Chance for Chelsea to Live the Life she Deserves

Quick Update on Chelsea

on May 8, 2012

Chelsea is being admitted to the Mater Children’s Hospital this Monday for a week to commence the Ketogenic Diet – the time has come!  We are anxious, scared and excited all in one.  We realise it will be a hard, annoying, repetitive, stressful.  I’m most anxious about the daily blood and urine tests.  BUT we know we have to give Chelsea this opportunity to possibly have seizure free time ….  It’s not just a Diet it’s a life change for Chelsea for the next 2years!

Chelsea has blossomed with her chatty behaviour – babble over the last week.  It is fantastic to hear her babble and gives us hope that one day she may talk or at least communicate in her own special.

So far this month we have visited the usual – Chiropractor, Physiotherapist, Neurologist, Paediatrician, GP, Baby Bridges, Special Kindy Playgroup, and Family Day Care – life is so hectic for a lil 20month old ! All Chelsea’s specialists are very impressed with her progress and we are happy to see her improving all the time.

Thought we would tell the world too that we are pregnant with our second child.  Chelsea is going to be a big sister! We had tests done to check that this baby’s brain had developed and doesn’t have Aicardi Syndrome. So we are pleased to announce we are having a little boydue Ekka Show Holiday 15th August .  Chelsea is going to learn oohhh sooooo much from her little brother, we are very excited.
