4 months seizure-free!!!!

Just a quick update on Ms. Gabrielle. Today marks 4 months of being seizure-free! This is just amazing to me. Amazing that on Sept. 23rd she had 12 seizures and Sept. 24th she went without a single seizure and has remained that way for 4 months!
God truly can do anything! He IS a God of miracles.

Gabrielle is pulling up on everything these days. She has followed Benj half way up the stairs and is just at the beginning stages of cruising. Gabby’s OT feels she is doing well enough with her fine motor skills that she is no longer in need of occupational therapy. She is still working with a physical therapist to master walking. A speech therapist will be evaluating her soon to see if she would benefit from intervention in this area. Gabrielle is trying really hard to communicate lately. I taught her some baby signs and she is attempting to use them. She points at everything she sees and tries to tell me about it. Gabby is a very happy girl. She loves to say “daddy” every time she spots Duff. She was clapping away to the music in the van yesterday.

3 months Seizure Free!!

Hey All,

Just wanted to update all of you and let you know we celebrated 3 months seizure-free on Christmas Eve. It has been an amazing 3 months as we have watched Gabrielle begin to blossom. She continues to amaze us every day with her mobility and her ability to get into mischief. I don’t recall rejoicing over any of our other children grabbing ornaments off the Christmas tree but this year I was thrilled to see Gabrielle yånking them off!!

We are so thankful for the way God has worked in our lives this past year. He has taken away our pain and turned our mourning into dancing.

Hope you all have a very blessed New Year!
