Exhausting Seizure Day

With Mira dodging a day without having a TC, she made up for it today by having 3 of them. The first two were at school, one right before lunch and one afterward. The second one completely knocked her out. Her teacher said she was very lethargic and sleepy the rest of the day. To top it all off, she had a third one right before dinner. She recovered a little more quickly on the last siezure, but overall, she had a pretty rough day.

She was fairly irritable late this afternoon, before and after the seizure. She managed to drink about a bottle and a half, then I got her into the shower. After so many intense seizures today, her hands and feet were cold and clammy, even after the shower. In addition, she ended up in this defensive pose (see picture above) for the rest of the evening. In this pose, she brings her hands up to her sides, as though she doesn't want anyone near her and just has a blank look on her face. She ends up rigid and tense, making it difficult to get her changed and ready for bed.

After her shower, she went straight to bed and quickly fell asleep. It was an exhausting day for her, as all of the seizure activity today took its toll.
