Well I thought we have been doing great since April. Today Dakota had a couple small seizures.
Dakota has picked up some stomach bug. He was pretty pale earlier and after the small seizures he was laying down a whole lot more. I thought he was starting to feel better around 4:30 as he was asking me to make Mac and Cheese for dinner.
Well I made dinner and he loves my homemade buns and rolls. He loves his mac and cheese too. Well I put the mac and cheese in a bowl and he didn’t want to eat it. Offered him a roll and he didn’t want to eat it. Said his stomach was starting to hurt again and is now laying on the couch.
Well Monday night I left to head down to Milwaukee the night before our Neurologist appointment. We stayed with my aunt and uncle for a couple days. We had a really awesome time. On our way down we saw three rainbows. Dakota used my iphone to catch the pictures.
The weather there was gorgeous too. On Tuesday afternoon we spent time outside. Brittany blew bubbles and we tried to fly one of her little kites that she got for Christmas but there wasn’t enough wind.
Last night I had such a bad feeling. I thought about the events of the day and I was starting to get really concerned. Dakota hasn’t had a grand mal seizure in a few years.
Now Dakota takes meds also for ADHD. When he doesn’t get these meds he is normally hyper. Saturday I had one of the 4 pills left. I gave it to him. However, my point is this. Dakota was ALREADY calm before I gave it to him. He had all his meds Friday. Sunday we didn’t have the ADHD meds and he was more low key again. Monday is what concerned me.
Hi All! I hope that you all had a wonderful Holiday. It’s been a crazy couple weeks with getting ready for Christmas. My daughter also got sick and the day she started getting better Dakota started having seizures. Needless to say I am not to happy with the neurologist so I am getting a new for another opinion. I guess that’s the side of me that when I don’t like what I hear I seek out until I am satisfied. See the only thing different this time is that I was not the only one who noticed what was going on. Even my neighbors noticed which makes me more determined because I know I wasn’t seeing things. LOL Dakota is doing very well though.
Well I am really far behind in what I wanted to accomplish today so most of it will have to wait until the weekend. This morning I was holding my daughter and she had a small seizure in my arms. Her head went back and her eyes rolled backwards. I pinched her finger like the neurologist suggested with DJ to see if I would get a response. No response. It didn’t last long. I didn’t have any bright lights on or curtains open this morning. When she came too she squeezed her eyes shut. Then within 5 minutes she was sleeping. She didn’t sleep to long.
