Ian is in the hospital, prayers please!

Ian is in the hospital after having suffered a seizure yesterday night. We are not certain of the cause although we thought at first it was b/c of a bump he got from taking a tumble. We took him to the pediatrician yesterday to check everything out. He was fine until about 10pm. He vomitted & then started w/ labored breathing. I took him downstairs & he started seizing in my arms. We called 911 & he seized for 50 minutes. He was intubated to protect his airway. It didn't stay in for too long before they felt comfortable taking it out.

To make a long story short, they have already done scan & there is no bleeding on the brain or swelling. They will be doing an EEG & MRI to try to figure out what is going on. PLEASE PRAY that our little boy is ok. We need God's strength.

Hi Astrid, It's Terry from TC. I just wanted to say that I am praying for Ian! I wanted to tell you that my nephew started seizures at this age. They did many many tests but never could figure it all out. It was so scary (I cry when I think of you holding him while he seized) He did have to take medication for a while but is a very happy, smart, ten year old now. You will be in my thoughts...

(((Astrid))) I am so sorry!!! Joel had seizures starting at that age and lasted for about 1 1/2 months. They never found out what was wrong with him, and he has not had one since 11/22. I hope you find a cause, because I still worry about it.

(((MANY prayers for sweet Ian)))
