   We are on our way to Duke to meet yet another neurologist. We left this morning around 5:30 am and hope to be home later this afternoon.  We scheduled this appointment 6 months ago and are finally getting to go to see yet another specialist at a very esteemed...

    When God chose us to be Drake’s parents 10 months ago, we had no way of knowing what lied ahead…..All we knew was what little the doctor’s knew, how fatal and severe this disease was, and our convictions that for as long as God kept Drake’s heart beating we would b...

   Drake’s seizures have hit an all time high…. He started Sunday seizing every 10 minutes or so and this continued until 10 pm Sunday evening when we had to give him a rescue med to ease them so he would sleep.  Monday morning he started very similar and ended the sam...

    Drake started seizing yesterday (Sunday) around 1 pm….. we have seen more seizure activity since we have been here but due to all the changes, this is to be expected.  Drake’s system is so sensitive that when he has the slightest change (constipation, sleep schedul...
