Sawyer's Promise


I promise I am not taking over the blog, but Mom wanted me to present our Spark today. At 3:20 a.m. yesterday, I had another seizure that would not stop. I’m too tired to give you all the details, but I did end up at the emergency vet. It took a lot more medicine (including propofol) to get my seizure under control this time. That was my third grand mal seizure in 11 days. Now I have two shaved legs. Not my best look.

I only stayed at emergency for six hours this time and am resting at home, as you can see in my photo. I suspect another adjustment will be made to my meds.

But I promise I will not give up, and I will try my very hardest not to let my mom and dad or any of you down.

Today’s Spark is from Sir Harry Kroto (Harold Walter Krotoschiner), a British chemist, who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1996. He also was the recipient of many other honors and awards. Kroto, who promoted science education and was critical of religious faith, died in 2006 at the age of 76.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie has been taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Unfortunately, during this break, Annie has been the victim of a hacker. This has continued to keep her off-line and caused her much distress. Kitties Blue and I ask for your continued prayers for Annie and her family as they try to reconcile this mess and get their lives back to normal.

Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”

Awww Mondays

Purrs and paw-pats, Sawyer

Sawyer, we are glad you are not giving up, sweet pal. Know that we are purring and praying, and sending you and your family lots of love and all good thoughts.

Sawyer, you are constantly in our purrs and prayer. You are such a strong, determined trouper. You’ve never let any of us down, and you never could. I constantly hope and pray that the perfect cocktail of medications for your seizures will be found and will keep them at bay, as your parents and veterinarian of course hope, too. Seizures sure don’t make things easy, do they? I know you’ve mentioned CBD oil and that you are considering it. I will throw out there that one of the local rescue groups in my area uses it for anxious dogs and cats in transition. If I’m remembering correctly, they once used it on a dog with seizures, and it worked wonders for him. Many, many purrs and prayers!

Awww, sweetie, you could never let us down. I hope the vets get your meds adjusted so you stop having seizures.

Stephanie B March 5, 2019 at 9:05 am

Sometimes life just really sucks … but it’s always worth the fight. By the way, I don’t know if you heard on Facebook, but we have another content scraper who has a lot of your posts. Since most of your recent posts have been about Sawyer, I did a search using his name and this is what came up … I’m pretty sure there’s more.

We’re sorry you’re having those seizures still, Sawyer. We’re hoping the vets figure out how to make you all better. Sending you extra purrs and prayers.

I feel so bad that you have to go through all that, Sawyer. I wish I had advice to give. I can only hope you get better.

Oh Sawyer, I am sorry your awful seizures continue so regularly. You are not letting anyone down, we all love you.
I hope another adjustment to your meds helps you so they are not as severe or frequent. Lots of love to you, and to your mum and dad too.

Oh my, Sawyer. We are sending lots of prayers for your quick recover and that changes in your medications, up or down, will bring you comfort and stability, as well as easing the worry for your family.
Healing purrs,
ERin & Mrs H
