I felt a bit of change in my son behavior. I could only sense certain difference which was hyperactive to me (but normal to my in-laws). His attention was lagging in school. He had three febrile seizure attacks. I hope he should be alright and shouldn’t find any difficulty in learning.

My son is 19 months old and has never been sick a single day of his life. However the other night when I was getting him dressed for bed, he began breathing funny almost as if he were hyperventilating. I told him to quit being silly, and tried to raise him up so I could zip his pajamas up. He then was in a dazed like state and not responding to me at all, his eyes rolled back and he became limp. I lay him down on the floor and he was nonresponsive. I administered CPR. He was in this state for about 15 minutes. Everything is fine now after this episode of febrile seizure, and his fever is being controlled with Motrin/Tylenol.
