A trip to the ER

Well today we ended up at the Mckay Dee emergency room because while I was doing Autumn's hair she passed out and hit her head on the tile.  I thought she may have had a small seizure just before she fainted, so we ran her up to be checked out.  She had a CT scan, EKG scan, blood draw and was placed on a heart monitor while we were waiting for the results for all the tests. She was such a trooper we were very proud of her, she didn't even cry when they poked her for the blood.  They even gave her a copy of her EKG to take to her class tomorrow to show her class.

Everything checked out good.  We do have to keep an eye on her for future episodes.  Unfortunately she got that gene from her mom.  Yes you read right fainting spells can be caused by a gene in your body, I was suprised to learn that today.

As you can see Mike was very tired and board, as were Autumn and I.  They put us in a room with no t.v. for two and half hours.

We are just glad to be home and have her back to normal.
