ex machina

harper's epilepsy is getting bad enough that it might be time to take him in to be euthanized. he had another seizure last night, after only going seven days seizure free. before that he had 4 seizures over eight days. his motor abilities and disorientation are getting worse in the post ictal phase. mauja is getting more and more upset at harper's seizures and it's possible that he'll do something to harper if he has a seizure and nobody is home. and to make matters worse, he has started to vigorously shake his head after a seizure as if he's trying to get water out of his ear. he did it continuously last night from midnight until 5:30a.m. the vet has pretty much said that there's nothing more that they can do and that more he has seizures, the more he'll have seizures.

somehow, i guess i need to bring myself to take harper to the vet tommorrow, which is such a shame for a dog so young.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
