Seizure Tonight

Well, I was hoping to post tonight with the title "No News is Good News" but instead I'm announcing a seizure tonight to end an EIGHT week stretch! While I'm sad that the seizure-free run ended, getting to go EIGHT weeks without one was such a blessing! All summer we were in such a weekly routine. It's been great to watch her having fun and not having it interrupted by a seizure.

The seizure tonight was a tonic clonic (grand mal). Always hard to watch but thankfully it lasted less than two minutes and she didn't need ANY meds to stop it! It stopped on its own! We were just getting ready to sit down as a family and watch Home Alone with some popcorn. She slept a little bit and then was groggily watching the movie for awhile. Soon she was eating popcorn and giggling at all the crazy stunts Kevin pulled on those bad guys! Such a blessing to see her bounce back so quickly!! A friend just messaged me tonight telling me Luella was on her mind. I have no doubt that God answered her prayers and the prayers of all of us! We thank you all for continuing to keep Luella in your prayers. Dravet syndrome is a battle that we aren't going to stop fighting and we are so blessed that so many of you are prayer warriors for Luella!

This seizure won't discourage us...

                            May the God of hope fill you with all
                                                                joy and peace in believing,
                                                 so that by the power of the Holy Spirit
                          you may abound in hope.

                                                                                                        ~ Romans 15:13
