I'm so freaked out. Within a space of 12 hours (3am to 3pm) on Friday my boyfriend had 2 seizures. We don't know what is causing them.
The first one was just horrible. We were being erm... intimate... at the time and he started to scream and convulse and his eyes rolled back in his head. It took me and my mothers boyfriend (who I screamed for) to help me hold him in place so he couldn't fall out of the bed. It took him over 20 minutes to come round enough to be lucid. For the longest time he looked at me like he had no idea who I was, and even once he seemed to recognise me he couldn't really form words.
The second one I saw coming. He'd been twitching on and off for 20 minutes before the first, and it started to happen again. I told him another one was going to happen, he said he was fine. I told his father who said not to worry he'd go talk to him but was sure it was nothing. Within a minute of this Jon went into another seizure and I had to call for another ambulance.
He's been admitted to hospital and will have CT scan today. We have no idea why or what's causing it. I survived friday on about 2 hours sleep because I was so worried I wanted to be awake if anything happened. I was forced to come home last night and take sleeping pills so I'd actually get some decent sleep and not make myself sick too.
Can anyone think what I can do to cheer him up? He has a book to read, I've been told a portable DVD player might not be smart in case of flashing images, etc. The only thing I can think of doing is taking in the stuffed elephant my friend gave me when I got sick with fibro, that has been my constant companion. It seems silly but that elephant means a lot to me and it could take care of him when I'm not there.
I'm not the praying sort but his family are Christian so I'm sure any prayers, good thoughts or positive energy sent his way would be appreciated. Please can we all hope that the doctors work out what is going on soon. He's only ever had one seizure before and that was year ago. This was the most terrifying thing I've ever witnessed and it took till I'd been awake 29 hours before I broke down in a flood of tears. It took 2 hours after the first seizure for my panic attack to ease enough I could stop shaking.
I'm so scared for him. I just want him to be okay. I'm going 5 hours away to stay with the Cullens in 10 days and I'm not sure I'm going to want to if they still don't know what's wrong with him.
Jon means a lot to me. Please keep him, me, and his family in your thoughts.
He's not been visited by any of his friends so I'm fuming about that. All of my friends have been texting, calling, tweeting and facebooking their well wishes about him. He's been in hospital since 3am friday and won't leave till monday at the earliest.
