One of my friends, Katherine, has a beautiful little boy named Kael who is almost three. Kael has a very serious form of epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome. It causes sometimes constant seizures. They have tried everything imaginable for this child and it has been heartwrenching over the years to see the horrors of this disease and its effects. I can’t imagine watching your child having long lasting seizures, turning blue, and wondering if this is the seizure that will kill him or give him serious brain damage. One trip to the emergency room after another. One doctor, one powerful drug after another. You never get a chance to rest.
Kael’s family is a beautiful Catholic family with a lot of love and trust in the Lord. They have a 7 year old and a new baby, both boys as well, and they homeschool. Please go over to their new blog Kael’s Story
and read about this amazing family. And most of all please pray for them and for a cure for this devastating disease.
