3 year check up

Brayden had his 3 year check up this morning. He is growing! Some where around the 50 percentile for height and weight. He was not too pleased with being examined or getting a shot, apparently it wore him out because he slept most of the day.

Luke joined us this morning because he had his 5 year old check up (a few months late but we finally did it). In preparation, he dug out the doctor kit and gave Brayden a once over while I was loading the car.

The ketogenic diet seems to be going well. I am still getting the hang of things...hoping to pick up some speed because right now everything takes me too long to prepare. We measure out this concoction of different things to make his formula for the day, check his blood glucose three times a day and ketones (urine dip stick) 1-2 times per day, in addition to all of his other needs. The diet does not seem to be aggravating any of his GI problems. As for seizure control, only time will tell...about 2ish months before we may see an impact on his seizures but the doctors cannot really say how long.

What a sweet picture. I am glad the diet seems to be going well. It would be wonderful if this helps to control Brayden's seizures.
