I had a seizure attack.
Everyone got traumatized by the incident. It was totally unexpected as my blood pressure has always been normal, if not low.
So that Sunday morning, I was supposed to do my morning routine (move the baby out of bed, go to our sala and feed him) when I fell from the bed during the first attack. I think I was trying to put baby’s mittens when I suddenly couldn’t control my arms and passed out. My last memory was looking at the ceiling and terribly shaking. Having a seizure is like having an epilepsy attack. I don't know what happened after. When I woke up and gained consciousness I was already in the emergency room. Putting everyone's story together, they said I was found under the bed and was immediately put on a chair. I had blood stains on my dress (I think from biting my tongue). I was conscious and was answering questions correctly until I was asked if I knew I delivered a baby recently. I shook my head. They asked if I knew I have stitches because of CS operation, I was just looking blankly at them.
I had my second attack when Marvin arrived. He was talking to me, trying to have a conversation on what happened. I was then brought to the hospital. Mom said I gained consciousness again when I was being brought out of the car, with a spoon on my mouth. They were preventing me from biting my tongue. When I was in the ER, my consciousness came and went. I saw different people including my OB. I couldn’t remember being moved to ICU but I woke up and was already there. The magnesium shots were very painful; they were injected through my buttocks Even after weeks of being discharged, the pain was still there.
Thankfully, I got out of the hospital after 4 days.
Looking back, there are so many things they said contributed to the seizure. OB said it was because I wasn't taking a bath so my body heat rose, mama said 'binat'. I think it was post natal depression. Hmmmm.
Let's talk about it some other time.
...Happy to be enjoying another LIFE! Thank you Lord!!!
