    boy did I screw up

    We have a 14 yo cat that is on anti-seizure medication. We mail order it & it usually gets here overnight. Well, it didn't this time & I had waited so long to order it that we are out. Having to try to get a substitute for tonight. It's bad enough that I screwed up but when I apologized to hubby he can't even say "it's ok." to make me feel better. She had a seizure last week that I didn't catch (he was out walking the dog) so I feel bad enough about that & now this. Just want to crawl in a hole & hide.
    Sorry, just need to get that off my chest.

    Oh no! I hope the both of you survive the night without incident and that you came up with a substitute.

    We got human Keppra tablets, crushed them & put them in chicken gravy. We'll see if it works. Can't get the exact dosage as the compounded stuff but close. She didn't fight it anymore than she does the other stuff. Just doesn't like me squirting stuff in her mouth. Can't say I blame her.

    Hopefully, it will be here. If not, we have enough tablets for several days.

    How did the both of you handle the night? Has she had any seizures?

    She did fine. No seizures. It's a pain having to quarter an oblong tablet & crush it fine enough to mix with the gravy but it does seem to be working. Hopefully, the regular medicine will get here today. Thank you for asking & caring.
