I have been reading Patty’s blog for more than a year and this post in particular is so touching in both its honesty and encouragement as she and her husband care for their special needs son Aaron. Walking With Lambs is all about long term care and I am delighted to be able to share Patty’s post that just goes to show that long-term care is not just in facilities called nursing homes. I pray that you will be blessed as much as I was with her story!
I heard Aaron’s first seizure at 12:38 this morning. The second was at 2:37. As I often say, Aaron would appreciate that I am using the precise time.
Not long after 4:00 I heard him rustling. It wasn’t a seizure. I listened and knew that he was out of bed. He went to the bathroom and then back to his room. I heard his door close.
I got up and went to his room, fairly sure of what I would find. He had changed his pajamas and was getting ready to climb back into bed.
His sheets were wet. Bed wetting seizures are common to Aaron.
I had him sit in his desk chair as I changed his sheets. He watched my every move, as he is not only bent on using precision with his time keeping but is also particular about his bedding being just right.
I was thankful…
