More Big Seizures

Mira continues to be fairly quiet and reserved these days, for a reason. She woke up this morning and had a big tonic-clonic seizure right when I put her into her chair. Not a great way to start off the day. Despite the seizure, she was apparently all smiles at school this morning, up until about lunch time. She was very sleepy this afternoon and wasn't too happy about getting in her walker at school.

This afternoon, she took a nap and woke up a little fussy, which ironically, led into another big tonic-clonic before dinner. She then had yet another one after her bath. I'm not sure what the trigger (if any) was for her, but it felt like her toy wasn't helping, so we had to keep it from her after the second seizure. The obvious reason for her quiet demeanor the past few days is all of the seizure activity and spending much of her day in a postictal state.

She was completely worn out after today, not wanting to eat much before bed.
