I don't want to dramatise what happened to Smidge last week because after all, one in thirty small children have a febrile seizure at some point don't they? But OMG!! I soooo want to dramatise what happened to Smidge last week :-/
Febrile seizures? My Smidge? Eeek, naaw..shudder shudder.
Why Smidge? Why?
And of course, If you're going to do something, then do it properly, right Smidge? don't bother with a straight forward febrile seizure, that would be too simple. Make sure its the A-typical kind and throw in a few special features too if you can. That would be much more in keeping with your usual style...
How could someone so adorable cause so much trouble?
I know there's no point in dwelling on it. It's as One-day Hubby and the good Doctor said, If you're going to dwell on anything, dwell on the good stuff.
One-day Hubby, he's just relieved we got to the hospital on time.
One-day Hubby, He's just pleased that there was no identified underlying cause, and, One-day Hubby he is altogether happy that (a) We got a take-home kid from NICU and (b) She doesn't have any known developmental problems.
And I'm happy about those things too, but at the same time as feeling
The latest cause for concern is that both Mister G and One-day Hubby have come down with heavy colds. As the seizures are temperature related, a cold may put Smidge at risk of another fitting episode.
In some ways, the more prepared I feel for another febrile fit, the more relaxed I can be.
But on the other hand the more I think about seizures, the more anxious I feel!
But One way or another, I'm going to have to find a way to make my peace with this febrile friend, because if I don't, I will allow it to sneak in to my life and take over and then all the good stuff, won't seem so good any more, a trend that simply must be nipped in the bud at the earliest opportunity.
Don't ask me how.. but something has to happen because Smidge and Mister G, They deserve better.
