Yesterday was one heck of a day --- had the Siamese cat, Ms Lily, spayed -- took hubby to doctor because he has been waking daily with hives all over his body -- doctor prescribed Allegra and took 3 vials of blood to test for possible causes of the hives -- picked prescription up, picked cat up, hubby took one tab of Allegra --- came home, had toasted bagel with butter and ...... heard strange sound so went seeking source -- found my husband lying face down in the bedroom moaning with blood coming from his mouth -- called 911, transported to ER -- EKG normal, chest X-ray normal, about to be released and he had a seizure -- went totally rigid and bit his tongue again (his tongue looks about 3 times its size right now) ... did CAT scan and nothing abnormal there -- brought him home after they gave him one dose of anti-seizure med (Kepprra). Daughter and I went to fill script and get some popsicles for him -- they left taking the two little Chihuahuas (so no barking here tonight) and hubby had a much smaller seizure -- he said it is happening -- nothing like the one he had in ER but scary just the same! Mike got some sleep last night. He was up several times to potty. Tongue is still very swollen from biting it during seizures. Back hurts like crazy because of rigidity during seizures. He hasn't eaten but wanted his coffee this morning. No more seizures since 6 pm last night. Prayer is much appreciated.
