I'm electrifying!

I love to keep my parents on their toes! Last Wednesday I had some type of seizure. Yeah, scary, right? Well at this point we're not exactly sure what happened. I won't get into details, but let's just say I scared the bejesus out of my mom and pop. An ambulance even came to my house with lights a blazin'. BUT by the time they got there, I was feeling like myself again. My pediatrician is OFF on Wednesdays... as luck would have it! BUT, my nana is a nurse for a great doc and she pulled some strings and got me in mucho fast. The doc said that I should go to the ER and have some tests done, so I did. This part was NOT FUN! I had some vampire people who came and stole some blood from me. Don't think I didn't put up a fight, because believe me I sure did. I lost that battle though. Next, I was to get a CT scan. The nice people tried first with no sedation, ha, yeah right! So of course they ended up giving me some versed. But they just don't know me or my super high energy level! I did get a tad bit sleepy, but never knocked out. They were able to get the CT scan done (while daddy held me) nonetheless. The results came back from the blood-work and the CT scan and were all normal, so I was released (several hours after checking in). Today I'm going to have an EEG done, so we'll see how that goes. We're all hoping that it was a one-shot wonder, so please pray for that! We'll let ya know how the EEG goes. Have a great day!

Seizures are very scary to moms and dads! Hope you are okay and don't have any more!

No Sir!

I hope everything turns out okay, but no more of this ambulance business. Lights 'a Blazin' or not!

I love you and I'm glad you're feeling better!
