Epilepsy Awareness Month

As I was changing my profile picture for Epilepsy Awareness Month on Facebook, I realized that I had not posted to the blog since Zac's big day! His surgery was in the middle of a new semester for me at work, and with three kids of my own, I guess I've just been busy with life.
His Intracranial EEG went great!
He has had a seizure since surgery, but I am very happy to say that tomorrow he will be 7 weeks seizure free!

This is the longest he's been since they started 4 years ago!! I've had the pleasure of Zac visiting a few times since surgery and he seems to be doing GREAT!! The hardest part is trying to tell a 10 yr old boy that he can't get on a bike, scooter, ect. But, all in all, I am amazed! I hope he will continue to improve. He had a check up with his Dr in Augusta on Monday and from what I understand it went very well. His parents went into this with the hopes of improving his quality of life. So far, so good. :)
I hope everyone will take a moment this month to learn a little about Epilepsy. November is Epilepsy Awareness Month.

Read an article, talk to someone affected by it, and help us to spread awareness. I know as a mother, that my sister has struggled with the "why my child" from time to time. I like to think that Zac was handed this so that he could bring people together and make the world a better place. And boy has he!! Thank you all for your calls, concern, and prayers! I hope he continues to improve and I will try to post more often. ;)
Until next time, spread the word, stay tuned, and count your blessings everyday!
