Seizures = nausea?

We're still struggling with seizures/nausea/vomiting, and I have a new theory as to why. I read an article last night that nausea can precede a seizure, and also come after a seizure. So, maybe the whole nausea thing correlates to her seizures??
She had at least 6 seizures yesterday, and really looked out of it afterward. Used to be she'd perk right up after one, but now they seem to take the wind out of her each time for awhile.

On the positive side, when she's not having a seizure or recovering from one, or throwing up--you're not eating right now, are you?--she is smiling more, and vocalizing more, and of course, I haven't a clue as to why. But I'll take it. Last night she had an expression on her face that so reminded me of the old Annie. Every once in a while that look just passes over her face, and then it disappears. And it always seems to come in the evening. Hmm.

Well, as usual, if you could pray that we have wisdom to know what to do about the seizures/nausea/vomiting, I would greatly appreciate it. She did sleep through the night, so those prayers were answered. :)

How I wish I could solve this puzzle for you, Jean. Praise God for the goodnight's sleep. I'll continue to pray for clarity and guidance for all the concerns and needs that Annie and the rest of your family has. Prayers for balance and rest, rest, rest. Give her a big hug from the Hannas.

I am praying for God to reveal the answer to you and Bill. May He give you the strength to persevere.
