Fabulous Friday


Lightning here today to report the good news about Ciara (for a change).


SHE'S BAAAAACCCCCKKKKK!!!!!



We are about halfway through the weaning her off the phenobarbital and gabapentin.  And my sweet pal is SO much better already.  Look at that happy smile.


She has started to play with toys again!



She is sleeping all topsy turvy again!



She always loved her crate and hasn't been in it for months.  She is finding it quite welcoming once again!



Heh, heh, I am so happy that everyone is so excited that I AM back.  I haven't been eating everything I can find, like leaves, dirt, paper, trash, and am not begging 24/7 for food.  I haven't been whining all night for two nights now. And I even let Mom sleep this morning with no Ciara wake-up call for breakfast.




We thought you might all like to join us in celebrating this fantabulous news.  Now the big test, will the zonisamide keep away that evil monster???  Ciara has been on a 14-18 day cycle of cluster seizures, and we are getting close to that mark in time.  All paws crossed we have no evil visitors.

Happy weekend!!!

Woos - Ciara and Lightning
