Home safe.

Jude came home from the hospital last night. We really don’t have any answers. All the tests came back normal. The doctors don’t know why he fainted. A fluke? Over-tired? Sinus infection? We just don’t know. Sometimes there are no answers. Actually, A LOT of times there are no answers. I’m just glad we’re home, we’re safe and he’s OK. Jude slept all night last night and almost the whole day today. A few minutes ago I heard him laughing with his brother. It was the sweetest sound ever. Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement. It meant so much. I’m absolutely exhausted now. Now that everyone is OK, I feel like going to bed and sleeping for at least two weeks. xo, EE.

    Good news, Elizabeth. I am sure the doctors covered tests for this possibility, but my first instinct was that he did not faint but had a seizure. No one saw it happen. It may have been just a petit mal/ absence seizure. Take care.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    I’m curious as to what kind of EEG Jude was given. I started getting seizures when I was 11, but the first EEG test i was given showed no seizure activity. It wasn’t until they did the longer version -where they made me sleep – that they found the seizure activity going on. I hope Jude doesn’t have epilepsy, but it might be worth following up with the neurologist if it happens again.

    So happy to hear you’re all home. Prayers that you’ll find the answers your seeking soon.

    So glad all are okay. The picture you posted melted my heart, I could picture my own son in the hospital bed!

    My dad fainted a few years ago (he is very fit and healthy), went to the hospital and they couldn’t figure out why, either. Our guess was some kind of viral, flu-ish type thing. I’m glad they ran the tests to rule out more serious causes. Sleep well!

    I’m happy nothing is wrong! Hope you get some rest today.

    Elizabeth, I’m so glad your son is home safe. These things do happen more often than you think, but there IS an answer for the reason why it happens. Everybody is looking in the wrong place for answers because the problem is not physical like a virus or birth defect. Your answers are spiritual. I’ve seen this happen time and time again to people I know as well as the church at large. They do not want to believe the cause is what I say it is, but there is so much evidence, the truth cannot be hidden for long. God says, “Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest” (Proverbs 26:2). That means curses, which can be any bad event like accidents, lose of money, illnesses and such, are never given to people without a cause for it. The doctors could not find a medical reason for your son’s event because there is none. I’ve seen “fainting accidents” happen many times in friends in the motorcycling community. They are generally healthy people but all of a sudden faint or get dizzy while riding and have a serious accident. Your son was the victim of a curse, like others I’ve seen, because of his own or his parents’ sin. Children can suffer curses caused by their parents’ sin because God stated they can be inherited from parents (Exodus 20:5, Numbers 14:18, Deuteronomy 5:9, Jeremiah 32:18). These are called Generational Curses. It is no accident that your son had this problem while I’ve come to know you here recently. God wants you to know the full truth of things and how to get complete salvation (both eternal and non-eternal, like deliverance and healing from curses). The church often dismisses bad things in their lives as just accidents or if they do accept they’ve been cursed because of wrongdoing, they still don’t understand why or how they should break the curse permanently. Prayers for healing and things can be granted in cases where you are cursed, but the deliverance will be temporary if the sin is not corrected permanently. I’ve seen this happen often, as well. People cursed with cancer often get healing after prayers, but the cancer usually comes back and often is much worse the next times. They keep getting cursed because they have not corrected their sin, which they do not know they are committing or they choose not to accept the truth if they are told. I made a documentary video showing the truth and an intro to how to correct the problems of getting cursed. A major sin committed by the church is revealed there that is causing a lot of the curses you see today in the church. Please watch it because the welfare of your family is at stake too.

    In the interest of being helpful, can I add my own little story? Our son had what we thought was a seizure and fell off the chair at dinner one night. They ran a battery of tests and never found anything. He did it again in school a few months ago and they ran more tests. Come to find out, both times, he hit his knee or his funny bone right before it happened (bonked it on a table leg both times). Some kids as they’re growing so fast can’t process that sensation and their brain checks out on them. So what we thought was seizures was really just fainting from hitting his funny bone. Now we’re just aware that he does it and try to tell him that if he hits something, to get on the floor right away. And he should out grow it. Isn’t that weird? And yet such a relief to know it wasn’t as serious as we believed. So have hope!!!!! Sometimes kids just do weird wonky things and it really isn’t the worst case. Hugs, Mama!

    A good friend had this happen twice when he was young. All tests showed normal. Then, in his mid-20s, he passed out again. Eventually they found he had something wrong with his heart, a valve I think, and it was a birth defect that was difficult to detect. He had open heart surgery to correct it, and I’m happy to say is a happy healthy man in his forties. Just something to keep in the back of your mind.

    I can’t stop thinking about you, Jude, and your whole family. I’ve been praying for you constantly. The unknown can be so scary so I am praying for answers.
