Another Seizure Saturday

Little Miss Luella had another seizure on Saturday morning. Jim took the kids to an Easter Egg Hunt (I stayed home to wait for softener salt to be delivered). Luella did fine during the hunt but at the end had a seizure. It was a cool morning but it was also somewhat humid. We can't be certain of the trigger but the good news is it stopped on its own with out recue meds!! This was also the very first seizure that I did not witness, it's crazy to think I've seen every one of the other 57 seizures!

The rest of the weekend Luella has done fine being outside. The weather has been so nice here - HOT even. It actually hit around 90 here today!! We are thankful that she has been able to be in the sandbox and go to the park without any more seizures!

We are going to see if we can get Luella's depakote levels checked this week. It seems like her levels are probably low now since she is having more frequent seizures and no illnesses that we know of. Jim would like to start Luella on the Ketogenic Diet but I'm not quite ready to take that step....
