Multiple Types Suck Even More

>> Wednesday, June 9, 2010

3 events. Well 4 actually.

First was Tonic/Clonic and the second Tonic. He had a drop seizure earlier in the day, Mom said it was't bad but it was horrible. Those drops...suck more than most. He is bruised on his arm this morning because of it. That poor arm is all beat up. For some reason he hits his right arm on 'something' on the way down.

This morning he had the third (4th since we count the drop). It was a full T/C and it took him almost 30 minutes to recover from it. He was shaking and holding his breath. I wrapped him up in three blankets until he wanted to get up.

He went into the great room and played for a few minutes before he had an absence that turned into something really odd. He was seizing, because he was rhythmically contracting BUT he was able to stand up and walk toward me. He was fighting it and I thought we were going to the ER.

He cuddled with me for almost an hour, holding his head and tugging his ears...then he just sat up and started playing.

I wish he could tell us what was going on but he can't so we guess. We gave him his morning medication and 400mg of Ibuprofen, just in case he has a headache. Sigh.

So in the last 24 hours he has had 4 maybe, 5 types of seizures. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? It can't be good. Yes, he is sick, but he has NEVER had all these different types at once before.
