January 4th, 2019 marked Drake’s 3 year anniversary on the ketogenic diet. We didn’t celebrate. Life goes on with more challenges ahead.
I still vividly remember the tiny hospital room we occupied for 4 days, 3 years ago. The confusion and worry I felt, the feeling of being lucky and unlucky at the same time. The anger over the gross hospital food we had to make Drake eat. The triumph we felt we when he got into ketosis, and then the anxiety over how we would continue it at home. We left the hospital with Drake in ketosis; weak and shaken, with band-aids on every finger from the blood tests.
