I’m snowed in for another day in Ohio. I would be going stir crazy if it wasn’t for the week I’ve had. Today I am thankful for more time at home.
On Tuesday I awoke to my 11 month old having a seizure.
SCARIEST FIVE MINUTES OF MY LIFE!
The moments that followed her seizure were even scarier than the event itself. She laid unresponsive on the floor and police officers, paramedics, and firemen paraded into my home. Nothing can prepare you for moments like this.
God was with us that day. She spent most of the day resting in the hospital and slowly coming back around. She was diagnosed with febrile seizures which were caused by the onset of a fever. We didn’t even know she was sick! The thing with these seizures is that oftentimes the episode is the first indication that something is wrong.
So, yes, I am counting my blessings on snow day #6. I’m happy to be home with my babies and to have my baby girl back to herself.
For my Five Minute Friday post I am writing a poem of thankfulness for God’s peace through all that I experienced this week. To join the FMF community or to check out their posts be sure to check out the site. This week the prompt is Where.
In the middle of the battle you were there
Wrapping me in your arms of care.
Time stood still and I was scared,
But You were everywhere.
You brought peace and healing
In Moments when my heart was reeling.
Hopelessness was all I was feeling.
Thank you, Lord, for intervening.
