I hope everyone is well.
Our weather has finally warmed up enough that we are able to go for walks and dress like adults; not a child heading out in a storm. That deep freeze we were in for so long took a toll on all of us. Many had flu, colds or just the dreaded cabin fever. But it's behind us for now.
Since my last post Audrey's health has declined. We have been back to the vet and to see a specialist (a neurologist) to try to get to the bottom of these seizures that she is having. She was two months with nothing and then suffered another one a week ago. So far the tests have shown nothing. She has been put on phenobarbital for now to control and prevent another seizure. We are going through an adjustment period to the medication. It's all a bit bewildering.
We may be looking at epilepsy which means she will have to be on medication for the rest of her life.
She is presently eating well, using her box, washing up and today I took her over to the house to walk around the basement and she jumped up on her cat tree and scratched on the post. That did my heart good. I'm looking for any normal activity and keeping a journal on her daily. But the medication causes drowsiness. :( Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
I promise I'll get back soon with some pretty pictures and hopefully a cheerier post.
Right now I just need to take a deep breath and carry on helping Audrey get herself stabilized on the medication. I hope this won't take long and that it is the answer we are praying for.
I have been posting a few pics on instagram from the bird feeders and outings with the grands but since Audrey's last seizure I have not left her side. We did take her in the car today and thank goodness she doesn't mind that at all; rather enjoys it. :) Tomorrow they predict sun puddles. :)
Sending a hug,
