New Appt.

Hello Friends!
We have been trying since June 1 to get an appt. with the neurosurgeon in Chapel Hill for a consultation. After numerous phone calls and messages, we finally got a call back. We have an appt. on July 8. Even though Cutter is doing great (18 days without a seizure!!!), we still want to talk with the surgeon about the risks and benefits of Cutter having surgery. We may go down there and find out that he is not even a candidate. Until we get all of our questions answered we definitely can't make any decisions. Dr. Huffstutter thinks we should still have a consultation, as well. So, please remember us when the time comes!

We continue to be grateful for all of the support and prayers. God has definitely taken care of our little man and will continue to do so.

We will keep you updated!

6 Months Already!

Hello Friends!

Cutter had his six month check up yesterday! Wow. Time flies. And I hate it! He did wonderfully. The shots hurt, but he was a brave little boy! He weighs 19.8 oz. and is 28.5 in. long. :) He is getting so big.

Seizure-wise he is doing GREAT! He has not had a seizure in 10 days!!! We are so very thankful and thank God for all He has done. When people tell us that the medicine is finally working all we can say is that it's not's prayer! God is definitely taking care of our little Cutter. Developmentally he is right on track now with just a few setbacks with motor skills. However, physical therapy will be starting soon so that will help in that area. He is even sitting up now!

We thank you all for your continued prayer and support. :)

We will keep you posted!

Hello Friends!
I can't believe it has been almost a month since we last posted about Cutter. There has not really been anything new. Cutter is still having a few seizures, but they are only lasting several seconds instead of minutes. He continues to progress and is growing like crazy. He can now roll over all over the house, and we can't keep him still. He said his first word this week-"Dada". Sometimes it sounds like "Daddy." He continues to be the sweetest child and is incredibly happy and good-natured.

We went to Dr. Huffstutter today. He was very pleased with Cutter's progress. He took him off one of his medications (YAY) and will see him again in six weeks. He told us that he thought it would be a good idea for us to go ahead and talk with the neurosurgeon about future surgery. He said that now would be a good time since things have settled down and everything is calm. Surgery may or not may not be in Cutter's future, but before any decision can be made we need to have ALL of our questions answered.

We took Cutter to the CDSA in Morganton for an evaluation a few weeks ago. He scored very well in all areas but is in need of some physical therapy for his gross motor skills. Cutter will have a case worker and will hopefully start physical therapy services soon. We were especially pleased that Cutter scored above his age in the cognitive thinking skills area. (All mamas need to brag about their babies every once in awhile!!!)

Thank you for your continued support and prayers. PLEASE don't stop! We will keep you updated!!!
