Knocked the wind out of me

On Thursday, Jaree had another seizure.
She's had many in her little short life of 10 years, but it's something that you CAN NEVER GET USED TOO.

I feel so helpless.
It's nothing I can do to PHYSICALLY make her better! As a mom, THAT'S A DEVASTATING FEELING. I cannot begin to describle it.

I hurt for her!
I wished I could take on all that pain, but I can't.

After being in the Er for 24 hours, I found out my baby has SWINE FLU!

That was a DOUBLE WHAMMY. It big BLOW TO ME, because I try SO HARD to do ALL THAT I CAN TO KEEP HER WELL.

She has an atypical form of epilepsy, in which most her seizures are FEBRILE, however she is too OLD TO BE HAVING FEBRILE SEIZURES. They stop at the age of 5 or 6.

She was UNCONSCIOUS for 24 hours, but not COMATOSE. That is a good thing. The brain takes a big beating when you seize, so SLEEP is how the brain recovers.

She cannot see the neurologist until next week, because of the flu.

She will have to have YET ANOTHER mri, eeg, and ekg!
I am just at a loss.

But this GIRL IS SO STRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She is SUCH A FIGHTER, THAT she just amazes me.

She has been thru so much in her short life that it makes me ANGRY....
BUT WHO AM I TO QUESTION GOD??????

He doesn't make any mistakes?
I guess this is a storm that I have to weather.

Please continue to pray for my baby....
I love her Beyond any words!!!!!
But, any one reading this who is a mother, knows what I mean.

I will try to keep you updated as best I can!
She is being SPOILED BEYOND WORDS, FROM EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!

i HAVE MADE FIVE BILLION PROMISES TO HER, that I WILL KEEP, ONCE SHE GETS BETTER....

build a bear
a new game for nintendo ds
a nintendo dsi
a trip to claires and kohls for jewelry
land of the lost
and the zoo!

and those are just my promises......
Her dad has a list longer than the CONSTITUTION, but you know whaT? She deserves every bit of it.

I got her report card and my baby got all A's and one B! And she won yet another award for her reading. The mile high reading award. She reads at such a high level! I am so proud!!!!!

I have to go and take care of my baby, but I just wanted to let my blog readers know what was going on....

Until next time!

Dana, you and your family are in my prayers. Your daughter is covered so don't you worry. HE will take care of everything; you guys stay strong for her. And you know I work for CDC so if I know of anything or can do anything, let me know.

I'm trying to get me another Twitter account so you can get in touch better with me. If not, you know how to reach me.
