David’s blog, Epilepsy Dad, shares the family’s journey with epilepsy which started in 2014. We were visiting Philadelphia ahead of a move to the city when their son had his first focal seizure. The first seizure is always the scariest, largely because it comes out of the blue and you never know what to expect or what to do when it happens.
Since that first seizure, the family has spent months in the hospital, tried countless epilepsy medications, started the ketogenic diet, explored CBD, and they are still trying to figure out what is causing the seizures and get them under control.
