Hi From Trixie

Hi, everyone! Its me, Trixie! I just wanted to say thanks for the well-wishes and advice everyone sent last night when my Mama hijacked the blog. Apparently, last night I had a seizure! I don't really remember it. One minute I was sleeping peacefully on the couch next to Mama. The next minute, I was on the floor, and Mama, Gramma and Grampa were all sitting on the floor around me, petting me and talking sweetly to me!



I felt really sleepy and confused and I just looked up at them. I actually felt kind of happy because everyone was giving me so much attention! Even my little sister Lily seemed worried and kept sniffing me and licking me! (Although Mama told me later, Lily got scared and tried to bite me when I was having the seizure!)



My peeps decided I don't have to go to the vet until next weekend, and they don't want to give me any medicine until its really necessary. They say they're afraid seizure medicine might make me sleepy all the time and change my personality for the worse. They said if I have a seizure only once a year (which seems to be the rate since its been about a year since I had my first one) then it wouldn't interfere with my life enough to make me have to take medicine every day. Mama is mostly worried that I could have another health problem, like a tumor, causing seizures. But I doubt it, since I have only had two in my whole life! (The first one, my Mama saw, but she was home alone and nobody believed her!)



In the mean time, I have really been enjoying the extra attention my Mama and everyone else has been giving me! Mama has been giving me so many extra pets and hugs! The bad news is, Gramma gave me a bath today. Booooooooo!



Here's a picture Mama took of me a little while ago! I'm resting comfortably.


I'm still a little bummed because of the bath, but I did manage to talk Gramma out of using the blow dryer on me.



Thanks again for your friendship! It made us all feel much bette!



Love,
Trixie

Awww Trixie, you know we are all in your corner. I think your peeps made the right decision about the...SHIVER.. VET. This is one you have to play a wait and see thingy with... BUTT you do need to write down the Day, Date, Time, and how long it lasted and how you were before .. During.. and After.. and then keep that in a Safe place... JUST IN CASE.. OK?
Stay safe and Well... and AIR Dried.

Mom wouldn't give sissy April da medicine either until the vet said to start it. Butt..if you ever do need to start da medicine, don't worry too much about being sleepy or changing personality. It didn't change sissy April one single bit.

:o)

Goodness, Trixie! I'm sorry you got attacked by the Seizure Monster. But I'm SO glad you're doing okay today. I bet it was lots more skeery for your humans than for you. You just get some good sleeps and make sure you get extra luvins and treatsies for as long as pawsible...heehee!

Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

Awwww Trixie, sorry to hear you had a seizure, but glad you are feeling better. I agree with Frankie Furter, you should keep a notebook, just in case. Another thing you might want to note is what you ate that day, or if you had any meds recently like flea meds or heartworm prevention, as you never know what might have triggered the seizure and it might be as simple as avoiding that thing in the future to fix it.
