Hello everyone, here we are in October already, I told you it was coming pretty darn quick. Hey, several of you said that I looked a bit pensive or tired in my Sunday Selfie yesterday. Well, you were correct, probably on both counts. Saturday afternoon I developed a strange sounding cough and since I’m an elder, off to the emergency clinic we went.
The Doctor and the staff there were really nice and they saw me right away. With us elders they worry about heart problems so I had to have xrays and bloodwork. The bloodwork included special tests to check my heart. The good news is the xrays were normal and the bloodwork, including that with my heart indicators was normal too.
There was some unexpected good news. You might recall that I’m not only an IBD kitty, I’m a Chronic Kidney Disease kitty too. So, the good news is that my kidney numbers are now in the normal range. How about that?!?! I was given some antibiotics on the outside chance that I have a respiratory thing going on. But, I had a bad reaction to that and threw up everything I ate plus it gave me loose poops. So, no more of that for me.
After we got home the Dad was finally able to get a video of my cough. The Doctor said it was a reverse sneeze kind of thing and the Dad went and picked up some medicine that goes in my nose. It’s not fun but I’m good with taking it. So far I’ve been able to keep my food down and that’s a good thing.
If that wasn’t enough, you know we have that high landing up at the top of the stairs and it’s a ways down. Saturday morning Maxwell went through the upper rails and fell down to the hardwood floor. It sure made quite a loud thump. We though maybe Maxwell broke his back left leg because he was limping. But it resolved quickly and he seems totally fine now. Wasn’t that a fun weekend? NOT!
