K.C. used to love playing with Magnets. He used to be quite fond of Magnetix but no more. He gets very frustrated with the darn things. It is hard for him to keep the tiny round silver magnets in his hand. He isn't fast enough to chase them down when they do fall. So, we are putting the things away for now.
K.C. is staying home from school today. Last night I noticed him being very spacy (more than usual) and this morning I seen him rolling his eyes alot. K.C. has seizures but hasn't had one in a long time. Some people believe seizures are unpredictable, they don't know when they will occur. That isn't true with K.C. There are signs with him. He will be very, very. spacy, staring straight ahead every time he has had a seizure he has always eye rolled not even a day or two before they occur. I always try to think of what I have done differently that may bring on a seizure and I have always wondered if it is his diet. Our Doctor say their is a family history, my brother has them and he's Autistic, K.C. has them and is Autistic. The Doctor also said that when some Autistic kids reach puberty they have seizures for the first time. The only thing I can do is keep a very close eye on him. He does take medication for seizures but it doesn't stop him from having them. I have increased his Magnesium too. I am hoping it works.

I've got my fingers crossed that he is seizure free, but it truly is good that you recognize the signals so that you are clued in to an imminent one.

oh man both you poor things. I am so sorry, BUT the cool thing is you have been able to track the signs early. Hope it is little if it happens.
