Yelling At Jesus

A final update on Ethan.  He seems to be fine.  He goes back to the doctor today for a checkup, but everything looks to be back to normal.

I just have to share one funny story in this whole episode.  When Ethan had the first seizure, we immediately got off the road and Jennifer jumped out of the car to go get him out of the car seat.  As she was unbuckeling him, she was praying.  I mean really praying.  Praying with intensity.  Praying loudly.  Praying with a passion and a purpose.  She grabbed Ethan and got him out of the car and kept praying…even more loudly.

After I got off the phone with 911, I went to check on Isaac who was still sitting in his car seat wondering what was going on.  I tried to explain to him that Brother was sick and we need an ambulance to come and take him to the hospital. 

He looked at me and said, “Daddy, Mommy is yelling at Jesus.  She said ‘O Jesus.’ We’re not posed to say O Jesus.”  I couldn’t help but laugh.

  1. I’m so thankful that Ethan is doing well. We’ve followed your posts about it in prayer. I laughed with you about Isaac’s comment. That is a sometimes difficult distinction to make for a young one. Don’t you love this stage, so innocent and so real?

  2. Tell Isaac that his Mommy is in good company, yelling out to Jesus.

    “And when he [Bartimaeus] heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out (Gr.”krazo”–scream, shriek, call aloud) and say, ‘Jesus , Son of David, have mercy on me!’ And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he cried out all the more, ‘Son of David, have mercy on me.”
    Mark 10:47-48
