Bennett


I know that there are some people out there who don't believe that there is a God.
I know that there are also some people out there who aren't sure if they believe.
Then there are the people who just don't believe. All of that is fine, and I totally believe each person if entitled to their own beliefs.

But what I would like to ask if that you take just a minute or so out of your time, and pray, say a chant, light a candle, whatever it is you might do. Talk to whoever it is or whatever it is that you look to for guidance and assurance.

In that minute ask for things to go well for Bennett. He is a little boy who has uncontrollable seizures daily, and hopefully today will be the last of the days for him to suffer from them.
He is currently in surgery right at this moment and his parents are waiting for news. I can't even begin to imagine what they are going through.

Bennett is having a Temporal Lobectomy to remove a brain tumor/cortical dysplasia that has been causing him devastating seizures, resulting in a regression developmentally (cognitively speaking) to essentially that of an 8-9 month old. With this surgery the goal is to stop the seizures .

You can check on his dad's blog to see how he is doing, and wish them well.
And for that moment you took for Bennett, I personally thank you.
Because if it were me waiting for Daniel to come out of surgery, I would want you to do the exact same thing and get everyone else you know to just send a good vibe their way.
