Navigating life one seizure at a time

Navigating life one seizure at a time | AntiNMDA | Scoop.it
It was a sight Catherine Nantel, mom to then 8-year old Zoé Sankowski, will never forget. Her daughter suddenly fell to the floor and appeared to be choking. “I panicked,” she says, adding that she immediately called 911. “The woman on the phone told me to stay on the line and continued to speak to me, asking me questions, telling me to stay with her.  I couldn’t even think.” Fifteen minutes later, the ambulance arrived. “I suddenly realized when the paramedics got to the house, she wasn’t choking…she was having her first seizure.”
