We need a little help in the Lenaburg household. Courtney spent about 5 hours in the Fairfax INOVA ER this afternoon after suffering a 20 minute seizure at school they could not stop. When she arrived at the hospital, she continued seizing "subconsciously" for another 30-40 minutes. This means her body wasn't moving but her brain was going haywire. It has not been this bad since she was three. The VNS has been maximized, so now we are looking to pharmaceuticals to help.
The docs are having a hard time coming up with a drug protocol that will work for her. This is the second ER trip in three weeks. As many of you know, I have started a new job with FCPS and am trying to keep it. However, I am not sure that this is possible with Courtney's current health crisis.
So, please pray for a miracle, both for Courtney and for our finances. I thank you in advance for all of your prayers that you have offered in the past and will offer for our family now. I will let you know what the Neurology docs have to say after our appointment on Wednesday. Prayers for wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
