Pray for Bodie

Bodie's surgery was yesterday and by all accounts, seemed to have been a success. We won't know for a bit whether it really did what we were hoping, but it seems to be have been good for him for now at least.

His recovery has been pretty good, working through pain and nausea issues. He seemed to be turning the corner this afternoon, eating more and playing more. I thought we were making progress. Unfortunately, tonight, as he and I were snuggled in bed watching a movie and playing with Legos, he had a seizure.

We do not yet know what caused the seizure (or how we can stop them from happening in the future), but will hopefully know more soon. We did have a CT scan done post seizure, and the preliminary results look good (no brain damage). We are still waiting for neurology to read the report, but the preliminary reads by cardiology are good.

Friends, Bodie really needs your prayer right now. He is currently sleeping off the seizure, and we expect that to last 2-4 hours. Once he is awake, we can do a full neurological assessment to assess any damage.

Please pray:
1. He wakes up with no deficits.
2. We are able to pinpoint the cause of the seizure, and avoid it in the future.
3. Peace for all of us as await answers.

We will update when we know more.


  1. I am Praying with you for Bodie tonight. I know how scary that must have been for you.
    I know God is watching over him and he will recover and be stronger than ever.
    He's such a Brave and handsome guy!

  2. Many thoughts and prayers for Bodie & you all.
