God remains faithful
This past weekend, my heart just about stopped as my sister told me on skype that my nephew had gone into a seizure because of his fever he had been running. The color drained from my face and the fear of what I didn't know started flooding my thoughts. & then my heart started breaking as I thought about what my older sister was feeling right about then as her only son was in such a helpless state.
I got the story 10 minutes later from my older sister. She called and said that they had been on their way to the store with all the kids in the car. Meya had also been running a fever and would fall asleep but wake up crying because she would want to be held. Paaj turned around to tell Meya to hang in there because they were almost to the store when she caught site of Kezzy in his car seat. His face was purple and his eyes started to roll into his head. He tried to cry, but it came out as little whimpers as his body went into a seizure. She jumped from her seat and screamed as Kezzy's sisters looked on in fear and my brother-in-law stopped the car. He gave Kezzy cpr until the ambulance came.
No more than 10 minutes later, Kezzy was okay at the hospital and chewing on ice as they took tests to make sure he was okay. Apparently, little kids are susceptible to seizures when running high fevers. He even got on the phone and said to me "I okay, Auntie. I okay."
It's hard not being in MN to give him a hug and kiss him on the cheek to make sure he's really okay.
But in all of this, I am so encouraged to know that when all this happened in the car, Paaj said that Kayla & Anela unbuckled their seat belts and leaned forward as Kezzy lay unconscious and they said "Mommy, let's pray for Kezzy."
Childl-like faith. They never forgot Who is in control.
