Johnny is improving, much to his mother's delight; she shares her joy in her journal here.

Dear Journal~

Finally, finally some good news about Johnny: he is coming out of his "stupor"; he is becoming more aware of his surroundings. Bill just called me a bit ago (he's at the hospital with Johnny), and he says that there doesn't appear to be any lasting brain damage due to his recent seizure event. Johnny has been responding to the doctor's tests/commands, and he is awake.

This has been a major miracle; it's been a huge answer to all of our prayers!

I am lying in bed (of course, I'm on bedrest; I should be in bed!), and right now my heart feels lighter than it has since all of this started early Saturday morning, when Johnny had his seizure. I feel as though a huge boulder of weight has been taken off my shoulders, and right now I feel that Johnny just may be getting better!

How I wish I could go to the hospital and see our son: I want to hold him in my arms, kiss his tears (and pain) away, yank out every tube, every monitor wire, and take him home, where he belongs! Johnny has been through way too much in his life; he doesn't need anything else to go wrong!

Bill was home yesterday afternoon; about six or so he went to the hospital; he's been there ever since. I am sure he is bone-tired; he wants nothing more than to come home, change clothes, eat a good, hot meal, and then go to bed, so he can take a nice, long, leisurely nap. He sounded more upbeat this last time; it does my heart proud to hear my husband sounding so optimistic about our son's chances.

For the past few days I have done nothing but cry or keep everyone informed about Johnny. Lately it's been "Johnny this, Johnny that", and I am sure the other kids are feeling neglected because my energies have been focused solely on Johnny's health. I don't blame them for feeling jealous, but they understand that their brother has been very sick, and there was a chance that he could have died; so this is why my attention has been diverted from them.

I am going to try to finagle my folks into getting me something to eat; ever since hearing the good news about Johnny, I'm suddenly hungry--very hungry. I also have to call Kendra, Audrey, and others to let them know the latest information about Johnny. I will write in  here again soon; take care and God bless!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend, Louie May. :)

Somebody up there is listening, sometime feeble prayers wouldn't do and one needs to pray harder.
Very happy for the news.
