It appears that we are running out of luck with my little man's seizures. Darn it! The one's he had in August and September were mild, but without any real warning and different in character, more violent shaking and 1 followed by another, although brief. Well he had one last night, that although I kinda' knew he was "in the mode", still caught us off guard. He hadn't played tug-o-war before bed on Thursday night with his dad, which was out of character. And he didn't eat his nightly muffin bedtime treat and wasn't all that energetic yesterday morning. Last night's was again him shaking more and trying to get up and move around. We got him settled with the sugar syrup and valium, and he slept well and ate ok this morning. But then a child rang the doorbell around lunch time, and he got all excited, and he had another. He became disoriented and then tried to crawl around on the sofa, and then it subsided a bit and he threw up. He had another brief episode and I remedicated him with his valium and sugar, and he's been OK. It looks like we'll be headed to the vet this week to see what our options are. He wasn't put on phenobarb due to compromised liver function to start with, and we thought that was under control, but lately he's acting like something's not right again, licking his paws a lot, etc. We'll keep everyone posted. Maybe we can do KBr since it's supposed to be less damaging. Poor little boy :-( Just thought we'd update everyone and ask for good thoughts while we figure this out.
