I am one of 5 kids.  My oldest sister, Ann, has 4 children.  Her oldest, Sean, has Angelman Syndrome, "a genetic disorder which causes severe developmental delay.  The most striking symptoms are mental retardation, seizures, a severe speech disorder (in most cases, lack of speech), and gross and fine motor difficulties". 

Sean is currently in the hospital with seizures.  This certainly is not the first time he has been in for seizures, but it is after the longest period since the last visit.  Sean went about a 1 1/2 years without an episode like he is experiencing right now.  Please say some prayers for this little guy.
