Praise and Perspective

Abby went all day (waking hours) Friday and Saturday without a seizure!  This is good, very good.  Friday night she had four seizures, but one and two and then one... no clusters... this is good.  Then last night, I was nervous as she started doing bed aerobics as soon as we went to bed (body, leg and arm jerks... constantly)... BUT she didn't have a seizure until 6:30 a.m. and it was just ONE!  I just layed almost on top of her and cried out to God to show himself and give her peace... to just let her body rest... and I fell asleep that way... repeating, "Please give her peace... please give her peace... please give her peace."  Then... I awoke at 6:30 a.m.!  What a blessing for both of us, for all of us!

It's funny how one seizure during one part of our life can cause us such pain and in another place in time leave us feeling hopeful... perspective is a funny thing.  Your prayers are such a blessing.  We covet and treasure them and ask you to continue to lift her up through out this week to come.  I am hugging you... hope you can feel it.
