Sad day

I am having a HORRIBLE day! I am struggling with figuring out whether or not the little girl in front of me is really her or a mirage. I am praying that the demon who has invaded my baby is just a side effect of the seizure medicine and not a guest who is here to stay. She is completely spastic, hyperventilating, anxious, stressed, clumsy and all around CRAZY!

She is currently sitting in her bumbo, blowing raspberries WHILE hyperventing, watching ELMO. This was a last resort...I'm at a loss, putting her to bed is not going to happen anytime soon--she almost seems possessed...pupils huge, shaking, unable to be held, arching, thrashing....

I'm so sorry. Times like these are the WORST. Maybe it just takes some time for her to get used to her new medication?

Carrie, I know wer chatted on the phone but I wanted to post here too, I agree you are a WONDERFUL mommy. Our girls are very tough to figure out sometime. I am glad you heard back from the neruologist and I am praying it was just a reaction to her medicine. We love you!!!

Carrie,
How bad are her seizures and how long has she been having them? I know a Rett mom who's doc put her angel on it after one possible seizure. Her angel went nutso so she took her off. She was back to herself in a day and hasn't had a seizure since. I'd call the doc and tell them. Not every med is right honey. Love you!
