Jade's seizures were getting so bad, that she was unable to look at me without having one. I cannot explain how upsetting it is, as a father, when your child is unable to look adoringly into your eyes for more than two seconds (I understand this never happens when children reach their teens, which is why I want to savour it now). We could not have a conversation or play games because the seizures kept interrupting her thinking.
How much things have changed in just a week.
Jade hardly had any seizures today, including the dreaded drop seizures (none of which sent her to the ground). Most of the time, she was in a great mood, and the one bout of whining she had this afternoon had nothing to do with seizures. She was active! Talkative! We had a conversation! She looked adoringly into my eyes for nearly a minute!
The ketogenic diet is working!
It's so wonderful, I can hardly believe it!
Please excuse me. I'm having trouble typing. Every time I think about it, this strange liquid keeps pooling in my eyes, obscuring my vision.
