For the Love of Cutter

Cutter is doing WONDERFUL! He still has not had any seizures (that we have seen) since July 9th. We are very aware of the fact that he could be having them with no outward symptoms, but we are hopeful that he has stopped. The doctors won't say for certain if they think it's his medications or if he is just going through a good spell. The longest Cutter has EVER gone without seizures is 7 weeks, so if he continues to do well, then this will be a record for him!

We leave for Chapel Hill on Friday. They are going to drastically reduce his medications, hook him up to the video EEG and check for seizure activity. Beyond that we are unsure of what will go on. His surgery is scheduled for Sept. 6th, but if he continues to be seizure free then they may not do surgery at all!

First, and foremost, we thank God for His hand in all of this. We know Who takes care of our little boy. Secondly, we thank you for your continued support and prayers. We will continue to update as frequently as we can!

Have a wonderful week!

Chapel Hill Update


First off, Cutter is doing soooo good. He has not had any seizures in over a month! Cutter's neurologist at Chapel Hill called a couple of days ago to tell us that they did not need us to come on August 14th for testing. He wants us there on Sept. 2nd to do the testing and surgery at one time. There is one doctor that could not be present in August, and she specifically wanted to be there for all of Cutter's procedures. Chris told the doctor how well Cutter is doing, and he is very pleased. He said that they will reduce Cutter's medicine for his tests. If Cutter does not have any seizures after his medicine is reduced then there is a good possibility that he will not have surgery at this time. It would be wonderful if Cutter would go down to Chapel Hill, have his medicines reduced and continue to be seizure-free! Then, maybe, they would reduce his medications permanently and he will never have another seizure for the rest of his life! We are praying hard, and we know you are, too. God can work a miracle!!! He has already done so much for us and for Cutter.

We will keep you updated! Thank you again for all of the prayers and support!
