Chester

Chester made it 5 1/2 weeks since his last seizure, before he had one today.  This is the longest he has gone since this whole thing started in the middle of July last year.  I was not home, so don’t know how long it lasted, but it seems that the recovery time was fairly quick.  He did not seem agitated when he broke into the basement and woke Angela up.  She said that he just seemed a little slow.  There was no garbage to get into and he didn’t eat the cat food.

He went upstairs with her when she went to have her shower and was just lying on the floor when she finished.  He didn’t go back downstairs with her and was still upstairs when I got home a little later.  He didn’t come down until I called him and he was very slow and cautious coming down, but otherwise seemed fine.

I found a wet spot in the living room and some slobber on my computer desk.

He had a blood test scheduled for today, so we went and did that and will get the results probably next week.

It would be nice if we could get him completely seizure free, but if he can always go this long between seizures, we can live with it.

It is a sunny day today, so we went in the back yard for a couple of pictures.

Since we’re taking a quick holiday from my holiday in Europe, we’d better check out Africam too.  Of course, I still check that out and watch the cams daily anyway, but so far today, we have seen Elephants, Impala, Zebra, Nyala, Wildebeest, Bald Eagles (with 2 eggs), Egyptian Geese with goslings, Waterbuck, woolly-necked Stork and Hadeda Ibis.  Click here to see all of today’s pictures.

One day soon, I will be there in person.  🙂

Chester and I had our usual walk along the Red River this morning.  We saw the usual snow and ice with an occasional crow flying by.  It looks like they have made a rink or a trail along the river – not sure if that is just for the Festival du Voyageur that is coming up in February, or if it is in substitution for the normal skating rink (loop) that usually is built on the Assiniboine River.  I notice there is nothing on the Assiniboine this year from the Forks.  With the mild winter we have had, I’m not sure I would want to venture onto the ice at all.  The Festival usually has snow sculptures, but there simply isn’t enough snow to build even one.  I really don’t mind that I haven’t had to shovel any snow this winter.  🙂
