In case any of you are wondering where my husband has gone, he is at the hospital right now, staying over the second night to be with our daughter. She was rushed to the local hospital Wednesday night and then taken to the Children’s Hopital. I stayed the first night and he stayed last night and tonight.
If you are interested here is what is going on so far.
She was taken to the hospital due to a possible seizure. They are currently trying to solve two separate problems.
1. She has a headache, a sore throat, a high fever and is vomiting. They are trying many things to find out what is causing it. She is sleeping or groggy most of the time. She is not eating or drinking. She is on IVs for fluids as well as most medicine. They have done a spinal tap, a viral culture, a CT, and many blood tests. So far everything is coming up negative. There are several tests we are waiting on.
2. The seizure. After discussing her past behaviors we have realized that she has had small staring (not grande mal) seizures in the past meaning that she has a mild tendency towards seizures and that the fever lowers her threshold causing larger ones. The neurologist is considering her dyslexia/dysgraphia, Migraines, and known sleep disorder to be related to the seizures. This morning she had an EEG to see if they can detect the seizure. After she is healthy she will be going to the sleep clinic to get some tests in regard to the sleep disorder. They are hoping by dealing with that that the migraines and seizures will diminish. They are considering putting her on something that will prevent both the migraines and the seizures. They are watching her to see if she has another seizure while she is at the hospital.
Now: The fever had diminished though it still might spike. She was up and about and not groggy. When I left the hopital she was doing much better but they were still doing tests trying to find the root. Shamus is enjoying having some much needed time with his eldest daughter. He will be back as soon as she gets home or I take a turn at the hospital (though I think right now she prefers him.)
WAY back in 2005, I wrote about a D&D campaign I was running. The campaign is still there, in the bottom-most strata of the archives.
A game I love. It has a solid main story and a couple of really obnoxious, cringy, incoherent side-plots in it. What happened here?
