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

Thanks and Update

Many, many thanks to all of you for praying for M yesterday.  These last few days have truly been difficult as it seems the seizures just won't stop.  We did have home health come in and do IV medication yesterday morning as we will sometimes see good results administering M's anti-seizure medicine this way.  While not a sure thing in stopping the seizures, we can usually get some reprieve.

M was able to get some rest throughout the day and some much needed reprieve for most of the day after getting the IV.  PRAISE THE LORD! While the day did progress better than it started, the seizures unfortunately returned by bedtime with M having a few around going to bed and during the night.

Pleas be in continued prayer and, in addition, pray for our Neuro, Dr. S.  We have an appointment later this week to go over some additional thoughts and possible future treatment.  We too are very much prayerful about our upcoming appointment.

Thoughts:  Since we were not able to get out to church yesterday due to the chaos that ensued, we had our own little church last night.  Our time had us in a familiar passage, James 1:2-8.

Consider it all joy when you face trials of of many kinds....

A very good point that I don't think we really considered is that JOY does not necessarily mean happiness.  Unfortunately, circumstances that are not always in our favor do happen.  BUT God can make good from our trials.  Our focus should not be on the trial or tribulations, but rather we are to look through the circumstance.

Your thoughts?  For more insight we would encourage you to also listen in to the message we listened to.  Look through the trial and trust : Message by Pastor Brian Fisher, Grace Bible Church, College Station, TX 09/02/2012

  1. Please email me as I have 2 doctors that could help give you some answers. Caleb's seizures are gone. We have learned a lot and it goes back to a mast cell/histamine issue. They call his MCAD (mast cell activation disorder). Seizures and POTS/dysautonomia is a symptom of this disease. Histamine blockers and a mast cell stabilizer plus staying away from all trigger foods keeps seizures away.
