Nothing yet…

We’re still waiting for seizures.  Ben’s spirits are great, despite the fact that his headache refuses to let up.  He’s been in the hospital for over a week.  I’ve tried everything I can think of to trigger his seizures, including picking fights and pretending to be depressed.  So far, no seizures.

Ben can’t do much.  But he did manage to lose his cell phone in his tiny hospital room.  He left it in his bed when the nurse and I changed his sheets.  Unfortunately, the sheets were thrown into the laundry chute along with thousands of other linens, and the phone was on low vibrate.  His replacement phone arrived today, and should be hooked up and ready to receive calls tomorrow.

The doctors keep trying to assure us that the seizures should start soon.  We pray that they will.  I joked a while ago that this might be like the Eagles song Hotel California:  “you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.”  Please pray that we can leave soon.

    Still amazing about no seizures. Have you tried playing online memory games? How about going down “Memory Lane” with some pictures? Is he restricted from playing his trombone? Maybe you (former English teacher) could make him write a paper “What I Did On My (Fake) Summer Vacation”.

    Maybe he should talk to Steve about something?

    How about asking him directions for the way home?

    Here are some interesting sites — memory game combined with vocabulary from different fields of study (not that he needs any vocab. lesson) — http://www.wordlywise3000.com/games/frame.cfm?book=4&game=hm&id=324365&lessons=17–20

    Here are some vocabulary games from 12th grade book

    Hi Ben and Nancy,
    We are thinking about you all and praying several times a day. Our hearts are heavy thinking about what you are going through. We (the Cash family) want you to know that we would love to be there to help create chaos (we are very good at this by the way), but we have had some pretty significant obligations here that have hindered our road trips to Baltimore. We will be gone for 2 weeks after tomorrow.
    Thank you for keeping us updated. It is always a comfort just to hear your status.

    We just want to let you know how much you mean to us. We are provoked by your faithful example to praise God, to trust God, to share your lives with us, and to continue to serve throughout this entire trial.

    We will anticipate word of your release when we get back.If not, we will be forced to come on up to Baltimore and unleash the “Cash Chaos”. We will do whatever needs to be done to help!!!

    Love,
    Brooks and Marianne

    My dear friends Nancy & Ben, my heart is aching with you during this wait. All of us who love you are begging God to be merciful to you moment by moment and across all that you both are enduring. May the Holy Spirit touch those places in each of your spirits that need encouragement, as they are undoubtably beyond the reach of human words.

    -Kirsten
