The Fourth of July used to be an anxious day in our home.  Caleb's first seizure was July 4, 2006, and every July after that he typically had a terrible increase of seizures that day.  But today, he is Free, and there is no anxiety, no run to the ER, no emergency medication, no pain, no seizures. 
Today, I am going to be grateful for that.  However, I will miss him not being here with us.  When he could still speak, he was 4 years old, and we went with our family to Disney World that Christmas.  His favorite thing was the Spectromagic Parade, and afterward they did the amazing firework display---Caleb would say "Look, Christmas", so from then on, fireworks were "Christmas" for him.  I would show him his card with fireworks on it, and every 4th I would tell him we would go to Aunt Ellen's and Uncle Jason's to watch "Christmas", sometimes, we would see a smile.  I hope he gets to see "Christmas" up in Heaven today. 
This 4th of July, I am thankful for my freedom, for my dear family and friends, for freedom to worship in this great country, for those who protect and defend us daily...but most of all, I am thankful to God for freeing Caleb from seizures and taking him home with Him.  He is safe, he is happy, he is FREE. 
Bless you all,
