We're in the hospital...

As Lyla would say... bummer dude!

After a great 2 weeks of being home, we are at Children's Hospital. Evie had a short seizure-like episode last Friday night but when we brought her in they didn't see much they could do... last night (Sunday) she had a much longer episode of straining, stiffening, some tremors, and some abnormal breathing, so we had her brought in by ambulance to check her out. They have admitted her to Children's and are going to do an MRI, EEG, have a neurologist check her out, and the geneticist look over her again. First they need to know if she is indeed having seizures, then they can determine if it is part of the skeletal issue that she already has, and then how to treat her.

If you could pray that 1. she doesn't have any more episodes, 2. that the doctors can find the cause of what's happening, and 3. we can get her unhooked from all of these monitors they have stuck all over her little body we would greatly appreciate it.

Love you friends!

Psalm 116:2 2
Because he turned his ear to me,
I will call on him as long as I live.


  1. I hope everything is alright. We will pray for you. Let us know if we can do anything for you!

  2. Oh my! I'm glad to hear that you had a wonderful two weeks, but I am so sad to hear that you are back in the hospital so soon! We are praying for you all and sending big hugs as you get through this!

  3. Ew. Im so sorry! I know how scary the EEGs and MRIs can be; and your little one looks so tiny and helpless and vulnerable. I'll be praying. I wish I would have known you were there. Judah and I were there today for 3 hours, and I would've loved to come pray with you. Hang in there, remembering that it is God who sustains you, carries you through, and loves Evie beyond comprehension...and you:)

  4. Praying hard for Evie and you all! I hope you have received some answers and that Evie is doing well.

  5. Prayers are being sent to the Great Physician for healing and strengthening of baby Evie. Your family has been prayed for ever since Carrie (your family from So Cal) shared with Karen B, who shared with me(....who added you to our prayer list at Bible Study.)

    We rejoice with you in the miracles God has performed in the life of Evie. May the peace,hope and love from our Heavenly Father continue to sustain you.
