I'm so sorry, Mike. Just stick in there. Dr.s generally don't give Phenobarbital until seizures become chronic and the seizures are idiopathic (no diagnosed cause).
Ask her what she feels the cause is. Ask what tests can be done to determine the cause. Ask if an MRI of her brain would identify any abnormalities in the brain- either causing the seizures or caused by the seizures. Ask which medication she plans to give Poppers and WHY. As if a regimen of Gabapentin would be worth trying for awhile.
I cannot stress too much to keep her out of bright lights and to keep her calm and quiet. The oxygen is important.
I'm thinking of you guys.
That is what I'm thinking.I'm wondering if the stress wasn't the trigger?!?!??
I was thinking about that incident with that stupid woman and her hawk call thingy on phone. Wondering if it wasn't a trigger or a coincidence, or even a stroke then that got missed thinking it was the hawk call thingy!?!That is what I'm thinking.
I remember when Popper get scared from that stupid woman, she was really freaking out.
She is sensitive and the reason could have something to do with her past.
When you are doing what you are doing it can remind her of something that is a trauma for her. Poor girl.
Try to do it differently so you lower her stress levels.
Do you need to towel her?
Can't your wife do it if it's necessary.
Try that and see what happens.
I wish you all the luck.
I will be sending Popper a lot of positive and healing thoughts.
