Manny Really Needs Some Prayers

Manny isn't doing well at all. I am too upset to type it all out right now but basically I was told to prepare for the worst.

Yesterday he had seizures every 6 hours. Today he is restless...all he does is cry, bark, pace, run and have focal seizures. He hasn't rested in over 14 hours...which for Manny, that is a lot...everytime he goes to rest he has a focal seizure. All medications have been doubled plus we have added Phenobarbital (so right now he is on Keppra, Potassium Bromide and Pheno) to try to stop the seizures and basically knock him out.


Please, keep Manny in your thoughts... he is a just a two year old that has so much more love to give

Oh no! He is such a wonderful boy. I hope he can surprise everyone. What about valium?



First of all, prayers for Manny! And, yes, I was thinking rectal Valium and/or, oral. It JUST MIGHT stop those focal seizures!


Sending love and lots of hope your way!

Thanks everybody. I just got word that Manny is doing a little better since his latest dose of pheno.

He was given rectal Valium at midnight, and that is when the grand mals turned into focals. The vet wants to hold off on the Valium because he is so drugged up right now.


This afternoon Manny had a focal seizure and did the strangest thing that I have never heard of before, he was literally leaping in the air, like shoulder length jumps. He did that at least 5 times until the seizure stopped. Is this normal??


I knew something was so weird about the vet visit yesterday... the vet admitted to giving him a different drug yesterday that was supposed to be specifically for dogs with seizures and it's not supposed to set them off. Makes me so angry because after his last surgery, Manny was seizure free, why didn't he do the same thing this time since it worked for him???!!! This is so upsetting...all of this is because of one stupid pin sticking out of his leg.
