Default Seizure and/or Liver Disease- Please help!

Hi everyone! I just found this forum while researching some health issues my Morkie has been having. I am really hoping some of you can offer some advice and/or information. My nightmare began about 3 months ago.

First about my Pup:
He's a 3yr old Morkie, named CRUZ- He's very much ALL yorkie. Hyper & Sweet and smiles too! Thinks he's the boss of the neighborhood! He loves to cuddle, play, his mommy, and treats. He's very well behaved, with the occasional sock hiding game under my bed. He was completely trained in 2 months -smart boy! Never bites, but loves to bark and act tough!

Health: Up until about 3 months ago he was in perfect health! Never an issue, never an unplanned trip to the vet. Takes heartworm and gets his frontline monthly! July my little man experienced his first seizure. Did not last more then 2 mins, soiled the bed. Post seizure: very larthargic, confused, loss of vision (only a couple seconds- he bumped into the wall). I immediately brought him to the vet. By this time, he was starting to act like himself. The vet ran some blood test to make sure everything was normal so they could make sure nothing was causeing the seizure. Unfortunately, blood test came back abnormal with liver enzymes. A couple days later they administered a Bile Acid Test. His scores were Pre:3 & Post:29. Not too bad on the post result, I guess they should be <25. Out vet didnt seem too worried and said we could test again in 8 weeks. On 10/18, Cruz had another seizure. Between 2-2.5 mins. Last week they did another bile acid test and this time his scores were Pre:29 and Post:58. Out vet has now recommended we see a specialist to get an ultrasound for a possible liver shunt.

I've been doing way too much research (keeping me up all hours of the night) and for what I am seeing his levels would be much higher if he had a Liver Shunt but could possible be have HMD. I don't really know too much about this disease or any! Anyone out there with a similar experience? We see the specialist Thursday for an ultrasound! However, my wiggly guy might not be the best patient for that.

Please help! My morkie is my baby! (Sorry for the novel)
