How she’s doing…

Brooklyn has been seizure free for about ten days. I almost can sense when they’re coming on. Sunday the 25th, I look over on the couch to see my little princess giving me the pre-seizure “look,” then begins seizing. I picked her up so she wouldn’t fall off and carried her to the other room and…

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Brooklyn and I. She has done wonderful! No seizures for over two weeks. Her serum levels came back low, so they increased her zonisimide dose. She’s on two anti-convulsants, steroid and pepsid still. Your funds have gone towards her ongoing treatment (it’s pricey) and a little towards her bill. I am really…

We’re playing ball again!

Brooklyn is doing so much better this week. No seizures this week. Dr. Lane said she is doing well but seizures are a part of this disease recovery. That if they happen, I shouldn’t be alarmed. Its still really hard to watch your baby seize like that, and just have to sit by her and…

More seizures, more meds and a depressed dachshund.

She had another, longer more violent seizure Tuesday night. So that’s two within 24 hours and just under two weeks from her last one. I took her in and had her blood pressure checked and it was initially high, but lowered within a few minutes. She doesn’t even fight getting it done anymore. Which makes…

All was great until…another SEIZURE

We were riding the roller coaster of anti-seizure meds. She would act very depressed and not herself. RMVN said this was normal for her to be getting used to her meds. Then yesterday she acted just like her normal, bouncy self. She picked up her ball for the first time in a while and wanted…

One-week check-up

Update from Dr. Lane: He says she looks great! Her neurological deficits are no more and she is on her way to a full recovery! God answered our prayers! He said her CSF came back with WBCs and viral infection. Viral encephalitis with inflammatory brain response. He said that it could be from her distemper…

Diagnosis-Encephalitis

Brooklyn has been diagnosed with encephalitis. God answered our prayers! She will be coming home today after five days in the hospital. Thank you for all of your continued prayers, donations and sharing her story. Share Brooklyn’s Story and Donate Please I never once thought I’d have to go to donation route, but she’s precious to…

MRI, IV’s, Meds and Lumbar punture

Monday, November 9th, 2015 It is so hard to leave your baby at the hospital with all of the unknowns running through your head. Brain tumors, Brain lesions, Stroke, encephalic, inflammatory brain disease. I left her Sunday night with all of this flowing through my brain. I knew she was in good hands and that…

Seizures on Friday night

Please take the time to read about this special little dachshund. Please consider helping Brooklyn’s mom pay the vet bill that saved her life! Brooklyn was born on November 1, 2007. I watched her come into this world and fell in love with her. I lived at home at the time and begged to keep…

A little about Brooklyn

I have thought about doing this for a long time and never got around to it. I am 31 single, and have two dachshunds. The one I am going to focus on is Brooklyn for the time being. I do not do this to be mean, its more because she is having a health crisis…
