Update 2-25-09

I just received this from Elizabeth.


Jacob recovered well from his VNS implant. The surgeon said he would see us back in 7 years (when the battery runs out). We are now in the process of having the device "turned up" about every two weeks by the neurologist. It is pretty amazing, we go in for about 10 minutes and with a device that looks like an iphone, the doctor punches in some numbers and that is it.
If it is possible, Jacob has gotten even happier since the VNS was implanted. He is always happy and smiling and is such a joy to be around. So far we have not seen any change in his seizure activity but we were warned that we may not see much change for 3-6 months.
Please keep Jacob in your prayers over the next few months as the doctor works with the "dosage".
Thanks to Everyone!
Elizabeth
