Tonic Seizures

We were really hoping that 2010 would be different. We should've been more specific--better than 2009, not worse. After all, wouldn't it be hard to get any worse than 2009 for us? We were wrong. Here is the email I sent to Bertrand's doctors this morning.
Yesterday afternoon, Bertrand had a tonic seizure. He had another one this morning. They are about 5 seconds long. His eyes cross slightly, both his arms are stuck out in a rigid pseudo hug (wrists and hands turned in). After them, he is inconsolably upset.

Happy new year,
Cristina
