A Bad Febrile Seizure - Back to Cooks ER


I'm not sure how many times Jessie has been in an ambulance now, but I know that it is too many for a 5 year-old.

Jessie was running a high fever (103+) (turned out to be a UI infection), and it triggered a bad seziure. It was kinda Complex Partial, and kinda Tonic Clonic on the left side. UGLY Seizure. Diastat (her rescue medicine) didn't work, and so we called 911. Luckily, she went post-ictal about the time that they got to our that seizure went about 20 minutes.

She spent the night in Cooks for observation and we went home the next day. Our great neighbors Joe, Cass, and their kids watched the boys until my Mom could get over to take care of everything.
