Mini Seizures

Eddie had a few mini-seizures over the next few days after being warmed up. We were told that any seizure could cause more brain damage (the thought was that there HAD to be some brain damage). When I would come in, it was the first thing I would ask. He also had trouble regulating his own temperature. Everything seems to run together, but it seems that about the time he got taken off of hypothermia he also got a line put in that ran from his foot to his heart. That line made me sooo nervous because it seemed the nurses were so careful around it. And they said that if it was pulled out, it would not be good. He had a bunch of lines still: two in one foot, one in the other, one in each arm and probes on his head. But that line to his heart scared the heck out of me.
