...have seizures or focal seizures ONLY during the night and/or early morning?

We notice a pattern with Ursa in the early morning hours when there's a disturbance in her brain as she's waking up that brings on focal seizures.

Jake has always gone back and forth. 5 years ago he only had them between 10am and noon. We adjusted the meds, and added things and then he started having them late at night or early am. It's very common for them to have them when they come out of a deep sleep and many times early am.
The last couple Jake's had have been in the morning again so we're waiting to see if there's a pattern or if it was a fluke.
