Feel Better Friday





So it has been pretty quiet around here since Wednesday.  My playpal Ciara hasn't had too much life to her.


Ruby, I was so ready to head to the West Coast to see if I could find you and find some mischief  fun.  All that princess wanted to do was this:




Since that big event Wednesday night (that really freaked me out, never mind what it did to Mom), Ciara has been doing lots of sleeping.  Mom keeps trying to tell me that the princess needs her rest after all that shaking and bouncing around her body did.  I don't really get it, but I sure did miss her.

FINALLY around noon today, the real Ciara appeared.



Mom and I were so happy to see her smile and find her ball.  She even put on a little show with that wubba that SomePup nibbled on (hmmmm, was that Phantom?).  Anyway here is a short video of our girl coming back to life.

We won't talk too much about how she crashed again and took another LONG nap.



The three of us and Mom want to thank all of you so much for your kind comments and the many helpful tips you gave about seizures.  Mom says she did know a lot of the facts and suggestions from having read online and from many of our friends' experiences. But there were still many new thoughts.  Mom wishes she could understand what caused Ciara's seizure, but the list of possibilities is enormous.  New carpeting, something eaten outside, stress, those darn black walnuts, a host of physical possibilites that we don't even want to think about - for now we are going to monitor her closely and hope this was a one time event.  Mom knows now that the past week or so of bizarre behavior was actually the first stage of a seizure and will be more alert to future signs.   AND she knows that just like a Mom knows when something isn't right with her child, she knew that something was really "off" with her little princess.




NOW back to ME - Phantom has been wanting to be outside all day today.  I asked him, "What's up with that, Phantom?  You never want to be outside!"  And guess what he told me - "Lightning, there is snow up there in those skies and it is coming HERE!!!"  He is so old and so wise, he MUST be right.





OK, Mom, let me out there, I want to use my laser eyes to check out those skies!!!



Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

Oh, no! I've been a bit absent lately and am just now reading about Ciara. I hope it was something passing and she has no more attacks. I'll be thinking about you.

Happy Holidays to everyone there. Sage will be home and we'll be on our way tomorrow to San Francisco to spend a fun Christmas with the little 2-year old.

I am glad that today was a better day for Ciara. I've been thinking of you.

And, Phantom, go outside and soak up those rays all you can! I hope it snows for you!

OMD, it is sooooo good to see Ciara playin' with her Wubba!! Hey, if having one of these seizures is ANYTHING like when Ma gets on of her migraines (not close, I know, butt) it REALLY wipes her out for along time. So it might be a while for her to sleep it off.
Anyhu, Lightning you KNOW you can come here anytimes and we can tear up the house!!!! BOL!! What? No. No, I didn't say that....really Mom. Shhhh, we won't tell her our plans...hehehe
I don't have any snow here thou. Hey! Maybe I can come there!!! Oh, yeah! I (thinks I remember) lovin' the snow! We can do snow zoomies and do some huntin'! Oooo, sound like funs to me!!
Okays, better go before Ma finds out! Tell Ciara I still gots my paws crossed for her that she won't have anymore of those scary seizures!! And, {{{hugs}}}} to your MOms!!
Kisses,
Ruby ♥

Oh,Ciara, we are so glad to see you feeling so much better now. Loved the video.Sure hope that darn seizure doesn't come back. So all of you take good care and have a great weekend.

onespoiledcat said...

Oh how wonderful that Ciara seems to have recovered from the mystery seizure! She looks happy to be playing - I know everyone had BIG SMILES to see her doing that. Let's hope that's that in the "scary" department. It's time to relax and have fun for the holidays and MAYBE - just MAYBE in the snow! Woo Hoo!

Holiday Hugs, Sammy

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

So good to see Ciara playing we hope all of you get a big delivery of snow. We are sure Phantom is right.

Hot here and muggy. In the high 70s no chance of snow for us.

Jenna,Mark Drady said...

So happy to see her playing!!!! I bet you were very relived! And even though she crashed afterward, hopefully this means she is on the right track to get back to her old self again!

Bentley had one seizure out of the blue with no warning and I don't know what triggered it. The vet said to give him some candy to raise his blood sugar. He was pretty disoriented for a couple hours, then went back to normal.I hope you don't have to deal with any more of them.

Mrs. JP said...

So glad you posted the video of Ciara. Thanks for the update and praying that she STAYS better.

So pleased to see that Ciara is getting back to her old self xx

Furry Bottoms said...

Lots of times after a seizure, you will go into a deep deep sleep afterwards. If not, you'll be extremely sleepy. SO all that sleeping she is doing, Lightning, is perfectly normal. Keep your eye on your big sister, she is going to need you! You're a good brother, you know.
