It's my 200th post!!! I can't believe it. I was going to do a give away, but so much has been going on I didn't get around to planning it. Maybe I will give away something for the holidays.
As I mentioned yesterday, November is Epilepsy Awareness Month, so I will be sharing lots of information on epilepsy. I wanted to start today by inviting you to see how much you know. I found this quiz online today and thought it was cool. I only got 20 of 25 right myself, and I try to stay on top of these things. Click on this quiz link and see how you do.
I will be updating you guys on our Chicago trip this week for Spencer's testing for brain surgery. Thank you all for your prayers and emails of encouragement. They really mean a lot to me. Please continue to pray for God to be in all the details this week. He has already shown off in a big way. More to come on that later.
I wanted to start a series I will do this month providing you with information on famous people with epilepsy.
The first person I'm highlighting is Vincent Van Gogh. This excerpt is taken from a calendar that UCB produced in 2006/2007.
"Vincent Van Gogh, a painter of profound sensitivity and remarkable productivity, experienced complex partial seizures throughout his life. Driven by genius, he relied daily on his brother Theo as a source of comfort and support. Theo's constant correspondence helped Vincent cope with his epilepsy and helped him to become a world-class artist."

Will update you guys from Chicago tomorrow! Have a blessed day!
