Moments like these want me to cry my eyes out, scoop up my babies and squeeze them so hard it hurts. Moments like these make me thank the Lord for what I have.
Moments like these make me want to kick the ever living heck out of the freakin' beast!
last night as I nonchalantly, or even more so, annoyingly told Jake to go to bed and assured him I'd check on him in a minute, knowing one minute actually meant 10 or maybe even 20.
Matt and Addison were at soccer, Coop was already fast asleep.
I was "busy" doing something mundane, probably washing bottles and getting ready for the same revolving door , that is our day.
When I finally got the chance, I turned on the hall light, so I could peer into Jake and Coop's room,without waking either of them, lay with Jake a minute, get back to my "business", all without disturbing their slumber.
As I peer in, Jake is sitting in his bed.
His head is bowed.
His hands pointed at his chin.
I asked "What are you doing Buddy?"
He responded, "just asking God to take my seizures away."
My heart instantly broke into a million pieces. Our little man was begging to make his life normal. Jake has never really said he knows when he has seizures, but last night proved to me....he knows....he knows how his life has been changed.
As I sit down to type this entry and maybe even brag about how kind the beast has been to us lately by not showing his ugly face for a while, I hear it.
I hear that God awful gasp and then the bed rocking and convulsing over the monitor.
This however, is not the "usual" 5-10 second seizure.
This one is a good 30 second doozy.
This one makes me scatter and find a magnet and even the Diastat, that we have not had to use in so very long.
This is one, in which his postitical is a good 1-2 minutes.
This is one I have not seen in a long time.
Damn you beast! Just when I think you may be tired of picking on my kid, as he is fighting and doing his damnedest to kick your ass, you come and show your ugly self once again.
"It is at moments like these that I know my what my purpose is in life. I am here to love you, to hold you in my arms, to protect you. I am here to learn from you and to receive your love in return.I am here because there is no other place to be."
