I talked, yelled, and cried to her. I held her head and looked into her eyes. She couldn't make eye contact with me. When the seizure started to settle down, she looked at me, but I could tell she did not recognize me. Then all of the sudden, I could see it coming over her face. She recognized me and tried to speak, but the words wouldn't come.
I'm sure the whole ordeal only lasted a few minutes, but at that time, my whole world stood still!
I got some children's advil down her, followed by some water. Then we got dressed and went to the ER for her to be checked out. Before we left, her appetite returned and she asked for breakfast. By the time we got to the ER, she acted completely normal.
The doctor said it was a febrile seizure. He is hopeful that she will not seize again because these particular seizures usually occur in infants - age 5. It is when the body heats up too quickly and the brain can not compensate and shuts down.
If this were not bad enough, my husband left work to go to the hospital with us. He had to take a point for leaving. This is only the third point he has had in over ten years!
Phys ed: Jumping on the trampoline. Seriously! The same girl that about gave me heart failure this morning was feeling up to getting some fresh air and bouncing around!
