Kate: Seizure Patterns

Kate has been awake the last two nights with seizures and this morning they intensified in frequency and severity. When she is awake over night it is typically for several hours between 11pm and 5 pm. Last night she went back to sleep after receiving the Clonazipam to break the seizure cycle.

We clobbered her with the “rescue” medicine this morning again to break the recurring cycle.

She was so upset about missing school today, I promised her if she went one hour without any seizures I would bring her to school.

The rescue med is a heavy neuro sedative,

now she is a happy little “drunk” 4th grader

We were so lucky to see a friendly face first thing at Muldown Elementary and be greeted with some silliness to start the day. Thank you Christina, you are an all star.
