Christy's Award of Merit

When I had my last seizure, Eric was not home. Christy stayed home with me so that she could help with Daniel. She was able to help me after I had my seizure, and the police officer that responded to the call was so impressed with her, that he nominated her for the Chief's Award of Merit!

Here is what the certificate says on the back:
"On May 16th, 2010, Officer Lerfald was dispatched to a residence on a report of a female unconscious and lying down in the shower. Upon arrival, Officer Lerfald learned that Christina was playing with her 5 month old brother when she heard her mother crying for help. Christina found her mother unresponsive in the shower and called her father for help. Her father instructed her to turn off the water and hold her mother's head out of the water."

"Officer Lerfald was amazed at Christina's maturity level and composure. She followed instructions and provided an airway for her mother while taking care of her 5 month old brother."

I am so thankful that Christy was home, and that she played such a vital role in helping me after my seizure. She may be only 9 years old, but she is so mature and responsible. God is so good to give me such a wonderful daughter!

We are all very blessed because of how Christy is. Sweet, caring and fun to visit with. I can not wait to see her and hug her when we get back there in about a month.
Love you all,
