Poppy - almost 1 year seizure free!

Post by Mandypop » Thu Dec 20, 2007 9:38 am

Hi there to everyone on this wonderful site

Just to post that Poppy is almost 1 year seizure free!! In the dark days at the beginning of her condition, I never felt that there was much hope of a normal life for Poppy and me - but I was wrong, I am so pleased that Poppy responded so well to Pb.

I still wake up and my heart races when I hear her at night, but no longer do I have those sleepless nights, listening out for every movement/noise that she makes.

Apart from a little weight gain - Poppy is her normal 'mad as a hatter' self!

I still drop by regularly to catch up to see how the other epi dogs are doing, and it breaks my heart when I hear that some are not doing so well.

Wishing you all a peaceful Christmas.

Congratulations Mandy and Poppy!!! That is SUCH a good run! I hope for both your sakes that Poppy's seizures were secondary to something else and he won't have anymore. Here's hoping!!!!

That is fantastic. I've enjoyed seeing Poppy's photos and I copied and pasted to a friend of mine who rescues Greyhounds and who grew up with Whippets...she is in love with Poppy!

I'll pass on the great news.

Happy Christmas to you and Poppy and all the best in 2008!
