Rough Thursday

Yesterday, Mira had one of those days - tons of seizures and full of dystonia. She started off the morning by having a fairly intense seizure, which didn't quite evolve into a full blown tonic-clonic, but we could tell something was brewing. She managed to to drink one bottle before going back in her bed, but soon after that, things went downhill. She had 3 involved tonic-clonics, each about an hour apart, then became extremely distant and unresponsive, complete with clammy hands and feet - a very typical bout of dystonia for her. Sarah ended up giving her a round of Diastat later in the afternoon, after her third tonic-clonic, in order to break the cycle. The Diastat worked, as it ultimately stopped the seizures she was having consistently every hour prior. She ended up being out of it the rest of the afternoon, not managing to eat much until bedtime, where she finished 2 bottles, very slowly. By this morning, she had rebounded very well and had a enormous appetite after not eating much at all yesterday. She has been sleepy most of the day, which is expected, after such a rough day yesterday.
