More update on possible Seizures
Today we spent a good part of the afternoon in the ER at Children's Hospital in Seattle. Caitlyn got to be transported via ambulance after having multiple episodes that the doctor said were probably seizures. Caitlyn was a trooper at the hospital. Happy most of the time. She even got overly excited when the nurse was getting ready to draw her blood, and left a nice little bite mark on my hand. The doctors consulted with neurology, and neurology felt that since we already had an EEG scheduled for May 31st, we'd be ok to wait. They gave a script for a seizure medication, and off we went. They did say if she has any more seizures to come back. Caitlyn's smile is what helped me get through the day. Thanks to Kelli and Jaymes for hanging out at the hospital with us. Caitlyn is doing better now...Took her new medicine like a champ, and fell fast asleep. Keep us in your thoughts.
