A Prayer Request

Blogging was never really going to be an option today. I had work to get done on the loft before heading to Vancouver on a late afternoon flight. Then, Kai came home from an early morning basketball practice, began to complain about numbness in her hands, then face – then she began to use the wrong words in sentences and complained of a rapid onset headache. The words thing freaked Imbi and I out and we rushed her (through rush hour – which is a misnomer – no one can rush in stop-and-go traffic) to Sick Kids hospital.

She was truly rushed through Emerg (around 9:30 this morning) and she’s still there. The doctors think it is a migraine – but the words thing confuses them to. They aren’t worried but are concerned. We await a response from Neurology. Your prayers would be appreciated.

UPDATE: Kaili got home late in the afternoon, yesterday. The doctors are convinced it was a severe migraine but will be doing further testing in a number of weeks. Thank you to all who prayed, who called and emailed, and to those of you who took the time to comment. I really appreciate the generous nature of this virtual world we traverse together.

  2. Bill – I will definitely pray. I sometimes lose feeling in one side of my body and slur words when I get migraines. Initially, I had to run the gamut of neurological testing, but in the end it was just a migraine. I sympathize, and I will pray that is all this is.

    (Not that a migraine is a little thing, but little in comparison to other things the Dr’s thought my symptoms might indicate.)

  5. Those are some very scary symptoms …. I will be praying.

    I have a seizure disorder, so I know a little about sudden onset of neurological disfunction. It’s frightening and disorienting … mostly because it feels like ghosts walking. Especially all the tests. I’ll be praying for peace and clarity for all of you.

  6. Yeah, been there.
    I can’t imagine what it is like to be a parent, the waiting and what if’s are so scary.

    Fortunately you had access to one of the best neurology departments in the country.

    Will be praying for all of you.

    It was definitely a scary couple of hours, and I know your support was very beneficial to my frightened father.
