Age Is in the Mind

So Mom gets out the carrier this morning, in preparation for my vet visit, and comes to get me. She finds me by the laundry-room litter box, proudly standing next to a nicely formed, fresh, FIRM poop.

She says it's like taking her car to the mechanic. It never makes that funny noise when it's at the shop.

But off we went anyway, and the vet said it was because the metranidazole was doing its job in getting rid of the diarrhea, and to keep it up for another week. (The vet had seen the baggie of soupy stool Mom took in Wednesday, so he knew she wasn't making it up!) No parasites in that soup, which is good news.

And more good news! He said my heart sounded good and only a little bit fast, so the hyperthyroid medication is doing its job, too. And I gained two ounces!

Had to donate some blood while I was there, and also got a new bottle of Posatex for my ears, since there is some evidence that the yeast crud is returning.

Thanks, everybody, for your purrs and good wishes. The vet said I was a "tough little guy" and had a few lives left yet.

Whew. Time for lunch and a nap.
