Writing on DH's phone that he's let me use.

I had another seizure last night, again with no warning. I normally come to in less than 5 minutes, but it took a good 8 minutes so DH rang for an ambulance. I normally have a seizure every 3-5 weeks but I've had 2 just this week alone. They are running tests to find out why, but they so far think it's pregnancy hormones. I don't know how long I'll be in hospital, I'm hoping to be out today because we have a big family party this weekend to celebrate the queens diamond jubilee.

I hate hospitals. It's 8am almost here and the breakfast trolley has been around - I got to choose from a bread roll with jam or cereal. I went with the bread roll and it was so stale. Yuck.

A neurology consultant came to see me at 10:30am (12:05pm now), I am waiting for an EEG to see what is going on. I keep asking for a scan of my babies, but they are refusing saying I don't need one.

Glad to hear that all 3 of you are doing ok. Hopefully they will give you some answers and maybe even do a scan of the babies.

I'm HOME!!! The EEG was performed, everything looks good (well, as good as my brain ever does) and I've been discharged. They have upped my dosage of medication that I take.

May I ask what medication you are taking? I was a neuro nurse for many years.
