Prayers for Soren's Cousin Karis

Karis Keating needs your prayers. She is the daughter of my cousin Brad and she also has Epilepsy. I've written about her before and that the doctors do not know about a genetic link between their conditions. Karis, like Soren, has struggled with seizures. And tomorrow she will go in for surgery to try and gain control.

Tomorrow afternoon, Karis will have a Vagus Nerve Stimulator implanted in her neck. The VNS is like a pacemaker for the brain. It sends pulses to try and stop the seizures before they become full blown. Karis needs your good thoughts and prayers as she goes through the procedure, which will hopefully result in seizure control.

Thank you all!
