Hello. My name is Abby. I'm eight years old and I was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome when I turned two. My parents work hard to help me make sense of the world around me and this blog is meant to help others understand my world and my journey with Rett Syndrome.

Abby is doing well enough to start back at school on Monday. She has been without seizures for a couple of weeks, and the medicine seems to have very few side affects, other than making her a little dizzy, or unsteady on her feet. We have lowered the dose almost in half, which has helped out a lot. She is walking independently again, but her balance is still not quite what it was before. She has run into the wall a time or two, and has almost fallen several times. We are letting her walk, but we're just staying close enough to catch her if we need to. We're thinking after a few more days, she won't even need us to do that.
