Update on Spencer

Sorry I haven't posted more updates since arriving. Once we got here, I got very sick, the sickest I've been in several years. Just my luck. I have spent a good amount of time at the hotel lying in bed while Greg has been at the hospital. My doctor called in some meds for me, so today is the first day I have been somewhat able to function since Tuesday.

Here's the update on Spencer. He has only had one small seizure since getting here. They captured it on EEG but couldn't inject the neurolyte. It seems weird but we are praying he will have a seizure today so we can finish the testing. We just don't want it to be a status seizure. 

We did find out from the doctor that Spencer has three focal points that his seizures originate from. This means he is probably not a candidate for surgery, but it hasn't been ruled out entirely yet.  There is still a chance that surgery might help him. We'll know more if we can get this last test done. We will probably change his drug therapy and possibly try some new dosages or medications.

Please continue to keep us in your prayers. I will post more info once I know more. Thanks for all of your support and encouragement.  See you tomorrow at TSMS.

Amy,

I just stopped by and learned of all that your family is going through. Bless your hearts, you have alot on your plate right now. I am praying that the Lord would heal you quickly so that you can be beside your husband at the hospital. Praying too for your precious little boy. One of our friends from church has gone through so much of what you are experiencing. I watched their family, awestruck by the strength they needed and received from the Lord through their months in the hospital. I am praying the same for you and your sweet family.

I'm lifting you up Amy...
