Default Latest on Biscuit

Hello Team Biscuit! :-) I got tied up in a key project at work so I have not been able to update everyone.

We are now looking at possibly taking Biscuit home today Sunday 12/15/12. He was suppose to be discharge yesterday but they we got a call that the doctor made a minor oversight and gave Biscuit an overdose of Phenobarbital which is why they thinks he's being so unsteady and un responsive. So they immediately increase the Steroids dosage to help stabelize him. I understand that sometime minor mistake like this could happen but it didn't go well with Ann at all.

Secondly I am started to have more concern about the treatment methods and whether it is the right combination that will help our boy. I'm getting addtional opinion and one that is highly recommended to us was to consult with a Dr. Allen Sissen, supposedly one of the top Animal Neurologist based out of the Boston MA area. We're gathering data to have a thorough consultation visit with him as we speak and he is recommending that we'll fly out to Boston with Biscuit so he can better assess the situation and determine the appropriate treatment. Base on the initial information we've provided to Dr. Sissen, he said the steroids dosage being administered is too low and not agressive enough to help Biscuit and that Biscuit could be at a critical stage that needs immediately response with the correct medication dosage. Hearing this from Dr. Sissen is now highly concerning me and I'm making plan to probably head out to see him as early as Tuesday 12/18/12.

I am so glad you are taking Biscuit to Dr. Sisson. He's the best in his field.

Vinh, I was hopeful Pam would jump in as she is well-versed in this kind of critical care.
I concur w/what I know that Dr. Sissen is your BEST bet. I know that Sammie (SM user name: Piccolina) used him too w. good success although she lost her baby in the end due to a choking hazard rather than the illness. She was seeing good results. She flew w/her baby & met w/Dr. Sissen. You may want to PM her---she is also in CA.
I know Ann must be near the edge, and with good reason! Give her a big hug from me & know that you remain faithfully in my prayers.

Vinh and Ann. So sorry that happened....you can deal with that later but at this point taking him to Boston to the specialist is great. Hugs to you, Ann and sweet Biscuit. I really believe once all is stabilized he can live life with his Mommy and Daddy. Please keep us posted.
