Violet just had a seizure.

I was okay....I didn't freak out. It was weird though because when she had her ibuprofen issue earlier this year, it was a week after the fact that she had her seizure...and now it's been a week since the whole coin thing....and I was sitting at the table talking to Jerry and my mom and jakie was laying next to my leg...I looked down and she started stumbling and walking backwards and stepping on Jake. So we just held her so she didn't hit her head on the table leg. Poor thing of course peed everywhere, which isn't a concern since we have heavy duty cleaner. It wasn't as violent as her first one, but it was a little longer, and it took her longer to come out of it and get her motor skills back. 

I'm feeling pretty calm and Jerry is a little amazed. :-)
We're on the phone now with the Vet but I honestly feel okay..I don't want it to happen again, but maybe I'm okay since I've seen this happen once before....::sigh::

I just don't know. The vet said not to worry about blood work because she's only had them after something major, like the ibuprofen and the coins. She's doing good now, just laying around with her back legs thrown out like a frog. I just had to get this out somewhere and I knew that I could let it out here.


I am feeling: numbnumb

I'm sure everything is fine, but that's still scary!

<3 much love to the little one!
pet seizures can be a little nerve wracking, but they can totally overcome and lead normal lives :)
no worries :)

thank you

yeah, i just wonder if they know what's happening or if it's like falling asleep....I had a mini seizure one time but it was more from shock from an event, and I felt like i was dozing off...I just don't want her in any pain.

I totally understand -- we had a cat with epilepsy, but he was able to live a really long life & was a pretty happy little dude :D

you are an inspiration. i would have been comatose, and i think its great that you are taking this so well (which Violet is going to pick up on, and that is going to help her immensely), and i am glad that the vet doesnt think its anything to worry about.

i will be thinking of you. and Violet: CUT IT OUT.

aww thank you. i'm actually very proud of the way i handled it because i cry at the drop of a hat...but it was weird because all day i was at work and i kept looking at the pictures i have of her and i sat there thinking..something is going to happen tonight...I honestly thought maybe i'd get in a fender-bender...i don't know if i could sense her stress, but i just feel so bad for her - she looked so scared when she couldn't walk yet and she was trying to get to us to just to hold her...my poor baby.

but thank you for your words (after my schpeil - i'm really bored at work too) and thank you for your thoughts.
