This morning was a beautiful sunrise. Sometimes we get frustrated living here because of neighbors and stuff....but, this morning reminded me how blessed we are and what a beautiful view we have.

Thank You! Thank You ! Thank You!

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has prayed for and supported us. Chad said the other day that one good thing that came out of this was realizing how many people really care about you. It has been mind blowing what people are willing to sacrifice to help us out. Thank you and God bless!


We are doing good. It seems like the medicine is going to help Chad. The seizures are not nearly as often as they were. We are just adjusting to the changes that this all brings with it.
The boys are as wild as ever. I think being cooped up is getting to them. I took them to Chik-fil-a today and let them run around with some other kids. I think it helped them get out some of that engery! Other than that nothing is new. Thanks to everyone for the prayers and support!

Home at Last

Chad was discharged from the hospital today. From the EEG results they determined for sure that he has epilepsy. We are just glad that the medicine is going to help keep it under control.
We had a crazy week. My grandparents were up from Florida and I only got to spend a little bit of time with them. But it was really good to see them. It feels so good to be home!

We have officially moved into UT Hospital!

Just a quick update while I'm at home letting the boys get a nap in thier own beds....Chad is okay...he's still in the hospital and they're going to keep him another night. They've stopped the seizure meds since he responded well to them...they need him to actually have the seizures while they are doing the EEG...whatever that is?? He's holding up, but definitly ready to come home. We are happy that he responded well to the meds! That is great news. We really appreciate all of your prayers and support!

Prayer Request

Last night Chad was taken by ambulance to the E.R. He had a very bad siezure at about 9 pm. He had been having some "episodes" and had a dr. appt. for tomorrow. We didn't know until last night that those "episodes" were also siezures. He is doing okay. He has had a few more small siezures today, but they put him on a medication and he will go next week for some more tests and to see a neurologist. They did diagnose him with epilepsy. It's all so scary. Knowing, that it can happen at any time. But, I'm so thankful that things worked out the way they did last night. I had just dropped Ethan off at my mom's house and got home twenty minutes before it all happened. Please pray for healing and for peace. It's not only scary, but, it's going to take a lot of adjusting. I don't want to leave him alone right now and he can't drive at all. People have been so generous. Justin has offered to take him to work every morning so I don't have to get the boys up. That is going to be a huge help. So, anyways, I'm just asking for your prayers. I know that God can heal Chad. Thanks in advance for all your prayers!
