HAS ANYONE HEARD FROM NAUMH?

Just had a thought this past weekend. Naumh has not been heard from since March. I sent an PM to see if Malachi was Ok but have not heard back yet.

She's OK, I recieved an e-mail from her a few weeks back. Its tough for some to monitor as much as many of us do. I'll send her and e-mail to post a hello!

My absence was not intentional. However, most of my spare time at work was spent on planning my wedding which occurred this past June. Recently, I have been trying to get on CEN. There is a lot to catch up on and new members to meet.

Malachi update - It's been a while since the neurologist has seen him so we had an appointment this past Friday. She indicated 6-8 weeks between seizures is pretty good control for a dog his size (collie @ 90 lbs).

We discussed his pacing, stumbling, and tiredness. All of which are side effects of the Bromide. She talked about reducing the bromide and adding another medicine. However, we don't know what new side effects may occur, if the seizure control will be as good, and if the current side effects will minimize at all. Since overall, his quality of life has been good. I decided to make no changes until his seizure activity changes. My husband and I will just have to deal with the pacing, stumbling, and tiredness.

I will know the results of the Bromide levels next week. (We are using KBr as a single agent to treat his seizures so he is on a high dose. Last time we checked his levels he was 2 pts outside the recommended range on the high side.) So, I am anxious to see if his levels have maintained.

His last seizure was July 12, 2006 so I expect that a seizure may occur within the next few weeks.

Naumh,
I to would like to offer congratulations on your marriage and 6-8 weeks is GREAT for Malachi! Casey's longest time is 53 days but I have faith that one day we will find the right combination of meds and hopefully get past that point. Welcome back and hoping for continued success on Malachi's seizure free streak.
