In Which Connor Heats Up

Of course, Connor had to go and break his long seizure-free streak today.  Oh well.

The good news (or not so good news, depending on whether or not you're looking at it from a Responsible Parenthood point of view) is that I'm pretty sure he had the seizure because he got overheated and not because he's getting sick or that he was just having one out of the blue.  He apparently got pretty hot in school today (the room has huge windows and while they have a fan, on sunny days it can heat up) and so they changed him out to a short sleeve shirt and took off his socks and shoes. 

I should have stripped him down further in the car when I noticed he was looking pretty flushed, but I figured he'd be fine until we got home.  We made a stop at a little bakery on the way, which was warm inside, and the car heated up enough while we were in there to set him off once we got back in the car.  Luckily it was a fairly mild seizure and once it was over, I stripped him down, turned the AC on him full blast and we got home without further incident. 

Otherwise the day went well; while Connor was at school I spent a few lovely hours with a couple of friends, enjoying adult conversation, being fed tasty things (pecan stuffed, bacon-wrapped dates are awesome) and working on my latest craft project.  While I love Connor very dearly, it's so nice to be able to get away every once in a while and do things that don't involve the little guy-- especially when they involve spending time with awesome people.

I put Connor down to sleep it off after we got home, and rescheduled his knee extension brace fitting for later in the week. He's been asleep since then, and shows no signs of waking up any time soon. That's kind of unlike him, come to think of it-- especially since he slept for twelve hours the night before. Maybe he is getting sick after all.

I guess we'll find out depending on how he feels tomorrow.
