"Just a cold"

When your typical child catches a cold they may end up missing school for a day, they may be uncomfortable, they may irritable, and they may cause you to miss work.  I know how much it stinks to have a sick kiddo, I have four children myself. You may think there is nothing worse than your typical child being sick, however, I can assure you there is.

Sonzee is thankfully not all that medically complex, however, when she gets a cold it isn't as simple as my other children.

It has been a rough 18 hours over here for the Sonzee Bear.

She has had 3 seizure episodes since 2:21pm yesterday.  I am usually vague in my description of "episodes"; so let me explain.

Sonya starts out with a tonic seizure for 1.5-2 minutes (this means her body gets stiff)
For the next 2-3 minutes she has spasms (5 second seizures in her case) with a 1-2 second break in between.  Math has never been subject, but that equals approximately 25 seizures

So in the past 18 hours, her little body has endured 78 seizures.

Please consider that the next time your child goes out with "just a cold"
