So far today, Jude's seizure toll is at ten. Several of them have been violent, and I am just at a loss. About four Emily, Jude, and I traveled to my friend Linda's house to pick up her dress for her big event in two weeks. While we were there Jude got very upset again, and we gave him some children's Motrin. He calmed down, but before he did he had a horrible breathing episode. It sounded like his lungs were filling with fluid, and I have to admit that I panicked. I took him outside so he could get the cool air into his lungs to open them up, and to hide how scared I was. I was on the verge of calling 911, but Jude soon starting coughing. Whatever was in his lungs quickly diminished, and he began breathing normally again. Emily, and I both calmed our fears, and went back inside. He then had not one, but two seizures. UGH! I felt terrible that my friends had to be exposed to Jude's struggles, and see how difficult seizures are. Linda's daughter is pregnant, and I knew this affected her greatly.
I am now watching Jude closely to make sure that he is not developing a lung infection. He is not running a temp, and he is not wheezing anymore. I am not sure what triggered all this, but I know my allergies are terrible, so maybe that's a factor. He is also still teething. All I know is that I was SCARED!
I have given him his Depakote for the night, and I am hoping that he goes to sleep soon, because I think he needs it. Also, mama needs a glass of wine, or a hot bath, because it's been a day for sure.
