Oreo was OK all morning and seemed to be getting better and then all of a sudden he had another seizure this afternoon. He was looking for food, climbed up onto the TV stand and fell off. Luckily, there's a cat bed right below the TV stand, so he fell right into it. He proceeded to walk towards the couch and kind of kept low to the ground but his body and his head were shaking. I was able to film the end of it but didn't get the whole thing. I called the vet right away and we will have to return this evening at 5pm.
Oreo will definitely have to see a specialist and have a scan done to see what's going on. I was able to remain calm this time around, which I think probably helped the situation. He came out of it like nothing even happened and continued on his merry way trying to find food. I am going to start keeping a journal of the date and time and approximately how long the seizures last.
All of this is really hard. I can't help but blame myself wondering if I could have done something differently to keep this from happening. I keep praying to God that Oreo will be alright. He is my light and my joy and I don't know what I would do without him. I am exhausted and I've not had any exercise since this started happening so my energy level is very low. I also keep getting headaches. I miss making videos with him and just having a normal day.
I will keep everyone posted as to what the vet says this evening. I am sure he will be put on medication right away. So far, I've heard good things about the medication from others so it's reassuring. Regardless, we will still have to look into the cause. If it's something that can be helped by things other than medication, we'll have to do whatever needs to be done. Please keep praying for us in the meantime.
