My son was diagnosed 6 weeks ago as having Complex Partial and myoclonic seizures. I didn't cope well but one has
to adapt. Last Saturday night while sound asleep on the lounge next to me, his little brain decided to educate me on the world of
Tonic-Clonic seizures. Being his first, I...well yeh and we rushed off to hospital. over the next 3 hours he had another 5 of these
seizures. During this time his temperature steadily rose to 40.2deg. and hung around for 3 days. We are home now, but he is sooooo
tired, can't concentrate/stay focused, and just is not himself. I have also noticed he is draging one leg, and is all of a sudden exposing
his teeth when he drinks from a cup, with his lip curling upwards. I asked to drs they told me welcome to the world of Epilepsy. As a mum
this is not the answer I'm looking for, and would really appreciate any feedback, experiences, and ideas on where to go from here. Sorry this
is so long but I am just about beside myself as I watch my once happy little 7 yr old, falling apart at the seams.

thanks sue
