So sorry to hear about Noel. My chins Maureen and Muad'dib (mother and son) both have idiopathic epilepsy. It is so hard when they have seizures, because there is nothing you can do, and they really have no idea what is going on. All you can do is make her comfortable. I find Maureen likes a dust bath after a seizure, then a snack, and then takes a long nap. And there is nothing wrong with picking them up while they have a seizure. It allows you to limit their movement and can be reassuring.
How old is Noel? Maureen and Muad'dib both started having seizures around 6-9 months with the frequency peaking around 12-18 months of age. Then Maureen went almost 3 years without a seizures. Now they have an episode from time to time.
In May, Muad'dib had a very bad episode wherein he had seizures every couple of minutes for more than 2 hours. Blood work the next day showed that one of his liver enzymes was very high and comparison to his mother's bloodwork after a similar bout of seizures showed less elevated levels. It is not certain whether the liver enzyme imbalance causes the seizures or whether the stress on the body from prolonged seizures messes up the liver enzyme levels. My vet recommended treatment with milk thistle. I am doing it for three months and then am going to have repeat bloodwork done.
If you get bloodwork done and you want to compare notes, PM me and I will share some of the values with you. My vet also furnished me with a list of 'standard' values. Don't know exactly what they were based on, but the values from both vets for 'average' agree pretty well.
Good luck. There is hope. Oh, and two other potential causes for epilepsy, nutritional deficiency and hormone changes from pregnancy. (Incidentally, while pregnant and nursing, Maureen had no problems. In fact, she was so healthy I didn't even know about her little and highly inprobably suprize until a few days before he was born.)
