Infantile Spasms

I just watched this that I found from another blog that I read. It saddens me so much that children have to go through such radical surgery to get rid of their seizures. There are a few friends that I have met via blogs that have had this done. What a scary thing to have to watch your child go through. I am so thankful that medication worked for Nora. But I don't know how much damage her seizures did to her brain before she was finally diagnosed with Infantile Spasms. She went at least 4 months undiagnosed and untreated. That is a long time to mess with a developing brain.

I know she has come so far since then but she still has such a long way to go to catch up. If she can.

She is doing great so I should be so thankful and grateful for what we have and how far she has progressed but some days, it is hard not to think into the future.
