Jude smiles

I finally got a picture of Jude smiling, and as promised I am here to share it with you. For those of you that are new to my blog, this is a huge accomplishment. It is a sign of emotion from Jude, and that warms our hearts. When Jude was about 6 weeks old he had a tiny grin he would flash me. Atlhough. when the seizures started, and we were given the devastating news, our fear was his smile would diminish. I remember asking the doctor, "Will the medication or the seizures wipe out his cognitive abilities........will he lose his smile? Please tell me no because it's all we have left!!" The doctor told us it was a possibility, and within a few days Jude's smile was gone. With the removal of the pheno, and topamax and the introduction of the depakote Jude is finally becoming himself again. He will never be normal, but he is Jude and so precious and inspiring!
So we are so overjoyed to be able to share this picture with you. Thank you for sharing.
