And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

God Has Heard You!

Wow! After shedding many tears the other day once I read my precious hubby's post...

First, I was impressed with his ability to hack into the blog! Second, I was completely humbled. What an amazing man! I am so unworthy of such a Rockstar! He encourages me to the feet of our Father everyday; sometimes with words, typically with the overflow of his heart!

The first 28 days of July, I had 55 seizures. In the six days at the end of July through early August, I had 58. So, it was overwhelming. My brain (clearly) wasn't working very well. So many of the things that had come back to me (i.e., memory, energy, ability to think clearly) with the decrease I had been having in the seizures, disappeared quite rapidly. I just couldn't think straight or complete a sentence for many days. As many of you know, the docs found that each seizure is the equivalent of me running a marathon (in regard to strain on my heart, brain, body, etc.)-of course, I don't get a marathon runners body out of it! ; )

So, having two seizures a day is tough, but having 10 or more each day is exhausting. I had many days there that it was hard to get up and move at all. My sweet hubby came home each day and prepared dinner and took care of anything else that needed taking care of...

I had a few more rough days after B's post. However, I received such precious encouragement from so many of you that you were praying, begging, and pleading with the Lord for healing. Your responses helped me move through each day, knowing I wasn't alone, but that you were crying out on my behalf.

Then, yesterday, Praise Jesus, we saw changes!! I didn't have any seizures at all!!! I had quite a few auras (which the docs tell me are still seizures), but I can keep moving through the day with those, I just feel nauseated most of the day! So, I've never counted auras as seizures!

Early this morning, I had one seizure. However, thank you, Jesus, I've gone the rest of the day without any seizures (still having some auras). We want NONE to be the trend!! Keep crying out to the Lord, please!

Again, I am so humbled by all of you that have reached out to me this week to let me know you are praying, those of you that have sent me cards of encouragement, and many others that don't even read the blog that reached out to me because they felt the Lord was laying me on their heart! WOW!!

Finally, please say a special prayer of blessing on my amazing husband that sacrifices daily to serve and love me, no matter the cost.


  1. Yes -- B is a rawk star!! Way to take care of your woman as always bro!

    So excited to hear the encouraging news -- continuing to pray for you and for God to heal you of all of this now.

  2. Praise God! I will continue to lift you both up!

  3. Sad that I missed breakfast with the boys the other day! We need to get together sometime soon! Hope you're feeling better.
