She Took a Tumble

Luella had another seizure tonight. She had been running and playing with Ryker after supper. Jim told Ryker to do something calmer with Luella so they started to play Legos. Luella was standing on the bench at our dining room table digging in the big Lego box that was on the table. She started having a seizure and fell all the way to the floor pulling the huge box of Legos all over her. I had been getting groceries and just walked in the door as Jim was running to get Luella's meds. There were Legos everywhere!! I wasn't sure what had happened! Thankfully the seizure stopped quickly with one dose of midazolam. Luella scraped her tummy during the fall. We couldn't find any lumps on her head so hopefully she didn't hit too hard. She slept a little bit and woke up enough to get ready for bed and read a book. When I asked her if she had any bumps or if it hurt anywhere she said "no" but she was pretty cranky. I hope she'll be feeling back to normal in the morning.

I hate that we don't have any warning when a seizure is about to happen. I hope that eventually Luella will be able to sense something different so we can be prepared. I get so nervous about her climbing on things. I feel like a VERY over-protective mom. I don't like her to sit on our tall kitchen stools or go up or down the stairs alone... we just never know.

The diet is still going well. We are a little discouraged that we haven't seen an improvement in her seizures yet, but we'll keep at it!

Please pray for the diet and for protection for Luella when she has a seizure. Thanks everyone!

  1. I hear ya about feeling overprotective. Sometimes I wonder what people think when Ben is walking and I have my hands out on either side of him as I walk behind him...just in case he falls. But, it doesn't matter what they think, it just matters that we are doing what is best for our kiddos right? :)
