We took our healthy 6 month old in for his Well Baby Visit on 10/16. He got his shots at about 6pm. I didn't know enough at that time to question the doctor. We just went with the shots he said we should get. After each shot session we give Tylonol every 4 hours to keep the fevers away. At 8:30am on 10/17 I found Austin having a seizure in bed. I called 911 and we were taken to our local hospital. They tried to say it was from a fever but when they took his temp. it was normal. While we were in that ER he had 2 more seizures. They questioned us if he had been shaken or dropped. We said no and they did a CT-Scan just to make sure. It came back fine as we knew it would. They sent us to MPLS Children's Hospital. While there he had an EKG, MRI, Spinal tap, and 24 hour video EEG. All the testing came back normal. The first Dr. said right away it was from the Pertussis Vaccine. Austin had a total of 5 seizures on 10/17. Other doctor's we saw wouldn't admitt it was from the shots. They said there is no way to know forsure but I know!

10 days passed with no seizures but then he had 2 petite mals. We go to the Neurologist on 11/8. I am also e-mailing back & fourth with a Pedi Homopath to see if they can help. I wished I would have researched into vax's a long time ago. I feel so guilty that I did this to my baby. He will not get any more vaccinations! I am just praying that there are no long term problems!
