Still seizure free! But still stoned!

Greetings from miss Brooklyn and I. We have had great results with her medicine. She hasn’t had any seizures since March! Yay! My only complaint is that she is “stoned” acting for up to 4 hours after her medication administration. Dr. Lane said this is probably normal but we need to check her zonisamide and…

Look at me run!

Over 12 weeks seizure free!!!! This is amazing and makes my day. Thank you God and for her medicines and her doctor,Dr. Lane. To see my baby bounding through the grass, with her tongue hanging out, and having a fun time. Yay!!! We finally got doses that work for her. She’s on 5 meds 2…

Seizure-free for almost 6 weeks!

Brooklyn saw Dr. Lane yesterday. He is so kind and thorough. You can tell he loves what he does, he remembers to ask about how my leg is doing. That is neat. He said she looks great, she has some delay in response to sensory stimuli on the left side of her face.  Her blood…

Spring is in the air and in a dachsie’s steps!

Brooklyn is doing much better the past few days. She has wanted to play ball multiple times a day and is acting like herself again. I think she is finally getting used to her Chlorazepate! We are seizure free for 12 days! We are visiting with grandma and took these cute pictures. Thank you for…

Chlorazepate causing drunk dachsie syndrome….

So we have a discombobulated Brooklyn. She is wobbling around like she is slightly drunk. They said it is a very common side effect of the new medicine. Shes been on it a few days now. It’s called chlorazepate. She’s on 4 anti-convulsants now!!! Blood pressure meds and steroids. She weighs 17.5 pounds! She used…

This little dachsie had a rough week!

  Brooklyn had a seizure filled week. 4 seizures over the course of 4 days! Poor baby. They happened in all times of the day this time, instead of just during the hours of 7-8:30PM. She had two on Sunday! She had a long post-ictal period Sunday night. I came home to find her not in…

Mailin off some thank you’s! 

Brooklyn and I wrote some thank-you notes for donations thus far. I am extremely grateful for the generosity of my family, friends and people I don’t know. I am trying to figure out how to keep getting her story out there. Every share, donation helps. I am working hard to get back physically where I…

More infections..poor Brookie

Brooklyn has been acting like she needs to use the restroom more, and has swelling “there”. I won’t get too personal, but needless to say she needed to have it looked at. I am glad I took her in! We just got back from Doc Tony Henderson, her family vet at Fox Hollow Animal Hospital….

Potassium bromide serum levels and more seizures

So Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurologycalled and told me Brooklyn’s potassium bromide serum level was low. They increased her dose by almost double. She is pretty subdued and not herself most of the day. Her skin is dry and her hair is thinning out in places. She has also put on 3.5 pounds! thats a lot…

Dr. Lane Check up went well!

Brooklyn had another seizure Monday night, it was scary and long. She saw Dr Lane today at Rocky Mountain Veteinary Neurology. He said she looks great. The reason she still has seizures, is the micro changes that occurred, in her brain when she got the ecephalitis. This is permanent. She will be on anti-convulsants, blood pressure…

Wednesday night seizures

We’re getting ready to head upstairs Wednesday night. I’m in the kitchen, and Brooklyn heads out to go out her doggie door. She then veers off to the right like she was being pulled by reins. She then laid down on the floor and started seizing. I laid down next to her, and just talked her…
