There are a lot of people we would like to thank. All of our family and friends that supported us during our difficult times. We thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts. Because without you it would have been unbearable.

We would also like to recognize several individuals who were directly involved in various aspects of Logan's story. They are as follows in order:

Heavenly Father. Because without his support and guidance none of this could be possible. We Thank You!

Dr Stanley Waddell. For being the first person to recognize Logan's seizures and state that we needed to get him in front of a Pediatric Neurolgist. We Thank you!

Phoenix Childrens Hospital
. For having an available appointment that very day and diagnosing Logan so quickly. We Thank You!

Dr Jong Rho. It is without question that Dr Jong Rho is the main reason why Logan is where he is today.

We also thank Dr Rho for his calm, kind and straightforward bedside manner. his knowledge of Infantile Spasms, his putting up with my neurotic line of questioning, and his continued care and concern for Logan. We Thank You!

Linda, Becky, Deepali, and Angie. For being such great therapists and working with our little Logan. For making the difference with his development. We Thank You!

And most importantly, Logan. For hanging in there during all the seizures, poking, prodding, testing, sicknesses, medications, hospital stays, and for supporting his parents through their difficult times. We Thank You!!!!
