For the next two weeks I would suggest you continue using anti-seizure medication. Any seizure over 5 minutes is troubling. It is in your daughter's favor that she is so young; it is highly likely she will make a complete recovery (for the timing of which see rule of twos). Second: Never go to a local hospital. If you already went to a small local hospital, you must consider all advice as suspect and immediately arrange to go to an elite university hospital. If you are in Chicago this is University of Chicago Hosptial, Northwestern Hospital. If you are poor arrange for a second appointment at Catholic hospital. Loyola University Hospital in Chicago will give you 50% off if you pay cash. If you are downstate go to University of Illinois or Washington University. There is a high probability at even non-elite University hospitals that the doctor you talk to will be ignorant and make things up. This is not to say there are not brilliant doctors outside of elite institutions, this is to say the probability that that doctor is your doctor is very low.
