Spent the night in the ER OT

DS had a febrile convulsion last night and we spent the night in hospital. All is well now and he has antibiotics to help a throat infection and pamol to ease the fever. DS didn't give us any indication he was sick, it was awful. We felt so helpless while it was happening.

Its like a seizure, caused by a rapid change increase in temperature. It's fairly common in little children between 6month - 6 years. Its the bodies way in cooling down. The 111 operator I spoke to on the phone was a lifesaver, she stayed on the line til the ambulance got here.

oh no! Hugs to sweet Taine (and you!!). I have a friend who went through this a couple times for some reason her son was really sensitive to fevers. Thankfully now he's completely outgrown it but it used to scare her senseless. Poor Taine, I hope he's one the mend quickly!

That's so scary Nicole! I am glad to hear he's okay, and usually febrile seizures/convulsions don't have lasting effects. *hugs* to both you, Daddy, and little boy.

Poor baby! My nephew has had a few febrile seizures. He's 3. I guess once you have one, you are prone to having more.

Glad he's on the mend!

Poor thing! I hope he feels better quickly! I'm sure that was a very scary experience.

The same thing happened to my 10-month old nephew two weeks ago & he is fine now. Hope Taine is all better soon!

Oh my gosh I'm sorry you would have been so scared especially without any warning. Glad he's got the ABs now and is on the mend!

So scary. My son has a seizure disorder and I remember when that first one hit - I was petrified!! I am so glad though your son will out grow these and hopefully never have another one. One second of a seizure feels like one hour to me. Take care!!
