Kelly rushed her to the ER and waited and waited. She finally consulted with neurology and they confirmed it was seizures as she had suspected. As of right now, there appears to be no damage, but doctors say it can take up to 72 hours after an episode for the damage to be seen. Therefore, Livi will have a followup cat scan and EEG next week.
Also, the malformation in her artery appears to have gotten bigger since her last CT scan. Doctors are saying it could be the cause of her seizure. At this point, they are at a loss. She is really too small to treat with seizure medications, so doctors are weighing the risks.
Please be in prayer for this little girl and her sweet family.As you can imagine the stress on Kelly and Jeff is enormous. Hannah and Samantha were also both home to witness these seizures and are very worried about their sister. As you can imagine, it was a very scary time. Please pray for peace for the girls, and also that when this happens Livi won't be scared, that she will have some understanding that she is ok. Doctors have said that these seizures will most likely continue although there is no way of predicting, when, where or how many.
Please also be in prayer for the seizure dog. We have found a place in Houston that will train a dog in a matter of weeks. (most waiting lists are at least a year) This will be a little costly, so we plan on doing fundraising in the near future...more to come on this. Please also be on the lookout for a full bred, papered dog. It must be at least a year old and of golden retriever, labordor, or german sheperd breed. If you know anyone that would be willing to donate such an animal, please let us know. If we get a dog donated, that will reduce the costs as well. Thank you so much and please, most importantly, PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!!
