I’m not doctor, but I seem to recall reading somewhere that baby seizures are actually fairly common and they often grown out of them. I don’t know their situation at all or any of the details, and as I said I’m not a doctor, but I have high hopes that it will turn out all right! I can’t imagine how scary that must be for a parent to go through though. Definitely sending good thoughts her way!

Hmmm….I have never heard that baby seizures are common?  My background is in adult critical care—primarily neurosurgical ICU/trauma—and seizures are never a good thing. 

I hope the little guy is getting the best care and my prayers are with the family.  I can’t imagine how frightening it must be to have a sick child.

@gvsu- As I said, I’m not a doctor and it was just something I read. Back when I nannied for a baby, his parents were paranoid that he was having seizures (but was never confirmed in an MRI) so I did some reading up on it. A lot of the baby seizures aren’t convulsion types, but the glazed over kind so people don’t always know. I’m not sure exactly how “common” it is, but just what I read.

Some resources I read (with the understanding that everything read on the internet should be taken with a grain of salt and I most definitely would consult the doctor and be very worried if it were my child)

This doesn’t say it is common, but says it isn’t life threatening

like I said, I’m no expert and it is just things I had read in non-medical books so definitely correct me on anything because I love to be as informed as possible.

I still hope for the very best outcome for them and they are definitely in my thoughts. It’s not something I would ever wish on any parent and I know this must be one the scariest things theyve gone through in their lives.

I read Shortcake’s blog almost daily, and just wanted to report: Baby Shortcake actually has Silent Reflux (disease?) and is recovering well.

Here is Mrs. SHortcakes post being referenced from her blog:

“The Shortcake clan is back from spending a week living in BC’s Children Hospital.  What a week! I will blog thoroughly about it soon, but basically, Baby Shortcake was admitted to hospital after having seizures.  We were well taken care of (our pediatrician called in some favours and so the province’s top pediactric neurologist was our attending physician(!) and we got a sweet private room, complete with celebrity visit!  Baby Shortcake was a trooper and underwent a whole battery of tests and procedures – sights and sounds that I won’t forget any time soon.

Baby Shortcake will continue her anti-seizure meds, and will be seen regularly by her neuro team, but we have hope and faith that this will be something she will grow out of – as soon as possible.  Until then, we’re back home, and we’re treasuring the sweetness that life can bring.  Things are starting to feel “normal” again.”

And a picture she took:

@Miss Bubbles: The baby also has this which sounds like is getting under control.
