An Update on Ethan

Since yesterday, my daughter and Ethan are back at home, tired but okay. Ethan is scheduled for a brain ultrasound on Monday and they're waiting for an appointment at BC Children's Hospital for an EEG. The doctors have said that the "seizures" are not true seizures, more along the lines of tremors.

One pediatrician has taken Ethan's case and another (who has been a pediatrician in Abbotsford for a lot of years) has noted a link between these kinds of tremors and breast feeding (I wonder what THAT says!), intimating that once Ethan is no longer breast fed, the tremors may well disappear. We shall keep our fingers crossed.

All in all, I think he'll be fine and I thank you so much for your kind comments, concern and prayers. So does Kristen. If there are any developments, I will definitely let you know.

You are all so appreciated; you have no idea how much your support is felt... thank you from the bottom of my heart. 


  1. Phew! Glad to hear that everything seems to OK.

  2. What a scary thing to go through. They must be happy to be back home again. Fingers are crossed here too.

  3. I'm glad that things will be fixed for your poor grandson soon. I will try and keep in touch to see how things go, and of course keep him in my thoughts and sending good wishes always.

    I love the orange sweater. Gorgeous. I have not heard the last podcast yet, but I intend to do so very soon......LOL

    Take care and keep well. :)
