Father's Day

Friday morning I took Bailey to the doctor for what I hoped would be assurance that what we thought were seizures were something else, something simple and easy. Sadly that wasn't the case, and my fears were confirmed with a rush to the hospital for an emergency ct scan. The rest of the morning was a blur till I found myself in an ambulance for the first time with my 5 month old little girl having seizures in her carseat that was strapped to the stretcher. When we arrived at UMC it was raining, hard enough that I had to cover my head, but the sun was still shining all around us. I feel like that's where we are now, it's raining but the sun is still shining through. Bailey's seizures can last anywhere from 1 minute to 3 minutes. She had one earlier that lasted nine, it was the worst one yet. She ended up having 9 yesterday and as of 6:30 pm today she's had six. Hopefully she won't have anymore today, but it is doubtful. Tomorrow is our D-Day. She has all of the major tests tomorrow. She'll have her kidneys and heart scanned to see if she has tumors there too. They'll have to put her to sleep when they do the MRI. We're all still basically in shock. We're doing pretty good but we do have our moments when we break down. We're trying to stay in the moment and not think about the future too much. Today is Father's Day, but it's taken on a whole new meaning right now. Father...the only one who can heal Bailey and give us strength. Please continue to pray for our sweet little Bailey. Tomorrow will be a hard day for all of us. Love, Becca
