Clobazam Increase

I just heard from the neurologist.  We are to continue with the planned decrease in Phenobarbital and increase to 12.5 mg Clobazam today, and then in one week will increase Clobazam again to 15 mg.  I thought 12.5 was the max dose, so I'm glad we have not yet reached the ceiling for this med.  We are also getting the ball rolling for the ketogenic diet, just in case we need it.  That way we won't have to wait for all the scheduling, insurance approval, etc.

Clobazam is supposed to be very effective at controlling both infantile spasms and focal seizures, so let's flood the gates of Heaven with prayers for this to work!  These increased seizures over the past few days have really come out of nowhere.  The last med change was 3 weeks ago, I can't think of anything that would have set them off.  I'm thinking it's an attack from the enemy.  Maybe Clobazam is our miracle med!  Levi has reached so many people for God.  He is a living testament that the Lord heals, that He is faithful, that we can count on Him.  Of course the devil wouldn't like that!  James 4:7 says "Submit yourselves, then, to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."  Matthew 18:20 says "For where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am with them." Please join me in praying for little Levi!

Father God, we lift Levi up to you this day.  We know that your word is true, and that it does not return to you void.  You said that by your stripes, we are healed.  We claim that for Levi right now, Lord, in the name of Jesus!  Protect Levi from the forces of darkness.  We recognize the devil's work here, Lord, and we expose it to your light.  Your word says resist the devil and he will flee.  We bind the enemy right now and forever, Jesus, in your precious name!    Thank you for healing Levi! Thank you for bringing a complete end to these horrible seizures!  Thank you for throwing his health issues away once and for all so he can progress and learn and grow.  We love you, Lord, and praise your holy name!  Amen!
