The Plot Thickens

I was diagnosed with kidney disease a couple of months ago. I had been vomiting frequently, and tests showed some elevated indicators for kidney issues. I was put on a special diet. Unfortunately, I became sick again. We returned to the vet, yesterday, where they re-checked the kidney levels, but they had not elevated further, so x-rays were taken. What appears to be a gallstone was on the film, and perhaps, a kidney stone, as well. An ultrasound will be taken on 10/1 to discover more info. We are hoping that a non-invasive way to help me will present itself, but obstruction may be a concern. If surgery is needed, the nearest facility is Purdue University, Lafayette, about 1.5 hrs away. This could be very expensive, but we will deal with it, as my quality of life is good--I'm not moping around, sleeping 24/7, or in alot of pain. We just want me to be as healthy as possible. Keep paws crossed for me. I try to be a good kitty, active, and very affectionate. I would rather be napping in the sun, than doing all these tests. Yuk.

 

Feeling better

Mom took me on another, *pffft* car ride to my kitty doctor. They poked me, and some blood came out. Ugh. After sitting with mom for awhile, the doctor and her assistant friend came back and said that while one of my readings had not changed, it was not bad to start with, and another reading actually got better (whatever all that meant). Mommy seemed very happy. They talked about my diet, and that it seems to be helping me to feel well. I do feel well. I was tired before, and didn't feel like playing as much. I didn't want to hang out with my furry mom, or my human mom. I kept getting sick. Yuk. Now I'm playing more, and hanging out more with my furamily. I haven't been sick in more than 2 weeks! Mom got me some special canned food, and she mixed some with my dry food. Yum! The dry food is ok, but kind of boring. This other stuff tastes like chicken! Really! MOL! If I continue to feel well, I don't have to visit my doctor for 6 months. I hope that's a long time, beclaws I don't like sitting in that container and riding in the car. Mom brushed my coat, and now I'm ready to relax in a sunbeam that's shining in the window.

 

Not as healthy as we hoped

I was still getting sick, even after taking the Pepcid for my tummy. Mom took me back to the vet, where they checked my blood, and found something that was not right. The doctor said I am in the early stages of kidney disease. They put water under my fur (boy, did that feel funny!) to "hydrate" me (whatever that is) and I had to take some medicine, and I am on a special diet now. The food is ok, but I like my old food better. Mom has me on dry food, but is going to let me try the wet, too, and see if I like that, and how it works. I have not been ill in several days. We are hoping that the medicine and diet are helping. I want to get better, so mom doesn't worry too much about me. She is always looking for me to see what I am doing. I wish I could tell her that everything will be ok. I am not feeling bad. I still want to play, and eat, and hang out, and do everything I was doing before.
