Grand Mal – 5/16/14

I am over these seizures. I swear to God.

Topaz had another Grand Mal seizure on 5/16/14 around 4:30 pm.

We were able to get a script for Valium from the vet, but we’re still waiting on the Rescue Remedy and need to find the ice cream.

I wasn’t home for this seizure but the husband said it was typical.

The vet upped his Phenobarbital from 1 ¾ pills to 2 pills twice a day. We’ll see how that goes.

He’s a little shaky still. I almost want to call it twitchy.

I don’t want to see him suffering and am afraid that we need to start thinking about his quality of life.

I did promise my husband and myself that we will try everything and anything we can afford financially and emotionally to keep the seizures at bay.

But eventually, I know that we may need to make a difficult decision.

I hope that is later than sooner, but he’s almost 9 yrs old and has been having seizures for 8 of them.

Hopefully this medication dose will help him.
