Today I wanted to get him back on his old keppra schedule so I waited until late afternoon to give him his 125mg. He was much more alert than I've seen him in a while. He had his last 125mg of Keppra at 11pm and around 11AM he started to chase #2 when he was playing with a squeeky football and he even tried to nip at him and herd him! Rex was flinging stuffed animals by Max and Max went over and tried to join in for a minute.. Then Rex body slammed Max (He has a bad habit of body slamming everyone - he really does think he's the King of the world). This is the best part! Max was not going to have any of it and actually jumped Rex, growling and teeth out and nipped at him and told him to back off! Max went for a ride in the car and did well. He was able to stop the constant movement and run into the kitchen when he heard someone in there so he could see if there was food to be had. He was sniffing things outside in the garden, coming when called, sitting when asked, checking to see what everyone was doing and even came over for a few snuggles! - pretty normal. The only thing he did that drove me nuts today was step in his water bowl and flip it 4 times (so far) today. I have now moved it and hopefully he won't do it again in it's new place.. He's even been able to come in for a landing and lie down and just sit and watch things vs. pacing and then passing out.
I did give him his keppra at 5:30.. and he fell asleep right before dinner! Something I haven't seen in a LONG time! He did wake up and got upset he had been forgotten - but did eat his dinner and then helped Rex finish off Buttercups dinner (which probably means we have another issue to deal with - she doesn't normally NOT eat)

So he's been moving constantly since he finished dinner (7:30 until now 9pm) and just lay down to zonk out. I'm hoping he will get up, go potty, go to bed and then stay asleep without pacing for the rest of the night... It would be nice to be back to normal. I'm beginning to believe that this has been tied more to the keppra than anything else. I was worried yesterday and this AM. I'll still be watching carefully the next week or so, but hopefully we'll keep seeing improvement! and Hopefully Buttercup is ok!
