Chris,

It's SOOOOO good to hear from you! Shiloh's still with me, although I did lose Izzie in September to acute Leukemia. I donated his Keppra because it wasn't working for him and had weaned him off. He's on Zonisamide and KBr with PB being added on seizure days & for 3 days after. He's still seizing but he's down to about 3-4 in a cluster instead of the 12-16 he could have.

Hope all is well with you and still think of you and keep you in my prayers.

After the last few days I was seriously considering wringing his knothead neck! :D He may not have as many clusters but the 3 day/night post ictal is making me crazy. Plus he was peeing on the floor at night even though I had gotten up in the middle of the night to let him out. Still count my blessings though.
