My Story

Welcome to our Jude's Journey website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about our Juderbug.

Jude was diagnosed with a simple eye disorder called nystagmus at 6 months old. At 15 months he started having myoclonic seizures and was diagnosed with epilepsy.

He got ear tubes at 18 months and glasses at 2 years and 2 months which has really helped with his balance and vision. Although his vision is still not what it should be due to a pale optic nerve.

He is undergoing further testing. We are blessed with a team of doctors, early education educators and speech therapists that are helping Jude reach his full potential.

Jude loves Matchbox cars, music and anything his big sister, Lucy, is doing.
