Pac, sorry that is a bit disconcerting for Pierce.

Thanks Zz. I was out today, the warmest day we have had all week, and maybe next week too. It was biting cold, seemed even more so because it was so windy. Never fear, there are more layers I can put on and still move.

God, who knows?
It seems the vet I saw did not know about the simple/basic neurological tests that other vets can do. When I asked her about neurological testing she said I would have to take him to Pittsburgh for an MRI or CAT scan. This is why I am so skeptical of today's vets. I am literally ready to go back to the days of old when it comes to my pets, aside from getting the rabies vaccine. It's a darn guilt game they play nowadays. Spend more money. It's pathetic.

At this point I may just let it ride its course.
On one hand seizures aren't good for the brain.
And the other... the meds do in the liver and kidneys.
And if it is a tumor... well... this is the reason pets are property and not family, so we can make those tough decisions when their natural time comes.

Thanks everyone for the words.

Pac, I am so sorry to hear about Pierce. My sister has had four relievers, from three breeders. Three of them have had seizures and of those two were on medications and one wasn't. It doesn't seem to matter how it is treated. Don't know if that helps. anyway, you both are in our thoughts and prayers.

Got the call today with an appointment with the surgeon regarding my gallbladder. It is January 13th so they did get it in fast. All tests are there so he can make a quick decision on whether to operate. I am still in pain though inhale it managed with my chronic pain.

I'm sorry to hear of Pierce and I hope he'll be all right, Pac.

PF, I'm glad Shrek brought you your laptop. That helps, yes? When are you going home?

Addie, it will get better. Winter won't last forever, although it seems to sometimes.

With love,
~Cat

That must be a relief. Hope whatever is decided gets you feeling much better. Remind us when it gets close so we can crank up the prayer requests to full throttle!

Pac, I'm sorry to hear about Pierce. We had a dog who had siezures, and we also had an old fashioned vet who told us to give him brandy and keep him calm to keep him from hurting himself. No meds. That's what we did, until he died at age 17. We had a younger female dog also, and the relationship stayed pretty much the same until he got so old that she realized he was no longer going to chase her around the yard, so she just left him alone after that. They never had to be separated, but all dogs are different.

It's around 4:30 am here and I woke up for some cough syrup and to stretch. It is so peaceful and quiet. The cat is curled up at my feet gently purring.

With all the hustle and bustle of life, it is nice to sometimes savour these peaceful moments.

Good Morning DC!

Thanks again, guys.
I know seizures are pretty common. It's the first time I've had to deal with one and it's a bit unsettling.

Oh lovely day. Not.
Blue skies but man that wind.
As David Bowie would say, and Nina Simone, Wild is the Wind.
The areas I have snow blowed are drifting over already and my tire tracks gone.
And the winds are coming from the South today... weird.

Well, that was quick! Glad you're feeling well. I know what you mean about your own bed, and your own purring pillows help, too
