Yes, the one thing I have been so UTTERLY afraid of for the last 7 months. Cole had 7 small "head drop seizures" yesterday. I went to pick him up from the wonderful woman who watches Cole...he was sitting in her arms and I saw one out of the corner of my eye, I quickly looked at him and said "WHAT WAS THAT!?!". Debbie (who watches him) looked at him and that's when he had 6 more...right in a row. I was in complete shock, all I could do was sit there...I kept saying "maybe he's just tired", "maybe he's just tired". Debbie assured me that it was a "S". I didn't want to believe it...she asked me if I was ok and I just sat there staring at him. She walked me over to the couch, sat both of us down and called her husband & his dad to come over and give Cole a priesthood blessing...I asked if I could have one also. I was so glad that Debbie was quick to know what I needed and what Cole needed. This is one of the things that stuck out to me in Cole's blessing: "You have been blessed by the prayers of faith and you are a very special child of God." ...I didn't exactly want to tell anyone about him having "S's" in hopes that it didn't really happen...but, Cole had 4 more this morning. I KNOW how powerful blessings and the prayers of others are...and so, I ask that you pray for him. We are pretty sure this is happening because of his medication change (either the wean of Keppra or the new medication). We are waiting on the neurologist to see what his thoughts are.
If I can ask *one* more thing of you in addition to praying for Cole, will you listen to this talk...if you have a special needs child or know of a special needs child...this is the most AMAZING talk (i cried during the whole thing!) He talks about his grandson that has special needs. This talk couldn't have come at a better time for me, then now...2 days before the ciaos hit. ...and Thank You to the wonderful people who sent me messages saying they were thinking about us during this talk, it meant so much to me. And Thank You to my co-workers for letting me cry all day long!
