Memphis Bound tonight!

Here's a quick update on my little man ...Well, he has started having the spasms again. They have been gradually getting worse over the past couple of days so we have gone back up on the medicine that we should have already stopped!! (little frustrating) We are back up to the starting dose and everyday again. Our great Dr. Parker sent in a referral to Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center in Memphis, TN yesterday morning and we got a call this morning saying that they just happen to have a cancellation for tomorrow and asked if we could come on up... oh, by the way, the next appointment was not till late July, so this was a big deal. Oh yeah, and it just so happens that the Doctor on call all week just happens to be world renowned in his field of Pediatric Epilepsy and he come highly recommended from or Dr. here. And Chris' mom has offered her van for us to take up there to make the ride and loading and unloading much easier and Chris' cousin Katherine has offered us a place to stay tonight when we get there... (Coincidence ??? I think not) It seems like God has his hand in this one big time. It is obvious that that is where we need to be this week so we are packing now! We have to be there at 5:45 IN THE MORNING!!! for the start of many test.. MRI and EEG tomorrow morning. We will be staying in the room with him all week (4-7 days). The rooms are equipt with beds for 2 adults, a fridge, and microwave so we dont need to rent a hotel or anything. Chris will be taking us up there and getting all the info tomorrow and then my mom will come up to stay with us to help out with Brady.. He will be hooked up to his EEG leads for a while and I am not to sure how that is going to work.. now that he is rolling around and pulling at things. We are hoping to be back Sunday with some new Plan of Action. So please keep us in your prayers, expecially my Brady. We want these siezures and spasms to stop!! Pray for us as we travel, my mom too! I will keep you updated with any news as soon as I get a chance. Pray Pray Pray!

Let us know if there is anything we can do for y'all. We're praying for Brady and for his doctors.

Luv the updates. And looking forward to hearing good news from the docs today.

There are no coincidences... only prayers answered in advance.
