Prayers Needed

Would you all please say a prayer for my Son Jantzen? Saturday afternoon he stood up and wrapped his arms around me to hug me. I said to him...."Oh my goodness Jantzen, you are sooo heavy" and then I kind of pushed him away from me. Immediately he fell straight backwards and went down on the floor! As I bent down to get him, I realized he was having a seizure! He also was a bit confused and saying things that didn't make sense. To say this scared us to death is a HUGE understatement!

After a bit, he was alert and able to get up. Although, He continued to do things that were just "off" Like, saying my hands were on fire (to the touch) which they were NOT!! We rushed him to the ER and they did quite a few tests as well as a Ct scan. Everything came back NORMAL! Which is GREAT NEWS except that, we need to figure out Why this happened! The ER doctor explained to us that even with all the tests he did coming back normal that we need to get Jantz to a neurologist and do more tests! He explained that he could have epilepsy.

So today I will be taking him to see our family doctor and then he will refer us to a neurologist! I am praying the LORD direct our steps and we are connected with a wonderful Neurologist and that they can determine what is going on. There is a possibility that it might be dehydration that caused it, but this is a determination that we came up with on our own. The ER doc never even considered that so we might be way off base.

How can you pray?
That we be referred to an amazing neurologist
That we find the truth of why this happened.
No more seizures!!
This isn't anything more serious!!

Thank you all sooo much!! I will keep you all posted and for so many of you who saw my FACEBOOK STATUS and have already been praying I can't even begin to thank you enough! Having your love and support as well as prayers is such a GIFT FROM THE LORD!!




I am praying for your son and for each of you. May God lead you to a knowledgeable neurologist. Keeping you close in my heart and prayers.


Oh Loren I have already prayed for you all and I will continue. I am sure it was VERY scary. We don't know exactly what is going on of course, but our Lord does. And you can know He will keep it all in His very capable hands...

Just thought I would tell you (though I am sure you have heard a million stories by now) that one of my nephews had this happen to him. He had a seizure, and then another a few days later, and they NEVER did know why. It has now been 4 years and he has never had another. Also one of my daughter's best friends in high school had one once and has never had another. They never knew on that one either other than her doc said she had a virus of some sort and sometimes those can cause them in certain people. They of course have been out of high school 7 years.

Praying....I will check back later for updates. HUGS, Debbie

And with those requests, I add coverage. Father, surround this beautiful family in care that is as sure as You. May they, each one, feel Your Presence through each door, in every room, with every answer. May they walk in confidence, knowing that You will bring it all to light. We trust You, in the Name of Jesus ♥

Bless you, sister. I'm so sorry to hear that you're going through this and can only imagine the fear in those first hours.

Love to you, Loren, and a warm hug!


Praying for all of you!

Oh sweet friend.. I'm praying.. trusting our Great Physician has it all taken care of...


I'm so sorry to hear this, Loren. I pray you will find the answers. I know how scary this must be.
Blessings and prayers for you and your family,


Praying for wisdom and revelation for the doctors. Praying for healing. Praying for peace!


Praying for Jantz and all of you. Keep us posted.
Love you!

Sassy Granny ...

Oh sweet, girl, how worrisome! You bet I'll pray.

Years ago (38 to be exact), my oldest son who was 3 accidentally (?) pushed his little sister who was 18 mos. off the top stair into the garage. She fell 5 stairs onto a concrete floor and also began convulsing. I called the neighbor to watch the children (we also had an infant at the time), then rushed her straight to the hospital - thankfully only 2 miles from our home. By the time we arrived she was alert, giggly, and hungry.

All tests proved to be of no concern, but it sure scared the bananas out of me. I pray your tests reveal likewise!



Loren, I am so sorry, this must be so scary for you and all of your family. I will pray for answers for you all. Hugs to you.


Sweet sister, I can't believe this post didn't come up on blog reader-I'm so sorry but lifting your boy up right now. Please feel free to always contact me with prayer needs.
Hugs, love and prayers.


Oh my goodness! I've already started praying. Please continue to update. I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. Take a deep breath and trust that God will lead you to the right doctors and the right diagnosis.


Loren Sweetie,

I just am now getting back connected to internet, and I saw something on FB, and knew I needed to come right over here, and see what was going on! My heart was racing after I got done reading this post. I am so thankful once again that you know the ONE who knows when we don't. You know the ONE that brings the greatest comfort at a time like this(and always). Hold strong Loren. Love to you, and praying for your dear Jantz, and you and your husband as well. Hugs my friend((((hugs))))

For some reason it will not put my name on this post??? It's me...Darcie.

Praying for all of you! I hope you've gotten answers since yesterday and that he is feeling better. In Jesus' name. Concerned about all of you, my friend!


How scary! Lots of prayers!


Oh, Loren, I just popped in to say Hi and see what's up with you and I am stunned to read about Jantzen. That is some very scary stuff and I will be praying fervently that you find the answers you are hoping for. Sending lots of positive energy and love to you and your sweet family. Hang in there!!!
