Hi friends, it's been a very rough few days as my beloved dog Kobicha has suffered from cluster seizures and had to be hospitalized for two days. After his first seizure, the hope was that he either wouldn't have another or he would have regular seizures every few months. Unfortunately, the escalation to cluster seizures makes this an entirely different situation. His seizures are incredibly horrible to watch, he sometimes starts with a focal seizure but always goes into a full seizure, all of what you expect from a seizure include losing control of his bladder and bowels. Afterwards, he is blind and extremely disoriented. He's now been seizure free since 11ish on Friday night (yay!) but adjusting to his new medication is an intense process. It makes him extremely sedate, anxious, and he has a lot of trouble walking and maneuvering at all. This will be a lifelong health challenge. While I have money saved up for emergencies for him, he blew through that in one day. Unfortunately, any medical costs for his pre-existing condition would not be covered by pet insurance so we can't go that route either (Obamacare for pets, please!!). I don't want to ask you all to help, but I'm putting my ego to the side and prioritizing his health. Recouping some of the costs from the last few days and cutting costs in other areas of my life will make it feasible for me to manage the next time he has a cluster that requires hospitalization (because unfortunately, there will be a next time). Please consider donating or sharing to his GoFundMe (link is in my bio). And even if you can't donate, please send healing energy his way! Sweet Kobicha Boy should not being go through this traumatic process. He is a light, and all who know me know that I love him dearly (I mean, he has own insta, ha). We have a long road ahead of us and I'm taking it hour by hour while we get through the adjustment period with these meds and then adjust to our new normal. Thank you all for reading and considering donatin
