Let me first say that I'm posting this because someone might have experience with this kind of thing and I welcome advice.
Yesterday we took Emily to the neurologist. The day after her 5th birthday she had a seizure here at home. I didn't witness the start of it it but I did hear her fall and came running. I saw the middle and end of it. It was soooo (add about 50 more O's to that) scary. We got her into see the base Dr.'s and they referred us to a neurologist. A month wen by (before she was seen) and nothing happened. I really did think they'd not find anything when they checked her brain waves. Well I was wrong. They found something. If you look at the graph I've pointed out the "blips". This is seizure stuff for lack of a better word. All the Dr.'s are german and most speak excellent English but it can still get confusing with the way they word stuff so I'm not sure what to call those "blips". brain waves, neurons firing...I don't know. They are not seizures but abnormalities in her brain waves.
Emily was SO good. I'm mean crazy good. She had to sit still for a very long time and close her eyes then open then close then open. that went on for a long time. then she was subjected to a strobe light for a long time (turn off turn on, close eyes open eyes, etc.). She never cried or thrashed or tried to get up but instead did everything the Dr. asked. I was shocked! She was so good, all 5 hours at the hospital that she got a special treat: The Last Unicorn dvd. the 1982 version! Now Ava on the other hand was...less than good. She did good the 1st hour or two but then got tired and crazy!
So Emily is now on medication, will have an MRI next Tuesday and follow up with another EEG and blood tests in October right before we move. Hopefully she'll not have any problems on the 10 hour +5 hour flights going home!
