Go away seizure monster!
Increased seizure activity in my little snopple chops this past week :-( Culminated in two fits requiring buccal, one on Wednesday afternoon and one on Thursday morning. Don't think she recovered properly from the seizure on Wednesday afternoon to be honest, which may be why Thursday's fit happened. A perkier girl Friday, then back to being floppy and uninterested in anything on Saturday. This prompted a little visit to the local Children's Ward, to which we have open access (meaning I don't have to go through A and E , I just call up, say we're coming and we turn up. It's an absolute godsend). Luckily the ward was quiet and the lovely Nurse and Doc saw us strait away. I just wanted to get her checked. It's not as though I am a fussy Mum, when you consider her problems. I usually know when something is wrong and we not been to the ward since May, so I felt ok about taking her in and asking them to check her over. They found nothing untoward. I concluded with the agreement of doc that the most likely explanation is teething, which dogs poor Elin to death as she cannot chew anything or put anything in her mouth to relieve it. Lots of tears and crying at bedtime, which hardly ever happens. The sound of Elin crying rips my heart out. So its a good job we had a stockpile of calpol and nurofen!! I felt so bad for her and so frustrated that she cant tell us or show us what's wrong. Lo and behold this morning, in a regular inspection of her gums with my fingers ( a dangerous business) I discovered a tiny bit of a back tooth poking through which hadn't been there before. I knew it!!! Lets hope that explains the increase in seizures, as it so often does, and lets hope the rest of the pesky teeth cut soon! I hope the seizure monster leaves us alone for a bit and goes to visit someone else now!!
