After a long night of very little sleep, our little Bug is now sleeping peacefully. They are giving him IV fluids and treating his pneumonia with antibiotics, but thankfully he is not needing any extra oxygen. Please pray that he continues to breathe well on his own. Ryan met with the pediatric neurologist this morning and she is fairly certain that Sy's seizure last night was a febrile seizure, and that type of a seizure typically do not cause any long term damage to the brain. However once a child has one of these types of seizures, the risk of having another one is quite high, so we'll be sent home with a medicine similar to Valium in case of a reacurrence. So for now, Ivy and Daddy are napping at home and Bug and I are hanging out at the Hospital reading books and waiting to see if the blood cultures show any more infection. If everything looks good, we may be able to go home tomorrow. A huge thanks to everyone who is praying. I wish I could give you all a big hug.


  1. oh i have been praying for you guys.
    love you so much xoxo

  2. I just got goose bumps reading your newest update. Yeh for feeling a litte better. Will be thinking of your little bug today!

  3. Oh Brianna, know that you four are in my heart and prayers! May He continue to faithfully supply you with the strength and grace that you need for each moment.

    Love you - Jen

  4. I've been praying for peace for you guys - I know how scary those febrile seizures can be. Jakob had one at 9 months while we were living in Ukraine. It was terrible. He has only had one repeat seizure, when he was 2 1/2, which was a little bit easier to handle.
    Anyway, praying for you guys and that Sylas will get better real quick!

  5. Good thoughts from Chicago coming your way...

  7. My heart is with you! I completely understand what you are going through; my son is 8 days younger than Sylas and has had 3 febrile seizures. We have Diastat on hand and luckily, have not had to use it yet, and I hope you don't either. I will keep you in my's hard, but you will get through.

  8. Praise God that Sylas is breathing on his own. We pray that he will continue to grow strong and soon be home. We pray for continued strength and peace for Mom and Dad and we lift the family to you Lord Jesus.

    In Christ,


Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I love hearing from you.

P.S. I'm sorry for the word verification step, but oh, my. I'm getting lots of spam.
