<ul><li> 1. A MOTHER'S DAY STORY A beautiful baby boy was born. His name is Avery. Changing diapers, night time feedings, and "ma,ma", "da,da". Then come the "terrible twos!" Not the regular "terrible twos". Iwould call them the "blessing today twos". On January 9,2005, while at day care, Avery started having tonic clonic seizures. (JohnHopkins medicine.org) He was sent to the Emergency Room. While there he had to be resuscitated. Tonic clonic seizures were called grand mal seizures. Avery would begin having myoclonic seizures.(John Hopkins Hopkinsmedicine.org) Avery's mother, Jennifer could not let her emotions get the best of her. She had to become strong fast. She had a lot of questions she wanted answered. Epilepsy medicine is hard to keep track of when there is more than one. Think about giving medicine to a two year old. Some days were Add harder text than others. Side effects were hair loss and one caused short term memory loss. A very's health started getting worse when he started having seizures during the middle of the night. Jennifer said she was blessed daily when she could spend time with Avery. The doctors said they didn't know what they could do to help. Jennifer found out about the Ketogenic diet. This diet helped for weight loss and epilepsy. Tried it. To make up for weight loss, Avery had to drink heavy whipping cream, eat one part carbohydrates, and eat four part fat. Starting at two years old it was hard. He had to give up some food that he liked. (Ketogenic diet www.epilepsy.com) Avery proved that strength was in his genes and that he could conquer anything!! Give him a ball and he will kick it, bat it, or catch it. Show him a wall and he will climb it. After starting the Ketogenic diet, his seizures during the day stopped. Not long afterwards the moghtly seizures stopped.Finally the seizures completely stopped and he came off the Ketogenic diet! The first thing that he asked for to eat was a banana. Happy Mother's Day to a Strong, loving, never giving up mother, JENNIFER! Happy Mother's Day to all of the MOTHERS Who are also strong and loving to children with EPILEPSY Avery's story is on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMO4J396J_Y#t=46 </li> <li> 2.
