My 2 year old

Hello all,
My two year old son was recently diagnosed with epilepsy, so far we've only witnessed absence seizures. Because epilepsy runs on both sides of the family, she doesn't know what the future looks like for him. Whether he will grow out of them or if he will develop convulsions in addition to the absense. Living with all this uncertainty is really making me anxious. I feel like I should prepare for convulsions but idk where to even start and I'm scared to death what if he has one while at the sitter?
