Scary Stuff...


Hi everyone. As many of you know, I've been M.I.A. due to Jack being unwell. On Tuesday, I had a call from school, saying he was in the sick bay with a pain in his head. By the time I got him to the doctors, he was unable to speak, although he was trying to, and had gone all floppy. The doctors called an ambulance, and he was rushed to hospital, as it was suspected he was having a stroke. (since when do 9 year olds have strokes??) After some time he was kind of able to speak again, but couldn't answer simple questions, and didn't know who I was. We had a very scary hospital stay, (where I had to sleep on the most uncomfortable fold out bed!) but luckily tests and an MRI ruled out stroke, or any other nasties in his brain. The doctors are not quite sure what happened, but think it might be some form of migraine that has neurological symptoms, or maybe some type of seizure. He is home again now, can talk and seems fine, although his memory of the whole thing is quite hazy. He is having more tests next week, but I'm hoping this was just one of those weird, one off things that will never happen again. It was without doubt, one of the most frightening things I have ever been through, and I'm just so grateful my little man is back to his usual self.

Well, I have a tonne of things to catch up on today. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend :)

Sam, what can I say other than I'm so relieved for you that Jack has pulled through relatively unscathed... small memory loss is probably the best outcome! What a terribly scary time for you and for him. My goodness, you must have been absolutely terrified at the time when the doctors were mentioning 'stroke' of all things. I just hope you had someone there for you to lean on? Thinking of you and Jack. x

Take care of him and your self. Will be praying for you and your family! Even though I do not know you personally... I feel like I do from following your blog!

So sorry to hear about Jack's ordeal. Glad to hear that he is fine now! I had this happen twice with my son. They thought both times that is was a seizure. After multiple tests they could never find anything! He's been fine now for the six years! I will keep you both in my thoughts. Sending you hugs:)
