What a Scare!

I had a terrifying day today! Merlin (the cute furry white thing of mine) fell from his window ledge today and whacked his head on his step stool. He had a small seizure. I was at the computer at the time and heard the worst noise I've ever heard. He screamed! I ran to him and he was laying on the floor on his side very stiff. I put my hand on him and said his name and he stopped crying and peed a bit on the floor! Then he hopped up and started walking around. He walked fine so I knew his back wasn't broken or anything. He then threw up his breakfast on the carpet! I called and got a ride to take him to the vet. His eyes were a bit glazed and I was in a panic. The vet did a thorough exam and said he had a seizure from hitting his head! The vet said he will be just fine. They gave him a small dose of Valium to keep him calm the rest of the day and sent us home! I was so worried! He has returned to complete normal now and I'm feeling so much better. The vet said to just watch in case he has another seizure. If he does he'll more than likely have to be treated for epilepsy. The vet didn't really feel it was epilepsy though, just the bump to the noggin. I'm so happy and relieved that he is back to normal! Uhg! No more scaring mom from now on!

Oh My!!! That sure is scary!, I know exactly what you mean, my baby (lol- he is 125 lbs) Sirius has epilepsy:( He is almost 4 though and has been seizure free since starting his medication at 10 months:) It is horrible to watch and breaks your heart so I do hope you never have to witness this again with your baby!! Sure glad to hear he is back to normal again:):)
