Here is an update for those wanting to know how things are going for the Braddocks.  We are hanging in there.  William is still the same.  Sleep is almost non-existant, and we are trying different medicines for his increase in tremors and seizures.
There are two things that we know for sure about life. There will always be change. And…there will always be hope. Sometimes it can be anticipated and even controlled, and often it cannot. Sometimes we are startled by its suddenness, and other times it is so gradual that it takes a lifetime to see.
Hope is innate. Whether we realize it or not, we evaluate change and we either comfortably or uncomfortably embrace it and, once we do, almost immediately hope enters the picture. We pull ourselves up by the bootstraps. We reinvent ourselves.
We catch ourselves mulling over the ‘what ifs,’ and the current status of it all just kind of gets us.  However, we are trying to live in the present as each day is truly a NEW day, and we’re going to live it to the fullest!  We realize that we are truly blessed in so many ways.
Hope is the anchor of the soul.      Hebrews 6: 19

  2. It is so difficult for us to live one day at a time. That is all we are promised and God will honor you all for taking this trial and trying to live for today and seeking him in all things. Many prayers are being said for you all, God hears those prayers and will answer!
