Stacie Lewis’ experience raising hell…
... erm, raising a little girl with severe brain damage. The blog began in 2009 when May was 4 1/2 months old.
Currently, May enjoys bouncing and the dulcet tones of dub step.

Last week, May was admitted to the hospital for two nights to trial a new seizure medication, pyridoxal-phosphate (or, PP, as I will now call it) to replace pyridoxine. They are both Vitamin B6, just in different forms. Some babies react badly to PP. They “forget” to breath. They pass out. They don’t wake up. […]

There is so much a baby can not tell her parents or doctors. Can she hear? Taste? Can she recognize her mother’s smell or her father’s beard chaffing her face? In the hospital, we were certain May could see. She seemed to scan the room with interest and focus on objects. In later months, closer […]
May and the Small Steps School for Parents are inspiring people young and old to get off their behinds!

Two lovely air hostesses approached me on the plane to see if I needed anything. May ceased bouncing […]
