I have been experiencing something like seizures that are very troublesome. Therefore, I have been undergoing a lot of medical tests. They have discovered some interesting things that I needed to know about such a vein problem in my right frontal lobe, that I get very little (1.7%) deep sleep (stages 3 and 4) and that my heart rate is sometimes extremely irregular and some other odds and ends. I am not sure the answer to the original question (What is happening when I have these things that are similar to seizures) but it seems like working on the other issues will help me feel better.
Now, the good news! My husband got me a new car yesterday. We will celebrate our 21st anniversary this week and he topped off the occasion with a lovely gold 2005 Highlander. It drives so smoothly and it is a wonderful anniversary gift!
We are still having an amazing time learning all about horses. One of our friends from church is teaching us. Last week it was raining and thundering on our day to go to the stables. Nothing could hold us back as we are completely smitten with the horses. We were learning all about saddles (my daughter can do this, there is no way I can pick up a saddle right now) and enjoying the horses. My daughter took to putting the gear on the horse like she had been doing it all of her life.
In the midst of all of this I heard some sounds in the field behind us and one of the horses we were working with sounded a warning. Our friend is deaf and she had no idea what was going on. On a side note, the horses completely know she can not hear and it is obvious they keep a watch on everything for her.
So, I told my friend that her horse was telling her something and she needed to check out what was happening. It turns out that 2 of the horses had broken out of their field. They had actually broken a link in the chain that closes the gate. She thought that was very strange because they had not done that before. She guessed that it was the storm that spooked them.
As soon as she got the horses back in the field, we began to understand what was going on. We hear a helicopter coming closer and closer to us. (Of course, my friend could not hear it.) Eventually, they came right above us and it was clear they were chasing someone.
In one of the fields right beside us is a cut out portion where a mobile home is located. No one is living in it. However, I looked out and there was man leaning up against the mobile home. We watched as he disappeared inside the mobile home and a swat team surrounded the building.
It was quite a sight to see a swat team so close to us! Eventually, all of the swat team vehicles pulled out but we did not see them leave with the suspect. We wondered if he was still in there.
Later, we discovered that he was caught and that he had been picked up for armer robbery. Quite an eventful time at the stables.
The take away for me was how clearly my friend's horses watch out for her. Actually, all of the horses that she takes care of seem to have a deep connection with her and they not only trust her they take care of her as she cares for them.
