Breakthrough

Remi had a couple of breakthrough seizures today.

The first since he started on the phenobarbitol in January. My mom came upon him at the end of what (we now) think was one earlier this afternoon. She told me when I got home from work that she went looking for him at one point because he wasnt coming when she called him. She found him on my deck by the kitchen door. She said he wasnt acting right and wouldnt get up. I thought at the time she told me he was probably just hot because it was really warm here today.

Then after dinner tonight he came wandering out from my room and when I looked at him I knew it was gonna happen. Before I could get to him, down he went into a full tonic/clonic siezure. I didnt have to give him the valium because it stopped in about 3-4 minutes.

Crap. He was doing so well.


On another note, my thoughts and prayers go out to a Miami-Dade undercover police officer that was shot this evening during a sting. It sounds pretty serious, but it just occured so not too many details about his condition yet.

Dear peedee,
Oh, no, this is awful about Remi. I guess he gets more barbs after the vet figures out which ones/how much??

It just never stops popping, does it? Poor baby, I will be thinking of you and him and darling Jake too.

I will look up this police story and put this officer in my thoughts. Thanks for the heads-up on that, too.

That's a drag, maybe an adjustment or an additional med will help. It's no fun watching your dog snap.

Thanks you guys. He's on a low dose of pheno so I'm thinking the docs just going to increase it a bit. I'm waiting on a call back from the vet this morning. Why do these things always happen on the weekends??

We're gonna keep him quiet this weekend. No swimming and running around. He'll be ok. I know it. ;)
