I had seen a bunch of fondant Toothless dragons on Pinterest, that people had made for the tops of cakes.
I had some potters clay in the fridge leftover from a school function, so I thought, why not, how hard can it be?
So I looked at the pictures online and made baby Toothless.
After I took those first pictures, I redid his eyes so they were a bit more round, moved his nose holes up, and added a fish in his mouth.
I used a zesting tool to get some pattern on his legs and tail.
Then I dried him for a few hours in a low oven.
And when I took him out, all the pieces fell off.
So I spent the next hour gluing everything back on.
Once everything was reattached and the glue was dry, I painted him with craft paint.
Somewhere between painting and picture taking, I lost a toenail.
Once he was dry, I sprayed him with a clear coat.
He took his position on top of the birthday cake for the party.
I'll do a full birthday party post when I get a chance.
Now for an update on the birthday boy:
He had his EEG today, so they could confirm the preliminary diagnosis of Absence Seizure Epilepsy given on Tuesday. The guy doing the test said he got everything he wanted to get during the two hours we were there. He couldn't share much with us because of policy, but we do know he had two seizures while hooked up to all the wires. One while he was awake and one while he was sleeping.
Which would explain why his mama thinks he looks tired all the time.
So now, we wait for the neurologist to share her findings with our pediatrician. I'm hoping for some news tomorrow, but it will most likely be next week.
Our pediatrician will then let us know what the next step is.
I talked to him on the phone for a long time last night and asked the questions you don't want to have to ask. He said, if it were his son, he'd want an MRI done. So depending on what the neurologist has to say about the EEG, that may be something that gets added to the calender.
Hurry up and wait.
So that's where we're at tonight.
The poor kid was nauseous and had a fever of 101 this morning, and had a massive headache most of the day. I don't know if he's trying to come down with something, or if it's just all the stress, anxiety, missing time from school, everyone talking about him, Mom constantly asking if he's okay, etc.
I hate this.
I'll do another update as soon as I know anything.
