Heavy Seizures

I seem to have a habit of jinxing things - in my last post, I mentioned that Mira had not had any tonic-clonics all week. Well, the streak ended yesterday, when she had a big seizure when she was waking up from a nap in the middle of the afternoon. She did the exact same thing today - another intense tonic-clonic after waking up from a nap, at nearly the same time. The seizure today completely knocked her out, right before we were ready to head out to the door for a graduation party. We waited it out for a while before we walked out the door, but Mira continued to be pretty floppy and lethargic in the car. She eventually started to perk up at the party - I think being out in the sunshine and wind helped bring her around some. Her legs were extended the entire time and her hands and feet were slightly clammy. She was still reserved and rigid when we were back at the house and she ended up going to bed earlier than usual.
