of Jake's hospital stay, things got real bad.
At about 3:30 am, I heard a gasp over the baby monitor (apparently I conked out before I could get him and bring him to our bed). I ran to get Jake and , as I suspected, he was seizing.
No biggie, this happens.
about 20 minutes later, he seizes again.
I fumble around in the dark to find his magnet, but it stops before I can actually swipe his chest to stop the seizure.
About 15 minutes later, another seizure.
This pattern goes on for about a hour and half. Jake seizes, I swipe and turn to go back to sleep.
However, there was not much sleep being had last night.
Between 3:30 and 5:00 Jake had 7 or 8 tc's. Each one with growing intensity and length.
At about 5 after 5 when another one started, I made the executive decision to dust of the ole' Diastat box. I had no choice but to give Jake a good dose of the Valium like medicine to stop these damned seizures!
The Diastat did work and Jake drifted off to sleep like baby. He slept several hours past his normal rising time of 5:45 or 6:00.
There was no way I was leaving him today, so we both took a day off, if you can call it that.
The hospital stay tomorrow can NOT come soon enough.
I am so looking forward to getting up and making the drive, however TERRIFIED of what the night before then may bring.
If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to your
mountain, "MOVE!" and it WILL move... and NOTHING will be
impossible for YOU!
