|Praying for Callie|
Callie went to the pediatric neurologist on Friday.. She has Juvenile Epsilepsy
It is not the kind , that she will out grow. She will have to take meds
the rest of her life. They have started her on these. and will work to
get them regulated. She is still having seizures at night. She has 3 types
of seizures. They are:
1- The convulsive type- which is the bad ones. like she had last Thursday, when she
quit breathing and required CPR.
2- Myoclonic Seizures- this is where she has the jerking/spasm on the right
side of her body.
3-small seizures [during her wake hours]. that only last 8-10 seconds. The doctor
said. she nor anyone else would notice it. But, she is doing this so much,
and has been for a long time. that is why she is always so tired, and needs
We are very sad, that she has to deal with this , for the rest of her life. But, are
so thankful , that it is treatable with medicine. We know, the outcome,
could have been so much worse.
I want to say a special thank you to all my blog friends. I thank you so much
for all your prayers and thoughts. May God bless each of you.
ps.. went by to see her after church.. she is still sleeping a lot, and not
feeling well.. Hope the medicine gets regulated, and she feels better soon.
