Tonight was an eventful night here. Josh woke up from a nap with some weird shaking. He has these episodes every now and then, so I thought it would go away. Then it got worse...and pretty soon he was shaking pretty violently. After a call to the Doctor, I rushed him to the ER. He was taken back as soon as I walked up to the desk. The Dr that saw him said he had a seizure from a high fever that hit in minutes. I did take his temp at home before I left and it was 100.3 but nothing to explain what was going on. He probably had his temp taken less than 15 minutes later and it was 104.7 and his body didn't respond well. His pulse was also too high at 179bpm. So anyway... after a bit of a stay and a couple calls to his Doctors later, he was stablized and we were able to bring him home. I will take him to his Pediatrcian tomorrow morning and then we'll see if there is a virus or infection starting. It's a good thing he has his EEG this friday. That will tell us if this is an isolated thing, or the beginning of something else. He has never had a fever this high before, so the Dr told me he might have this happen again. We need to keep a real close eye on the fever and keep him drugged to help the fever stay down. I will let you know if there is anything else going on. Thanks!!
