Unhappy Super prayers & thoughts for my daughter.

Election day changed my life. My 7 year old daughter Audrey started having seizures. No family history. No fall or hit head. Just out of the blue. She started having one a day. In 6 days it progressed to her having constant seizures if she is awake and not in a drugged sleep. The doctors have no answers. The body is attacking the brain. All tests are coming back normal or negative. The MRIs that she has had show swelling in the left frontal lobe of the brain. That part controls her right motor abilities (arm/leg) and speech. So, she is unable to talk and gets frustrated. Frustration leads to being upset. Being upset leads to seizures. My sassy & sweet girl is still here. I asked her one night if she loves me and she quickly nodded her head. She is aware of the seizures. She wants them to stop. Me too! We've been in the hospital since November 6th. Her classmates miss her. We miss her.
Thanks for any prayers, thoughts & support.
Jackie

Jackie, I am so sorry to hear that. Sending tons of prayers for your little Audrey. Will add her name to GRF Prayers list.

I am so sorry your little girl has to go through this. My prayers go out to you and your family as well. I know how stressful it is to have a severely ill child. I hope you have her at the best Children's Hospital in your area. They can and do work miracles.

My prayers and thoughts to you and Audrey.

My 6 year old cousin is going through something similar the past 8 weeks. They can see the area of the brain that it is happening on, but need to run more tests. They tried two different anti-seizure medications, and the second one seems to be working.

I know one of the things they tested for was a parasite.

Prayers going to your daughter, and hoping you get some answers.

Super good vibes coming her way and yours too! I hope they can get to the bottom of what is causing it. Stay strong, Mama.

My heart is breaking for you. Prayers and thoughts to you and Audrey. I pray the docs can figure out what is causing the seizures, and treat your baby accordingly. Bless you guys.

I can't imagine what you're going through right now. I hope they're able to find out what's going on and give you some answers very, very soon. I'll keep both Audrey and you in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs...
