As most of my friends and family know Pyper has suffered from febrile seizures since a few days before her first birthday. We have went through several strenuous test that just broke her Daddy and I’s heart watching her be so brave. For a slight second it was thought to be epilepsy, fortunately for Pyper it was not. Although, she is not epileptic she did get a seizure everytime she hada fever up until last May. We are going on a year now seizure free! and unlike epilepsy febrile seizure you can grow out of. I ran across this website while reading an interview with Greg Grunberg, he is an actor currently starring in Heroes and he has a son with sever epilepsy. He recently underwent a successful surgery to remove part of his brain that were causing the most seizures (he was having close to 100 a day now he has a few a week now that is success!) . Greg started this website to get people to talk about it, not to be afraid of the disease but to be educated on epilepsy. I see it as across the board, Py has had seizures at the day cares she has been in and all we could think was I hope the kids weren’t traumatized. Maybe if parents and friends talked about it and understood it the fear would disappear. So my friends……TALK ABOUT IT.
