This is the Köse family who lives in both Germany and Turkey. In October 2020, their daughter Yagmur Tuana had a grand mal seizure at night. At about 5:30 in the morning, the bed began shaking heavily. Arzu looked at her daughter and thought she was clowning around because she was moaning so much. She turned on the light and was shocked. She saw that her daughter’s eyes were rolling, and she could not breathe. She was completely cramped and was shaking. Suddenly she became frightened and reacted instinctively. Fortunately, Arzu’s mother was with her and together they put 10 year old Yagmur in the shower until she recovered. In retrospect, she does not know if her daughter has had seizures before because she always slept in a different room.

Everyday life and sleeping with epilepsy
Until she got NightWatch, Arzu was always awake until 3-4 am. She hardly got any sleep, and it was a tough time. She always asked herself, “What if I hadn’t woken up on the night of the first seizure and what if Yagmur has a severe seizure during the night and I didn’t notice?”
NightWatch ensured that things went much better. Now Azur gets up when NightWatch alerts her. Her daughter sleeps in her own room again. She still checks on her at night out of habit, but she is sleeping much better, feels safer, stronger and confident again.
About the use of NightWatch, she says: “The sounds of the base station could be described a bit more clearly in a video, as I found it a bit difficult to interpret from the manual.”
