- January 15, 2007 - Bodhi experienced a seizure at 5:07pm. I heard him fall over in the kitchen. By the time I reached him, he was in the early stages of a seizure. At first he seemed aware of me. As I approached him, he turned his head toward me. The seizure rapidly progressed to his entire body affecting all four limbs. His mouth began foaming halfway through the episode, which lasted about a minute. This may have been the worst seizure I have witnessed Bodhi experience. Also, it was not associated with waking up. He had just come inside from running around outside. After the seizure he had some problems with coordination in his posterior limbs.
