The last time we were at the hospital we came home with this golden ticket: a prescription for a Seizure Dog! Interestingly, service dogs are viewed as durable medical equipment and require a doctor to write a prescription. As I watched Dr. LaJoie write this and sign her name, I couldn't help think about how our lives were about to change.
We will be able to look back on the day Evan was handed this prescription as a defining day for him. It marks the beginning of a journey that will undoubtedly be a life changing experience for the whole family.
