    Knutes Pam

      Knute had low blood counts after radiation of his lung tumor in April.  Knut is on an anti seizure med currently– Keppra  it was given after ER visit with what they think was an optical seizure narrowing of vision to a tunnel and "swirling" in the peripheral vision.  He has had nothing like it since surgery in July.  Is Buddy suffering from seizures currently?   If not I guess I would watch for any signs and use that as a guide to what might be happening in the brain.  

      Great to hear of no major side effects!
