Contentment

Last week I was transported back in time to the yesterdays. While I was checking in for Lilly’s EEG I got chatting to another mom. Her baby was just a month older than Lilly was when we had a lot of issues with seizures.

Talking to her brought back so many raw memories and feelings from a time when I felt so helpless.

The memories of dosage changes, new meds, break through mini seizures that left me in a panic went through my mind but as I talked to her I felt peacefulness inside me that was missing 6 years ago.

It was weird going to the rooms that look the same but where different. If you didn’t pay attention you wouldn’t have noticed the new technology or new decorations in the room.

As we left I had to get directions to the new clinic. I almost ended up in totally the wrong place because the clinic got moved to a whole new floor.

The best part of the visit was the shock on her neurologist face when he saw a grown up Lilly. In his mind Lilly was still a tiny little girl. For the first four years of her life Lilly barley grew. The last time he saw her she was size 2t clothes. Fast forward to today she is now in her age size and functioning at a higher level than last time.

But the big change was at the end when he announced that for the first time in Lilly’s life the EEG showed no epileptic spikes.

 

Contentment

Something her medical team and us had gotten content with would never happen.  After so many EEG’s coming back all over the place with epileptic spikes her doctor thought it wouldn’t change in the near future.

It’s amazing when you get content with something God answers the unthinkable. Even a week later it brings be such joy thinking we had a clear EEG. I totally understand this status can quickly change with Lilly’s brain but for today I will take this blessing and won’t worry about the days to come.

Now I am going to move onto Week 3 of Prayer Sisters.
