On the road again...

Hello again!
I wanted to drop a line to everyone before I leave town this morning.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We have a six hour drive ahead of us today to get to Fort Worth to see my daughter's specialists and have some testing done.
We have made this trip more times than I can count, but it is still very hard on my body. Samantha will be in the hospital for at least 24 hours for a video EEG. This trip could result in yet ANOTHER operation for my beautiful girl.
That would bring us to 13 operations in 6 1/2 years.
I have done quite a bit of research on seizure control options to prepare myself for this trip. Now the only trick will be getting her doctor to listen to me and be willing to work with me.
Please pray for us while we are gone, and my husband too. He is unable to go with us this time and will be stuck at home with our son. Grandma is going to help out during the day while Darrell is at work (because Grandma is just GREAT like that...) but Darrell will have the little monster by himself the rest of the time.
Auron is ALL BOY.
This could get interesting...
