My baby...

I think she just had a seizure. She's acting like nothing's wrong now, but I have a call into the doctor. Please pray...not just for her health, but we're still paying the doctor back for her accident last fall ($150 left). I'd have her in the van on the way to the doctor's office this minute if it wasn't for that bill -- I feel like I should wait for a telephone consultation with the nurse to confirm that it really was a seizure before I take her in.


UPDATE:We took her in. She was running around, laughing, teasing the nurse, playing hide and sink, trying to spin around on the doctor's chair...

They're dubious it was a seizure because of how quickly she bounced back (a minute or less of fogginess and then right back to it). Also, I guess there are two kinds of seizures and she had two symptoms of one kind and two symptoms of the other, but not enough of either kind to say that's it. They suggested she might have been choking, but she wasn't eating anything choke-able, just dipping her finger in frosting & licking it (the kids were frosting Easter cookies with cousin M). So the diagnosis is: no diagnosis.

We're just supposed to watch her and wait.


  • Sparki...go. Please. Don't worry about the $150...God will provide. We have experience with infant seizures and it's nothing to trifle with. Please go...and get ahold me if/when you can. Until then we will be praying for you all.

  • Oh darlin, I'm so sorry you are living with this fright. If it is some kind of epilepsy, though, it's good to catch it early so you can find a way to prevent more seizures. And odds are though, like most kid things, it's just a random weirdness that is unexplained and never repeated.

  • Prayers! Hope to read that you've had reassuring news, when you get the time to post.

  • I used to scare the hell out of my wife with what the doctor called "fainting spells". They looke scary but no lasting damage. My own daughter is prone to the same thing. Here's hoping that's all it is for yours. And the reason I stopped by: Happy Easter.

  • I'm a little late on this but you and your daughter have my prayers. I had seizures when I was younger. They stink! Hope everything is okay. :)
