Consistent Tonic-Clonics

Mira has been having a consistent number of intense tonic-clonic seizures for the past 3 days. Friday she had one, another 2 on Saturday and then one already this morning. Overall, it is a pretty constant cycle - a couple days off with none, then 3 or 4 days of having at least one a day. Before and after the seizure, her hands and feet are very clammy, yet cold at the same time.

She woke up this morning having only a few myoclonics in her bed, but with her cold and damp feet, it seemed inevitable that she was going to have some sort of intense seizure. Sure enough, after about 15 minutes of being up, she had a myoclonic that slowly unfolded into one.

Yesterday we were out and about, running some errands, which Mira seemed to enjoy. We also went to the park and were able to get in the swing late in the afternoon, but Mira was very drowsy and not feeling up for it. We went back inside and she had another big tonic-clonic.

I can't wait to open the windows and air out the house, since it supposed to be in the upper 60's this afternoon. It feels as though with the stomach viruses floating around for the past two weeks and not wanting to completely vacate, perhaps airing and forcing it out (psychologically if anything) will do some good.

Hope everyone has a nice Easter!
