Today, however, Forrest had a grand mal seizure, including 20 harrowing minutes of non-responsiveness and scaring us all severely. Middleburg Fire and Rescue responded to my 911 call. Once in the ambulance, Forrest began to bounce back. Though he still had some left sided weakness, he regained his voice, and was explaining Toliver to the EMT. Toliver, who was as concerned as the rest of us, rode in a car with Tami to the hospital. After a CT scan and blood-work at the Landsdowne ER, the doctors consulted with Forrest's team of specialists and ruled out the worst complications. Currently there is not a specific trigger identified for the seizure. The Keppra level tests are still at the lab, and may lend answers, but it's not likely. We are home tonight and for now we are back to taking night shifts sitting watchful by his bedside.
Life is uncertain. Cherish every moment with your friends and family! I'm amazed at how quickly 44 bounced back. On the ride home he was taking off his heart rate leads from the hospital and attaching them to Tami's forehead as she drove home. His humor and wit is in full effect.
