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

M Update and Back Home

Precious Friends and Loved One,

What a week!  Exactly one week ago today M was being discharged from the hospital...Despite the fact the M was still in the same state that she was in upon arriving, there were no answers nor solutions given as to what could have been happening to M.  As many know, Tuesday of last week, M awoke and was incredibly dizzy and nauseated and could barely function and or stand on her own.  In fact, M's entire left side was seemingly paralyzed making it incredibly difficult to function.  With the help of a sweet friend at Critter's pre-school, we were able to get M into the car, but from there she went downhill.  By Wednesday we were in the hospital and after and EEG and a CT scan, there were still not any answers.  After our discharge, we came home and mustered through the weekend.  Several faithful friends and prayer warriors were by our side helping to provide care and assistance in the most loving fashion possible.  We're incredibly thankful for our friends that intervened and made M comfortable at home making it possible to have comfort and peace.  Their care and love actually allowed Daddy and Critter to get some special time at an Airshow in South Dallas!  What a treat!  Critter loved it and got to be up close to some amazing airplanes!

After our weekend and seeming that M was getting better, we were met with a hurdle on Monday as she was feeling much like she was on Tuesday/Wednesday of last week (which put us in the hospital).  All we could do was wait, watch, and try to assemble our Mayo Clinic team and our Primary Care doctor to triage.  Not figuring much out, we eventually did more blood work on Tuesday and miraculously M began feeling much better by Tuesday evening.  Since then, we have been closely monitoring and staying by her side making sure she doesn't have a repeat of the week's events if possible.

That said, today, she is doing much better (though having 5 seizures in about 15 hours) and is not having any dizziness or nausea to report.  Her left side is no longer paralyzed and she is able to be upright, ride in car, and most importantly, hold Critter.

While we still don't have answers as to what happened, we still seek the Lord and are trusting Him for his continued provision and strength.  Thank you again to all who have been praying and have been able to help us in our time of need!  I am thankful that I can post this praise and that you can rejoice with us!  Praise the Lord!
