THUMBNAIL BY @Adeline324
A seizure is a sudden, uncontrolled electrical disturbance in the brain. It can cause changes in your behavior, movements or feelings, and in levels of consciousness. If you have two or more seizures or a tendency to have recurrent seizures, you have epilepsy. There are many types of seizures, which range in severity.
♡ Abigail is my dog. She's seven years old and we adopted her from the shelter one year, and two months ago. She's a chocolate lab. Neurotic. Kind. Loving. She was perfectly normal until four months ago, when she had her first seizure.
It was one of the scariest things I've ever seen. Her twitching uncontrollably, her eyes bugged out without blinking, her panting from overheation.
Once she was done she acted like nothing happened and I didn't leave her side for a week. Three months later, another seizure. This one lasting for six minutes. Once the timer passed five, I felt like I would never see her again. I opened my eyes and saw her finishing resting from the twitching.
A month passed and now its the end of August. After noon, she started again. Looking horrified, but not controlliing her body, she tried moving but it got worse. Once it passed TEN MINUTES OF SEIZING I started to freak out. She wasn't doing anything and just stared out at nowhere. It ended at thirteen minutes, when she stopped and blinked. It took her an HOUR to finally start moving. I pet her for ten minutes, then we let her outside to do her business.
She went out, and started limping. She started going up the wood stairs then fell suddenly and tripped down them while the seizure started.
Thankfully, it stopped in five minutes. But, it was scary! Two in one day! I haven't left her side since. I moved her bed into my room, and put my bed on the floor so I could hold onto her and watch her. I haven't been sleeping since, and every time her eyes go out or she shakes, I start to get scared.
I really love my dog, and I don't want anything to happen to her. I'm working on an AMV for her, showing how much I love her. Its to the song -- say something - a great big world, christina agulera.
This is pretty much a vent, but I need to show my love in every way she wants!
