Last weekend, Raina stopped breathing and appeared to have a seizure. As soon as she got her breath back, she was totally fine, so I didn't take her in. I figured if it happened again, I'd have reason to bring her to the hospital.

Monday, it happened again. We went in right away, were admitted to the paediatric floor, and spent five days while all sorts of blood tests, urine tests, an MRI and an EEG were done. Raina was discharged yesterday morning.

The MRI showed a cyst on her brain. For now, she's fine, but if the cyst starts to grow it will compress her brain and cause problems. She has to go back for more MRIs periodically to make sure it's not growing.

I am so glad she's ok for now. Mamas, hold on tight to your little ones and don't ever stop loving them. You never know how deeply you truly cherish them until something like this happens.

Happy mama to L (Sept '06), R (Apr '08), R (Apr '10), and G (Mar '12)! - Homemade , Home birthed , Home schooled , Home grown

Thank you all for your kind thoughts. Raina hasn't had any seizures since our hospital stay, thank goodness : Now I'm just hoping her cyst stays small :

Oh momma I'm so sorry your having to go thourgh this. I have done this with Wyatt he has quit breating on me about 20 no joke times. He has spent time in the hospital for it and they cant find out why he was doing it. 's so scary everytime it happens. Wyatt hasn't done it in just over a month thank god but still. I have had to give my baby CPR and that is so not fun. IT's the scariest thing in the world .

She is not joking how scary this is. Please everyone make sure you hold your babies tight and tell them all the time how much you love them you never know what could happen
