  • I have known one. My nephew. At my house. It scared the crap out of all of us and he ended up in the ER.

  • I have known 2 children. It isn't as bad as it looks like it's actually pretty common in young children. That doesn't make it any less scary though.

  • From what I understand I had them pretty regularly until I was about 2 years old, then they stopped. My mom wrote about them in my baby journal and they sounded scary. I guess I ended up at the hospital a couple times in tubs of ice or being rubbed down with alcohol to bring the fever down.
