it gets worse

My mom woke me up this morning to tell me the ambulance was on their way. Ben, my brother, had several grand mal seizures this morning, and he was not coming out of it and continuing to seize. They brought him to the ER, and now he is heavily sedated in the ICU.

We are waiting on an EEG. Ben is a complicated case due to the 7 other meds he is on, so every single medical decision has to be made with great caution.

So now both my brothers, who live 14 hours apart from each other, are in the ICU for grand mal seizures. What in the world is going on???!!!

This has to end somewhere, right?!

Thanks for the prayers and encouragement. We are trusting the Lord to work out the details.

This must be so hard to deal with. I cannot imagine. I am praying so hard tonight that the doctors can figure out something that will help both of them. And for strength for your family.

Praying for your family girl! I can't imagine what you are going through, but remember God alone is in control.
