Grand Mal Seizure… a memory…

1996 was an interesting year… I saw my 2nd grand mal seizure… my first one was in 1972 when I took a job as a nanny for a short time… It scared that 18-year-old kid to death and needless to say, nanny was not my future employment… 

The 2nd grand mal I saw was done by my own adult child at my parents home when we went for a visit… I yelled at mother to dial 911, my medical training kicking in and both my parents just stared at me like I was crazy… now why would you do that when someone is having a major seizure??? Especially when your daughter is a trained medic??? Why ignore some ones direction for emergency medical care???

I was just laying in bed when the thought hit me,  why my parents didn’t do as I asked for a medical emergency and my aha moment happened… they had seen seizures before and this is not new to them… who was it they observed having seizures????

Secrets will always come back and bite you in the ass… as my mother and siblings are learning… one of these times I have to write about the oldest sibling an the only letter I got since moving to Hawaii… boy did it have guilt written all over it…

My EEG is the 14th… I was told of no abnormalities when they did the EEG in 2000 for social security….  I am very curious what they will find this time around…

The brain, the most powerful weapon on the planet and the most mysterious… my brain is moving on from the recent un-invited drama and back to the task at hand… Hearing Margies song…
