Well wishes and Prayers please - Update on Utah

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

As I was sharing with my bestest friend. I thought I should blog and share with others as well. I ended out taking Utah to Emergency after his 5th seizure within 24 hours.

In the end I was not sure what to do. i tried to reach my husband but who knows where his phone was. No answer over and over. I was there almost 4 hours waiting and Utah had no new seizure so I left him to be monitored. I hate that he is there is a cage getting NOT the attention I would be giving him. But I felt that it was not worth the risk to bring him home to have another seizure. They have better tools (like a drip).

I called this morning and he did not have another seizure overnight. Thank God. He gets to see the Neurologist this morning. If I could I would simply go & sit there so I could see the Neurologist too. They will call me after. I am hoping I can take a break from work and go and pick him up and then work from home. I have a pretty big meeting this afternoon but am hoping I can take it from home. Tomorrow are my very important meetings. Hope all goes as smoothly as possible today. But most importantly that Utah is ok.

I need to stay very strong and focused.

On thing is that Utah having seizures sure puts things in perspective. Weight and complaining about working so many hours seems to petty. I would work 60 hours a week if it would keep these seizures away.

Thank you for any well wishes and or prayers you can send Utah's way.

On a side note - I of course had the opportunity to finally sleep last night but had such a hard time with Utah away. I am just so thankful that he had no seizures overnight. They may want to keep him for a bit today to ensure that he goes 24 hours with no seizure. we will see.

    I am just reading this and your last blog now. I am sorry I did not realize this was going on with Utah! I am thinking about both of you! You did the best you could and were so good to get him in to the hospital. I can completely understand all of the worry and how this brings up so many feelings about your girl. (hugs) Are things better today? I hope so! At least the weekend is almost here and you can be with him with out worrying while you are at work. Perhaps if you get some time you can let us know how things now are. emoticon

    I am so sorry to hear about Utah's seizures after being seizure free for so long. It has to be hard trying to juggle all of what you are going through right now. Your comment about things being put into perspective re: what is important is totally right! When a loved one is hurting, a person or a pet, it makes everything else seem trivial.

    Will be praying for all of you, for strength and healing of both Utah & your man.
    Try to take care of yourself, too, b/c they all need a healthy you! :)

    Praying for his recovery and return back home. I'm sure he misses you as much as you miss him.

    My heart goes out to you. It is so hard and when the patient can not answer questions it gets more complicated.

    Hope they can find out what is causing the seizures and come up with a plan.

    I know a dog that has seizures, a Golden Retriever. Her mom has taken her in for chiropractic adjustment and some acupuncture. It has helped immensely. She also has had to completely change her dog's food. Many of the "good foods" still can cause seizures.

    I know she said sweet potatoes, white rice, berries, chicken, turkey, venison, beef are some of the foods that has been known to cause seizures. I remember her saying that the Golden can have yams, but not sweet potatoes. The dog is now on Natural Balance Duck and something.

    Hang in there. It's always scary when our furkids aren't feeling well. Good luck and let us know how it's going.

    Wishing him the best and hoping you get the peace of mind you need. Rough when fur babies are seriously ill.
