And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

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...
I had:

3 Monday
5 on Tuesday
6 Today

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!!!


  1. Will be praying. I found your blog through the keto group on yahoo. My 19 month old is on it also. I hope and pray things calm down as you prepare for the arrival of your little miracle. I was able to bf my daughter for 8 months before starting keto and I am so very thankful. I know how very important it is but plently of babies are very healthy without but if you are interested you can always go with donated milk. Sounds gross but I have friends who have used it both for their babies and donated themselves. Just an idea. :)

  2. Meredith,
    There is a miracle for you and my son! The last 6 months have been horrible but we have learned so much. God has a plan for us all. I have prayed for a cure for 9 years and I believe he will give us the answers. He has already. We just have to go through these trials which are so hard but we learn so much on the way.
    Praying for you and your baby girl. Take care Meredith.

  3. We will be praying for you, girl! Hopefully this is the Lord's way of showing you what you need for after the birth, and that Little miss is coming soon!

    Hang in there :)

  4. Praying with you precious lady!! He IS able!!

  5. We are definitely praying!!

    I love this passage in Isaiah 43:
    Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, you God, the Holy One of Israel, Your Savior!
