We met with the neurology this morning, and I finally know what is going on. I have abnormal brain waves (generalized seizures). They are like extremely short (acute) absence seizures, but I cannot tell they are there. However, I do not have epilepsy, because you have to have two separate seizures in order to officially have it. There is a fifty percent chance I will have another seizure (probably in the next year), and if I have one, I will have epilepsy. Now, I am just in “the waiting,” hoping that I will not have another seizure.
I read this verse last night, and I found it really encouraging:
I love you, Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
This has been really encouraging to me lately…
“[I am] Standing on a road I didn’t plan
Wondering how I got to where I am
I’m trying to hear that still small voice
I’m trying to hear above the noise
Oh I walk through the shadows
And I am so afraid
Please stay, right beside me
With every single step I take
How many times have you heard me cry out
“God, please take this”?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh, I need you
God, I need you now.” -Need You Now (How Many Times) by Plumb (Tiffany Lee)
I have an EEG today. I am a little nervous, and I am hoping the results will be good. Prayers will be appreciated! 🙂
When I was at school yesterday, an unfortunate event occurred. I was taking my Spanish II final, and the next thing I knew, I was on an ambulance. Apparently, I had a grand mal seizure (the paramedic said I may have had two, actually). I spent four hours in the ER, getting tests and such. Thankfully, I was in great health. I didn’t have any brain tumors, nor was I dehydrated.
I am going to have an electroencephalogram (EEG) on Friday and I will know the results a few days later. I am hoping and praying for the best, but it is all in God’s Hands–and I know, even if it does not seem like it, He is working for the best. I will do my best to keep ya’ll updated on what is going on!
God bless & comments appreciated! 🙂
