December 20th 2012, Jan 4th 2013 and Jan 22nd 2013
I just don't know what to do anymore. It's been hell here for the last month. I've neglected to document his last few grandmal seizures....I don't know why. I guess after everything that has happened, my faith is dwindling. We last left off after Vegas has several grand mals in 24 hours, a first in a very long time. Well, right before Christmas it happened again. On December 20th he had (I believe 6) in a 24 hour period. Then on Jan 4th...right smack dab in the middle of the day, while everyone was at work......Vegas has a seizure while in his kennel. We came home to saliva on the walls and an accident in his kennel. What a way to make me feel like the worst bully mama out there. But, in my head I know that it's better to have him in a kennel and safe than wandering around walking into glass and falling down stairs.
Ever since the new year started, Vegas has been having facial seizures daily. These are very irritating to him. Lately, he has started to whine and cry during them. I've contacted his vet and they assure me he is not crying in pain, rather out of frustration.
This morning....I work a later shift. I start at 12:30, so I get to spend the morning with the babies. We got up at 8am and I immediately fed them breakfast. They went out and did their morning bathroom duties and once inside, Vegas came over and sat next to me on the couch. And they started. Facial seizures. Every waking moment he has to deal with these. So, I fill a treat ball and let him chase it around. Once done, he settles back down. This morning, I was going to take a photo of his waist line for a newly started thread, Vegas got up and as I was trying to get a photo...I noticed his demeanor was off. Since I already had the camera in my hands, I turned on the video and I set it on the floor. Vegas was in a forward walking movement...but he was caught up in a bar stool. As soon as got him free, he fell to the floor and had a seizure.
This really sucks.
I just want to cry.
I placed a call to his vet, asking for help. I don't know if KBr would help stop the facial ones. I know it's unrealistic to get the grandmals to stop. I've accepted the fact that this is our life, but the daily ones are too much. He's gone years without having them....why now? I've been asked to call her today so we can talk.....
