I knew as soon as I went on record saying Mira hasn't had any visible major seizures, she erupted yesterday and had a ton of them. She started off in the morning in a very quiet mmod, having some strange movements, but I didn't think much of it. So we decided to make a run to Costco. By the time we got into the store, she started having a string of seizures, similar to what she was having at school at the end of last month. She went slowly rigid, with her arms and legs extended for a solid 20-30 seconds, then slowly relaxed and went limp, then about a minute or two later, would repeat the cycle. She did this about 10-12 times in a row. We have seen this activity quite a bit over the past year, so it wasn't anything out of the ordinary, unfortunately. Her breathing isn't stalled or interrupted, but they are seizures nonetheless. We were home within 30 minutes, where she stopped doing having them, but would later have some isolated seizures like this throughout the day. We were outside much of the day yesterday, either walking or in the park, where she had a few episodes. She continued to have a few more today, but nothing to the extent that she did yesterday - maybe 3 or 4 random ones. All of this activity has been making her very drowsy. She is sitting next to me now, dozing off and on in her chair, watching the Royals try to redeem themselves after their 8-3 loss to the Orioles last night.
