I'm so proud of my kitty. She's taking meds, holding still for fluid treatments most of the time, and gaining some weight. I'm keeping her in one room for now, because I need to know what's going in and what's coming out (and we have another cat), but she seems comfy and is always happy to see me (even on some level she must know I'm about to stick a needle into her).
There's so much that's not in our control. But for these weeks, however long it lasts, I am able to take care of her and help her improve. The vet wants to check her blood values again. Grrrrgh. There's a slim chance that an infection was affecting the values adversely, and by treating the infection, the values may improve and the situation may not be as dire as we thought. I'm willing to pursue that theory and see it through with the antibiotics.
Thank you so much! I know you understand. It's been completely worth it. So many owners just give up, I think the majority. When the vet suggested I think about...you know...I just couldn't imagine it without at least doing what is in my power to do. And I've been rewarded a thousand times over so far. Fingers crossed for next week's tests. Have a great weekend!
