What a day!

Friday started out just like any other Friday at our house.  With the exception that Grace had woke up with a horrible headache....one she'd had since late Wednesday evening.  The kids did their schooling, and at noon we all sat down to listen to my husbands radio show.  Right before the show was over, it looked as if Grace had fallen asleep in the recliner, and when the kids started fixing lunch, we came over to see if Grace was going to eat.  We tried to rouse her but she wouldn't wake up.  It also looked as if she was crying.  I tried for several minutes and she finally opened her eyes, but she was breathing heavy and was very non-responsive.  I kept asking her if she could hear me but she wouldn't respond.  We couldn't get her to talk or move at all.  All of a sudden we had children crying their eyes out afraid of what was wrong with their dear sister.

At that point, my husband picked her up and we rushed her to the hospital.  After we arrived and they put an IV in her, she calmed down but was still very groggy and she couldn't talk.  They did several tests, including a CT scan, and did blood work, only to find out that everything was normal (which we were very thankful!).  They said she had hyperventilated do to the pain of her headache....we are coming to the conclusion that she has had a migraine.  She still is in need of your prayers....this headache wants to linger.  Whether migraines run in our family...my husband has them continually, my father, sister, and sister-in-law have problems with them as well, I hope that Grace will be spared. 

I am so thankful that God continues protect us and meet our needs.  Thank you so much for your prayers!
