Seizure at Pipestone Pool

We thought we'd try beating the heat at the Pipestone pool tonight. Luella was decked out in her snazzy polarized sunglasses but barely made it out of the locker room before she had a seizure! She was so excited to go swimming and wanted to bring two little rubber ducks from home to swim too.  She wasn't even wet yet and we were walking in the shade of the umbrella so who knows what happens in her little brain.  It would have been 2 weeks tomorrow since her last seizure.

I sat out of the pool in the shade and held Luella while she slept. Jim, Burke and Ashlyn swam for about an hour (Ryker stayed home and had some special time with Grandpa and Grandma while he recovers from Mono). Just as the pool was closing Luella woke up a little bit and with eyes just barely open she pointed at the water and said "wimming". Poor babe!! The sweet staff at the aquatics center gave us free passes to try it again another time. They were also sad Luella didn't get to swim.

Luella was pretty much back to normal when we got home and she took her two little rubber ducks in the bathtub with her! We'll have to see how it goes the next time....
