My 5 year old nephew was just diagnosed with epilepsy and my brother is having a hard time with dealing with it. Can anyone give him some advice on what things he can do to help ease the shock and fearful feeling he gets when his son has a seizure?
My brother can't sleep, is always checking and double checking on his son. He looks at all the negatives when he surfs the net and is just in a stress out way. I told him he needs to be strong and positive for his son, but this is hard when this is so new. His son has had 3 seizures in 1 month and although this prolly doesn't seem like a lot to a lot of you, to him it is terrible and scary. His seizures consist of the eyes rolling in the back of the head and foaming at the mouth, not sure about the whole shaking and convulsions part. He was put on Keppra and I have read on hear that this drug is gonna be scary too. Anything that anyone can offer up for advice would be so awesome. Thanks in advance. Just a concerned sister and Aunt!!!
