my grandaughter who will be 9 , suddenly fainted this morning for no apparent reason. was getting ready for church, combing her hair and talking. then she just fell back. i picked her up put her on the bed and then had her put head between her knees. she came to in a matter of minutes and felt nauseous. gave her a drink, elevated her head and she fell asleep. seems to be fine now. this was a very scary situation since it was the first time it happened, but stayed calmed. that is the most important thing to remember.
