The Day We Killed the Pasta and Other Kindergarten Tales
An Ambulance With Wings is a story of faith and how God works through ordinary people. The story begins with a couple who lived without thinking of God or His purpose. As their story unfolds, through the birth of their son, God finds them in a neonatal intensive care unit. Within minutes after Isaac's birth, he begins to have horrible seizures followed by a multitude of tests to find their cause. As their son fights for life, the days are not easy as hours turn to days and hope turns to despair. The couple is devastated as they learn their newborn son has suffered bilateral strokes while still in the womb. A diagnosis of cerebral palsy and epilepsy combine to form a bleak prognosis, that's where faith comes in.
It is often said there is no medical explanation for why Isaac survived. In only four short years Isaac was in intensive care 8 times, hospitalized 3 additional times, airlifted by helicopter 3 times, taken by ambulance 3 more, on life support 2 times and underwent 2 major brain surgeries for status seizures. Still, Isaac does what many thought he may never do: he walks, talks, runs and has normal intelligence. Even more amazing, since hemispherectomy brain surgery, Isaac does all that with barely over half of his brain.
In An Ambulance With Wings, a mother gives you heart wrenching details of the days spent in intensive care with not only Isaac, but his younger brother who also spent time in the neonatal intensive care. You will feel that you are there as you travel the journey from birth to brain surgery and beyond. You will find encouragement in your own walk with the Lord as you witness how God used the events of one child's life to build a testimony!
