Pay It Forward
On April 15, 2012, our healthy 2.5 year old son had a seizure, out of the blue just 3 weeks after the birth of 3rd son. In the next 2 months, Colin would spiral out of control, with medicine after medicine in hopes of controlling seizures now coming as often as 30 times per day. We were being seen at another hospital at the time and we were given devastating news, that Colin had a drug resistant "catastrophic" form of epilepsy and that the Colin we knew may be gone. We sat with the news for a day and tried to comprehend it. Then I got on the internet in hopes that the Dr.'s were wrong. We found Dr. Elizabeth Thiele and Heidi Pfiefer who are well known for the Ketogenic Diet. We spent several months in and out of MGH in intensive care watching Colin seize uncontrollably. Then, on August 11th, about 1.5 months after starting the diet, Colin's seizures stopped. We are so grateful and hope you can come celebrate, give thanks f or what we have and share with those who aren't so lucky!
