Video monitor and peace of mind
Our homoeopath has been in contact with us getting updates on Asher's epilepsy even though she is away on holiday overseas. Asher had a small vacant "episode" on Monday 30th with eyes pulling to the side again. So we were wondering if it would be a precursor to another grand mal (which has happened with the others) and it has made me more watchful of her. She had more of her remedy after the episode and so far things have been quiet (and this is still the case as I write this on 22 October - over 6 weeks of no seizures - PRAISE THE LORD!!!!).
The homoeopath has been such a blessing to us and cares so much. She always asks how I am doing and I was honest with her and told her that it's hard to know how to handle nap times as I don't want Asher to be on her own if she has another seizure. Both the grand mal seizures were during her sleep time - so it may be likely that would be the time it would happen again.
She suggested a video monitor. I had not even though about that and was pleased to see they were not too expensive (not anything as much as I thought they would be). And the delivery was so quick that it arrived on Friday. Asher will take a couple of days to get used to having this funny flower above her bed - but it has already given me so much peace of mind. Now I can check on her as often as I like without coming to the room.

She is getting herself into a sitting position now though - so we will have to move the cot's mattress to it's lower position soon.
