Maggie’s Mom, Rachael, shares stories of other families she’s met, as well as news that the media will be continuing to follow her family’s journey in a recent blog post:
“The best part was talking with and hanging out with all the other families. Though we only briefly met some of these families when we first came out and all correspond on facebook, it’s like seeing old friends, embracing one another and so excited to be on this journey with each other. Hearing the stories of the results families are already seeing that have recently started the oil is SO encouraging. We will all have stories to tell, and these stories are going to be the ones that change the laws.
I’ll share just a couple:
A boy that wouldn’t engage or string more than a couple of words along, sits in the car and tells his mom, “looks like it’s just you and me mom” and is now constantly pointing out the window, “oh…look at the trees. See that mountain” He has smiles and is able to engage and play with his brother now. He has only been on the oil for maybe 2 weeks, and the best part…Yesterday he was 48 hours seizure free!!
A three year old little girl that has spoken much of anything for the last year and a half said “Mommy” the day after starting treatment!
Encouraging, eh? AMAZING!!! Disclaimer: As encouraging as this is, it could also get worse before it gets better. We could also experience a honeymoon period and then get yucky before it builds up in her system. Basically…I just try not to have any expectations of what’s going to take place. I am preparing myself for it to get worse first, but would love to be pleasantly surprised with results like these.
So, where are we in the process?!? We had a little hang up with the red card not getting to us so our original order for oil was canceled, but then, once we were able to track down the red card, I resubmitted the order and was able to be back within the original batch. We were supposed to be able to pick up the oil yesterday afternoon, but the lab results (all the oil is tested before we get it) were not back yet. So, crossing our fingers…we should be getting it today!!
We have a couple of news stations that want to follow us and document our journey, so they will be joining us for a portion of our day too today.” –Read full post at theselmiskis.blogspot.com
