My daughters has myoclonic juvenil epilepsy, last year she had a total of 3 seizures , on February will be the junior trip to bush gardens, she should go? She enjoy the roller coasters, we have gone to the parks and we have never had any problem, but I don't know if it's fine to let her go, because I will not be there with her, she is very excited about to go to the trip with her friends.
Thank you so much for respond!🤗
Yes, Her friends know about her condition and knows what to do
I would let her go. I would just make sure the people she's going with are aware of her condition & know what to do if she has an event. I had epilepsy since I was 10 & had brain surgery to remove a tumor at 11. For our 6th grade graduation, the class went to Great America & I still have the get well cards & letters from my class which many asked if I was going to be back to go with them, so I know I would've been upset if I didn't get to spend that 1 time event with my classmates, especially knowing my friends wanted me there.
Yes let here go the more she try to be normal if you talk to who in charge so they now what to do as she a rescue tables to take with her if you don't stress she not stress hope all goes well bless you all
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , If there are adults going, make sure they know about her seizures & what they need to keep an eye out for & that they know what to do if she has a seizure. If she ends up having one while there, then after that she might be better off sticking to the safer rides. Y’all might make sure her friends know what to look out for & what to do also if she has one. Hope she has fun. Your friend in Texas, Becky
