Maggie Had A Seizure

It was around 1am and Maggie had come to the top of the bed, layed down and began seizing. A pretty violent seizure too, her body was just out of control but it lasted less then a minute.

Then she tried to stand up but her back legs would not work, that lasted 2-3 minutes then she threw-up.

She was a little bit shaken by it and clung to daddy the rest of the night.

Her last (and only seizure) was completely different, she did seizure violently at first but then went stiff and had spazms. Her seizure lasted a couple minutes then she was fine. It was 22 months ago.

I think I have a clue as to why she might have the seizures. I think they are stress related. The first one was just after I went back to work after a 5 month unemployment period. Last night daddy went out after work and didn't get home until 9:45pm (he'd been gone since 6am) and Maggie was very worried about him not being home (paced, looked at the door, looked outside for him, etc).

We have done nothing differnt, ate no new foods, etc. Although I found it strange when we went to bed she normally will lick me for 5 minutes then settle in for sleep, last night when daddy wasn't home she licked me for 30 minutes and didn't settle and when daddy got home she licked him for quite a bit too. I think she was trying to calm herself with the licking.

Poor Maggie! I'm sure the seizure is just as scary for them as it is for us... :-(

Cookies and hugs for you and Maggie both...
