Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to me!!!
Six weeks seizure-free!!!

Now THAT is something to celebrate!  I honestly don't know why she's been seizure-free for so long.  It's the longest stretch she's ever had (5 1/2 weeks was the previous record and that was back when she first started having seizures - about 1.5 years ago now.  Maybe it's her diet?  Or the season change?  Her allergies have been better lately too, which I suspect is seasonal.  Or maybe still related to the increase in Phenobarbital a few months ago?  Who knows.  Everything about epilepsy seems like a bit of a crap-shoot sometimes. Regardless, I'm not complaining.  And I'm trying not to hold my breath for too long waiting for the next one...

So while I can't explain it, it's probably the best Christmas present I could get!

Iris says she'd rather have the present hidden under tree since waiting until tomorrow could take FOREVER!

Just in case you haven't seen enough of the red dog today...  The company I work for makes virtual tours out of 360 degree panoramas.  Every year they take a pano of the entire staff to send to clients as a Holiday Card.  This year's card was shot during our the Holiday party:

I'm also certain that Iris wishes we had parties at work more often.  I know she was getting plenty of handouts from my coworkers, but it's only once a year so everyone should get to enjoy themselves!  Even crazy dogs.
