Hi, I'm new here. My son has now had 2 episodes that seemed like "abscence" seizures (blank stare, completely unresponsive, almost like sleeping with his eyes open). He is being evaluated for a seizure disorder...not sure if this is where I belong or not. I don't see a board for seizure disorders...let me know if this is where parents of babies with seizure disorders hang out or not.

Hi and welcome to the SN board! It does sound like he's having petit mal seizures. My youngest DD has them too. The exact same kind. We have a few kids on here with seizures. ((Hugs)) to you, hun. I know it's scary. I'm glad you found us.

Thank you, tasha_mae, for my siggy!

Aw hon, welcome, and I'm sorry you're going through this! Like Hope said, we do have a few kids with seizures on here... we're a pretty mixed bag that covers a lot of stuff.

Hi- I just joined a short while back. Our kiddos are close in age. Claire was born Dec 14 2008. I'm part of the 08 PR. Claire has several other things going on with her, but she also had several spells with seizures. She was on phenobarbital for about 3 months and then hasn't been on anything. We are working with the neuro again because of some new things she has been doing.
Thanks Rachel for the awesome siggy!
