So sorry you lost your precious little one. That is heartbreaking. I know how scared you are for your son. My just turned 10 year-old (yesterday) has Absence Seizures (petit mal) He just had a big one on Monday. I found him seizing on the bathroom floor. We still don't have complete control of the seizures and now they appear to be progressing. I'm glad you found some control with your son. Today we go for an EKG to make sure none of this is heart related.
I don't know what it is like to lose a child but I certainly know what it feels like to fear losing one. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Keep visiting this board. The people are great and you can get a lot of wonderful information here and many virtual shoulders to cry on.
