HI MOMS! MY NAME IS JOENIQUE AND I HAVE A SIX MONTH OLD SON NAMED NY'ZAIAH. I AM 22 YEARS OLD. I HAVE A HUSBAND, DANIEL. HES WONDERFUL...WE'VE BEEN TOGETHER SINCE WE WERE 14. WE WILL BE MARRIED ONE YEAR ON JUNE 21, 2009. I LOVE BEING A MOTHER AND WIFE...I AM STARTING SCHOOL IN JUNE FOR PEDIATRIC REGISTERED NURSING. I WANT TO HELP BABIES THE WAY THE NICU NURSES HELPED MINES. WHEN NY'ZAIAH WAS BORN, HE STARTED HAVING SEIZURES A FEW HOURS LATER. WE STILL DONT KNOW WHY, BUT THE GREAT THING IS THAT HE HASENT HAD A SEIZURE SINCE I GOT TO TAKE HIM HOME SIX DAYS LATER. HES HEALTHY AND DOING THINGS A BABY HIS AGE SHOULD BE. THEY STILL DONT KNOW WHAT WAS CAUSING THE SEIZURES, ALL HIS TESTS WERE NORMAL..SO I JUST TAKE IT AS AN UNEXPLAINED MYSTERY THAT HE WAS BLESSED ENOUGH TO COME THROUGH. IT WAS THE ROUGHEST TIME IN MY LIFE...ITS CRAZY HOW YOU CAN LOVE SOMEONE SO MUCH THAT CANT EVEN TALK TO YOU AND TELL YOU THEY LOVE YOU BACK.

The day after my oldest daughter was born, she also was having what we thought were seizures. The doctors took her in the NICU overnight to observe and monitor her. All of her tests came back normal. Jaime was 8lbs when she was born and I had a rough delivery with her being that I am 5' 2 and was only 130 pounds at the time of delivery..the pediatrician determined that since she had such a rough delivery, she was probably having in his words "newborn nightmares"..weird as it may sound it made sense because her delivery was probably the only big memory that she had at that time. She never had anymore "seizure" like episodes after that night. I hope maybe this gives you some hope. Enjoy your precious baby..they grow up so fast! God Bless!!

It must be horrible not knowing...but a relief that he's been doing well for a while now...let's hope it was something that doesnt come back, and it was just his way of showing you how precious and tough he is even though he's so little!! You are so lucky to have a wonderful hubby and baby xxx best wishes and happy easter
