Another MRI and More Monitoring

Gabrielle is doing pretty well. She had a second MRI completed yesterday to check for placement of the grids and depth probes. She slept a lot of the day yesterday between the sedation and the frequent seizures she was experiencing. We collected a huge amount of seizure data and the epilepsy team will be reviewing it all this AM. Gabrielle is much more awake today. She is playing peek-a-boo, pointing, and gives us an occasional smile. She is drinking well now and is just beginning to eat solid food. She had a fever the last two nights but we’re praying it is just related to being intubated for so many hours on Wednesday and that as she is awake more today it will resolve.


  1. Court and Karen Weathers says:

    What a privilege to pray for little Gabrielle! Thank you for the updates and know we are praising God for the recent victories and praying for complete healing for her. Also for Christ’s full perfect peace for both of you up in N.Y. and deep rest when you can get it. May your little ones back home know they are loved and cared for. Praying for all of you to be reunited again very soon.

    Phil 4:7, And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

    Love, Court, Karen, Emily, Zack, Kathryn, Brock and Caleb Weathers

    Hey, we miss you guys a lot! We continue to pray for Gabrielle, strength, peace and wisdom. “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

    I’ll continue to keep you all in my prayers. Your faith through this ordeal continues to inspire me. I agree with the comment above: Kelly and Duff, I hope you’re able to get a little rest from time to time. :)

    Love and miss you both,


  6. Kelly & Duff,

    I know we’ve totally lost touch over the years but Jen sent me the blog and I feel compelled to respond. Gabrielle is such a beautiful baby! Thanks to Kelly :-) ….just kidding Duff! I just wanted you to know that Gabrielle, you guys and your whole family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Hang in there and keep the faith…as I know you do and will. When you get back to NC if you need anything…and I’m serious, please let me know.
