    Default Update on Our Gabe

    Just want to thank all of you for your prayers and kind words. He has been resting the past couple of days. Between the rescue medication, and the anti seizure meds, + the actual seizure has had him pretty wiped out. I haven't seen them for a few days as we always go out of town when DD is on vaca...and it fell during their spring break. DD did not want us to cut our trip short and go home, so we stayed at the lake....(wishing we would have gone home). I was getting ready to take a nap today, when I got a text notification, then another one, and then a video call. By the time I got to my phone I missed all of them.They were from DD's phone so I immediately called her back. Gabe answered the phone...he missed his Gran and PaPa , and wanted to talk to me. He told me all about hunting Easter eggs, the dog hunting his, and all about what they were having for dinner. It made my heart smile, but made me miss them more. Then I listened to the audio message he sent...my oh my, that boy can tug at the heartstrings. There were a total of 4. The first one he was saying " I miss my Gran, and PaPa", and the other said the same thing...but then number 3. He was singing "Gran and PaPa are my number one for life" Man oh man , I was ready to pack up and head straight back, but the weather was not cooperating. Freezing rain and sleet. I will be seeing him and his sisters tomorrow though, and plan on getting some big hugs and smooches.

    How sweet! So happy you were able to talk to him. Extra big hugs and lots of kisses coming his way when you see him next, I'm sure. Still keeping him in prayer.

    So sweet Marilyn. Your little man tugged at my heart and made my eyes leak a little. Continued prayers. I know how difficult this must be for you and your family.

    Marilyn! Reading this (after Annie had informed me of another seizure) makes me just melt. Precious boy! You know I continue to pray for him and all the rest of your clan. I believe Gabe will always be in the hearts of each M* member. Hugs

    Awe Marilyn, it makes you feel so good when the little one's make those calls. His messages are ones that you'll never want to delete.
