Seizure stopped and now we wait

Brayden seemed to come out of the seizure a little after 10:30 p.m. It lasted almost 8 hours.

He was admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Children's at 11:30 p.m. He and Jeremy attempted to catch a couple of hours of sleep, without much success.

I am hanging with him today in the PICU. It looks like he might be moved to the neurology wing this evening.

The bloodwork is starting to come back and looks fine. His white blood cell count might have been high because of all the medications but I am not sure about that.

Today, Brayden is either in a deep sleep or awake and miserable/inconsolable. Sleeping is good. His vitals are still good and no respiratory problems. No idea what caused such a bad seizure or the ramifications of it.

There may be more blood work, EEG, starting him back to his regular feeds and waiting around for the doctors to decide a game plan.

Sure glad to hear the seizure finally stopped, so scary. We will be praying that the docs can figure out why the seizure happened and how to keep it from happening again. Hugs

Praise God that the seizure has stopped! I have been thinking about Brayden all day - wondering how he was doing. I will continue to pray for wisdom for the doctors, sleep for Brayden and peace and comfort for you and your family. And for answers!
