We got a blood level on Gretchen's phenobarbitol. It was way too high. She was just below the toxic level on a blood draw 12 hours after her last dose, and right before her next dose of 120 mgs. We reduced the pheno Monday morning to 90 mgs, and I'm already seeing a positive change in behavior. We hope that this level is enough to control the seizures, and, if so, we will check her pheno level in another week or so.

Huge thanks to all of the doctors and technicians at my work.

Yeah!! Gretchen is really getting back to being herself. She paces for a little bit, but is able to settle and just hang with me on her bed. She just picked up her favorite toy - her monkey. She hadn't shown any interest in toys or hanging out with me since her initial seizure.

Thank you, my dear friends, for your thoughts and vibes. :bigheart :grouphug

I am so glad to be able to share some very positive news. :D

Gretchen is doing great. :bigheart

I'll be leaving her at the 24 hour vet practice where I work while I'm at the Capitol for JRAD. :bears2 It's nice to know that she''ll be under direct supervision by a bunch of techs and veterinarians who know and love her. :grouphug
