No seizures since last Monday!

Monday 9:30

After bravely coping with thousands of seizures over the years, Jack has now been seizure-free for one week!!!  The seizures could return over the next days, weeks, or years but today we celebrate another healthy day for Jack!!!!

Jack still remains incredibly weak and in some pain at times, but has gone for several rides in the reclined wheelchair.  Yesterday Dave brought him in a nerf blaster gun and Jack loved it.  My fear is that Jack’s doctors and nurses, particularly the ones who give needles, will start to be on the receiving end of the darts as Jack gets stronger 🙂

    Hi Jack,

    What an absolutely amazing guy you are – you look so ‘cool’ in the wheelchair (although we all know it is a mobile transponder, don’t we!). Now be careful where you aim that blaster gun – remember, only the ones who give needles, right!

    Jodi, Dave, and Christopher – with each passing day you are one step closer to recapturing ‘normality’. It will be quite an adjustment for you all, but you do not walk alone.

    Yours in Christ,

    Rev. Mike

    Hi Jack and Jodi, Dave and Christopher,
    What great news to start the week with! You do look cool in your mobile transponder – hope it takes you to interesting places. Before you know it you are going to be blasting that nerf gun outside! Keep up the good work!
    Take care of yourselves and each other. June

    Hey Jack that is fantastic a week with out sparks, and can I borrow your nerf blaster,
    I just might need it… Jodie and Dave the mountains tointo hills for now so its not so hard to climb, But faith does’s alot to keep one going God speed in the healing process Just try not to jump up as that is what I do and endup on the floor, for a time.
    Just so Jack knows that they get realy angrey at puns to the iv team and blood testing,
    But I think your doing great, for a little brother.

    Ha Ha Jodi – your sense of humour is still well and alive….I can absolutely see those poor hard suffering nurses receiving some Nerf Blaster shots if they don’t give Jack some peace and quiet!! Perhaps we should make him a big star wars target so he can take his frustrations out on something other than the amazing staff at Sick Kids (I will get my kids to start crafting one)!

    He is still looking amazing and I am delighted to hear he is still seizure free. Hope Jack’s pain eases over the next while.


  9. Way to go Jack!
    Bet you can’t get me with that Nerf Blaster.
    You keep getting stronger everytime I see you- pretty soon you, your dad and I can do a race around the hospital.
    See you soon.

    Hi Jack,
    I have just caught up with all Mummies Blogs about you, you are one amazing
    little fellow, my hope is that you continue to make progress and will be out
    and about running around soon, I have taken a little gift into the Church for
    you but everyone seems to have a bad cold at the moment, so the first one to
    visit you will bring it. Give my love to Mummy, Daddy and Christopher we are
    all still praying for you. Lots of love and a big hug ‘Auntie Pam’
