My Rat had a stroke :(

on wednesday night my baby girl anneliese was acting funny she doesnt like to held she likes to be left alone but when we got her out of her cage she was very very limp and was bleeding from some where. i thought she was dying i started crying my daughter started crying we took her upstairs to my bed, after we were up there for a little bit, she started trembling and her tail went straight up in the air, she had a sezuire and that is when i found where the blood was coming from, her nose and it was in her urine. i didnt think she was going to make it through the night, but she did!!!! so the next morning i took her to the vet and he said she either had a stroke or a inner ear infection (the symptoms are the same) we put her on an antibioc. today is now saterday, she is having her good moments and her bad ones but all in all i think she is going to pull through!!! she is only 1 yr and 5 months old. but i give her the medicine twice a day and we will have to wait and see how she does...... i am going to try to upload a video i took of her for everyone to see. i love my rats sooooo much i dont know what i am going to do when god decides it is her time to go

i can't wait to see the video, i have seen inner ear infections, stroke and PT too many times and might have a better idea of what is going on with the video.
