Fever, frost and fun
Unfortunately she started with a cough today and at midnight had a 5 minute Tonic Clonic seizure. I also noticed she had a fever. So that was most likely the trigger for this seizures. It was rather disappointing for her to just go 4 days since the last seizure - but we know it's related to her being sick. We have her a dose of paracetamol and thankfully she didn't have more seizures through the night.
She was doing fine through Friday too, but at 4:30pm she had a 2 minute Vacant seizure. I noticed that her temperature was up again, so we gave her more paracetamol to keep that down to try and stop more seizures coming.
It's such a contrast to me in how we have to handle any elevated temperature with Asher. With my other children I have always just carefully monitored a fever and kept it safe (ie - under 40) and allowed the fever to do what it's there doing (fighting the infection). It's so different with Asher.
Thankfully this was the last one of this group and she didn't have a fever again. The cold she picked up hung around for around a week, but thankfully didn't cause any more seizure activity.
I was glad I had a thick jersey, jacket and gloves as it was cold.
The photo below shows you how far he walked. He wanted to see how close he could get to it.
Hezekiah didn't want to go home yet, so we headed to the tea rooms to share a ice cream Sunday. He mainly enjoyed the mini marshmallows and chocolate sauce. Enough enjoyment though that he told Dad that he wants to go to the tea rooms next time too.
It was so funny though because Hezekiah kept trying to get as many monkeys as he could - rather than getting as few as possible.
