Doctor :   How may i help you ?
User :   Hello, I am a grandmother of a 13 month little baby and she has had 6 febrile seizures since June. Always having another one within 24 hours of the first one. The seconds were in August and the thirds one last week. With the last ones she lost her breath three times within 12 hours. The EEG came back fine so the doctors keep saying this is caused by a viral infection. Our concern at this time now that she has stopped the breathing three times what happens if she does this while we are sleeping and we don't wake up. This is a scary thought is there anything we can do?
Doctor :   She need to be reevaluated again

Doctor :   A spinal tap should be done
Doctor :   If the doc was saying it was viral
Doctor :   then it should have been first ruled out
User :   not done yet should we request one. Also isn't there a machine that will help us in case she stops breathing during the night
Doctor :   head CT also
Doctor :   That is only indicated once the cause is found out
Doctor :   but please request the tests i have told you
