Okay, long story. We have recently began to see that Kimmy has seizures if she's in a dimly lit situation, and then looks at a light that's on, like in a theater, restaurant or such. She had one in class on Friday, the teacher's was telling them lights on, lights off in spanish and flipping the lights. I don't know if that did it or the anxiety that it brought on, but she had a seizure. so...Today we went skating and took a friend that has sensitivity to strobe lights. I told the manager and no flashy lights while we were there. YEAH! Then tonight, the girls were going to a friend 16th birthday party. The restuarant was rather dim, so I mentioned to the waitress could we turn the lights up an bit. They barely turned them up, and then 20 minutes later they dimmed down again. Kimmy started getting anxious, we walked outside for awhile and even though she has been in a dark surroiunding her pupils were tiny. I was worried, but after a bit she said she was fine and we went back in. Then her freind came up to me and said, I'm not trying to be a drama queen but I'm not feeling well either. Same thing tiny pupils. She went outside for a while, then back in. It took forever for the service as the place was packed. I told the manager as he went by they needed to turn the lights up, He said this is as light as it gets. Okay, dessert comes The friend has a complex partail. I get her on the floor on her left side and take her pulse while timing her seizure. The next thing I know the lights are turned on brightly and the manager is saying "should I call an ambulance?" I'm like no what you should have done is listened to me these girls needed the lights up, like what are these bright things on now? He starts making more excuses, I just said you need to leave I'm dealing with a seizure. He did. I was so mad. I could have hurt that man. I wrote to the corporate office. I hope I hear back from them groveling cause I'm pee'd off. AM I crazy stupid or was this guy being a butt? I would make sure someone was comfortable if I could. OOOOO! What was the big deal. They could have turned the lights up. Brought us our food pronto and we would have been out of there.
Boy I get steamed when somebody messes with my babies.
