Last Day for Give Away:)

Ok, so I'm on way to the doctor yesterday and my cell phone rings. It's Hayden's (my 12 yr old) assistant principal. I think, "oh no, what's he done?" She says, "Mrs. Taylor, your son Hayden passed out in the cafeteria, you need to come to the school." Immediate prayer begins in my head and heart. I change my direction from my doctor to Hayden's school. I'm scared.

This is not the first time this has happened. When Hayden "passes out" it looks more like a seizure and he appears to be unconscious for about 30 seconds. 30 seconds is quick, but when it's your child laying there, it seems like forever. This is happening way too much lately.

Thankfully, Hayden is fine. Our doctor thinks he has a condition called Vasovagal Syncope, which really is just fainting. He has all the symptoms. When he passes out, there is always an event around it. Our family has a history of this with me, my husband, and 2 of my other kids...only when we faint, we are not unresponsive for so long and our eyes don't flutter and roll around. Hayden's reaction just looks scary. But we think he's okay. Just in case, however, we have an appointment with a cardiologist. I would treasure your prayers.

So, needless to say, I didn't post yesterday. If you checked in to leave a comment in an attempt to win the prize, I'm sorry. Post today. I'll probably try to get one more "beautiful" post in before I do the drawing. I'll do it tomorrow instead of today;) That's my style anyway.....just kidding.

Have a great day....Good Friday it is. And I don't want to take away from that. Please take time to read in your Bible what we are remembering and celebrating this weekend. Jesus died for us. He also rose from the dead for us. Allelujah!

Love,

Melissa

Hi Melissa,
I will be praying for your son Hayden. That has to be a scary thing to go through for sure. Thank you for the reminder about reading our Bibles this weekend, I am going to read all the gospels' version of Jesus going to cross, resurrection, etc...I just happened to see the movie the Book of John on tv last Sunday, I don't know if you have watched it, but it was awesome, all the dialogue was straight from the book of John word for word and really was impacting hearing Jesus speak those words of John as opposed to reading them.
Many blessings to you and your family for Easter, and I pray your foot is healing well too!

I am so sorry to hear about your son but I'm glad he is doing all right. It's always a scary thing when we get a call like that from school and even more so when we aren't nearby to get there quickly. I will be praying for your son and your family. So far I have enjoyed reading your comments daily. Have a blessed Easter.

So thankful Hayden is Ok. How are YOU doing? Sending a hug.

Had to smile when I read: "I'll do it tomorrow instead of today;) That's my style anyway..." Just HAVE to say...I notice it's still "4 for 4" on that procrastination page - warned you that would happen :o)

Rejoicing today, because He Lives,
Joy

Hi Melissa,
First day on your blog site and interested to read of your weight loss challenge you are doing - am helping in a group through our church helping women lose weight all the way over here in New Zealand. Will be thinking of you - it is not an easy journey but what is easy for good in this life. God is the best director in this programme. May He stay close by when you need those hugs.
