Can I get an AMEN!!!

Ok Ladies and Gentlemen, hold on to your hats cause we have some great, fantastic, wonderful, and A-MA-ZING news!!!
Emily started sabril on Monday night at 9pm, she had 3 infantile spasms episodes after the medicine was started (no big seizures though)
Yesterday she had a total of 3 all day with the longest lasting 3 minutes and that was at 7pm.

I may be a little premature in rejoicing, but what the heck I am gonna rejoice!!!
Since 7pm yesterday she has not had ONE SEIZURE, SPASMS, TWITCH, OR JERK!!!!

I do understand that this may be what they call a "honeymoon stage" where it works for a while then her body gets used to it and it stops working. I am not gonna focus on that right now though.
We have something positive to look at now!!

On Monday night before we gave her the sabril I sent out a mass text to my prayer warriors and had everyone pray with us at the same time.
Joe and I held this little syringe of liquid and we prayed and asked God to let this work.

Even if its only one day she is seizure free I will still rejoice and Praise the Lord!!
This is a victory and I don't know about you but most people celebrate victories!!
Heck who needs a gold medal in the Olympics just give me one seizure free day with my baby.



    Gave me goosebumps.

    Happen to be listening to this as I read your post. Very fitting.

  2. You are allowed to give praise for any MINUTE of good news... so sister, I'm PRAISING right along with you... that's AWESOME!!!!!

    I told Joe we all need to get in a habit of praying at 9 & 9 for Emily (is that still when she gets her meds?)... praying this just keeps getting better!!!!

    (See Hallie stopped by here too - that is one funny lady!)

  3. Happy dancing right along with you guys... take each little victory and praise like crazy!!!!!

    I am SOOO thrilled! It makes me cry. My precious grandbaby and my darling children are doing better. I KNOW that our Lord and Savior, the Great Physician will heal our precious Emily.
    I have faith in our Lord. I want so badly for my children, Joe and Erica to have all of the joys of being parents without having all of these hurts and worries.
    Praise Our Lord!
