Walk for Epilepsy 2010 (Boston, MA)

Hi Folks,

We had wonderful weather this past Saturday for the 2010 Walk for Epilepsy held at Artesani Park in Boston.

Our team Alex's Angels had 54 walkers and we came in as the 11th top funraising team.  We had 50+ people who joined us for this great cause and we were able to raise over $1,800 we raised ~ $200 last year because we were a last minute team addition, so this year we set our...

     Boy has it been a long time since we last posted.  A lot has been going on.  We had an appointment in Boston in the beginning of April,  and we added another seizure med.

    Alex had been having quite a few absence seizures and we were really concerned that he was missing a lot at school. And not to mention he was very spacey. So we started the new med (Zarontin) Easter Sunday. ...

Alex is starting to have more frequent absence Siezures

Posted by 4pawsforalex on March 11, 2009 at 10:37 PM Comments comments (0)

Hi Folks,

     We just added a few vidoes of Honor playing in the snow.  Also recently Alex has started having more frequent absence seizures.  What is an absence seizure you ask.  When Alex has an absence seizure he will often "blank out" anywhere from a few seconds to 30-40 seconds at a time. During this time, Alex doesn't seem to hear his teacher/or us call his name, he usually...

Hi Folks,

     Well we had an exciting day today and it was not in a good way.  Just after lunch Alex had an absence seizure at school.  He did seem not himself today, kind of droopy.  So much for the Dec. 18th day (last time he had a seizure), but life was good until today, but today brought us back down to earth.

It's March 3rd, Alex was sick today

Hi folks,

Alex stayed home from school today as he was tossing and turning all night long, by morning time he didn't have any energy to get up so he stayed in bed until mid morning.  Chacking his temperature he had a fever of 103 deg.  Hopefully, Alex's sickness will not bring on any seizures.  It was remarkable that Honor stayed by his side until he feel back asleep, however the other dogs playing dow...

              I guess I didn't get back to post photos like I said last time.  No worries, I already posted them before updating the blog.  Take a look.
     Since the last time posting Honor has been working hard, going to school when there is school of course (there have been many days off due to snow this year).

Hi Folks,

This one is going to be a long one since we haven't posted in so long.

     Last time we posted we were still at 4 Paws, graduating.  The next day we left for home departing the hotel ~9:30AM.  We made an area in the back of the SUV for Honor to lay down.  He was excellent traveling in the car.  Every few hours we stopped for a rest break.  The GPS told us to take the northern route back home (via Rte 80), the scenery...

Hi Folks,

    This will be short one, it is late and we have to start back in the morning.   We had our test with Jeremy it went well, he saw no issues that needed to be corrected.

    After we finished at the mall, we went back to 4 Paws to do paperwork.  While Deanna did paperwork, I gave Honor a bath.  We spent of 45 minutes drying him.
