We were upset, but we never expected seizure freedom from this diet, just hopefully a reduction. Five seizures are bad, but we know how much worse it can be so we just went on with keeping an eye on him. A bit later while we were walking up the stairs, he had another one. He lost muscle tone and his body was thrown backward. Had I not been one step behind him he would have thrown himself backward down half a flight of stairs completely unconscious. I called for Mike and set him down on the stairs. He continued to have about 3 more, each time slamming his head backward into the wall. We were concerned enough by now to put in a call to his neurologist to just let them know what was going on.
He didn't have anymore for a while, but in the evening they started up again, and he started cycling. While we were getting him to drink his cream with dinner (yummy....) every time he would lean in to take a sip he would have one and his body would be thrown back. My poor boy. He got through dinner and had a few more while settling down for the night. Once he was asleep he was a very jerky mess, just like he used to be.... He had about 20 of these (atonic) drop seizures yesterday, and I am very anxiously sitting here waiting to see what happens today. I HATE this feeling!!!
I must mention that yesterday Jet was acting very off. He is the most laid back relaxed dog I have ever seen, and unless the kids are playing with him or he needs to go out and pee he is just passes out on his bed. Yesterday he was pacing back and forth through the living room, and he would come up to me and sit down and look at me. I figured he just needed to go out 12 times in an hour. Mike even said he was acting a big off when he got home. We took him up to bed with us last night because if Ethan did have more I wanted him to be around. He was very uneasy. He was panting alot and couldn't seem to get comfortable. The question is am I reading into things, or did he sense something was off? He and Ethan are very bonded, and love each other very much. I hope it was him realizing something was off. I will be keeping a closer eye on him from now on:)
