Karen Davila is thankful to Matteo Guidicelli who helped her family when her son David suffered from a seizure episode.
According to the broadcaster, Matteo and his wife Sarah Geronimo were in the lobby of their condominium unit when it happened.
"He was there in the lobby with Sarah during this experience," the broadcaster revealed when she was replying to one of her friends' posts on Instagram.
"Thank you, Matteo, for your kindness, your care," Karen added.
The broadcast journalist shared via Instagram on September 14 that her son had a "full blown seizure" when she returned to their home from Sorsogon.
"Our son David welcomed us at our condo lobby... when out of the blue, he just started having a full blown seizure!" she shared.
AMAZING GRACE 🎚 Yesterday afternoon, my husband DJ & I arrived from an overnight trip to Sorsogon. Our son David welcomed us at our condo lobby... when out of the blue, he just started having a full blown seizure! Now, seizures can be common for kids with autism but David has never really had them. He has only had one scary episode when he was 7 yrs old. Thank God for my husband & the first responders of our condo lobby. They were fast thinkers, equipped to assist & knew what to do to make sure he would stay alive. And all I did was shout the name of our Lord Jesus Christ non-stop, asking HIM to heal & save David. And this is why I am sharing this. I thank our Lord Jesus Christ for saving David yesterday. David slowly woke up and we rushed him to the ER. I thank God his memory and faculties are perfect. I thank Dr. Francis Dimalanta @fxdmd , his pedia with autism expertise. Doc Francis recently survived COVID19 & he shared that all he could do during his darkest times was call on Jesus too. David is OK now and undergoing a 24 hour video EEG which helps monitor brain movement. Our goal is to prevent this from happening again. What real FAITH & LIFE LESSON did God teach me today? There is POWER in the name of Jesus Christ! 🎚 It doesn’t matter who you are, what church you go to, whether you think you’re a good or bad person - calling on the name of Jesus changes everything! 😇 To God be the glory 🥰 Hug your kids today! Tell your family & friends how special they are! Appreciate LIFE ❤️ #sept142020

A GRATEFUL MORNING ☀️ Another day, a new reason to always be hopeful! My deepest thanks to all who messaged and were touched with David’s experience yesterday. Let me say, that it really is all about God’s grace & compassion. I will forever declare that. Thank you to the many parents who messaged me and shared their own experiences. Please know I read all your messages & value your tips & advice. David is OK but this is a life long journey that we can only overcome with love, humility, and with a teachable & open heart ❤️ Don’t forget, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness." 🥰 #sept152020 #livegrateful
