We can relate.

After going 121 days in April '07 we went 15, 60, 65 days and then 24 days between seizures.

The last one was Feb 7th '08 but was the mildest seizure to date. Trooper is in the adjoining crate and barked to wake us up as Mattie was coming out of the seizure. (Usually we hear her as she paddles pretty hard and shakes her crate.) She didn't dump her bladder as usual and this time we had the ice cream ready so post ictal was much less than usual as well. (Trooper thought sharing a little of the ice cream was an okay thing.) We gave Mattie a cup of food once she settled down and then took her outside where she did her business and back to bed for all of us within 35 - 40 minutes for a change.

I don't know if it means anything yet but we have had Mattie on 1200iu of Vit E & 100 mcg of Selenium twice a day with her other meds. We started it a few days after her Jan 13 seizure. The vet said she doesn't think it will hurt anything so we're going to continue it and see what happens.
