We thought it could be heatstroke
On the 11 August 2022, Aston was just a normal 8-year-old playing football with his Grassroots team. This all changed on the 12 August when he woke up and started to be sick and complain of headaches and was very lethargic. On the fifth time of going to the toilet to be sick, Aston started to have a seizure which lasted around 20 seconds. After that he collapsed to the ground and wasn’t able to move his legs. At the time we thought this was extreme heatstroke as the day before had been one of the hottest days of the year. On the sixth time of feeling like he was going to be sick, he couldn’t even move his legs to go to the toilet and his dad ended up carrying him to the toilet where he was sick and collapsed to the bathroom floor and had another seizure which lasted a lot longer and ended up in me calling an ambulance.
