Welcome to Baltimore...

We made it. I am actually using a computer at the Ronald McDonald House in Baltimore. This place is great. It has a huge playroom which Sophie has already enjoyed tremendously. When you walk into the room we are staying in, it looks like a regular hotel room with 2 beds and a bathroom. Then you walk around the corner and there is a small room with a door with a crib and another bed in it. This place also has a gorgeous kitchen that was just remodeled and different organizations come by everyday to cook dinner. The microwave is so high-tech that Brandon had trouble trying to figure out how to warm up Sophie's bottle. This place is really a home away from home. If we were at a hotel, I am not sure what Sophie would be doing right now (which is sleeping). I am so grateful for this place and the organizations and people that make it possible for places like this to exist. We will be here until Thursday and I will try to post daily to let you know how she is doing.

We will of course be praying for all of you this week. We hope this treatment works, and hopefully works quickly. Keep thinking positively.

Hi Elaine, Brandon, & Sophie!
I haven't checked in for awhile and I can't believe what you've all been through! Sophie is so cute on her pictures--it's so exciting that she is walking! I can just see her sitting on Erin's step and standing up and taking a few steps. We will certainly all be praying for a cure for Sophie and lots of perseverance for you!
Hang in there--she's worth it! Good luck with the diet.
Love & prayers,
P.S. I sure had fun with her at the lake.

I'm glad to hear your trip went well and you have a great place to stay at.

I'll say some extra prayers for Sophie and for continued strength, faith and guidance.

Give Sophie a big hug for me, she is such a little angel.

Love you guys.

We will have all of you in our thoughts and prayers!!! We are cheering all of you on! I am a member of the keto support group you guys joined and stumbled on to your blog from there. This diet does amazing things where medication fails. It's hard, but it's worth it. Good Luck and keep us posted!
