Seizure last night, praying for safe travels tomorrow

Luella made it just over a week since her last seizure. Last night (Saturday) right before supper she was walking through the kitchen and fell when she started to have a seizure. Jim and I were both nearby but we didn't see the seizure start so we couldn't help her avoid a fall. It's very difficult to always have a set of eyes on her. She did bump her head and it was a little red last night but no goose eggs and even the redness was gone this morning. This was a full body, tonic clonic seizure again but thankfully only one dose of midazolam stopped the seizure. She did sleep for quite awhile and then just wanted to be held. She ate her supper only 1 1/2 hours later and then enjoyed a nice bath. We are so thankful she comes out of these seizures so well! This morning she was especially full of energy and enjoyed seeing so many people at church!

Tomorrow we head up to St. Paul to Gillette Children's for Luella to see her neurologist again. This is just a routine follow up appointment. We see Dr. Wical about every 3-6 months. It will be a long day of full of mostly driving so we are praying for clear roads and safe travel. This will be our first time having Luella eat away from home since she started the GAPS diet. I have all of her meals ready to pack up in the morning. I'm hoping she handles eating out okay when she has her own "special" food.

Here's a cute picture from last night. After Luella has a seizure she often gets the chills. We covered her up in a cozy blanket and Sophie helped keep Luella cozy too! (You might have to look twice, she almost blends in with the blanket!)
