Jessica began having seizures at about 3 months old. Since the seizures have started her development has slowed. She has seizures with no pattern. Sometimes 4-5 a day. Jessica's MRI's and CAT scans are clear, her EEG shows seizures start centrally in the brain and go in all directions. She has been tested for numerous genetic and chromosome disorders, as well as many many more types of tests,
Jessica had a VNS (Vagil Nerve Stimulator) implanted to help with seizures, she takes Banzel which is an anticonvulsant and Diastat for seizures over 5 minutes.
Jessica has a specialized wheelchair that allows for reclining and has waist and chest guards as when she has seizures she has no body control. Jessica's main source of nutrition is pedia sure, she does eat pureed foods that have a certain texture. On seizure days Jessica doesn't eat more than a bite or two.
Jessica cannot walk or talk. Her communication is in the sounds and tones she makes. You can usually tell by the pitch of her tone if she likes or dislikes something. Jessica gives kisses & hugs, giggles, & smiles.
Jessica is currently 8 years old and attends grade school. She loves her time at school and has many friends. She currently weighs 35 lbs, but is healthy otherwise.
She is a blessing to us and all who know and love her.
Jesscia needs several special need items to help keep her safe as she grows. These items are not covered under insurance. A special needs and safety rated car seat, a special needs bath seat, a special needs walker with pelvic support, these items will help her life immensely. There will come a time that Jessica needs a wheelchair accessible van, but right now these items will do her and her family a tremendous amount of help.
