequency. We're grateful these seizures are not happening when Max is awake, as that would cause more disruption to his learning and daily activity, but they are impacting his sleep and subsequently his mood. We continue to be grateful for the Epilepsy community and the Epilepsy Foundation of CT for being part of Max's journey and for providing the much needed support and resources that make navigating this life just a bit easier.
