We've been having such a fun time counting Luella's seizure free days... today she made it to 174 days and that's where we stop this time. Shortly after reading "Silverlicious", saying bedtime prayers with Luella asking God once again to take her "seizures away forever", singing bedtime songs and hugs and kisses... she had a seizure.
Luella has had a cold. I thought she was getting a little better but was hit with some chest congestion and now a cough today. She didn't feel hot at bedtime but did have a fever of 101 after her seizure. Thankfully the seizure stopped all on its own tonight without any meds - not common for a bedtime seizure so we are thankful for that. She immediately went into her shivering - which she does after almost every seizure. I asked her if she was cold and she replied "Yeah" - another thing she doesn't often do after a seizure. I gave her some ibuprofen and hopefully she doesn't spike another fever during the night. I snuggled a bit then left her to sleep. Then I shed my tears.... I will have to tell her tomorrow that she had a seizure.
But... we are grateful for 174 days. That was the longest EVER! And we'll look forward to the next big long run and hopefully that starts tomorrow!
