One Year Ago...


We started the Ketogenic Diet. Yep, it's been one whole year. I'm so grateful to our wonderful Dr. He was confident in our abilities to maintain the strict diet. I've heard from many people that most Dr.'s don't even attempt it, because it involves so much from the parents, and is very time consuming. But for us, it has been a life saver. I know I've said it many times, but thanks to this diet, we got our baby back from those nasty seizures. Kendall has been seizure free now for 6 months. (with just a few scares in between.) I can't imagine where we would be if we had given up.
It's a shame more people don't believe in this diet. While it has side effects, it is NOTHING compared to the horrible damage daily seizures can do. The seizure meds wiped away our baby girl, but now she's back! We are so blessed.
Kendall is talking more, expressing her wants consistently, and interacting with others regularly. She is enjoying her life. And I couldn't ask for more than that :)
