Our vivacious little 6 year old granddaughter, Meggan, has had several weeks of vomiting during her sleep as well as occasions of blurred vision, headaches, and dizziness. A series of tests were done, all of which were normal....until the EEG results came in today. The diagnosis is seizures.....epilepsy. At 6 years old her life will take a sharp turn, and I cannot help but think the journey will be difficult. I am fiercely protective of all 7 of our little ones, and I would do anything to make sure their lives go smoothly. But we don't live in a perfect world, do we?
I want to say "How will this change her, Lord? How will this be for our daughter and son in law?" A friend of mine "expects miracles" at times like this. And she believes they will happen with all of her being...and she receives them. I have many books on proven miracles, and there was a time I also believed in them completely. But that changed many years ago. In a perfect world.....
Meggan will not be given the diagnosis at this point. An appt with a ped neurologist is forthcoming. It so happens there is a little girl in her school who has seizures frequently during the week....during this little girl's seizures she falls to the ground and shakes. Meggan is terrified of what she sees with this little girl. To tell her she has the same disease....wel, it just can't be done at this point.
If you have an extra prayer, could you offer it for Meggan and our daughter and son in law....and their two other children? Even a thought upwards to heaven would help.
