another seizure

This morning I woke up to Collin vomiting. After the first episode he was responding to me with short one word answers. I cleaned him off and laid him beside his bed on the floor to get the sheets off the bed, when he threw up again. This time he would not respond to be with words, just with mmhmm's and uh-ah's. By this time I was on the phone with Preston to see if he had noticed anything this morning before leaving. I hung up with him and called 911, as Collin was not responding by now at all.
A few minutes later they arrived and off we went to the hospital. The ride in the squad found Collin still not responding verbally, but like he was trying to come out of the seizure and was falling asleep. I guess from what I was told by the medics that it is normal for a child to go to sleep after a seizure. 
Once at the hospital he got a work up of his vitals, but they mainly let him sleep. Then he had blood work and numerous Dr's, nurses, aides, PA's & students came in and out. The Dr. spoke with our pediatrician and with a neurologist who gave Collin's EEG from yesterday a quick read. She saw a couple trouble spots on it that could indicate a seizure disorder.
We were RX'd Keppra to prevent the seizures as well as diastat to stop one in progress. He will be seen next week by the neurologist to get a more in depth read of the EEG and for another work up by the specialist.

Right now he is back to acting just like himself.
PLEASE keep him in your prayers. And I will update you as we know anything.
