I wheeled her back to her room and she had a seisure spell that scared the hebby gebbys out of me. She did not respond to anyone including the nurses. I almost had to have her put back in the hospital emergency room again.

You and your father need to talk to her doctor about the seizures. You need to know how to judge the difference between a seizure that would require a trip to emergency and one that is best handled with just TLC until she recovers.

Seizures are very scary, and she isn't going to respond during or for awhile after a seizure. A first seizure is unconditionally an emergency room and requires a full evaluation. For someone with a history of seizures, an emergency room visit for an "average" seizure is likely useless and may just be stressful.
