Phew, I am so dang tired. I was sick for about a week. No Thanksgiving meal here, which I'm sure was for the best. Just started to feel slightly normal on Monday, and planned to start the exercise routine again. Monday night one of my cats started to use his litter box literally every couple of minutes and by Tues morning there was blood mixed in. I know all about male feline UTIs and they are nothing to mess around with, so I got him to the vet first thing Tues. Vet kept him for the day to get a urine sample and we went back in the evening to pick him up along with 3 meds and we'd get the labs in the morning. Vet said we should see an improvement in 24 hours with the meds.
There was no improvement, so back to the vet yesterday where they did a catheter, an ultrasound, and emptied/flushed his bladder. They kept him overnight.
Last night was the first night I slept more than 3 hours in weeks. I'm so run-down from being sick and from the stress from not knowing if my cat was going to be ok. I wish I could just go to bed and stay there for about a week!
I have no idea what my weight is now. I'm not getting on the scale again until I get back on track with eating and the exercise routine I was doing. If there's been a gain I don't need to know about it right now. It won't be a positive experience and I really need to build my strength back up both physically and emotionally.
Here's hoping for a break in the "action" (as it were) so I can get my energy back and get moving in the right direction.
