The 30 days or so have been a roller coaster with our children, particularly Presley. Six days before Christmas I went to get her from her nap only to find her having a seizure. The doctors attributed this to a spike in temp. Fast forward to mid-march and she had 3 seizures in 24hrs. We met with a pediatric neurologist who wanted to watch and wait but still get a MRI to check things out. Well the very next day she had another seizure and I was lucky enough to remain calm and video a portion of it which the doctor was able to evaluate. She is now on medicine and seems to be doing great!
Yesterday she had her MRI which I was really worried about because she had to be sedated. I tend to let paranoia set in sometimes and was worried she wouldn’t wake up or have some type of reaction. Not only did she wake up with a smile but her big brother couldn’t wait to hug her. Praise The Lord her results came back normal! It’s exciting on one front and frustrating on another since we still have no answers as to what is causing them.
I walked with nurses as they wheeled my baby girl for her test and passed little cribs that were hospital beds. At that moment I felt blessed that my little one was only there for one test. There are plenty of babies and children who are at the hospital day in and day out for round after round of tests. And then there’s the parents who have to stay strong for their children and loved ones. Thank God for the blessings in your life and say a prayer for those who might not be as fortunate.
Also they gave Presley a blanket to keep her warm and it had the above note attached to it. God Bless kind people.
