BLOGS = MIRACLES
When this journey of Cole's started, we quickly became depressed. I still remember the day our lives changed. For a week straight, we sat on the couch & cried as Cole would nap for hours and hours a day. I remember we were on our way home from the hospital after Cole's 1st EEG (at 10 months old). I had some papers the neurologist sent home with us explaining what kind of seizures he was having. I was bawling as I tried to sound out these words that I've never heard before. I felt alone & scared. I finally realized that I couldn't just cry forever...I needed to do something. As I research everything under the sun, trying to find anyone who had the same seizure type as Cole. I stumbled on Cristina's blog. FINALLY! Someone who knew something...and that someone else exists with the same seizure type! I contacted her...soon after, Ashley & Nikki found us! We all became instant friends. It was finally nice to talk to someone who understood the language and lifestyle that comes with babies & toddlers with epilepsy. All of them in some way taught me how to be a better advocate for Cole...and I will be forever grateful to them! If I hadn't found them, I KNOW we wouldn't have found out about the Cleveland Clinic. I would STILL be sitting here, NOT knowing what was wrong with my sweet baby. I know that I was guided by the Lord to find these AMAZING mom's. He knew I would need them for strength, comfort & their knowledge and example. I love you guys and will FOREVER grateful to you!!!! I am rooting for their kids every step of the way!
