MP had another seizure-y episode around 11:30 today. I was downstairs and did not see it, but Acorn caught it (he didn't see what she was doing up to the episode, but heard her fall to her side [w/a loud kaboom
] and saw that she was seizing. He guessed about 10 seconds of actual episode, during or after which she peed, had long breaths while quietly whine-squeaking, not stiff legs but no paddling/leg movement, eyes open and looked "scared" but couldn't tell if she was conscious or not. He thinks she got up to mosey about and suddenly fell. He didn't hear coughs or gags right before it happened, like I did with her previous ones (July and November last year). This one sounded the least dramatic of all three. By the time I made it up stairs, she had come out of it and was just breathing deep and looking tired with her head on his hand. He had put his hand under her head because she was on hard wood and bonked her head pretty hard. He said as she came out of it, she licked his hand and looked at him and stuff. I gave her honey and yogurt and she ate no problem. She still seems kind of tired but had no problem trotting over to the kitchen to get more food. I had Acorn talk to a tech at the vet to log in the episode in her chart. We go see our reg vet tomorrow afternoon for regular acupuncture, so I'll talk to her, then.
It seemed to me like her gums seemed slightly paler immediately after, but I could be wrong, or that it's sometimes paler in mornings. (She got a late start this morning!)
I still can't quite figure out whether it's seizures or syncope, and all my vets seem to think they are different things. I think we hadn't really pursued diagnostic stuff other than regular bloodwork and blood pressure readings because she was not having them that often. She did almost go an entire year since the last (observed) one, though.
One thing that has been bothering me is that she seriously slams her head down when she lies down on her left (bad shoulder) side. It's like a big kaboom. She only does it on soft beds at home, but has done it on a medium-thick rugs at Acorn's. I'm guessing she does this because it hurts to slowly bear weight on her bad shoulder; she doesn't kaboom on her right/good side. I seriously wonder if she's getting concussions or something even if she does it on soft surfaces. :S
Anyway! I was hoping for a park outing today for my b-day, but we should maybe take it kind of easy. Poor Pancakes.
Thanks for listening!
