Our Monday was to start like any other week. We had several appointments, church events, tennis games,and to be capped of at the end with our daughter's drama performance on Friday and Saturday. Here it is Wednesday, and I am sitting in a hospital room with Rae. Monday morning Rae started having a seizure that truly scared us, and we raced off to our local ER. The ER was great and started working on her immediately to get the seizing to stop. They started some testing to get some early results and decide if we were to be transported to Children's. None of the early testing showed anything, but her CT showed something, so we were definitely being sent to Columbus. A ride in the mobile ICU is not a thing any parent wants to experience. Sitting alone praying for your child is about all you can do. We are very thankful for our friend Rochelle who came and picked up our girls. Their family has been a great help these last couple of days.
We have no record of our daughter having seizures before or knowing she had 2 previous strokes. We can only speculate that these happened before she
entered the orphanage - we just don't know. There is no one to be angry
at, but all we can to is move forward and give her the best medical care we can. God knew all that was going to happen, and we can just trust His
plan. While we are scared and very concerned, we are so blessed by our
friends and family literally all over the world are praying for us. We
are truly thankful for all your messages and emails. She is one blessed
There are still many questions to be asked and tests to be done to find
out the answers. We are thankful for the doctors that are working
diligently to take care of her and to help her to find out what is
causing this. We are thankful that no infection has shown up in the
cultures so far. We pray that we are moving closer to find out what
caused this and to even see if it related to her blood disorder. What
ever it is, it is all of God's plan and He knows it all. We must trust
His wisdom. I will chose to be thankful.
THURSDAY UPDATE - We were able to go home late Wednesday. She is doing well on her new medicine. We were told she could possible be mean while taking it, but we think it has given her the giggles which we will definitely take over the other. We are loving these belly laughs! Pray there are no more seizures, and we can get more answers.
