Isla was Born on in April 2014 a healthy beautiful girl. We went home and started our new family life. She was perfect !
All was well until Isla turned 17 weeks old, her 1st seizure started. 2 hours long. After a hospital stay we were sent home ‘febrile convulsion’.
2 weeks later is happened again then again then again. All tests came back clear no one had any answers as to why or even why it wouldn’t stop with all medication. Months past and we finally got a diagnosis of Dravet Syndrone. Our world was shattered but not for long. Isla was such a happy child we had to just pick ourselves up and carry on. In between seizures she was a ‘normal’ healthy child. Then hoursbling seizures would hit without warning. At 15 months a seizure came, it came strong so much stronger than before. I battled to keep her breathing. 2 weeks on life support, Adeno virus warning. 50/50 chance hey told us. We waited.....she did it she stopped seizing and started breathing. 2 weeks on life support we then moved onto the ward, something wasn’t right, she couldn’t see, wasn’t improving like she used to. We then got told she had severe brain damage. 3 weeks later we were home. Our worlds have changed since then, Dravet isn’t our main battle.
That was 3 years ago, Isla has lived longer than they thought, has improved more than they could have imagined.
We have a happy loud child back without the walking or talking or eating but she’s happy, she can see again after training her CVI.
We couldn’t be more proud of Isla and all she achieves xx
