No More Seizures! Knock on Wood
I chalk his absence of seizures up to a combination of the few months we did the ketogenic diet, to medicine and him just growing out of them. It's wonderful and I am so so grateful. He has been so aware, he looks and follows people with his eyes much better, he holds a toy more steady and shakes it around, he is constantly trying to move too. I just love how awake he is, it's like he woke up from a dream. He laughs again so much and smiles a lot. I am so grateful for this sweet boy that has come back to me. We used to call him Mr Giggles because he laughed so much, then when the seizures started up he stopped. With his new awareness has come some of its own challenges, like his frustration at not being able to do exactly what he wants to. But he is one of the most patient little boys I know, he is so sweet. He loves going on walks, car rides, to the store, errands, being around people and watching them. He loves attention and peek a boo games. His grandma and uncles are trying to teach him to scoot so he can move independently. We just love this little boy!
