Philip had a bad night...He started the day off rough..he was not feeling well and stayed in bed until after 2:30 today. He decided to go to youth tonight with one of his friends. After being there only a few minutes he ended up calling and said he needed to be picked up right away he was feeling really bad. I hate those calls..they make me sad and scare me..He said his head felt like it was going to explode and he was in severe pain. This was after his extended release morphine pill and 10 mg perocett .
Sure enough he had a big seizure tonight. He has taken his seizure meds and is laying down.
I pray for a better day for him tomorrow.
We see the surgeon in less then 2 weeks for the consult on the brain surgery cath and also the pain pump. Big decisions and lot's of unknowns....
I do not mean to be a downer..but sometimes like tonight..I just can not help but in the world did we get to all of this and how did things get so complicated.
One thing lead to another and another..and now it seems the worse seems to get worse. Please pray that this central nerve disorder is going to slow down. It just breaks my heart.

Someone just e-mailed me this .... I thought you'd like to read it. I find at this difficult time in my life that prayer really calms me down and makes me more hopeful (whatever God decides to do).

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.

My prayers continue for you and your lovely family.

It's one thing to have to go through crap yourself but to watch you child (for 2 decades) go through all this has to be just awful. Every time you post about Philip I literally have to take a deep breath before I begin reading it. It's just heartbreaking to think of all the pain and struggles he goes through. He, too, is often in my prayers.
