My son is 7 years old and has just been diognosed with absence seizures. We have been told there is a real possiblity of him having a grand mal seizure. I was told that you just move things out of the way and phone the ambulance if it lasts more then 5 minutes. Since talking to other people about it I've been told that they can turn purple and foam at the mouth? I've also been told that you can lean over the top of them to keep them from moving around, is this right? Please all advice welcome, I would like to know what to possibly expect.
