Emma had a seziure, we are very scared


My beautiful daughter Emma just turned 11 months a few days ago. She has a little bit of a cold and a runny nose. I gave her lunch and then a bath today, I took her out of the tub and she began crying because she loves the tub so much. As I was putting her diaper on she started to not breath and turn blue. She went limp and her eyes rolled back in her head. We had to call 911 and were extremely scared thinking she was dying. The amublance arrived quickly luckily and by the time they got there she had begun crying and turned pink again but was not opening her eyes. It was a 30 minute drive to the hospital and half way there, about 15 minutes into it she finally opened her eyes and sat up and appeared to be "with it" again. At the ER they diagnosed her as having a breath holding spell that caused a seziure. However they didn't run any tests and said to followup with our normal pediatrician tomorrow who may want to give her an EEG.

 

We are beside ourselves with worry. I know I won't sleep tonight as I am terrified she will do it again and die. Am I being too paranoid?

Geez sweetie I can only imagine how scared you are. Perhaps cosleep the night, that way you can wake up and frequently check on her.
