Blasted Bubble Tea

We have done our best to cut refined sugar out of Hewitt's diet for the last 2 1/2 weeks. We hadn't seen any definite improvement initially. But we are beginning to wonder if it's making a difference. The last 4 or 5 days he starts out having a rough morning and then usually around mid to late afternoon things have slowed down and we hardly see anything for the rest of the afternoon and evening. But, yesterday was the first day of Hayden's vacation and we went out to eat to celebrate. After dinner we went to Bubble Tea...one of the boys' favorites. (fruit smoothies with fruity jelloish things at the bottom) We let Hewitt have one, and he only drank half. I can't even imagine how much sugar is in those things. This morning he had a short tonic clonic - mixed with something else because he was crying through the whole thing which has never happened before and it only lasted a minute. He hadn't had a tonic clonic for well over month. So, maybe there's something to the whole sugar intake thing. We're still letting him have natural sugars. (fruit, agave) I guess only time will tell.
