I'm so sorry that the streak had been broken and with such a force in numbers. It's so hard not to get hopeful when they go for so long, but so glad that you're able to look at the days you did have that were seizure free, I think that can be really helpful in maintaining sanity. Please keep us posted on how Eley does and what if any change to meds there'll be. My prayers are with you all.

Thanks everyone! So far, so good.

We did increase her dosage. So far, the vet still wants to stick with just phenobarbital until he can't increase it anymore.
now we're at 32.4mg in the morning and 32.4mg in the evening.
Her last blood level check was in June and she was at a 12.3 (I want to say it's micrograms per mililiter?)
The vet said her therapeutic level would be 10-40 so she still has quite a way to go before it hits a toxic level.

It seems like she has no seizures or she has 10. There's not really an in between. The past couple of times, 2cc of Valium have brought her out of it, but not this last time.

I think I would even take more frequent seizures if she would just stop clustering!! :(
I'm glad I have all of you guys here!!

One thing I'm super happy about though is that she didn't have much of a post-ictal. She was very tired Friday, a little less tired Saturday, and pretty much back to normal by Sunday. No anxiety or typical post-ictal stuff.
