She's currently under a vets care but I'm trying to get more

She's currently under a vets care but I'm trying to get more info on how to help her more. She has some type of autoimmune problem which has caused her spleen to take up almost her entire abdomen, she's on steroids and antibiotics (just started her 2nd month) She initially presented at the vet as lethargic and large abdomen, blood tests indicated her platelets were very low (9) and she had to have several blood transfusions, after being off her meds after taking them for a month, she started having mild seizures and her blood levels which the previous week were at 34, had dropped to 19, she has been back on her meds for 4 days now and her seizures are getting worse and she is now on Phenobarbital and valium (since Monday) in addition to her other meds, but the seizures do not seem to be improving.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?Customer: Her red blood cells have started to increase and as of yesterday she was up to 24, but her seizures seem to be less frequent but worse.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: The only thing they can detect with all their tests is that they think her immune system is attacking her spleen, her bone marrow is showing normal production of blood cells but after a month on the steroids and antibiotics its only minimally decreased in size. And my vet doesnt' know what to do, we are just monitoring at this point.

Standard poodle has stopped shaking his head (wants to, half starts, then stops like it hurts). ["shaking head" as part of what dogs normally do to shake their whole body]. Also panting a lot more than normal. Not as spunky as usual. Extra bad breath.NOTE: He had a splenectomy 2 weeks ago due to ruptured spleen/hematoma. Pathology showed benign tumors. Gradual decrease of tramadol/gabapentin to stopping on Friday. Vet follow-up last week, including pack red blood cell test showed marked improvement. Above symptoms could be totally unrelated, but thought I should mention it.
