Brimley-ish

Seizures

Yesterday I took Brimley to the vet for his semiannual checkup and he had three seizures. He had one just after he saw the vet and I got him checked out. His heart was racing, but regular, and the vet said he was okay and just to keep him calm. He seized again in the car when I was taking him home and again when I got him home. I cuddled with him for the rest of the day and hubby cuddled with him until bedtime. Brimley slept most of this time, except when he had a little food periodically, and he hasn't had a seizure since. Today he is a little subdued, but pretty much back to his normal self. The vet thinks it was a stress reaction. For now we are just watching him and loving him (he's soaking up all the attention). Hubby has been calling him Little Seizer.

Oh, no! Poor Brimley! :-(

I'm sure the vet is right and the seizures are due to stress (especially given the timing). However, it doesn't make the situation any less frightening. I hope you won't see any more seizures and Brimley will return completely to his normal self SOON.
Thank you. We were all pretty scared.

I'm going to make sure I keep him warmer if I have to take him out. I didn't think it was all that cold yesterday soI didn't wrap him up as much as I usually do. I think that set him up for the seizures.

He was really snuggly and sucky all night, but he seems back to his baseline today.
