Nathan was born in October 2004.
A few hours after he was born he had what appeared to be an epileptic seizure. Nathan came out of hospital after 2 weeks and we waited to see how he would develop. Specialists had no idea what was causing his problems despite doing many tests on his brain, spinal fluid and blood.
Up until 3 months of age Nathan did quite well but it soon became apparent that he wasn't developing as he should have been. Now at age 4 he is unable to walk, talk, swallow, see or do anything for himself, he also still has seizures every day. We have recently started the Ketogenic diet to try to help him.
He is however a handsome, happy and content little boy who brings love and happiness to everyone around him.
We still have no diagnosis for Nathan and we do not know what his future holds but we have a little boy who smiles, is cheeky, loves to be bounced on your knee and loves attention from anyone and everyone that will give it to him !
He once lost the ability to smile, which was awful, recently he has re-gained this skill, for this we are eternally grateful and feel we have been truly blessed in having such a special son.
