In brief: Sleep
Following the seizure, expect the child to sleep for a variable period of time, 1/2 to several hours.
When the child awakens expect them to act normally.

In brief: Febrile convulsion
These are very scary for the parent but have no long term ill effects.
They may recur with future febrile illnesses in children < 3-4 yrs old . There is no relationship with development of epilepsy later in life.
