My baby, Chesca Lorraine, is only 9 months old when she had her first seizure. It was May 19, when we had her vaccinated for measles and hours after she had a fever of 38.9. We gave her paracetamol and her fever went down. But while we were just watching tv beside her, she suddenly had a seizure, her eyes rolled up, she was foaming in her mouth and turned blue. We didn't know what to do so we just rushed out of our house and looked for a taxi. Her body went stiff. It was the scariest moment of our lives. We reached the hospital and got confined for further tests to know what caused her seizure. They wanted to have a lumbar puncture of my daughter, they tried it twice but my baby stayed awake even when sedated. After Four days in the hospital we were sent home. But two days after, she had another seizure. This time she didnt have any fever. She just suddenly collapsed, her body went limp and again foamed in her mouth and turned blue. This time the doctor pushed through with the tests-- lumbar puncture, ct scan, tb skin test, xray, and afb smear. They initially diagnosed my daughter to have a Central Nervous System Infection but all of the tests came back negative. So we were again sent home after days in the hospital and was prescribed vitamins for my baby. We really thought she was all good already but June 11, she had another seizure without fever. She collapsed again and turned blue. We feel so helpless seeing our baby sick and we really want her to be healed. Our doctor now wants to have her EEG and we are out of funds already. We are confined in a private hospital cause the tests ordered are available here only. We are hoping you can help us fund my baby's medical needs and EEG.
We really need the help right now :(
God bless you all a hundredfold.
