Today I got to meet with a fellow Doose Mommy. Her family will be beginning the ketogenic diet with her sweet boy on Monday. We connected through a facebook support group for parents of Doose Kids.
I didn’t think we would ever meet another doose family in person. Turns out we go to the same church and live only minutes away from each other!
I was so excited to be able to share some of our wisdom and lessons we have learned. I have been praying that somehow our story and journey can be a blessing to someone else.
Chuck and I immediately knew we wanted to reach out to this family. We know that we don’t have all the answers but we are further down the road. We also remember clearly how alone we felt in the starting the diet. We wanted to offer the personal touch that had not been available to us.
It was a fun afternoon for Gabriel and I! Gabriel played with the 2 kids in the family and the mom and I just talked. This is the first time I have been able to sit face to face and talk with another Mommy battling the doose “beast”. Of course their story is different than ours in detail but emotions and life changes involved are very similar.
