Well faithful travellers, you may be wondering where I have been? I have been to BLAND land and it was so boring there I did not feel like sending you a postcard.
Caspian and I took a small excursion to Spice city, accidental exposure to MSG mountain and the return journey was a disaster!!! Combine delicious, spicy exciting morsels with snot and you get misery in the thousandth degrees.
I chucked a tantrum on Wednesday, pronounced that it was all over. No more Ketogenic meals were going to be made by my hands, No, No, No, No! That beloved man of my mine took over and cranked up the fat and pumped out some meals and Caspian has improved. His behavior and speech picked up, his interaction with friends was spot on for 4. Obviously the ketogenic meals still work and are needed. This tantrum of mine was really about the necessity and ongoing validity of this diet for Caspian. Is it still serving a purpose? Yes. I shall trudge on .
My fellow parents, how often have you struggled with this diet yourselves? It is a relentless, somewhat cruel deprivation and I confess; I hate it. And yet, I frequently weep with Joy at the gradual steady healing my little man is undergoing. It is like being split in half, one side KNOWS with certainty the need for the restricted foods, the other side of me wails and fights the misery I feel I am putting him through, and the continuous work, work, work of meal preparations. Bit of a complainer aren’t I?
I’d love to know those of you parents travelling this road are going….
