Let me start from the morning. My son woke up crying and seemed grumpy but I thought it was just because daddy wasn't home. I was without my phone because it had fallen in to the toilet the day before, so I used mapquest to get directions. We left the house and we went to Wal-mart and Target. When we were in Target myson fell asleep in the stroller. We had just finished getting checked out and putting everything into the car. I start the car and get ready to go home. We are at the stop light waiting for it to turn so that we can get on the road. I hear a very different scream then usual come from my son. I turn around to look at him. His hands were curled and he had gone stiff. I somehow knew tht it was a seizure because that was not normal. When the light turns green, I turn left and then make a U-turn and the turn right to get into the Target parking lot. I get out of the car scream for help and get my son out of the car and he is limp. Three ladies come over to see what is wrong. I ask if one can call 911 for me. My son is slowly becoming alert and fussy. The ambluance shows up shortly and they check him over. I had to call my husband to let him know what had happened and that I was riding with our son and leaving the car where it was.
My son and I get to the hospital and they get him checked in adn everything. My husband arrives and I tell him everything. They doctor runs blood and urine tests and everything came back negative for any real serious problems. Our son did however have a slight fever. We were told that it was normal for a toddler to have a seizure when they are sick. I was told to give him Tylenol and Motrin every 6 hours to bring down the fever. We were also told no play dates or day care or anything that involved playing with other kids since he is sick. I will probably check his temperature every day just so that I know whether it is a good idea to go out or start giving him Tylenol and Motrin. I am calling his doctor Monday even though I have an appopintment for him for his 2 year well check. I just want to have the doctor look at him more carefully and see if there are any tests that need to be run or if there is anything I can do to prevent another one or make him comfortable if he has another one.
