please forgive me if this queston may sound a bit crazy but the other night my daughter got out of bed and for a few minutes she had lost the ability to speak properly and the words she spoke made no sense(they were not words).......... mmy question is as this occured at night was it just a sleepy child thing or a TIA? i only ask as it came up alot on google............past history of slight anemia , raised white cells (moderate) , swollen lymph glands , no fevers but sweats , 4 weeks post op tonsillectomy - nothing reavealed all normal

A TIA in a 5 year old would be possible but extremely uncommon. Being sleepy could certainly cause this. Another possibility would be seizures.
If it happens again I would suggest you have her evaluated by her pediatrician.
