Update on Froggy

I just spoke with the neurologist, because Froggy was having some more signs of a seizure. Her arm stuck out and she looked confused like she didn't know why her arm was sticking out. She's napping now, and while sleeping, her shoulder and arm jerks every minute or so.

I called her doc, who told us to page the neurologist to see if we should go to the ER. The neurologist said that it does sound like a seizure, but she doubts it is related to the fall from last week. She said that because the seizures are relatively short, that's a good sign. And we probably don't need to take her to the ER unless the seizures last more than a few minutes. If that happens, we'll call an ambulance.


Right now, I'm just pissed off and worried. This kid doesn't need anything more to deal with in life. Did you ever see that show on TLC about a woman who has seventeen kids? They are all healthy -not one with any problems. No autism, genetic disorders, learning disabilities, all bright, good looking kids. Not that I would wish anything on anyone else, but it does feel unfair. I don't believe in karma, or punishments from God, or the sins of the father, or anything. But every once in a while I think, "what else?" How much do you think we can really handle?

The good news is that Froggy is acting fine, she's her happy, funny self. And for that I'm thankful.

Mieke spread the word, and I want you to know that I am thinking about you all and sending thoughts for strength to you and for healing to Froggy. And, btw, thanks for the link to the Writer's Almanac, which I discovered only after moving east, and which is now my very favorite thing on the radio.
