RiverRes's Journal, 16 February 2013

My great morning turned into the day from hell. My son reacted to the meds they were giving him and spent all afternoon and evening having muscle spasms that consumed his body and were seizure-like. Hell of a price to pay for a headache cure. Scared me, made my daughter cry, made me cry. Shitty damned day.

I got her a ride home from the hosptial. I will stay here and monitor his sleep and spasms. Thank God they didn't send him home this afternoon. There are just so many things that could of/should of gone wrong, but didn't. Guardian angels are certainly working overtime.

I'm just catching up on journals & so sorry to hear of your son's ill health. Please know you are in my thoughts & prayers too. I'm dealing with my mom who is in the early stages of Alzheimer's -- I'm here if you ever need to talk, dump on, cry with etc. Xoxox

Thank you both! He is very resilient and is bouncing back. Home for rest and Benadryl for the next few days, then, hopefully, back to normal. Ah! Blessed normal!
