Hollywood Promises To Talk About It!
Is anyone else dealing with this situation? My daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy 8 months ago. All the seizures we know about have happened while she was sleeping. My husband woke up one morning when she was in our bed, and saw her seizing. She had another one later that day in the hospital, also when she was asleep. A few weeks ago, she had another seizure in the middle of the night. Her movements woke me, but only because I was tuned in to her and not very soundly asleep.
Looking back, I have questions. My daughter wet the bed until she was about 5 1/2, and never woke up when she did it...could she have been having seizures that whole time and nobody knew it? How many seizure might we have missed over the years?
I don't know how we will every feel comfortable letting her sleep alone again. Is there any type of monitor that can let us know if she is having a seizure? I have had a couple friends suggest a service animal that could alert us. Has anyone heard of this? Any ideas where I get information about it, or put my daughter on the list to get one?
