Brannon had a neurological appoinment last week. We had taken him off his seizure medication in February...a good thing. We took him to his EEG appointment today.
Appointment in Minneapolis...about 45 minutes away. Started out a little late. Picked up Kelly from work. I got a ticket for speeding. I am premenstrual and started to cry after highway patol gave me my ticket. They wear stoopid hats.
Kelly took Brannon in to appointment. I sat in car until Kelly came out to check on me and asked me to come in.
Good thing I came in. Good thing Kelly was there with me.
Brannon had all the little things attached to his head. The strobe light section was cool. He did great. Then he had to blow a pinwheel for about 1 minute. He did great. He was not hyperventillating. He was just sitting there...like he was supposed to.
Then he had a seizure.
It is awful watching your child go through that. He had spitty foam coming out of his mouth on one side and a little bit of blood on the other. He must have bit down on one of his front teeth that is was bleeding a bit and is loose.
But they got in on the computer and on video. He is on a new medication.
At least he had the seizure at the office, hooked up to all those machines. At least he wasn't at schools or someplace where he might have been embarrassed and freaked people out...besides him mom and dad.
He is too big to snuggle on my lap, but that is what I wanted to do.
He can't remember much of what happened before the seizure.
Earlier today in one of his classes he got bored and made blue marker dot patterns all of his left hand. After the seizure, he looked at it and got a really confused look and said, "What the heck?" He did not know where he was for a while. He didn't know the month. But later he could answer questions like: who is the president? where do you live?
I am very emotionally drained and still want to cry. I cried during his seizure. Kelly was very strong.
