Tri-Cities mother Heather Franklin’s otherwise healthy 11-year-old son Beau suffered his first seizure in November. Doctors could find no explanation for the traumatic event, but a month later he had a second seizure. Franklin now sends her son to school with midazolam, a medication that can be sprayed into Beau’s nose to stop his seizures. Dr. Rusty Novotny, director of Medical Epilepsy at Seattle Children’s Hospital, talks about seizures.
