MRI came back normal, so, looks like big seizure was (we hope) a one-time brain hiccup. I'm to check in with a doctor in 3 months- if I don't have another seizure by then it's less likely they'll be recurring. For now, I don't have to take anti-seizure medication, for which I'm thankful. I also am now armed with the knowledge of what a pre-convulsive seizure's "aura" feels like (it's strange and distinctive) so I'll be able to recognize it if it happens again and try to get myself as safe as possible if I'm doing something crazy like standing up or driving. I bit my tongue really good at some point during the whole ordeal, but other than that I'm feeling fine.

Off to call Mom, and wash the electrode goo out of my hair. Thanks for all the well-wishes. If nothing weird happens between tonight and tomorrow night, I plan to play some derby, though it probably wouldn't be a bad idea for me to not have a huge amount of rotation.

For folks who don't follow S4 on Twitter, I'm at the hospital after having a pretty major seizure at work yesterday morning. I'm doing ok, had a cat scan that ruled out really scary stuff like a tumor or bleeding in my brain. Today I've mostly been waiting around, being monitored on an EEG, and waiting to get in for an MRI to make sure everything else is okay. If the MRI comes back fine, I'll be leaving shortly thereafter; maaaybe tonight but more likely tomorrow. Thanks for everyone who's called and visited. When you're in the hospital and feel basically fine, it gets pretty boring... yay for internet!
