Diagnosed w/Epilepsy

On August 28th Chad collapsed while at home.  While I was on the phone with 911, he had 2 seizures back to back. He was transported by ambulance to the ER and after several hours, admitted to the hospital.

After conducting numerous tests, labs and other procedures including MRI's, CAT Scans, EKG and an EEG, Doctors could not determine what had caused his seizures.  We only knew that the Neurologist believed they had stemmed from his right temporal lobe and had left him with stroke like symptoms on the left side of his body as well as some minimal brain damage.

On September 18th, while at home with our 4 boys, Chad had a seizure and collapsed, hitting his head. He was unresponsive and stopped breathing. While on the phone with 911 he had a tonic seizure, then while at the ER he had a third seizure, which Dr's chose to at that point admit him to the PCU.

After talking with his Neurologist today, he has been diagnosed with Epilepsy. He is no longer able to drive or work until the seizures are able to be controlled. We have received countless phone calls, text messages and emails asking how everyone can help.

With him not able to work and my work not enough to cover the bills, not to mention upcoming Dr's appointments, medication, and physical therapy.  We are asking for help to get through this difficult time.

Even through our darkest hours, God's eternal light will illuminate our path.

Our family thanks everyone for their love and support.
