I just received a call from the MRI office. Micah's MRI is scheduled for 3:40 pm tomorrow, Thursday. Micah's head will be put into a brace to make sure that he will not move his head. The concern is that he will be claustrophobic. Also, his asthma is acting up right now. When he is having trouble with his asthma he has a hard time laying on his back because it makes breathing difficult and causes him to cough. Please pray that he will be able to do exactly what he needs to for the tests to be successful. Thank you!

I would like to ask friends and family to pray for Micah. On Friday night around 10:00, he had a seizure. Since this was the first time we've ever seen this, it was very scary. He was unconscious for a short time during the convulsing and then he still very disoriented until the first responders hooked him up to oxygen. It was amazing how quickly the oxygen cleared his brain. Micah was taken by ambulance and then assessed by doctors at the hospital. The possibility of Benign Rolandic Epilepsy is being investigated. Micah will be having an MRI and an EEG. His EEG will be on December 4th at 10 am. His MRI is yet to be scheduled. Please pray that Micah will be able to be still. Being very still is very important for both tests, but it is paramount for the MRI. If he cannot be still for the MRI, the test will have to be rescheduled at the children's hospital and he will have to be put under anesthetics. We would much prefer that the procedure be done without him being medicated. If Micah's asthma is acting up he will not be able to lay still on his back because this makes him cough. Please pray that he will not get another cold before these tests. Thank you to those who will pray. Thanks be to God who loves us and has everything in control.
