Harley's back in ICU

August 11th, 2007, 08:30 AM
Last night after all was done for my Mom's funeral, we got home and there was a call from the ICU at the Vet Hospital.

They had weaned Harley off the tramadol, his last dose was at 5:00 am yesterday morning. Well, around 7:00 pm last night Harley started having more seizures, small ones, but several. While we know he is blind in his right eye, they now believe there is a problem occuring on the left side, twitching etc. He is not responding to neurological stimilus which they believe means brain damage.

I have to make a decision today as to what I will do. I could have a CT scan done which will only confirm that there is a brain problem or they can send Harley home with valium and I would have to administer it every time he has a seizure or........

My Mom's burial is at 10:30 this morning and Steph goes home at 4:00, so by tonight I should have more news on what I am going to do with my Dude.....

I haven't had a chance to write a response, but I have been thinking about you and Harley.

I'm very sorry about your mother, and now you are being put into a tough position with Harley. I hope that all works out for Harley. I really am praying for you all.

I am so sorry about your mom and about your dude :grouphug: I have been reading about everything you are going through and my heart goes out to you. I am losing my girl to a spinal tumor right now and we have made that hard decision that I have always dreaded. I know how hard it is to watch them suffer. I hope with all my heart that things turn out better for you and your family:fingerscr :fingerscr. You obviously love him very much and are doing everything you possibly can. Hang in there.
