Quick Update on Today

We had a long day today. Olivia had another seizure this morning about 5 am. After dropping the littles off at 6am for day care, Olivia and I went to UofC for her tests. She had an EEG at 8:15. After, we had a regular clinic visit. They told us they would consult with the neurology staff today/tomorrow and hopefully contact us later in the day tomorrow with the results.. Her MRI was scheduled for 12, but we didn't get to go back until about 1. They sedated her, and she went in for the test at 1:30. They said it would be about an hour, but finally called me back 1 1/2 hours later. She came out of the sedation well and we headed home (she was so out of it!). Not 20 min into the drive one of her doctors called my cell. Another doctor had done just a preliminary reading of just the EEG and said she needed to start seizure medication tonight. They called it in for us and we picked it up later. They will do a more formal assessment of the EEG tomorrow as well as the MRI and hopefully contact me in the afternoon when they know more.

I am glad she got some meds- I am sad that this is happening but meds will help when they find the right one and the right dose. I am praying!!! It could be something really simple like a little bleed- that can be fixed quickly- don't freak out!!! Pray!!!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
