i thought it was a nightmare.
but it wasn’t.
it was, unfortunately, real.
on friday night, while L was asleep,
he had a grand mal seizure.
it was terrifying.
we immediately rushed L to the “hostable” (hospital) as K would say it,
where he was thoroughly examined by
you see, with his diagnosis alone, he is more susceptible to seizures.
all the docs could come up with was that
this seizure looks to have been caused by just a cold.
just a cold.
and, we were released from the “hostable” merely five hours after arriving.
that is record breaking for our family.
L is doing well and is nearly back to normal
from this little cold.
and other than hanging out,
L has mastered a new trick (thanks to B):
and as Auntie B has reminded me
God has prepared me for this.
and i know exactly what to do.
instead of letting fear take over,
i cling to Him and His Word.
But he said to me,
“My grace is sufficient for you,
for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly
about my weaknesses,
so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
and when i do,
His perfect peace
covers over me
like nothing i could ever experience without Him.
we are on the other side of this seizure now.
and, the hardest thing about yesterday
was when i was trying to remove the sticky tape
left over from the heart monitors.
and do you know why this was so hard?
well you see, because as i was wiping it off of L,
it was tickling him.
and he couldn’t stop laughing.
i continue to be so comforted by the words in Jesus Calling.
i feel as though He is speaking directly to me.
656. my weakness
657. great doctors
658. a greater God
659. being home as a family
660. sweet little L who continues to strengthen our faith

You and L and the rest of your family are an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your stories. Jesus is using you to reach out to many, including myself. Thank you.
Have you heard Sovereign Grace Music's song "peace"? I was listening to it while I read your post. It all just goes together so well. ANd I love the wisdom that you've been prepared…. trained…. for this. Oh, yes you have. And you are passing that wisdom on to all of us.
