A mixture of feelings

I am not sure how to feel or how to start this little post but I guess the facts is a good place.

Sat morning Will was going to go Paint balling with some friends and take my brother with him. My brother called around 6:30am and woke Will up (Will had set his alarm wrong) So Will said he would get up and get out the door. I woke up and looked at the clock at 7am and rolled over to tell Will to get up. Next thing I know I am stilling in a chair in my front room with firemen, my parents, and Will's parents in front of me. They were asking me all kinds of questions that I could not answer.

I had had a seizure sometime between 7am and 7:06am when Will look at the clock then found me in the middle of it. Jordan too saw me and called 911. He wasn't sure what was happening so he rubbed my head. (I had one before about 3 years ago in the middle of RS with Kenzie on my lap but he was not around and she was too little to remember)
I sent the whole day in the ER for testing and I feel like I have been hit by a Mack truck. I called my Dr and we both are thinking it is from my Bronchitis but we will have to do some testing.
And this point I am upset and still a little dazed. For now to be safe I can't drive so that stinks. And Jordan is very worried.

I am mad that I had one but thankful that Will was home I am not sure how everything would have played out if he would have been gone like he was suppose to be. I am trying to find the good in this but it may take some time.

I have the BEST family and friends and for that I am glad. I know it could be worse but right now I am upset to have to take meds every day but hope to find ones with the least side effects. It will take time to get over being upset and time for me to know this is my life. It may not be what I planned but it is what I have. At least this time I know I can have more children.

If you would like to know what you could do to help come over and visit us or call and I'll let you know. I will be okay but for today I upset and I think I am okay with that.

I am so sorry that happened to you! I hope you're feeling better soon, and your incident is a good reminder to me that I need to teach Warner about 911!! So glad Will was there to help you, I hope little Jordan gets some relief too- how scary that must have been for him! :(

That is so awful, Reina! I am glad Will was home and I am sure you are proud of your take charge oldest son. Still, I know how frustrating it is to need medication everyday and to not be 100% sure what your health issues are. It can be very discouraging, especially when all you want to do is live your life! I will keep you guys in my prayers and I hope you and your doctor are right about the bronchitis and that this will be a sporadic problem for you and not a forever issue. Love you.
