5 years ago today I lost my best friend and the most important man in my life. As the years have past it has gotten easier but today I can remember that phone call like it was yesterday. I hope you’re a peace now daddy, I hope your watching us, and I hope I have made you proud! I would do anything to feel your embrace again or even just to hear you curse me out ;( Just know you are dearly missed today and everyday. David and I love and miss you so very much!!!

While checking David's vitals he started seizing! He seized for almost an hour ;( He seized so bad he bit his younger & lip & blew all the blood vessels in his eyes. He has a 105.8 fever which they are desperately trying to get down and he is not moving the left side of his body. Please say a prayer for us mommy is falling to pieces! We are getting a CT now then we are headed to ICU...I will keep everyone posted.


His seizure has subside & David is now resting peacefully :). Now that it is over mommy can go melt down in a corner somewhere!

It is torture watching my son suffer. I wish I could take his place…but I can’t I am stuck watching helplessly by his side. He is heavily sedated, he still can not breathe on his own and when he is moved he becomes very agitated and moans. The only thing that seems to calmed him is me gently rubbing his forehead. The doctors still can not tell me what if any damage the hour long seizure and the 105.8 fever might have had on him so, for now we pray and wait for him to wake up and see how he responds. My brother is taking over David duty while I am off to work. I already missed most of last week and don’t have enough time accumulated to miss again so I am saving my sick days in case things get worse. (Which I hope and pray that they don’t). Wish me luck I am on 2 hours of sleep, an emotional wreck, and I can’t seem to stop crying =( JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL!!!!


Thanks for all the prayers, love, & support! it really does help keep us strong in moments like this! it looks like it might have possibly been pneumonia that triggered the fever, which triggered the seizure, which caused his fever to go even higher. We are still waiting on test results & for David to open his eyes & respond :(

I'm scared, growing weary, & feeling very helpless right now. I just want to see my Daydays smile! The harder this gets the more I miss my dad ;( but then my big brother calls me & comforts me with his faith & words of wisdom! I feel peace right now & I know this storm to will pass...I just pray it passes soon!

Today's Update: doctors cannot explain why David's lung are getting worse but they are. They have had to sedate him because he is fighting the machines. He is in a Bi-pap but they will be ventilating him in the next hour. He is slowly getting food from an NG tube in his nose and they are trying to get a PIC line started. Once he settled they will be doing a Spinal Tap. Still answers no answers; everything is still a mystery at this time so I'm leaving it all in God's hands!


I am so tired and so scared right now and the only strength I can rely on is God's! I just asked the doctor for a prognosis and he told me that all we can do is wait things out. I'm not a patient person! I hate waiting so I ask well can you just tell me he is going to be ok his response was "I can't tell you that people can die from pneumonia but many people do recover, we just don't know". Not the answer I was looking for :(

There have been doctors & specialist in & out of our room all day. They have given David Plasma, put him on a feeding tube, all kinds of meds, and a ventilator & yet he is not getting better? I have been trying to figure out what's going on but I feel like the doctors are just as confused as I am & keep going in circles. They just started paging the docs & respiratory to our room STAT so I asked the nurse what was going on. Again I got a fluffy answer, so I looked at him in his eye's and said "look I have been doing this for 15 years, this little boy is my world & I need the truth about his current condition" after hesitating for a moment as if he were looking for gentle words to say what he was about to say he then told me... your son is in Critical Condition... he is getting worse every hour and we are just trying to figure out what else to do for him. My heart is sooo broken right now! the pain & fear is unbearable! Please God don't take him from me, I NEED HIM...THIS WORLD NEEDS HIM!

  2. David and Family,

    You're in my prayers and thoughts. Thinking positive that God will carry you through this. Never give up and always have faith. "Where there is life there is always HOPE". May God and Jesus bless you all. Amen.
