She Will Be Ok, Right?

I just found out that my little niece (who will be 2 in 2 weeks) is having seizure-like activity. I guess a few months ago she had a fever that was pretty high and she became unresponsive at one point but the doctors said it was because of the fever and that it was common. It happened one other time, briefly, but then I guess last week she had another episode where she was unresponsive for 20 minutes. She was breathing and there were no signs of distress but totally unresponsive.

She goes in tomorrow for observation where they will keep her there for 24-36 hours to do a multitude of testing to make sure her heart and brain and other organs are ok and to see if they can figure out what is causing this. They said it may just be something that she will grow out of, but hopefully the testing will tell us more and that she is ok.

I'm trying really hard not to freak out about this because I know that it does no one any good, but I am terribly worried about her. She's just a baby....

I don't normally ask for things on my blog, but please keep her in your thoughts and prayers and send plenty of well wishes her way. Hugs would be good too....

I will keep you posted on how she is doing when I hear more.

Much Love
