Mary just started drinking water like crazy and then vomiting and she didn't stop vomiting. It was like all her life force was draining out of her it was really awful. I was really stupid too because it didn't dawn on me right away to take away the water. If she ever acts too hungry or too thirsty i know an attack is coming on. SHe will have the runs with her minor episodes. Her first attack was all stomach loss and not bowel. IT is scary but once you know how to manage the diet it gets easier. Catching it early is everything.

Losing goodies i think is the hardest part for her. She is a live to eat kinda girl. Since she is fully deaf now it is easier to sneak the other two a bite without her knowing it. I do put a very small amount of broth or a little sprinkle of parmasean cheese on her food so she can think she is having something special. A taste is better then nothing at all.
I am glad yours was not as bad as Mary's. SHe is so old that i thought whatever it was it was going to take her away from me. WE have been managing now for over a year.
