Hello Friends! Just a quick Cutter Bug update. Cutter is doing wonderful! Still no seizures since Feb. 21!!! We are so very thankful! First, Cutter had a neuro-psych test on May 31st in Chapel Hill. They wanted to see where he is developmentally. The first part of the test went pretty rough. Cutter acted like every other typical two year old. A mind of his own! He did a little of what they wanted him to do, but not everything. We decided to take a break, grab lunch and try again later. When we came back from lunch he did MUCH better, and we were able to see him do some of the tests that they really wanted him to do. We have not gotten a report yet about their findings. We are anxious to hear what they think! Cutter did have to have a repeat MRI done on June 5th. However, they did not charge us for this MRI since they made the mistake of doing the wrong kind of MRI in April. We were very glad to hear this. We have not gotten the results from the June 5th MRI yet, but we are waiting on Dr. Huffstutter to read the scans, as well. Dr. Elkay said that the MRI in April did not show ANYTHING on Cutter's brain. They did not see that he had Cortical Dysplasia at all. So, before we get our hopes up we want to hear what Dr. Huffstutter says about the scans. This has happened to us before at Chapel Hill. When we first went down there two years ago they did not see anything on Cutter's MRI. They had to repeat the MRI and have different people look at them before they came to a consensus that they did see evidence of Cortical Dysplasia. It would be wonderful if Cutter no longer had FCD. Then this would probably mean that Cutter would not have anymore seizures, and that God has cured him. We know that God can certainly do that! Hopefully, soon, we will know more about this situation. Please, please keep praying! We wouldn't be where we are today without the support and prayers of everyone around us! We will update as soon as we know more!
