Sorry we have not been around to visit you and we likely won’t be visiting too much until our house full of sickies gets better and Gracie gets home. Dad has been reading your blogs so we know what is happening. We were so sad to see that dear Tillie left for the Rainbow Bridge.
Now about Gracie. Dad just talked to the Emergency Vet a few minutes ago. Gracie’s respiration rate has improved a good bit but she has still had a couple of coughing and gagging episodes. They have decreased the frequency of broncodialators to once every 8 hours and have given her oral antibiotics. They are trying to get her to eat some wet food but so far she has just licked around at it. It has been several days since she had a good meal so they are going to give her an appetite stimulant and some fluids so she won’t dehydrate. She is not better enough to come home today so we will reassess tomorrow.
Other updates: Brian is sneezing and on antibiotics, Sascha is still sneezing and on antibiotics, Dolly has started sneezing so she is now on antibiotic, Precious is sneezing and has a temperature so she is on antibiotics and NSAIDs to help with the fever/achey stuff. So far Zoe and Kit are okay. Dad and Mom are pooped.
Dad will call a couple of times this evening to check on Gracie so we might post an update tonight. If we don’t post that means that things are pretty much the same. Please keep the purrs and prayers coming our way. Thanks dear friends.
