Gabriel has had his first 2 meals. He did a great job eating all of the food both times. The first time we tried mixing some medicine into the cream and he figured it out quickly and refused to drink it. The second meal we put 1 drop of stevia and tiny pinch of sugar free chocolate pudding in it and he loved it! Drank it down super fast.
They are easing him into the diet over 3 days. Today he has been eating at a 1:1 ratio. Meaning for every unit of fat he is having 1 unit of protein and 1 unit of carb. Tomorrow will be 2:1 2 fat to 1 protein and 1 carb then next day will be 3:1.
This was his first meal. Mayonaise (2 take out packages); Chicken breast (about 1 1/2 ounces); about 3 ounces of heavy cream; and TONS of berries! Blueberries (1 cup) and strawberries (1 1/4 cup)
Second meal: 1/2 slice of American cheese, same about of ham. 3/4 a banana, 3 ounces of heavy cream and About an ounce of canola oil. Yes the canola oil came in it’s own container. Like a side dish! I dredged the ham in the oil, then poured a little in the cream, then told him it was dip for his banana. He willingly dipped every bite of banana in the oil.

I’m fascinated that part of the diet is cream, because of a story my mom tells about the first time remembers meeting my dad. She had a friend who had epilepsy, and one thing this friend had to do was drink cream. My dad was a farm boy, and that’s where the friend’s family went to get the cream. It’s just interesting to me that cream was recommended for seizures back in the 1940s. Praying, sweet friend.
Becky that is amazing. The Ketogentic diet was the only way to control seizures before anti-consultants. There is a really amazing story about 1 nurse who kept it going even after pharmaceuticals was the answers for many with epilepsy. Had she not kept doing the treatment it would have been lost to history and kids like our little man and other who do not respond to meds would be in trouble. Really amazing stuff. Thank you for praying.

way to go, G!!!! praying for you guys daily!!! love you!
Here’s hoping he keeps eating it!
Sweet, sweet picture! Thinking of you all everyday. G is blessed with great parents!
You are continually in my thoughts and prayers — my mother asks about you if I haven’t mentioned Gabriel for a few days to her. That Mark passage Chuck mentioned is powerful — praying with you and doing a different fast for different purposes but it only keeps you that much more in my heart and mind.
Wow, what a great job he is doing!!
