A longer weird seizure tonight

I really want to be posting that Luella is heading in the other direction with her seizures!! :( She had yet another one tonight - the 2nd this week again. I had just gotten supper ready and the kids were getting washed up. Jim was with Luella and she kind of put her hands to her head and grunted or something. She wasn't responding normally so he brought her to the living room and I grabbed the midazolam. She was semi-conscience and when I got the midazolam ready she hit it away from her. Before I even gave her the midazolam she seemed to be coming around a little but she couldn't stand on her own. She said she wanted supper and Jim took her to wash hands. When they came into the kitchen she started crying and her eyes were going up to the right and then she didn't respond at all to us, just kept crying. I had to give her two doses of midazolam to stop the seizure. Lately her seizures have had a fairly quick recovery time but tonight she slept for over two hours and then was still really sleepy and not herself. She kept crying and saying her tummy hurt. I was able to get her to eat a little bit and then she was asking to go to bed again.

We rocked downstairs a little bit after supper and she settled down. I told her she had another seizure and asked her how the seizure felt. In a sad little meek voice she replied, "Seizure feels bad." Poor little thing!! I absolutely HATE that she has to suffer through these seizures. I wish I could just take them from her!

Luella's third birthday is Sunday. Please pray that Sunday will be a fun day for her without any seizures. I want her to have a terrific birthday!
