Prayers for our grandson Drew........

Updated at 4:12 pm: This is Amy (picketfencemom), Betty's daughter. Drew was taken by helicopter to Egleston Children's Hospital, and is in ICU there. My sister said that he is still not awake, but that when the nurses stuck him with the IV needle...his eyes did pop open. The doctors there are doing a CT scan just to rule out various causes of the seizures, but they still don't have answers yet. But my sister and BIL are encouraged, and that encourages us! Thank you for concern and please keep praying! My parents are on their way up there, so please pray for traveling mercies for them as well.

Our twelve year old grandson Drew is in special need of your prayers. This morning at school he had a seizure, passed out and is in the hospital. His mother is a teacher and was able to come to him quickly. He is being evaluated in the local hospital. He has had a grand mal seizure and four others. They are checking him for menningitis and making arrangements to transfer him to Atlanta , probably Egleston's Children Hospital. His father has diabetes so there may be a connection.

Drew is a precious, loving child, so mannerly.

We know our gracious Lord hears the prayers of His children.. We feel so in need of Him .

Thank you.

Drew's Mam and Pop

Hello Amy...
I was so pleased to find you had updated Betty’s Blog with news. I woke so many times during the night thinking of you all and my prayers and positives thoughts continue as strong as ever.
When you speak to your Mum, please pass on our good wishes. I know the Lord is holding you all in his hand right now.
Blessings - Marion
