Still not out of the WOODS !!!

Thursday, April 11, 2013



I keep praying for my kitty. She is doing better, but she looks fragile after the liver issue popped up. She is still taking longer naps than normal. When she sleeps, it seems like she is hard to wake up. I know the vet said it would take time, I just wish she was fully recovered. Hopefully she makes a full recovery. Her mom is still worried. Yes, she is still on her medication. She is to be on it for a month or longer. The herbal tincture I ordered made for cats of milk thistle has not arrived. GRR. It's coming Fed Ex. They gave me a delivery date of the 17. It's crazy it's taking two weeks to come across the US and they charged me a high rate. Sigh.



I keep giving her the high calorie supplement as she is very skinny. She won't eat cheese like she would before she got sick. It has me worried. . . You know something isn't quite right even though she is healing.



Today I did JNL fusion workout 2. My strength isn't the greatest due to MS, so I break up the workout in to short sparks, resting when needed and then pressing on until I complete it. It seemed like it took me a long time, but one day I will be able to do the whole thing through. I will persist. Sparks are OK.



Today I drank a quart of fresh juice made from apples, cucumbers, wheat grass, bell pepper, pineapple, grapes. YUM.





Hi the recipe for the juice makes about 3 quarts. I used a 3 pound bag of cheap apples like fuji or pink lady, about a cup or two of grapes, 1-2 cucumbers, a stalk of celery, wheat grass juice (I grow and juice my own, you can leave out and substitute spinach or parsley) pineapple 1-2 cups, 1 red bell pepper. My favorite apple is pink lady as it is sweet tart and is crisp. I used red grapes. The pineapple is fresh, but canned might work in a pinch or leave it out. Pineapple seems to cut the wheat grass taste to make it tolerable. When you juice greens for the first time don't add a ton, you have to let your taste buds adapt to the flavor. Gradually over several months I have worked my way up to drinking a cup of wheat grass juice. Now that I am up to that much my energy is improving a lot.

Last night I forced fed my kitty as we did not see her eating all day. She felt hot, feverish again. She slept most of the day. She doesn't seem herself again. She doesn't have the energy to clean herself. We continue to giver her the supplement the vet gave up. We are praying.

    Keep doing your best! I hope she pulls through.

Just an aside, as sick as she has been expect her to need to sleep a lot more. It has been 14 months since I had life and death surgery and I never napped before. So here I am a human and I am not awake more than 8-10 hours a day. So she is newly in a life and death situation , so watch her body temp and feed but give her a break about sleeping. Assuming all animals are similar, her body is using the sleep time to repair.

    You want to call and ask the vet if you should continue to force feed. It may be that you need to continue that even after she starts eating on her own a little. Hope tomorrow is better.

    Many, many prayers to you and your kitty. It sounds like your baby has made it thru the most critical part.....I pray that is so anyway. What is the amount of each item that you use for your fruit juice? I'd like to try that. Do you happen to have a recipe that you could give me?

Give your kittie a hug for me, and give yourself a hug from me too. Ok?

Hugs to you.

    emoticon Keeping your situation as a whole in prayer, both for kitty and for your exercises. Don't give up on the exercises, it takes time but you can greatly increase your abilities a little at a time. And with the MS you don't want to overstress your body so sparks are great.
Be sure to check with the vet about the milkweed thistle tincture. It may not be so good for her with her liver in trouble.

    I'm still continuing to keep your kitty in my thoughts and sending lots of positive healing thoughts her way. I hope that the herbal tincture will get to you sooner than the 17th and that soon your kitty will be back to her normal self. Just keep watching her and doing everything you possibly can for her. It's just going to take some time for her liver and body to heal.

Great job on your exercising. Doing as much as you possibly can and then pausing isn't a bad thing. You'll get to where you can do the whole thing without pausing some day. emoticon

    Sleep is a way of recuperating-don't wake her.
As for Fed-Ex they ALWAYS give LONG arrival times. They usually only really take 3-4 business days.

    What did the vet say about the milkweed thistle. My husband took it when he started having serious liver problems and it nearly killed him. Apparently its good for a healthy liver but for a stressed one, it was very nearly lethal (humans). Who knows about cats. Also, we heal when we sleep, maybe you shouldn't wake her up..

    I love my two Cockatoos like you love your cat. So I've been following the progress every day. I'd be upset at the thistle taking that long when you ordered it fed ex. I really hope she will be okay.

    Hope she gets better and you are right about it taking so long with Fed-ex, it should not take that long. Most delivery's are in about three days
