Earlier and he was really scared. Seems he didn't see her out there and he was welding and she started seizing. She was under the welder. I guess she wet herself and he was pretty shook up. I took her from him and checked her over, her legs seemed kind of weak (she does have arthritis and weakness in them) and laid her on the loveseat. He sat next to her stroking her, I know he felt really bad, like it was his fault. He thought the sparks from the welding may have brought it on. I was thinking heat stroke.
I got the can of tuna from the fridge that I had opened up earlier this week and she was pretty hungry. Brian ended up taking it away from her because he didn't want her to eat too much and throw up. I gave her fluids, she was due and now she's up in the family room window sleeping soundly. I checked her a while ago, she's alert and she was following my fingers, so I don't think there was any damage to her eyes. I may be stepping up her fluids, though, to every other day, not just twice a week. It's possible her kidneys are finally starting to get worse. She is twenty-one years old, no spring chicken.
