INITIATION OF THE KETOGENIC DIET.

(UPDATE: Cole was on the diet from January 2010-January 2011...his seizures went from 100+/day to 15/day...Cole wouldn't do the diet anymore...which was a blessing because we would have been satisfied with 15/day and wouldn't have found out what was wrong with him in February 2011)

Cole went into to the hospital on 1.25.2010 & was there for 3 days.

THE 1ST DAY:
-He BLED on EVERYTHING because one of the nurses didn't secure his band-aid on tight enough.
-Has his 1st 3 meals...then THREW-UP all 3 later that night.(VERY 1st TIME HE HAS THROWN-UP...EVER!!!)
-Since he threw-up, we gave him a bath...he can no longer use the Aveeno Baby we usually use (while he is on th diet because it contains carbs). We used Johnson's Baby Wash instead (which he's never used) and he got HIVES...while mommy get hosed down with the water from the nozzle!!!
-Then SCREAMED from 4am-8am because he was teething.
-and got his blood drawn & vitals checked EVERY 4 hours...even in the middle of the night.

THE 2ND DAY:
-Today was a better day...he ate his food...and got his blood/vitals taken every 4 hours.
-but, NO DADDY today...he was at school. It was BOARING for mommy.

THE 3RD DAY:
-YEAH!!! Daddy is HERE...no school today!
-Teething AGAIN!!! so he was screaming the whole time.
-Vitals & Blood work are good...
-TIME TO GO HOME...FINALLY!!!
.....................................................................................
HERE ARE SOME PICS-

COLE'S YUMMY FOOD...LOOKS GOOD TO ME! I WISH IT CAME LIKE THAT ALREADY MEASURED AT HOME!

THE HOSPITAL HAD MATS WE PUT DOWN FOR HIM TO WALK/PLAY ON...INSTEAD OF THE YUCKY GROUND!...WALKING WAS THE ONLY THING THAT MADE HIM HAPPY.



DADDY WASN'T THERE ONE OF THE DAYS UNTILL 4PM...WHEN HE GOT THERE COLE WAS SO EXCITED...HE JUST KEPT STARING AT DADDY.







BY THE END OF IT...HE DIDN'T WANT TO BE TOUCH OR POKED ANYMORE!!!

HE FELL FAST ASLEEP IN THE CAR...HE KNEW HE DIDN'T HAVE TO WATCH OUT FOR NEEDLES ANYMORE!
