My nephew needs prayers

Yesterday, my nephew "fainted" in the lunch line. His mother went and picked him up. She took him to the doctor. We were worried he may have not fainted, but had a seizure. Why? Well, my brother, his daddy, had epilepsy when he was 4, out grew it by the time he was 10.. we had been watching my nephew for signs of it.. but until yesterday... we thought he was past the point of us needing to worry, since he is seven and a half. Now he waits an appointment with a child neurologist... and it might be as much as a 4 week wait to even get in to see the neurologist. So.. there isn't much we can do.. it would just be comforting for us all knowing people are thinking and praying for him to be ok, esp until we really know what happened.

Thanks all.

epilepsy is not as bad as it me on this I can contact the local epilepsy fondation and they can help you if you need it. Most children do outgrow it later in life and being seven and just finding out he has it is in the normal time frame for childhood epilespy (oh many degrees of sezuires as well)....I know a great deal about this..but do not want to blog it..if you need to know more or understand what he will be going through feel free to contact me..cheers..and best of luck

Praying that your nephew's problem is maybe just diet related or something minor.

Take care and here's a hug, pass it along to your sister and your nephew!
