Dr. Young checked Max's eye as well and said it looked like it was healing well. He could see through the cloudy scar tissue in his eye. He's doing well with his eye drops and anti-biotic ointment. He goes back to the eye doctor for a re-check next week,
Dr. Young suggested switching Max over to Keppra. He was prescribed 500mg 3x day. The problem with this dose was that we gave Max his dose at 6pm and he did not wake up until 3AM the next day. Not even for dinner, or breakfast or to go out! I couldn't even get his 2nd and 3rd doses in. The next day I tried 250mg at night and he went out again and woke up to eat breakfast and then went back to sleep and around 1pm got up - very groggy, went potty, ate something, took a short walk, then another 250mg and he was out again until the next morning.. At this time, I'm hoping that he builds up some sort of tolerance to Keppra. The positives of the Keppra are that he is not nauseous, his poops are solid, he doesn't seem very agitated, especially if I can get him out for a good walk in the afternoon. He will sleep through the night.

So Ms. Buttercup spent the rest of the night locked in Tom's office. She has yet to apologize to Max. Max seems to be fine today. Normally Buttercup is a lovely girl... like the rest of us though, she doesn't like to be stepped on or have someone fall on her in the middle of the night while she's sleeping, regardless of whether they can see or hear and especially not if they are drunk!
