Hello Janet, I'm Dr. Deb and I'll do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry that Angel is seizuring; I'm sure this is very stressful for you both.

I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first, if you don't mind:

1. The episodes that she had yesterday, are these the first ones she's every had?
2. If not, is she currently taking daily anti-seizure medication?
3. If so, what is it and what dosage is she on?
4. I'm assuming that you used your last Diazepam today?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
