Good News And Bad News
Unfortunately, even though I am feeling better with the antibiotics and have started to eat more, the blood test results weren't all good news. Most of the tests were fine, but my kidney values were not great and also I am becoming a hyperthyroid kitty. The Loud Australian V-e-t wants to start me on a daily pill to help my kidneys, and maybe later on I might need to have some thyroid medicine too, but he wants to manage any medications very carefully so that it doesn't upset my diabetes, which has been under good control for the last three years. So my mum is going to see him tomorrow to talk about me and pick up some kidney pills. He is also going to keep an eye on my teeth, but he doesn't want to send me to sleep for dental work unless he absolutely has to, because of my age and my health. My mum says I shouldn't worry about all this medical stuff, because it's just something that often happens to senior catizens like me, and I know my humans and the Loud Australian V-e-t will take good care of me. My mum says all I have to worry about is eating as much as I can and trying to get a bit fatter again because she doesn't like being able to feel all my bones under my floof. I think I will make her happy and go and have a snack now, I think I can smell tuna!
You keep eating and gain some weight.
Love & Purrs,
Continued purrs and healing Light to you!!!
I was so happy to see your post.
I was so afraid when Your Mom hadn't posted for you.
Now I feel so much better.
Although the news wasn't purrfect we think that there is a lot of good news you got and it sounds to us as though with the meds you will be back to your happy and healthy self in no time.
We will continue to send healing purrs to you and to your Mom
Just keep eating Eric!
Sounds furry busy round your house too, but thanks EverSo for taking the time to give us this update as we were all worried and while we still are a bit worried, sounds like both your vets are on the right track (our mewmie knows this she said, cuz her day hunting place is at a cat vets). Your vet probably told you that sometimes getting the Hyper-T-ism under control makes the kidney function worse cuz the kidney values are affected by the 'overdrive' that hyperthyroidism does to them, So they have to do one thing at a time and monitor, monitor, monitor.
Mewmie says they see lots of Hyper-T cats at the hospital and she even has a Hyper-T human friend! Here are some good links to both kidney disease and hyperthyroidism, and be sure to have your mewmie email Teri if she has any questions, okeydokey?!
We are relieved to hear that you are doing well and things are being managed :)
Purrs for your furs to grow back quickly too ;) heehee
