I haven't been a member here for long, but I'm the single mom of 4 who takes her kids all over the country.... (AND I've posted a TON of messages here lol.) I just wanted to share something with you guys and ask for your prayers if you're the praying type. On Monday of this week my 12 year old son & I were standing in line in a store waiting our turn when he went unconscious and started seizing. He was taken to the ER but of course they couldn't give us any answers. Since then he's been to his primary care Dr, a neurologist, for CAT scans, blood work, MRI and tomorrow he has an EEG. The neuro said it's very uncommon for something major to cause seizures in kids, like tumors, anyurisms, etc., but of course they all need to be ruled out. So we're just waiting and praying like we've never prayed before. The amazing thing is that he was with me when it happened. He should have been in school but missed the bus that morning & didn't wake me up to take him to school like he would normally do. (I work at night and go to bed before he goes to school at 9am) When I went to run errands he went with me & he's usually the one who prefers to stay home. My 2 other kids who were at the house didn't even bat an eye when we went, my 8 year old usually doesn't leave my side but she was home sick & stayed home with my 15 year old. He should have been in school nearing the end of the day when this happened, or at home alone like he would normally be, and he wasn't. AND his little sister wasn't there to witness it. I can't get the images of the whole thing out of my head and I feel like I've aged 5 years in less than 3 days. Please just pray that it's "simple" epilepsy & not something drastic that will require any scary surgery. Thank you if you read this much!
