More Seizures

Mira did not have a good last day at school yesterday. She ended up having a lot of episodes - multiple seizures within a short period of time, similar to the seizures she has been having every few weeks. It started when she first arrived at school and both the teacher and paras noticed she was off. Moments later, she erupted into a string of seizures. The cycle stopped after about 20 minutes, again, similar to what she has had in the past. Fortunately, it was only a half-day and the seizures/movements subsided within a short period of time. Today marked the official first day of summer and it started off with Mira having to go this morning to get her stitches out from her biopsy. She had the first appointment of the day, with the rain still going, after pouring all day yesterday. Mira was soaked by the time we got inside, not so much from the rain, but from wiggling in her car seat, which rearranged her diaper, which caused it to leak, which in turn, soaked her and the car seat both. Her stitches came out relatively easy, except for the last one, which was very tight. I changed her in the room afterward, went back outside in the rain, back into the wet car seat (as I had no towel to put down to protect her) and went back home. Then changed her into her third pair of pants, all before 9:00am. She would go through 2 more pairs of pants by the end of the day, all from wiggling so much. She just has days where she wants to see how many pairs she can go through in a day.
