| | First trip to ER: DD had a seizure today. UPDATE
What a crappy day I had!!!
Had to work this am, DH had day off with Eliza. Got a call on my cell at about 12 pm from a strange #. Listened to voicemail, it was DH frantic. Called # back. He was in an ambulance with DD on the way to the hospital. They were in his truck on the way to hallmark to get me a card when she started seizing. DH pulled over and called 911, she was still convulsing when they got there. The seizure lasted about 10 min.
They took her right away to the ER, I met them there. By the time I got there she had a 104.9 temp.......She was laying there like a rag doll, not even moving. Her arms and legs were completly limp.
I can honestly say that I have never been so scared in all of my life. My hands are shaking as I type this.
Well after 3 doc's, a ton of nurses, about 100 tests, and a big old dose of motrin, it had been determined that DD had a Febrile seizure, which are seizures caused by a high fever. She has not been sick, this came on all of a sudden. When I got her up this AM she a business as usual.
All her labs came back normal, they cant find any infection. They sent us home, and told us to watch her temp. And to follow up with the ped on monday.
They are acting like this is no big deal, but I am totally freaking out!!!!!!! I am so scared to let her go to sleep, I have checked her temp like nine times since we have been home, I am going nuts!
Eliza is fine! She is running around like a crazy wonman, like nothing ever happend....... This is so wierd!
Anyone else's kids ever had these types of seizures before????
Thanks for the rant!
