That said, David will be scheduled for testing to see what level of seizures he has been having. In hindsight, he has exhibited some aspects of seizures. There are times in the past where teachers have noticed that David has “vacated” or gotten a look in his eye. Could this have been an ongoing sign of seizure activity? We don’t know.

It is difficult for parents to see their child in discomfort. Truly, it was more than discomfort, it bordered on an anxiety attack. A teeth chattering, chin quivering anxiety attack. I have never seen him like that. Still, he opted to continue. They were able to
