Grand Mal 03:30

Good thing Lina has her bed in our room. I heard what sounded like she was going to vomit. She was having a Grand Mal seizure, lasted about 1.5 minutes after I got up, possibly seizing 30 seconds before I got up & got the light on. Good thing we've been thru this in the past enough times that I can keep calm even when everyone else is in panice mode. She got up about 6:30 and was her normal self so I let her go to school. I'm a little worried that she may have another seizure at school, I might just be paranoid. I have a call in to the neurologist and see what they want to do, usually they tell me to increase her Keppra then get a blood level done a week later.

    I just got the call back from the neurology nurse. I had to explain what I saw & she asked me why I called. I am wondering if she is new to the dept. I was told by the Dr that I was to call after any seizure she had even the absence seizures so that he could look & see what her last Keppra levels were then he has usually increased her dosage. Now I have to wait for another call back with the Dr's order. She won't get home until about 4:45.

    She got home and was happy, well mostly  "no music, or library, or p.e!", and she had a boy on her bus!

    I raised 4 tomboys, & 2 boys so I got a lot of practice and learned how to be a Dr at home when the ER wasn't really needed. I do great until the emergency is over then I try to find a quiet place and become a blubbering mess, then I'm ready to continue on. Also someone has to because NO ONE else in this house can do it.
