Thursday afternoon..

Here is the latest update: yesterday we were told that she did not have a stroke. Now after all of the neurologists got together and looked at her MRI, they have determined that she did have a metabolic stroke. Whatever mitochondrial disorder she has is causing a reaction in her brain. They think that the continued seizures may be residual from the stroke. The plan is to increase her seizure meds and send us home tonight. She will need out-patient therapy because she cannot walk and can hardly move her right hand. We have a lot of hard days ahead of us.

We are sure sorry to hear this kind of news for you and Olivia and the family. It sure has been a long road for you. We still pray for God to give you all strength to endure what is given to you. We also pray the Olivia will heal by the grace of God.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
All our love,
