Seizure at Church

Luella had a seizure at church yesterday. We were visiting afterwards and she was running around a little bit playing. She ran over to the corner and let out a little scream then fell backwards to the floor. She was standing by a metal door and hit that also as she fell. It sound like a big bang. She did have a red mark on the back of her head, it looked more like rug-burn. I saw her fall and I think it sounded worse than it was.

This was a tonic-clonic seizure (whole body). She did bite her tongue again but she's been eating okay so it wasn't too bad. It seemed like it lasted a long time, but it stopped after only 4 minutes with a single dose of midazolam. She was OUT for almost 2 hours after that. She woke up, ate a little lunch then right back down for a nap. After her nap it was as if nothing happened in the morning. I love that she can come back from these seizures so quickly. I know other kiddos can sometimes take weeks to get back to "normal" with speech, balance, mood, etc...

Luella's seizures seem to be coming more frequently again as she's had 3 in about 10 days. We are still staying solid on the GAPS diet in hopes that things will improve soon! Please pray that we can go longer and longer between seizures! We appreciate all your support!
