Starting to improve today.

The only new thing to report is that she had a fairly good and uneventful day! They gave her IV meds early this morning for the seizure activity and it stopped them but made her very tired. She has slept most of the day and will probably be able to go home tomorrow morning. Thank you everyone for your prayers and kind words for Olivia. We really feel that it helps her to heal!

Rick spoke with one of the neurologists today and we found out two good points. #1 is that they do have a couple of patients with this diagnosis. One is 14 and the other 20, so it is possible to do well and much of it depends on the patient and their own symptoms. #2 is the fact that she does not have any liver problems is a big plus. Many of the kids who do not do well start out with poor liver function.

We are taking every day only one day at a time and praise God for each one that we are given!

Rick & Kelly - I'm praying that you have returned home again. I'm praising God for the good points told to you by the neurologists. I wish there was more that I could do to help you. Is there anything more I can do??? I'm continuing to pray for Olivia and everyone else in the Eding house because this effects everyone! Remember our God is in control. Miss you Olivia - hope to see you soon. Love, Mrs. Gruppen
