So Gianni scared me to death Friday morning, we spent the night Friday and all day Saturday at Texas children's hospital in the level 2 nursery. They think he had a seizure but are not for sure. He has a follow up appointment with his PCP on Monday or Tuesday and they are suppose to recommend a neurologist for him to get an EEG done in 2 weeks. But I think I might talk to my neurologist and see if she has any recommendations. I love my neurologist and I have been seeing her for years. So this is what happened:
On Friday morning after I got done nursing Gianni I was burping him and I noticed his hair was wet. He was sweating,I gave him a kiss and his face was cold and clammy, so I touched his back and his back was wet with sweat! So I stripped him from all his clothes(pants,onsie,socks) except of his undershirt. And I noticed he had no color, he was pale-kind of yellow. At first I thought it was the lighting so I took him to the sun and he looked the same, no color. Then his eyes started rolling in the back of his head like he was passing out! It was so scary, like he was coming in and out of it. And he was panting. I to his temp. And it was 95.4 so I called his dr. And they had me go in right away. All of this happened for about 30 mins. When I got to the dr.s office he was back to normal, so the dr. Told me to go to the children's hospital to have test done on him. To not rush to take my time since I had my other boys. So I went home, fed the older boys, took them to the neighbors and went to the hospital. The did an EKG,chest X-ray and blood work. Everything came back normal and they decided to keep an eye on him overnight at a different location. So we were transported to the hospital downtown by ambulance. Got settled in the NICU and I thankfully was able to get a room at the Ronald McDonald house for the night.
Bubt thankfully he is doing fine, I just have to keep an eye on him and make sure he doesn't have another episode. It really scared me because when I have a seizure I sometimes do the same thing. I really pray he doesn't develope epilepsy and that this was something else or just a one time thing.
