I am so sorry for not updating you sooner on me, my friends. It is sometimes hard for my mom to sit and think about what goes on with me and then have to type it into my diary. It is like living it all over again I guess. I will start with the good news- my tumors have shrunk! Not a lot yet but some & seem to be stable. I had ultrasound done so they are sure of that.
The not so good news is that I am still dealing with the fevers. Not every day but far too often for my liking. They come & go pretty suddenly. Well they come on more suddenly than they go I guess. I am on sub Q fluids daily plus the Prednisilone. Each time my mom tries to cut down on either of those- even a little bit, the fevers get worse. In order to try the Palladia I have to be on the Prednisilone only every other day because I can't have it the same day as the Palladia. So I can't try the Palladia until the fevers stop. My doctors all just refer to it as the mystery fever. All my tests look good but it is still there. So they have to assume it is from the cancer. Or actually it is my own body trying to fight the cancer the way I understand it. At least with my meds I do have mostly good days. I sleep more than I used to but still love to lay by an open door & watch the goings on outside.
We have a fox coming to our pond & feeder. He is the exact color of me and about my size too. The first time my mom saw him from above she thought he was an orange cat. He was drinking from the pond & she was looking down from the sunroom at him. He eats bread that we put out for the birds. I like bread too so maybe he is my wild cousin or something?
I guess that is about all for now. Thank you so much for all the comments, pawmail, email, prayers, purrs, rosettes etc. I know I keep saying this but they really do mean a lot to us because they come from YOU. Purrs for this fever to never come back would be the icing on the cake. Thanks for any that you can spare. I know that there has sure been a lot of sick kitties and kitties making their Bridge journeys of late. I am sending purrs to all of them and their families.
keep up the good work and hopefully that nasty fever will go away so you can start the new meds. i think it is about time to light you a new candle, my friend:) (((((big hug)))))) for you and all of your family.
