we didn’t get many trick-or-treaters this year. i wonder what, if anything, that means. probably nothing, since kris and i hid most of the time. neither one of us is in the mood. why’s that? well, can you guess one of the side effects of giving phenobarbitol for canine epilepsy? that’s right. polyurea, or – more colloquially – “excessive urination”. and when you’re inside all day that excessive urination has to go somewhere. with everything else going on, i don’t think it has fully set in just how much harper’s epilepsy is going to affect our lives, if it’s not brought under control.
