Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, friends!

We have much to be thankful for this holiday season. First, and foremost, we are thankful for the reason that we celebrate Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ. We are thankful for our salvation and for all of the many blessings God has given us.

On December 2nd we welcomed Maverick Lane to our family. Cutter adores being a big brother and is incredibly sweet to him. Maverick is already three weeks old, and we are all in love with him!

Cutter continues to do very well, though his seizures have started back. They started back on December 3rd, and we attributed this to all of the excitement and new routine since the new baby arrived. However, we feel like we have settled into a good routine, yet Cutter continues to have anywhere from 4-20 seizures a day. They upped his medicine (Dilantin) two weeks ago and lowered his Keppra based on his latest blood work results. We were hoping to see a positive change in all areas because of this but, so far, nothing. The good news is, however, that the seizures have not affected Cutter the way they have in the past. He bounces back very quickly and continues with whatever activity he was doing before he had the seizure. The seizures are very brief (seconds) and very mild.

We will call his doctors next week just to give them a report. We will continue to pray for God's guidance and will to be done when it comes to Cutter and his disorder. Thank you all for your prayers and support. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
