Starting the Ketogenic Diet

My daughter, Ngaire (pronounced Nyrie), has very bad epilepsy. For a good part of the last year she's had over 100 seizures a day. It's been tough to say the least to watch my beautiful little girl suffer so badly. Amazingly she's battled through it and thus far is developmentally normal.

We're now 2 days into the Ketogenic Diet at Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore. Ngaire was starved for the first 24 hours of the diet and for the next 24 hours (today) only given a third of her
calculated daily calories. Needless to say, she's pretty wiped out. On the plus side, she only had 2 seizures today. Both of them light. She had over 40 yesterday which is a more normal count for her. I am in no way declaring victory at this point as it could be an anomoly, but I am praying it's not and she continues to get better. Only time will tell.
