No More Depakote

When we took Alex to Children's last month we found out that he had no seizure activity in his brain. Oh how we had prayed for that day. Since then we've been slowly weaning him off of his Depakote. He only has two days left to take it. We have been noticing some interesting side effects...such as:
  1. He's now playing with his brother, not just sitting by him playing.
  2. He seems to able to pay attention better.
  3. He's talking more, actually communicating with entire sentences.
  4. He will sit down and do a puzzle.
  5. He will sit and color a page.
Yes, he still has a long ways to go to catch up with his peers, but this huge difference in behavior and character in three weeks has us completely gobsmacked!!

Thank you LORD, and thank you Children's Hospital for helping us get down this long road!

I don't know your son's whole story, but I am happy to hear things are looking up for him. I will keep him in my prayers as well as your family.
Blessings, Jill
