Lance not much better

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Yesterday at the vet they put him on valium which the vet says always makes them eat so he ate a little. they also put him on iv fluids with vitamins and minerals. they did xrays and ekg. His one kidney is swollen and his heart is large. also his blood pressure is really high so they gave him blood pressure meds. The doctors are still somewhat stumped. He does have an infection as well that they are treating him for. So my kitty has a lot of issues. He really can't stand or walk. I am taking him back to the vet for one more overnight to see if they can bring him back. the doctors aren't ready to give up on him but this isn't any quality of life for him. Poor baby. But he did talk to me this morning and purred when cuddled. So it's so hard to know what the right thing to do is.
Thank you all for your positive thoughts and prayer for us. We need them!

Today my DH is driving me to Guadalajara for a follow up appointment with my autoimmune doctor. I have been doing well so this is just a follow up. It will be a long day though as the appointment isn't until 4:30. It takes about 1 and half hour to get to her office. Anyway, my DH is a great driver and seems to know where we are going.

Hope all of you are doing great.
Have a terrific day.
Sallie

    Ah, Sallie... I am so sorry to hear that poor Lancelot is still so very ill. You have surely done everything within your power to get him better... emoticon My heart goes out to you right now...

You have such a good attitude, and yet you've had some tremendous struggles with your own health as of late, too. I hope all goes well and encouragingly when you see the autoimmune doctor. Please keep us posted...

    Hoping the follow-up includes some affirmation that a concrete plan is in place so you stay healthy. This autoimmune 'stuff' is often like a mystery novel that keeps forgetting to stick to the plot. Glad DH is with you!!

So sorry poor Lance is still doing poorly...

    emoticon I hope he kicks it into high gear. It is so hard with cats because they can't tell us what they are feeling.
