I come to you this evening/morning asking for prayers...
January has been my best month ever as far as seizures go...
Prior to the pregnancy, I was averaging a little less three per day (this is including the Ketogenic Diet).
Once pregnant, we saw a big drop. I only averaged about 1.25/day!!!
Since coming off the meds, my average has been about 1/day! Praise the Lord!!!
Well, these last four months have been wonderful!!
October, November, and December, I averaged .9/day. That's about 28 total for a month!! I've had months as high as 423!!!
Well, until Monday, I had only had 6 seizures total for the entire month of January!!!!!!!!!!!
Can I get some really loud, say it like you mean it, Praise the Lord's!?!?!?!?
Something went crazy on Monday...
5 on Tuesday
So, I had as many just today as I had in the first 23 days of the month!!!
We think this could be giving us some answers, though. Progesterone levels increase throughout pregnancy and start to drop to prepare for delivery. So, maybe progesterone is very protective for me. I spoke with my neuro today and she agrees and is going to try to call in some progesterone cream for me to start as soon as our sweet little girl is born. However, this could interfere with her ability to nurse, etc.
Thus, I come to you begging for prayers! All along, we have believed that this pregnancy could bring about a miracle, as the docs at the Mayo Clinic stated. So, we want to continue to believe that and see healing come through this...please join us in agreement that this is just the last hoorah of seizures and that I will be healed completely with her birth!! Please!
Thank you all so much! I'll wrap this up since I don't have any fun pics to keep you entertained!
Thank you for your faithful prayers!!!
