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

Thursday, June 29, 2017


Many of you followed out most recent trip to celebrate B’s grandparents 70th Wedding Anniversary.  It was a wonderful time and quite an amazing celebration!  We had a great time and it truly was a blessing the Princess had a great time as well!  Princess’ health continues to improve and so that is why I am saddened to write that my Princess turn a rather unfortunate and random turn and we find ourselves in the ICU.  At this time, we’re not too sure what brought on the sudden change.

In one instant we were laughing and enjoying our newfound chapter in life as She is continuing to experience freedom from her seizures, and then to start having a cluster of seizures beginning Tuesday night to being in bed all day Wednesday.  Today, Thursday, near 4 AM Princess found herself stuck in a nearly 3-hour long seizure. While God has blessed us with every little detail (EMS crew from the house, to the wonderful staff and physicians at the hospital), this is truly one of our scariest moments in our 11 year journey.  I have said multiple times today, “Just when you thought you had seen it all….” 

So here is our current status:

  • Princess is currently in the ICU and is on a ventilator. 
  • The ventilator was done with Princess being sedated to stop her from seizing and moving about.
  • This enabled a CT Scan to be accomplished (Results are normal)
  • This also allowed the doctors to perform and EEG.  While we are not seeing the continuous seizure pattern that brought us here, we were able to capture a couple seizures so far.
  • Princess is presently in a “coma-like” state and is there primarily due to the medicines.  After they monitor her for 24 to 48 hours, they will take her off the ventilator, see if she can breathe on her own and then will slowly bring her off the sedation drugs. 


  • That Princess would respond well to all that is going on
  • No brain damage due to the prolonged seizure
  • Full recovery
  • God to be Glorified- His healing, whether to choose to heal Princess here or take her “home.”
  • For Critter to be continually protected. 
  • Guidance for Me, Princess’ mom, the physcians
