Day 3. I think it's starting to hit me that this is actually working. I keep hearing that there isn't a 'honeymoon' phase on the diet like there is on the medications, but my heart is still cautious to believe. But we have been noticing a change and others have too! Ben is coming back. He is being healed. We are privileged to get to see the hand of God moving in his little life.
This picture captures some of the differences:
But look at him tonight! I have tears in my eyes because my heart is starting to actually believe that it is working! He wants to play - not lay around and watch TV. He has energy. His sense of humor is returning - at times to our chagrin. But at this point, we welcome it. :)
We took him to the pediatrician today and he has bronchitis. After a call to the dietitian and some mathematical calculations regarding the number of carbs in the medicine, he can take his antibiotic (the adult version) without having to adjust his diet. The good news is that he hasn't run a fever so hopefully we can continue to get through this little patch of illness seizure free.
I just listened to Ben play this song on his drums - wow! "If God is for us - who can be against us?"
