About Me

Sadie has Lennox- Gastaut syndrome (LGS) a rare and debilitating form of childhood-onset epilepsy. The syndrome is characterized by frequent seizures and multiple seizure types, a resistance to medications, mental retardation, and regression. Sadie has four types of seizures. We go often to Childrens Hospital for testing and such. When she was 4 she had a VNS implant. The VNS device is sometimes referred to as a "pacemaker for the brain." It is placed under the skin on the chest wall and a wire runs from it to the vagus nerve in the neck. The vagus nerve is part of the autonomic nervous system, which controls functions of the body that are not under voluntary control, such as the heart rate. The vagus nerve passes through the neck as it travels between the chest and abdomen and the lower part of the brain. To date it has helped tremendously but its not a cure . She still has daily seizures . We hope one day that will change and she will become seizure free.

I have 3 sibblings and a dog named Izzy he is my best friend. I have out grown my stroller and hope to get a new one so I can take my dog for walks to the beach. I feel happy at the beach!
