A Florida man’s daughter is hoping to be able to hike the trails at her grandmother’s home when she turns five in the next year.
The daughter, Kaila, has been diagnosed with epilepsy and has had her first seizure last month, but she still wants to explore the trails of Lake Worth.
“She’s really, really excited about the outdoors,” her grandmother, Susan Tres, told the Orlando Sentinel.
“Her dad loves hiking and he’s been doing it for 50 years, so he wants to be a part of it.”
It’s just been a long road.
“A few weeks after the seizures, the Tres family received a call from the Florida Department of Health asking them to be on standby to pick up the girl.
The agency sent Kaila to a pediatrician for evaluation and she was diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy.”
I had the same seizures, and the same doctors, and they said it was very rare and she needed to be taken off seizure medication,” Susan Tresh told the newspaper.
The Treses said their daughter’s symptoms are improving and she is in the best shape of her life.”
There’s no reason she should not be able go hiking,” she said.”
If she has to go on vacation, then I can go with her.
“The Tresh family is expecting the child to be in her fifth year of life when she is 5 years old.
