Too much excitement and another seizure!

Luella had too much excitement tonight and had another seizure. Grandpa and Grandma Johnson arrived here tonight after being gone to Florida for the winter. We surprised the kids by going for a drive and bringing them to Grandpa and Grandma's new house!! (YES!!! They are moving closer to us!!!!) All the kids had so much fun running around the house. Luella was quite active and ended up having a tonic clonic (grand mal) seizure. I know a seizure is a seizure, but I really hate those tonic clonics - they look so dramatic! I gave her one dose of midazolam and it did stop but she went to sleep and then pretty much stayed asleep and went to bed for the night.

We had Luella's depakote levels checked this morning, we'll find out in a couple days what that shows but we suspect that her levels are low and that is what is causing these more frequent seizures. We would appreciate prayers that we can get her seizures more in control again and that we don't lose our happy, eating-again Luella if we have to increase her med doses again.
