I'm a McDDP! MOL. Sounds like a Big Mac or something. Thanks everyone for your DDP wishes and prezzies and stuff. Things are pretty quiet here lately other than grammy having heart trouble and Midnight's issues. Mommy wants to tell you about Midnight so I'll let her talk. She says I talk too much lately anyway, MOL.
from Mom: I want to give you an update on my sister’s cat Midnight. As you all know she’s got IBD/colitis and has had chronic UTIs. Now she’s got something new. She’s got something called Horner’s Syndrome. I had to take her to the vet last Friday afternoon because one of her pupils is constricted and her third eyelid is up ¼ of the way into her eye. Both her pupils are now different sizes which is not good. Horner’s Syndrome is idiopathic like IBD and can have many different causes. One is bacteria so she’s on Baytril right now. This is something that may or may not resolve itself so she may have to live with it forever, we don’t know. If it does resolve, it could take up to a month. Then there is the very worst case scenario which could be a brain tumor. That’s not something the vet thinks is the case here but of course she can’t see into her head without an x-ray, but none of the signs yet point to that. It points to Horner’s. So we’d be happy if it was just that, it won’t interfere with her vision or anything so she’ll be okay with it. My poor Midngight. I cannot bear the thought of it being a tumor so we’re just concentrating on giving the antibiotics and hoping this does resolve itself. Here’s what Horner’s is: Horner's Syndrome. Prayers and purrs would be much appreciated if you can, just in case.
Okay it's me again, mom had to hijack my diary to tell the complicated stuff about Middy. Thanks again for my DDP honor and if you can purr for Midnight that would be so wonderful. That poor girl has gone through so much but for right now she'd doing well (knock on wood).
