Dear Friends,

It has been awhile since you have heard from us so we wanted to send a quick update on our daughter.
Update on Catherine
Catherine Webster
As of Friday, April 23rd, Catherine has undergone all of the tests at the Montreal Neurological Institute.  She will return for another checkup in July, otherwise she seems to be well on the road to recovery!  Her sleeping patterns are back to normal, and she has already returned to part time work.  She even accompanied us last weekend to another funeral in Sept-Îles, and though she did have a seizure, she bounced back from it relatively well.
The conclusions from the tests were as follows: First that her brain does not use glucose properly, though we aren't sure how that works into the whole picture.  Second, she is having two types of seizures, epileptic and non epileptic. The latter are triggered by the former in situations of extreme fatigue.  Third, that her problem is benign. She is on Trileptal in order to control the epileptic seizures.

So, Lord willing, she should be able to return to Bob Jones University to continue her freshman year this fall.  It will be a challenge for her to adjust to certain limitations and to new habits.  She will not be able to take a full academic load and will be restricted in the kind of job that she can have.  Please pray for her as she learns to get the right amount of sleep, eat properly (including snacks), plan time wisely, and most of all trust God in difficult situations (reducing stress).

Thank you for your prayer support through this trial. Needless to say, Melanie and I both have gotten quite behind in many areas of life and ministry.   Please continue to pray as we begin an incredibly full summer.  We are so thankful for the rest that the Lord provided for us in California last fall. Little did we know!  But He knew all!
We are ever thankful for your prayer support!
In Christ,
