Quoting April ♥ 37wks:
It has happened to my daughter Mya a couple of times in her short life. The first was at a week old. I thought we would lose her. :(i did CPR and I took her to my neighbor because she was so much older then me and had more kids+ experience. I still remember collapsing in the floor screaming help my baby, and just waiting for the unimaginable because the seizure wouldn't let up. We were too far out for an ambulance. I will never understand how she lived and the hospital can't explain it. She is a strong little girl who has dealt with constant bronchitis and allergies that are now letting up as she gets older. She has gone thru Hand, Foot, and Mouth and an overnight stay at the hospital of IVs, and meds because the infection was spreading. She is a fighter. <3
She's almost three and had one more a couple of months ago, and thank goodness for my husband who helped me thru it without freaking out. They don't seem to have any adverse effect on her, and thank goodness for that but they are SCARY! I have questioned the dr. who says it's a febrile seizure but if she ever has another then I'm pushing for scans.
My daughter had them because of a reaction to a vaccine. She had the phemonia vaccine right before she was one year old and her immune system couldn't handle it. She went from being well to seriously ill.
We coslept with her and I woke up to her having a seizure. We called 911 and when she had a second one later on we took her ourselves to the emergency room. They took blood from her, ran tests on her, stuck a cathatar in her little body. The doctor there said it was from an ear infection, which she wouldn't have gotten had her body not been messed up by the vaccine.
We've never given her that vaccine again. I also don't do flu shots either. Since they are for the previous season's strain, it really doesn't do any good, in my opinion.
But like the other moms whose kids have had them, my heart races everytime she gets sick. My adrenaline pumps and a part of me freaks out until she gets better. I'm always a little afraid of losing her now.
She only got them after those vaccines. She had her regular vaccines and then the optional pneumonia one. My husband had taken her that doctor's visit and didn't ask what they were giving her. Otherwise we wouldn't have let her have that many vaccines at once.
I think if we get them the individual vaccines, not all together, and seperate them, so the kids have a chance to heal after each one, then vaccines would be a lot safer.
She's never had them again. Just that one day.
wow i just read this, thanks Sheila

My LO had her first fever without a seizzure (she is 2) = ) I was wondering if any of your LO's either consecutively had the seizures with every fever or can they space themselves out?
I don't want to go throw that again and I'm hoping this means she is growing out of them!
