The Latest

Hello Friends,

Here is a quick Cutter update. Cutter is still having small seizures. They continue to be short and do not seem to affect him like they did when he was younger. We were hoping that the new dosage of medicine would stop the seizures again, but so far, no luck. We do not go back to Dr. H. until September.

Cutter continues to do well with his therapy, and he is such a joy to be around. He is truly a blessing! Thank you for your continued prayers and support! We know that it could be much worse. We are so thankful that he continues to thrive and be active! :)

We will keep you updated!

Cutter Update ~ August

Just a quick update about Cutter. He went over seven weeks without a seizure! Then, he started having mini ones again. They are very brief (15-20 sec) and do not seem to really affect him. He sometimes will get sleepy afterwards, but for the most part just goes back to what he was doing before. When I called the doctor they told us that when we had his levels checked in June they were on the low end of normal. Since he was doing so well Dr. H. did not want to change his medication yet. However, since he was starting to have seizures again he went ahead and upped the dosage on the Zonegran. After upping the dosage he continued to have a few seizures for two days. However, he has not had any seizures since Sunday. So, hopefully, that will do the trick!

He continues to do well with his physical therapist and is very mobile now! I can't believe how fast he is growing!

Thank you for your continued support and prayers! We certainly couldn't get through this without them! :)
