It has been an interesting year, as I have learned more than I ever wanted to know about brains and seizures. The word epilepsy has become a regular part of my vocabulary. We chose to forgo medications and try the Modified Atkins Diet (a more moderate approach to the Ketogenic Diet) to treat the seizures. Seemingly we have been rewarded and my son is doing well.
This year has changed me in ways I couldn't have imagined. I suppose it has changed our whole family. Some of those changes have been been good, some not so good. I still have a huge amount of anxiety over even the smallest of details but I am slowly getting better. DS2 is pretty patient with me and my "mama drama" and my other children seem to (for the most part) understand why I am so concerned. I continue to struggle to balance the overprotective instinct with DS2's need to grow and handle things on his own. It is a new season for us and I try to be Thankful to God for His mercy and that my family is still all together
