3 Seizures Over the Weekend

Luella went just over a week seizure-free but then ended up having two seizures on Saturday - one after breakfast and one in the afternoon while playing outside in the snow. The third one was Sunday night after supper. All three seizures were very short. They seemed to stop almost immediately after giving her midazolam. Saturday was kind of a crummy day for her though. Most of her seizures tend to be in the evening and she can just sleep off the effects of the seizure during the night. On Saturday after her morning seizure she was quite cranky and restless even when being held. After lunch and a nap, she was anxious to play in the snow but after only 10-15 minutes outside she had another seizure. After that second seizure she slept a couple hours and woke up feeling better.

Sunday night's seizure was around 7:00. She had been running and playing with the kids after supper. She fell with that seizure but thankfully didn't bump her head too hard. She slept a little bit and woke up in time to get ready for bed. She went right to sleep at bedtime.

Hopefully the rest of this week can be seizure-free now!! She is really excited about all this snow. Hopefully she won't have a seizure every time she tries to play in it!
