DD came down with a fever on Tuesday. Naturally my heart sank. It's been 3 months since the last one. And 3 months since the last seizure.

She's never had a fever and NOT had a seizure.

Until now!

I think she was very close to having one when she first started with it. I got some Motrin into her real quickly and started with a wet wash cloth on her pressure points. Her eyes fluttered a few times but she never lost conciousness and her breathing remained normal. The highest it got was 101.8 which is quite different from her others. They all hovered around 102.8 and would usually peak at 103.5. So fingers crossed that we made it past the age of febrile seizures!

Tomorrow is her birthday too so this is the best gift we could have ever received!

YAY!!!! That is so exciting. I have been wondering about you ever since your FB post. Maybe she is finally starting to out grow it or the medicine is really working. Either way, GREAT news
