There are so many things I could write about - and photoes I'd love to post but for tonight all I can think about is Hannah - in hospital tonight for observation and tests after she had a seizure this afternoon. She had a brief one (her first) in Jan aged 4 and now today - for about 30 secs - it was otherwise an ordinary day. I feel so helpless. Down Syndrome is fine - but seizures? To see her 'lose it', to worry that I'm not there should it happen again. One of the Mum's I know from Han's preschool has a daughter who has seizures - she wears a helmet. Tonight I wonder how on earth can she bear to let her go? I so don't want this for Hannah. She is going so well - this is not a setback I feel able to deal with at the moment. If you are of a praying bent please do so for my gorgeous girl. I hate this part of being a parent. The vulnerability. The all too fragile peace of life.
It's midnight here - and the hospital are sendingher home - hope she and DH can get a taxi!! We have to arrange an EEG - they think there may be an underlying condition - hoepfully the EEG will show it up.
