Tonic Clonic (Grand Mal) This Morning

Luella ended up having another seizure Saturday morning around 9:30AM. Jim was holding her when it started and it was a Tonic Clonic (aka Grand Mal) seizure - her whole body was convulsing. We ended up giving her two doses of the Midazolam and I rushed her to the ER. Thankfully the meds did stop the seizure in under 6 minutes but we still needed her in the ER to be watched for respiratory distress (after having that much medicine).

In the ER, they took a little blood, did an influenza test and a strep test. The tests came back and Luella DOES have strep! A week ago Thursday they did a strep test and that one was negative. As much as I hate taking her to the ER, I'm glad we ended up there today so we could figure out what was going on! She is on antibiotics now and hopefully in a couple days she will be feeling much better and we can get beyond these seizures once again!

Thank you to all of you who continually pray for Luella!!
