Okay... updating a bit....

Dr. Visickle(?) called last Thursday to let us know that all but the one test had come back and everything was in normal ranges. So while still waiting for the last results, it looks as though Benji has Ketotic Hypoglycemia. The treatment? Make sure he stays hydrated and eats complex carbs before bed. Along with the 3 meals and 2 snacks during the day. And when ever he isn't acting normal and isn't eating right... we now have a glucose meter to check him with. It's the OneTouch Ultra 2. Anyhow... that is that until we get those last test results.

On to the rather interesting and most awesome things....

After Benji had the seizures on Dec 8th he got more clumsy in his walking. And then suddenly he started jabbering ALOT more. Well... we are nearly 3 weeks after and the news is AWESOME! Benji is saying more words and using more signs, he is putting together sentences he has never put together before. (gimme that, hey, that mine, let's go) Benji is also more sturdy on his feet and not falling as much. And the major caught us off guard thing? The last two days Benji has been asking to go potty and he has peed in the potty 3 times now!

This is so awesome! Do you want to know why? It's so awesome because Benji had gran mal seizures. They are suppose to take speech away and they are suppose to cause problems in the neurological system. With Benji, God used the seizures to heal! When I cried my desperate cry that morning when we thought we were going to lose him, I begged God to heal my baby. I believe we are seeing the answer to that prayer.
