Heart Failure (again)

Talk about timing.
Guess who had another one of those episodes (possible seizures)?
I half expected it-- he was so exhausted yesterday he hardly ate anything.
I went to get him up this morning and once again he was completely
limp and lethargic.
We videotaped him to show the Neurologist.
Honestly, he didn't seem quite as bad this morning as the past four times--
this time he at least responded with his eyes.
We pricked his finger to take blood-- and he didn't even react.
The Glucose monitor showed his level at 45.
The Neurologist had told me on Monday that he couldn't say at
what level Kean would have a "seizure" it depends on the kid-
he said it could be at 50 or at 40.
We'll see what he says next week.
We gave Kean some glucose gel and immediately fed him some Pediasure (high calorie milk)
 It took him about 45 minutes to perk up and pull out of it.
 But perk up he did.
By the end of the day, he was back to his crazy self (surrounded by
the girls and a few friends).
To see him now, you'd never in a million years guess
he'd given him momma such a scare this morning.
Crazy kid.

We test Rose all night long to make sure her Blood glucose doesn't get too low. Her having a seizure from being too low is one of my worst fears and it sounds like you have done this several times all ready. I can't even imagine. I am so sorry but you are an amazing woman and mother. And Kean is an amazing spirit to deal with all of these physical issues.
