First I had them back when I was about 2-3 yrs old. Back then they thought that was sizure related. So I did a tons of eegs. I called it curling my hair. My curls came through great when I had them...
Fast forward from the 70's to TODAY!!!
My daughter 3 at the time. Had a fever related sizure. I noticed she had a fever. I went to drive to my mother in law's house across town. I had the motrin there. She went from sitting on the couch. To unresponsive and eyes rolled up in the head staring. My husband picked her up. Put the top of her head under a tap of cold water. To try to get her to respond. I was home within 5 min of the start.
He ran out with her in a blanket. And kept her in his arms. Due to the fact that she was in her birthday suit. I drove to the hospital (3 min away)
They rushed her in. They still couldn't get her awake or responsive.
They had called her pediatrician from the local children's hospital. The children's hospital dispatched an ambulance. It took them 20 min to get there.
In the mean time the hospital she was in. *totally rural hospital* was going to do a spinal tap on our baby. We are TERRIFIED. Just when they opened everything. The ambulance called said 5 min away. They said we are doing a spinal tap.
The drivers said.................
NO if she needs one we will give her one when we get her to Akron Ohio.
She spent the night. She loved playing with everything. She had woke up on the way to the children's hospital.
My daughter is now 10 1/2. She had NO PROBLEMS.
The pediatrician nurses HATE me. If she hits 100 F. I have her and her brother/sister in the ER. They are like not till the fever hits 104 F.I tell them it not happening.
But I do this to keep down the fevers
We start with a dose of Motrin
Then 2-3 hours later
they are given a dose of tylenol
Keep doing it till it goes away.
Just let the doctor know what happened.
FYI Girls have them more often....or boy that are red headed............i got 2 blond girls and a RED headed boy
