Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Footprints in the Sand
This has been a very difficult week. Some of you have kept up with me on Facebook, and I appreciate all of your prayers and emails. Several people have asked me for an update on what happened, so here goes.
On Monday, Spencer had a neurologist appointment. I noticed his behavior was off when I picked him up from school. In the doctor's office waiting room, I called the nurse out because I felt he was having mini seizures. He had done this off and on all day last Saturday too. When we were examined by the doctor, he felt Spencer was in subclinical status and wanted us to go to the hospital to receive some meds by IV to try to stop the seizures. We agreed. When Spencer got the meds, he began to throw up and seize even more. They loaded even more meds and decided to admit us.
On Tuesday morning, he had an EEG. It showed seizure activity still, so they wanted to keep us and run a 24 hour video EEG. Also, Spencer was still very drugged from all the meds. All day Tuesday, Spencer had hallucinations and seized off and on. On Wednesday, the doctors told us we could go home but that he was still having seizure activity.
We came home on two new medications in addition to the ones we are already on. Spencer was unable to even walk unassisted until today. We are pretty sure he is still having lots of little seizures. We are hoping and praying that the new meds will kick in and work and that we can get the seizures under control. And we want him to get back to himself. He is still very drugged from all the medication. Please continue to be in prayer for him and for us. We are trying to get back to normal.
One of the ways we have tried to get back to normal was by watching American Idol. We recorded it while we were in the hospital and watched it with Spencer when we got home. He loves to watch the beginning auditions and thinks everyone is so funny.
I was watching the show with him and a girl sang this song. I had never heard it, but I went to look it up and loved it. It's been very appropriate for me this week.
The spelling on this video is not great, but the lyrics are. I've always loved this poem too.
I'm just continuing to remind myself that I am not alone. He is always with me and will carry me through.
Matthew 28:20 And surely I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
I hope you have a blessed week.
PS. There seems to be problem with Mr. Linky . I have received several emails saying it is not showing up. It is showing up on my site for me though. I think the server is down at Mr. Linky. Please keep checking back to try to link up for this week! Hopefully it will show up soon.
Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.
PSS. I just looked at the blog at Mr. Linky and they are moving servers which is why they are down. It doesn't say when they will be back up. In the meantime, you can leave your url in your comment and hopefully people can find you that way.
