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

Plea for Prayers

I come to you this morning, begging for prayers!! It's been a rough week and today isn't any better.

I have had 44 seizures in the last seven days, not including today. Today, I've already had six, all before 10am. The first nine days of the month, I only had 13 seizures! This was a great average for me and was showing marked improvement.

Then, something went crazy. I "typically" average around 2.5/day, yet right now, I am averaging over 6/day. After doing EKGs while also doing the EEGs, they have equated each of my seizures to the equivalent of me running a marathon (if only I had the cute little marathon runner body). What they have found, is that each seizure places the strain on my heart, equivalent to that of running a marathon. So, I have already run SIX marathons this morning and I'm exhausted.

We have no idea what is causing this and are praying for wisdom in the decisions that we make. We are supposed to be leaving in a few days to go meet our new sister-in-law and niece and nephew. Traveling is tough when I'm having so many seizures (and because I have to take every single meal with me).

So, will you all please pray, believing HE will answer?

1. Healing from the more seizures!
2. Safe & hassle-free travels-I have to take every single bite of food that I will eat while away and obviously TSA isn't a huge fan.
3. Wisdom with meds, meals, etc. Do we need to change something?

Thank you all so very much!


  1. You are always on my mind and in my prayers. I pray that answers are on their way, and for rest and enjoyment on your trip. God is good!

  2. Hello M. My name is Melissa,I am from Queretaro, Mexico. I got here because I was in B's third grade class and as I was searching for my classmates of '89 in College Station I stumbled upon his facebook and then upon this blog. I have spent a whole night reading entry after entry and I am really moved and amazed by your strength and faith. You both are so inspiring and I want to let you know I too will pray for you. Take good care of each other! Best wishes and stay strong!
