I noticed something in ~Jennifer~
's signature and it made me think about
something. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what happens when a small baby has a major siezure. I ask because we lost our son in December 2000 and no one has been able to explain why. He had lost weight, several times he went rigid and pale, then one morning I woke up and he wasn't breathing, there was blood under his nose and a small amount of blood on the bed next to him. His lungs were full of blood- even in the small air sacs. He had problems eating- kept throwing up. The doctor had called me a parinoid young mother and dismissed my concerns- even sent him home from the ER the night before he died despite his having slept through having blood drawn (he was 6 weeks old) and he went rigid and then limp an hour later but was quiet and watched me then ate and went to sleep. I hate to ask such a hard question but I have been searching for an explination for years. Worse I lost a daughter in 1996 to what was diagnosed as SIDS but had some very disturbing parallels to my son's death. Neither child was mistreated or abused and in both cases I knew something was wrong and had begged the doctors to help me figure out what it was. Both times I was dismissed completely. Realizing that siezures are sometimes linked to genetics and not knowing who my father is or if he might have had any health problems my own diagnosis today with a siezure disorder combined with what I read about ~Jennifer~
's child made alarms ring off in my head. My husband and I have been terrified of having another child- even with a surrogate mother because we don't know what happened. If this helps both were my children but each had a different father. Yet my husband is adopted and when no explination was given for our son's death he began to blame his own genetics.
