Not good news. Sophie had another fit at lunchtime, 4 1/2 days after the last one. The blood tests came back normal, and the vet is as sure as he can be, given her symptoms and indicators, and without the expensive brain scan, that she has a brain tumour. This means that the meds MAY give her a little more time, but not much. He says the fact that she took four hours to return to normal after the fit today is not good, and that each fit has weakened her back end significantly. He says that if she fits again it would be best to put her to sleep, and I have to agree with him. It would not be fair to let this carry on any further.
So, we are giving the epilepsy meds a chance, but are preparing ourselves for her last visit to the vets.
