    Default Vegas update.....

    For those of you who are following Vegas's blog and his seizures...you'll remember that he had 6 in 45 days. Well....I'm so excited! On the 17 (2 more days) it will be 30 days since his last seizure. 30 DAYS! For a little guy who had 6 (that we caught) in 45 days....this is huge! Now, I don't know if he's had any while we are at work..but he is only unsupervised about 16 to 18 hours a week. All other times he has people watching him.
    Just thought I'd share what is making me smile tonight!

    I know you said that you found out he wasn't having the correct amount of meds for a while ..... do you know if that is what caused the 6 in 45 days??

    The meds may have been the problem....but not for the 6 of them. My mom in law doesn't take care of the meds often, so he only missed the total amount of 1 pill. she was giving him 1/2 tab at night instead of 1 tab of phenobarbital. The weight loss may be part of it, but I'm not sure. Anytime he starts to act "off" I give him 5mg of diazepam. It will calm him down...so that may be helpful also. Last night I gave him one. We had a wind and rain storm and things were blowing around outside. He was pacing and drooling....wouldn't go to sleep. So I gave him one about 10pm and he finally fell asleep about 1am. No seizure! Grandma will bullysit him today, so he's in good hands. Before we got Orion, he had gone 4 months without a seizure...so that is my goal. I want to get him past 4 months.
    The cause of his seizures is still unknown. The neurologist said there was a possibility that as he got older...he could outgrow them. He is 3 now and has been living with seizure since he was 10 months old. Another vet said there is a 3% chance that the seizures are food related. So, if he's getting only 1 cup a day and getting veggies instead....that could also be it. When we finish what stock we have...I will be ordering some Fromm...Surf and Turf I think. So, I guess I better start collecting some samples to make sure his tummy can handle it!

    Most excellent news...we're all keeping our fingers crossed for many more seizure-free months!
