He was fine when I got home last night and pretty much normal albeit a little lazy. This morning he was his normal "I am going to bug the living heck out of you until you give me as many cookies as I can eat until you walk out the door to work".

He goes to A&M tomorrow / Thursday to get his staples removed and an Adaquan injection and blood work to check on his platelets. We will see what they say about his episode yesterday.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He has been doing fantastic since his surgery 2 weeks ago to redo his internal incision from the spleenectomy in January. Also all ultrasound, xray, and echocardiogram showed no cancer metastisizing at that time. The only place they did not look was the brain but did not feel they needed to.

I was in the bathroom getting ready for work this morning and he was on the floor as he normally is just hanging out after he had breakfast. Nothing unusual. I little scratching of his chin and just hanging. Then he got up and slowly walked into my master bedroom closet which is off the bathroom. I asked him where he was going because he never goes in there unless I do. He went straight for a far corner and went under my clothes and curled up and layed down. I went in and told him he knew he was not supposed to be in there to come and he just layed there. I asked him if he wanted a cookie and "nothing" no reaction. I ran and "got" a cookie and put it in front of him "nothing". Now I am panicking big time. He is staring like he can't see with squinty eyes. I tried to pull him out of the corner and he tried to get up but fell back down. I then got a blanket and rolled him onto it and dragged him through the bathroom, my bedroom, and out into the family room. He layed on his side and seemed to be comfortable. His gums seemed pink and breathing ok. After about 10 minutes I thought he was going to start snoring :) then I layed next to him and started to pet him and he did a big old on his side stretch so I am thinking he has got to be ok. Half hour later I opened the refrig door and took out his bag of special cookies and I hear him getting up and around the corner he comes wanting a cookie....geeesh.

I wonder if he had a seizure? He had some back about 3 years ago but he would tremble when he had them. He did not seize up this time.

I hope it was a seizure.....much better than a tumor bleed but I would not expect a tumor bleed as they could not see anything going on 2 weeks ago.

and............SU is out of town of course. I went into work about 9:00 and ran home at 1:00 and checked him and he seemed ok.

Nothing like getting your heart jump started first thing in the morning.

Whatever it was, and would have to agree with your thinking it not being a tumor bleed, I hope it never happens again.

Oh no, Tank (and you). I'd be panicking too if it happened to one of mine (just because). I hope he is feeling better and your heart started beating again.

Re: Tankie Had a Collapse This Morning

What a worry for you :( As I was reading your post I was thinking maybe a seizure? All things considered I'm hoping it was one rather then anything else.

Aw, Sandie. For all he has endured, maybe he just needed to "womb up" a little bit. Darkness, mommy smells from the closet, quiet. Just a retreat into his own comfort zone.

All the love, darlin. All the love!

I wonder if he had a small stroke. Maybe a blood clot broke lose and hit his brain. They are called TIA's in humans (transient ischemic attacks)

I'm glad that it passed quickly, and I hope that it doesn't happen again. I hope that both of you are recovering nicely, because I know that that would take the wind out of my sails. (((Hugs)))

Re: Tankie Had a Collapse This Morning

When I saw the title to the thread my heart stopped. I'm glad he seems to be ok and I hope it was just a mild seizure. I never thought I would say that. I would have been shook too...Good thoughts and a prayer for you and Tankie.

Poor Tank - he obviously wasn't feeling well and looking for a cool secure spot - at least that is what I think he did by going into your closet. Sure hope it doesn't happen again.
