My 10 year old nephew was brought to the hospital yesterday morning having seizures. He was conscious but could not speak. No one knows what happened. He was in the back when they found him already having the seizure. He has no known medical problems and had not been sick. He is in ICU right now, and they still have no clue what is going on. A CAT scan showed his brain was fine, no brain damage. And so far his spinal tap cultures are coming back normal. They were thinking he might have meningitis or encephalitis. As you can imagine, we are all terrified. He is such a sweet young boy, always happy and full of energy. Please pray that they can find out what is going on and that it will be something that can be cured. It is heartbreaking to watch my SIL, she keeps saying "you know, sometimes you don't get to keep your babies." : ( It is like she is trying to prepare herself for the worst. I havn't gotten an update yet this morning, I am praying that they will have some good news when I call.
You can see Pierce in this picture, he is in the middle row, in back of Samuel and next to Isabella.
