Adventures of a Shy Cat

Last day in CCU

Well, mommy didn't visit me yesterday. The vet told her it was Ok to take a day off, and that since I am feeling better, it might depress me too, to see her and not go home. She saw me the day before though, and I looked so good she cried! Well, I didn't look great, still hadn't been eating but I GOT UP! I recognized her and came over to cuddle and they let her open the door to my oxygen cage. I also got my cardio results and I have Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) which caused congestive heart failure :( the worst case the Dr said he has seen in years, oh my!

She was hoping to take me home lastnight but since they reduced my lasix (diuretic) there was no change in the fluid for my lungs. They strong armed her into another 24 hours in CCU with another X-ray and blood work. She begrudgingly agreed since I was still in oxygen. My lasix dose went back up and I finally ate something (after days!! They gave me something to make me hungry).

Mommy is really worried about $$ . My current bill (at scheduled check out of 36 hr) had already gone over the estimated high by 400 and another day cost another 700. Daddy basically said (he's paid for everything) that this is it. I think ... I hope, I don't get sick again.... Because there will be no more money spent on me (besides meds and regular checkups).

What a fighter! At least you have a diagnosis and they know what meds to give you. Here is a link to financial aid resources in case you do get sick. http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/resources/tip s/trouble_affording_pet.html

And here is a link to an assistance fund specifically for cats and dogs with heart disease: http://www.bigheartsfund.org/

Hope you get to go home soon.
