I Wanted So Badly To Be Wrong

Of all the times I have wanted to be right, this just wasn't one of them. Anna had one staring episode yesterday but I was not sure if it amounted to anything so I wasn't too worried. Then today we were in the car and I noticed she just looked really sleepy. It wasn't a normal sleepy look, there was just something different in her eyes. We went into McDonald's and Carly and her friends were off playing and I was holding Anna and waiting in line to order. She started staring off into space and kind of twirling her hair and then she started convulsing. It only lasted about 10 seconds but it felt like an eternity. After that, she was fine. There is no more denying it. Anna is having seizures. I called and talked to the Neuro's office again and the nurse called me back quickly. She told me to continue the EEG plans for tomorrow and she will call me back in a little bit with further instructions. I will update when I hear from her.


  1. I'm so sorry, I hoped you were wrong too! I guess one small positive is that the EEG is so soon. I hope it goes well and it's easy to treat with meds.

  2. I'm really sorry to hear this, but I am going to remain confident/hopeful that this is something they will be able to fix easily.
