He has influenza A. The seizure was most likely caused by a spiked fever, thus it being a febrile seizure. The neurologist said that he is doing fine & passed the test w/o any problems. He does not forsee any setbacks b/c of the seizure. They went ahead & did an MRI just to make sure b/c the seizure lasted so long. I'm not sure how long he will be there, probably until Sunday, if not a day or 2 longer. They are treating him w/ TAMIFLU, 2 doses per day for 5 days. We also coordinated w/ their regular pediatrician to dose the girls also. They are on a prophylactic dose of 1/2 tsp per day for 10 days.
I am so relieved but at the same time I am absolutely stumped at how the flu got in to our home. Here I was, thinking that RSV was the worst thing that could happen to my babies. Not so much...the flu is what is eating us alive. PLEASE keep your children healthy. My trio has been healthy this whole time & this has really impacted our lives. My baby boy...I know he is safe in God's hands.
Thank you for all your prayers. Please keep them coming. I promise to continue to update daily, if not more.
