Seizure in Estelline

We were in Estelline on Saturday - it was Rodeo Days and Jim's brother and family were there too. The kids had fun playing with cousins we haven't seen since last summer. Luella had a good nap in the afternoon then we went down town to the inflatables for a little bit.

Luella initially wasn't too interested but then she did want to jump a bit. It was empty so I went in with her to keep a closer eye. She ended up having a seizure.  :(

I've feared Luella having a seizure in Estelline. There is no hospital in town, although they do have a nursing home. We always have Luella's rescue meds with her and we did bring the oxygen tank too. She needed 2 doses of midazolam to stop the seizure. This seizure was a pretty strong one and she was really wiped out afterwords. She slept for 3 hours and it took another 2 hours to really get back to normal.

I'm more cautious about letting Luella do certain things but she is also a kid and we want her to be able to do normal kid things too. Hopefully there will be a day when we can be carefree again and just let her do whatever she wants!
