Say a Little Prayer for Her

If everyone out there could say a little prayer for Froggy today, that would be wonderful.

On Wednesday, she had what looked like four little seizures. Her eyes deviated to the right, and rolled upwards. It was around naptime and then bedtime, and I wasn't sure what I was seeing. We called our pediatrician and saw her yesterday. She said she wasn't sure. Froggy bumped her head last week, but it was so long ago and she never showed any signs of a concussion. They sent us to another hospital, where they took blood, checking her glucose, electrolytes, vitamin levels, liver, kidney, the whole nine yards. Most of the blood work came back, and it's all normal.

Last night, Froggy was restless. I put her in our bed and when I came in, she woke up, clenched her body tight, her arms shook and again her eyes went upwards. It lasted only a couple seconds, but I was really freaked out. We called our pediatrician to see if we should go to the E.R. She said to watch her through the night and we'd call a neurologist in the morning. And if she had another episode, to go to the E.R.

Today Froggy has been her normal self. She played with her best friend, and Daddy took her to the park while I called everyone in the entire world who has anything to do with medicine. It was a long, long, day. She didn't nap, and it's 9:30 and she's still awake. She fell asleep briefly on Froggydadda's chest, and that messed up bedtime. While rocking her a few minutes ago, her eyes deviated again, for a nano-second. I don't know what to do.

I'm too tired and emotionally drained to make sense of anything right now. Part of me wants to spend the 8 hours waiting to see an ER doc at Children's Hospital, but the other part of me is terrified Froggy will catch something worse from the sick kids in the waiting room. We have an appt. on Wednesday to see a neurologist, which in LA is not a bad wait. The neurologists at Children's Hospital have a six month waiting list.

On top of everything, two of Froggy's pharmacies screwed up her order and the meds that were supposed to be delivered today aren't coming. I really let one of the pharmacists have it. Don't mess with this Froggymama today.

If everyone would just concentrate on Froggy's little brain being healthy and normal, I would so appreciate it. I believe in the power of prayer and positive thought and this kid could use some today. Thank you.

Oh my God, honey! I had no idea. I am sending thoughts and prayers galore that FroggyBaby is fine. I can not even begin to imagine how you are feeling - I am so, so sorry and I wish that I was near so I could help you out - take some of the weight from you. Oh hon - I am so, so sorry....and worried.

Please update as you can. Big, big hugs to you. BIG ones.
