About 3 weeks ago we took Gavin in for some medical tests. He had been having these brief periods where he would kind of black out and not be aware of what was going on around him.
At first we thought he was being the typical 12 year old and was selecting not to here us, but I guess that wasnt the case.
When they continued to get more and more frequent I really started to worry about him, so we took him to the Dr.
The neurologist did some tests and told us that he has epilepsy, WOW!
That was all that I could say I was to say the least very suprised, worried, scared, mad!
We never want any harm to come to our children and it just seemed like he had enough dumped on him the last few years without having to deal with this.
We are still in the trial stage with the medication and he has good and bad days.
The medicine makes him sick, but on the days that he feels ok I finally feel like I have my old Gavin back.
He was not very happy about the diagnosis either it took all of his fun stuff away. No Football, video games, computer games!
Those are about all of his favorite things.
So he is adjusting and I am very proud of him. School is a struggle with the seizures and the side effects from the medicine but he is trying.
I know that God has a reason for everything, and I think that this is teaching all of us in this family a few things.
