Scariest Day of my Life

So today my husband and I go to take our 7 yr old beautiful little girl to the zoo, we all woke up happy and healthy and ready for the day! When we arrived at the zoo, our daughter went into a partial seizure, was walking and talking to us thru it. We had no idea what was coming next. We called ems as her seizure was a little different this time because it wasn't going away. Don't want to draw it out long but on the ambulance she went into another seizure, they stopped it with Volume (spellcheck) she didn't take to it well, she stopped breathing on her own at the hospital and had to be put on a ventilator until she started breathing on her own (WHICH SHE DID THANK YOU GOD!!!!!!) so she's off of it now and doing fine but I have nerve felt so afraid in my entire life. I literally couldn't breathe. I already have terrible anxiety now I am paranoid and traumatized and I don't know what to do at all... πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”

  • RyRywifey, that had to be the worse thing a parent could experience. I am so glad she is off the ventilator. Having something so traumatic happen to anyone with anxiety leaves them in a tail spin. It might not be a bad idea to talk with someone about what happened. I hope your daughter will be okay and leave the hospital soon. Please take care of yourself. x

  • Thank you so much agora1. You have no idea how much you even saying something at all means to me. She is awake and Talking and herself just a little sleepy from all the meds and going thru so much today. I am so happy to be apart of this community, I don't know what I would have done if I wasn't able to just come on here to you guys and vent. I love you guys, and thank you so much for your kind words

  • Hi RyRywifey, I'm so sorry to hear what happened to your daughter, and I'm so relieved and happy she got through it ok. Very traumatic for you and your husband to watch, you just want to change places with them so they don't suffer.it always makes you realise how precious life is. Sending you all best wishes and hope you can talk through it with someone. Take care x

  • Yes I would have given anything and still would and will. I thought the worse, that I was about to lose my little girl. And In that moment, I forgot my reason of living. I would have given my life to trade places with her. Extremely traumatic, I will probably have to see a therapist. But for now right here with all of you guys is suffice 😌 She's doing great and I am just sooooooo Thankful πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Life IS precious. And I am so thankful for modern medicine and techniques as well I must add, and wonderful Drs that truly care

  • Hi RyRywifey. I went through something similar with my child when he was a baby. My child had stopped breathing and was turning purple. So I know that was hard for you and your husband. I really don't know what to say, but I will pray for her, and you to overcome your anxiety. God bless you and your family.

  • That happened to me as well. I was so glad I had my baby sleeping right next to me rather than in a crib because I don't know how things would have gone if I wasn't able to wake right out of my sleep and saw that she must've was choking and she looking like she was turning blue or purple. It happened so fast. But that was my first tramatic scare.

  • Thank you so much for sharing that with me... Did you have to rush your baby thru emergency?

  • No. We where already at the hospital. This happened after they brought him to me after his surgey.

  • Omg that's soooooo scary... Being a mom is beautiful and petrifying (for some of us) smh and it's so hard to put those moments in the back of your mind when it's so fresh

  • Wow. I can imagine how your whole world flipped upside down seeing your child go through that. Praise God that she is doing better. I have had similar scares with my five year old as well. I honestly believe going through my different scares with her has something to do with how I've become such a worrisome person. And i know how you feel. It's like you give anything in the world to never see your kids go through anything like that. And yes im so happy i found this forum a week ago. Like you, i feek like it eases my mind when i come here and chat with others going through the same as i. And people are giving such great advice. But im glad she is doing well now. God bless

  • Yes going thru especially this with my baby has caused EXTRA worry in me now. I already know I'm gonna continue to be on edge. Just because I already have anxiety/panic disorder. She's doing fine now but I've been watching her like a hawk. Stayed overnight in the hospital of course and I could barely get a wink of sleep, jolting up looking at her and her vitals smh like I literally can't get yesterday out of my mind

  • i feel you pain all you can do is go day by day

  • How very scary and traumatized I'm sure you and your husband are . My niece that j watched when she was little had a couple seizures when she was with me. All I can say is have a neurologist that is someone you feel comfortable with, and the good news is they sometimes grow out of it by puberty . Also before puberty the meds should control them . Hugs and prayers and piece of mind to you all

  • Yes very, we watch her like a hawk as we always have been, but it's even more so now than before. I literally can't sleep unless she's been sleep a couple hours. My husband and I stay up a couple hours every night and watch our shows and take turns going into her room to check on her. Thank you so very much for your response! We're hoping and praying she grows out of them, and we feel safe with her meds now as her neurologist has upped her dosage a little and she's been absolutely great

  • You both sound like great parents doing the right thing, along with prayer , she will be fine. Let's talk anytime😊
