Just when I thought I was on the mend...

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

Last night was scary for my family and I. Out of the blue, I had a grand mal seizure while sitting in my recliner. DH ended up calling 911 and the paramedics came. I have absolutely no memory of the seizure activity. I do remember the paramedics being here. The seizure lasted about 30 minutes. DH took me to the emergency room. While waiting to get into a room, I had another seizure. Again, I have no memory of it. I did get sick and had a pretty severe headache. The doctor started me on a new anti-seizure med that DH will get the prescription filled this morning. I also need to get an appointment with the neurologist within the next two weeks.

So, another six months without driving, not until March 28, 2010, assuming I have no more additional seizures. If you are a praying person, I covet your prayers.
