Pardon my bed head, I do want to thank you for all the care, concern and love during my recent Vet trip and the after party. Well, I thought calling it a party might lighten things up a bit. I probably should have called it an after potty. For those who may have missed it, I will fill you in on what happened.
I went to see my Internal Medicine Vet on Monday, I dislike the car ride but all was pretty normal, I meowed and Dad drove. We got there a wee bit early so we waited a few minutes and went to check in. We didn’t wait too long and then we were escorted to one of the exam rooms. The Vet Tech came in and greeted me and Dad too. Dad told her we were extremely nervous because of what happened the last time my Sister Dolly, now Angel Dolly, was there for her exam. She said she totally understood and that memory would be forever etched in her mind too.
Anyways, she took me in the back and my Doctor gave me an exxam, stole some of my blood and some of my pee. She then took me back to my Dad. After a short chat we were headed home again. Pretty easy, right? Well, after about two hours of being home the Pee Wars attacked and I went to the litter box to pee or try to pee nine times in an hour or so. Not good.
I’m thankful my Dad is usually prepared, we had pain meds and pee meds in his magic medicine box and started me on them immediately. Those are the meds I worked so hard to get away from, but I sure needed them now. Dad sent a message to my Internal Medicine Vet that he was going to take me to the Emergency Center. She called and said that it sounded like I was having an Idiopathic Cystitis flare up and that another long drive and long wait might make it worse. She recommend that Dad continue the treatment he started and that I would likely improve soon, if not then we could go to the Emergency Center. She didn’t see any signs from my unianalysis to indicate a blockage of any kind. I’m also thankful she called twice to triage with my Dad.
Later Monday night I started feeling better and the need to go to the litter box lessened. The next day I was feeling better although with those meds I’m once again stoned. I’m now weaning off of those meds again and I’m most thankful that I’m feeling better again .
Now, about my blood work. I’m thankful that the results were mostly good. Because of my illness I had a very high white blood count but it dramatically decreased this time, just a smidge away from the normal range. I’m still Stage 2 CKD, although the numbers did increase to mid-to-high Stage 2. We’ll be trying really hard to keep my numbers stable. Everything else was really, really good and I’m thankful for that too.
Okay, that’s it for now, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
