Oh crud oh crud oh crud. Something is going on with my 2 year old and we don’t know what it is. Around midnight on Sunday she was crying a little bit and then I heard a big <<thud>> and I knew she had fallen out of bed. When I went in to pick her up I noticed that she was moving funny. Like she was twitching all over her body. Her head, her arms, her fingers were all twitching like you see someone with Tourrette’s or something like that. It lasted only for about a minute and then she went back to sleep immediately and seemed okay. I watched her all night and didn’t notice anymore twitches. The next morning she was sitting on my lap and I noticed that she was twitching again, but it was barely noticeable. If I hadn’t been looking for it, I doubt I would have even noticed, but there it was. That episode only lasted for a little bit and then she was up playing and in a good mood and seemed fine. My doctor’s office was closed that day, so I decided to just keep and eye on her and see what happened. Well, she was fine until today. My husband called me about 9 and said she was doing it again. This is 5 days later, so I know something is wrong. We took her to the doctor and he said it sounds like she may be having small seizures, so he wants us to take her to a Pediatric Neurologist to have her thoroughly checked out. A PEDIATRIC NEUROLOGIST!!!! I don’t mind telling you I am more than a little freaked out. The worst thing I’ve ever dealt with was a bad case of strep in my middle child – what if this is something serious?? God please don’t let it be a tumor, please please please don’t let it be something terribly serious.
My doctor is going to call me with the name of a PN and then I’ll call and make the appointment. I’m sure I’ll have more to post about this in the future, but in the meantime could you all please say a prayer for my daughter? I would be very grateful.
