Holy Crap that was a scary post. Like, the scariest post I've ever read. I'm so sorry this is happening.

Awwww...poor girl!
And poor you for being pummeled by her!
My daughter sleeps on my head when she ends up in our bed. ON MY HEAD. AND steals my covers.

That's heartbreaking. My 3yo had a seizure last summer and it is just gut-wrenching to watch. That flailing/spinning in bed is seizure activity, no? I'm so sorry she's having breakthrough seizures.

Poor sweetie! At least you understood wtf she was talking about. Sending lots of positive energy from ATX.

I sincerely hope the jackass pediatric neurologist calls you back immediately and that there is a simple solution. That is some scary shit right there.

I have to commend Kathryn for how brave she is. As scary as it is for us to READ about it, she is the one actually going through it physically. She is amazing.

How frightening. What a strong, brave little girl. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and thinking of all of you.

That is so frightening!! What a brave little girl you have. When my oldest (now almost 7) was an infant, he had a febrile-seizure once. Scared the dickens out of me!! Hopefully things get figured out soon.

frightening!!! But I have a feeling this is so much scarier for YOU than it is for her. Oy.

It must be comforting to you to hear her be so matter-of-fact about this. It still sucks, but at least she's not terrified or even sorry for herself when she has a seizure. In fact, she's got such a wonderful and mature problem-solving attitude, quietly keeping tissues next to her bed instead of relying on you to figure out what to do about the spit after a seizure. Bless her sweet heart.... what a dear little girl.

I feel genuinely *afraid* reading this, as if it's happening right in front of me. It is so scary to me, I can't imagine what YOU did while this was going on...

Wow. She doesn't even realize what it is. She just matter of factly keeps tissues by her bed. That would've scared the shit out of me. I can't imagine having to watch my little girl do that. I can't even imagine what that must've felt like. She's tough cookie that Kathryn.

What a poignant post. Kids just see things so matter-of-factly, don't they? Things that would scare many adults half to death.

I think it's wonderful that Kathryn doesn't see seizures as scary anymore but just a natural part of her life. (and from the sounds of it, you too)

Oh how scary! I would've flipped out! I think I've officially read the most scary post I've ever read... I am so sorry she, well you are all going through this! I hope your dr can help out soon! I just can't imagine actually seeing it all happen... She's so brave... Hugs to everyone..

Wow. I've been reading for a while, never commented. But that's a hell of a post. Kids are amazing, aren't they? Just so matter-of-fact about life, because they come to it with no expectations. Unfortunately, we as adults (and especially parents) can't be quite as calm. So scary. I hope that her neurologist is able to help control her seizures better.

Wow. She sounds amazing.

I'm so sorry you guys are going through this right now-- that is very scary. I've always felt that after watching a dog have violent seizures, it would be terrifying to watch a person do the same.

I hope this is easily treatable and she can grow out of it soon enough. Good luck to all of you.

I cried when I read this. What a tough little cookie you have!

Well this shows what a brilliant writer you are -- I never saw that coming. I can't even imagine how scary that must have been for you because it scared the shit out of me. I'm so sorry this is happening to her (and your whole family) and I hope the Neurologist can get it figured out soon.

I'm so sorry....

Wow. Terrifying. My heart goes out to you and her and I hope that speedy answers make their way to you.

(((The Dad))) (((The Mom))) (((Kathryn))

Beat that Neurologist if you have to.

I can't even say anything because everything sounds so stupid, inane, and inadequate. My heart goes out to you - as others said, i was scared just reading about it.

My heart aches for you. How terrifying! I hope that it's something minor, something she'll grow out of.

My heart totally sank, deep... My sincerest and most heart felt prayers...
