Jackson Update 12-9-09

December 8, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Just a quick update from our scare today that included a trip to the ER by ambulance.  From what we can tell, Jackson had a seizure today while in class at preschool. Thankfully he goes to preschool at the church and Stephanie and I are just down the hallway.  However, this seizure wasn’t like most of the ones from the past.  This seizure took place without the rhythmic convulsions like seizures of the past. This is  probably what scared us more than anything.  His eyes were open, but he just had a blank stare on his face.  It was like he wanted to respond, but couldn’t respond to us so just stared. Very scary!

The school had already called 911 when I got there.  The paramedic weren’t any real help.  It was almost as if they did’t know what to do, or how to deal with a little kid.  Once we got to the hospital, the waiting game began.  After some Tylenol and Motrin, a long hard nap, and 3 hours in the ER, Jackson returned to his normal self.  Praise Jesus!

We are now home, watching Sesame Street and keeping Tylenol and Motrin in his system to keep another fever from spiking causing another seizure. Please continue to pray for our little guy.  We believe that one day, God is going to use his story in a powerful way.

Thanks to all that prayed, came by, text, or left messages on my Facebook.  We are so thankful for your friendship and feel loved and blessed to have you in our lives!

Jackson will go to the Dr. tomorrow to make sure it is just a cold and not the onset of an infection before we make the trek to Missouri this weekend.

Don’t be hate’n the video may be old but the words are true and so powerful!

    Dan and Stephanie – We remember the horror of Jonathan’s first seizure in Jr. High. No words describe it. Our pediatrician who was fantastic and a Christian recommended immediately that we get him to a pediatric neurologist in Houston who ultimately diagnosed him and joined forces w/pediatrician to direct his care. When we moved to Warrensburg we went to Children’s Mercy for follow up. I said all that to say this – don’t let the fear conquer you, keep giving it to God. He’s got a much better grip on these things than we ever can. Louan
