Answers Please!

After all we did regarding Liam's seizures over vacation while in Florida, he still isn't "status quo".

I had thought, hoped, prayed, that increasing his dosage of medication was the "answer."

He had grown, and his meds needed to reflect that.

I was wrong.

Tuesday morning he had another.

While we were out at the local summer morning movie, and prior to it starting.

God was in control.

Sitting in front of us was a good friend from church and her kids.
And in front of her was another woman from church with her kids.
So my friend was able to come out and help me call 911 and be calm,
while the one in the very front watched all of the kids.

The rescue crew did come, as his seizures almost always last at least 5 minutes
and I'm supposed to call whenever they are 5 minutes long.
But, he recovered and I took him home to sleep away the morning,
as seizures EXHAUST him.

My friend at the theater kept Olivia and Braeden with her so they didn't miss the movie,
and she brought them home after,
and was able to see Liam walking around and smiling.

He is getting blood work done this morning and they are talking
of scheduling an EEG and/or MRI, possibly an overnight EEG.
I'm glad and hope that we can get some answers.

My only concern, irritation is that we JUST did an overnight EEG.
And we did that while in FL when I had support to watch the other two,
since I have to be there all night with him.
I'd like to know why that info wasn't/hasn't been sent to his docs here
like it was supposed to.
I don't want to redo something already done.
The MRI is something I could see doing as that HASN'T been done.

Please pray for us.
Pray for the doctors to find answers.

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:

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
