Benign Rolandic Epilepsy
Here is a description taken from Epilepsy.com
Who gets it?
This syndrome represents about 15% of all epilepsies in children. The seizures begin at an average age of about 6 to 8 years (range 3-13) and are a bit more likely to affect boys. The children generally have normal intelligence, which is not affected by the seizures. The syndrome is more common in children who have close relatives with epilepsy.
Tell me more
Benign rolandic epilepsy (BRE) is named after the rolandic area of the brain, which controls movement in the affected part of the face. It is also called by other names, especially benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BCECTS). That name refers to certain patterns ("spikes") seen on the child's EEG, which help to identify the syndrome. Other tests, such as the neurologic examination and MRI (if performed), are normal. While the condition is considered benign -- since most children with the condition outgrow the seizures -- during the period of time when the disorder is active, some children will have learning difficulties and behavioral problems. The problems typically disappear once the seizures stop and the EEG reverts to normal.
Please intercede for Judson in prayer. As his father I pray for the day of his salvation through our Lord and Savior and I pray for him to be used greatly of our mighty God and Creator.

September 11, 2001 was a tragic day. Almost 3000 people lost their lives that day. For that reason, and for the threat that lumes ahead, we are at war. Lives have been lost in the process. But maybe lives have been saved in the process.
3000. That's a large number for a day.
4000 babies are aborted daily. 40 million since 1973. That's so terrible, I may write my congressman a letter.
