The Storms are Raging...

Sara and I thought we had crossed the final hurdle when we brought Chloe home on Tuesday night. We were wrong. Last night, Sara started acting very confused and then started twitching. As I realized that something was wrong with her brain, I called 911. As the EMS were on the way, she started convulsing and ended up in a full blown seizure. Sara and I were taken to the nearest Emergency Room via ambulance and left Chloe with some of our good friends.

Sara continued to "seize" last night and they gave her lots of drugs to alleviate the head pain and relax the tremors. After a CT Scan and an MRI, the results were inconclusive. The doctors didn't think that it was a tumor and started leaning towards a stroke. We spent the night in the ER and ended up getting transferred to Wilford Hall this morning. The move could not have happened sooner.

The doctors are doing a full "work up" on her and at this point, they don't think she had a stroke and agree that it is not a tumor. There are still numerous other conditions to rule out before the docs can pinpoint an exact diagnosis or cause. We should know more tomorrow.

Our family came in from Houston and Austin and are taking good care of us.

At this point, Sara is in a semi-comatose state. Please pray for a COMPLETE RECOVERY and for Sara to come back home ASAP.

The blog will be updated as soon as we know more.

Brady,

I can't put into words the feelings I have and want you to know that the girls and I have prayed MANY times in the last 24 hours, for you, Sara, Chloe, the doctors, and everyone else there to help. I can't imagine how you are feeling right now but I can say that I find comfort in YOUR faith and want to remind you to keep looking to God for strength, healing, peace, and wisdom. Hugs and Love to all of you!

Tears of agony and tears of joy. Sara's birthday, her death, Chloe Grace lying in front of her mom's picuture waving as if to say, "Its OK." Just as Sara is trying to tell us it's OK, it will all be OK. And yet trying to comprehend it all brings tears of agony and tears of joy.
