Another seizure

October 2nd 2012 11:35 am

Mia had another seizure an hour ago and is going to see her regular vet shortly.

I talked to Dr. Ganske when making the appointment and unfortunately her initial reaction is one of trying to control the seizures but fears the underlying issue may be a brain tumor. She is speculating at the moment since she hasn't seen her yet but since the blood work didn't indicate any other cause and given Mia's approximate age she thinks it fits and will probably suggest seeing the neurologist at the UofM once she gets there.

I cannot stop crying, she has been lethargic all day and hasn't show any signs of recovery and then she had another seizure.


Spending the night at the ER

Mia asked to get off the bed around midnight so I set her on the floor. A moment later she collapsed and her eyes were rolled in the back of her head. She was weak and couldn't move and for a moment I had thought we lost her. We picked her up and rushed her the the closest ER vet which is actually around 40 minutes away. I was crying, it was a terrible ordeal to witness. By the time we got to the ER she was a bit more stable. The vet believes she may have had a seizure (which was way more serious than the mild little ones that Dragon gets). She was also a bit dehydrated so they have her on IV fluids.

She is staying overnight at the ER and tomorrow they will let us know if she is stable enough to come home or if she needs to be transferred to our regular vet. Please keep her in your prayers.

Chester was already scheduled for a dental cleaning in the morning when this all happened so he will also be at the vet. They could actually both use prayers since he will be under anesthesia for the dental.


Good and bad but mostly a good birthday

Today was the big one! I hit double digits and turned 10 today. I was hoping for just a lot of love and pressies but I ended up getting some grooming done today. As I age (like a fine wine, might I add) I am less tolerant of getting brushed. What can I say, I just don't like it. Anyway, mom wanted me to look good for my birthday. Oh well, what is done is done.

I got some freeze dried liver and homemade Shepherd's Pie. Yummy! I also got some new Grandma Lucy biscuits. :)

Tomorrow daddy is off work so we are going to lunch at McDonalds. I overheard them say something about those new popcorn chicken bites. I hope those are yummy.

So even though I had to get brushed, I still had a super birthday and the temp was only around 70. Pawfect!!



Double digits just a week away

Wowzers! Hitting the big 1-0 next week. I haven't decided what I want them to buy me yet but it better be something great. After all it is 10 years and I'm worth it :)

Mom recently switched my food to The Honest Kitchen's dehydrated line. She said it would be easier for me to eat. Yuki was switched to it as well. I think it is yummy but I always get it on my facial fur :(

Some pawciting news is that there is a slight possibility we may be moving. Mom says now that the non-fur boys are moving out that we can look for a bit of a smaller home and one with more land. I'm all for whatever they decide. The market is terrible though so who knows if it is possible. I am pretty sure Chester would love more land, I personally could care less since I just want to lounge on the deck anyway. They are looking for an acre at least.

Way cooler temps right now, today should only hit 74 so it is quite comfortable. Before you know it, winter will be here. I don't mind fall, but winter is the pits.

Anyway, it has been a bit since I posted so I thought I would make and entry and shout out to my pals. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer.



Happy Ash Wednesday

Well, it is Ash Wednesday today and I have decided that for lent I am going to give up being nice to these silly boys I live with.




Bears - Chargers today!

I put my money where my mouth is for this football game (and I have a pretty big mouth, at least that is what daddy says). I bet that my pawsome wonderful Brian Furlacher and the Chicago Bears can beat those San Diego Chargers. There is a star on da line so I hope they don't disappoint.

After last week's commanding win, I'm hoping this week holds the same. I'd like to say best of luck Hobo, but I'm not going to. BOL BOL! I wanna win! JK, good luck Hobo

Woot Woot! It's my birthday

My birthday didn't start out as planned but it quickly turned around! I had to go to the vet today to have them look at the skin below my eye since it was a bit red. The vet wants mom to trim the hair a bit there and gave us some medicated wipes to clean the area 3 times a day. They said it was skin dermatitis but it doesn't really bother me much. After the vet though, Josh took me to Arbys and I got a whole chicken finger! It was a big one, too. And then he sneaked and gave me some of the roast beef from his sandwich. I was bloated by the time we got home but oh how good it was. I had to take a nap after all that fussing over me at the vet and that great lunch afterward.

All and all, a very good day



It's Football Season!

If is wasn't for snacks and lots of pets, that game wouldn't have been worth watching at all. I'm so disappointed but I think they did a good job this year. I do think the ill timed timeout at the end of the game caused the turnover though. They were on a roll and the timeout only led to a turnover. Still love my Brian though. I'll see you next year Mr. Furlacher....I mean Urlacher.

On a positive note, Mia Muah! is back in da house! I'll have to work on gussying up my page for Valentine's Day. Oh, and Teddy is Diary of the Day.....well bust my britches. He was pretty sick so I guess he deserves it. Congrats Ted E.
