Mom got my blood panel results back. There is good news as far my liver and kidney functions go, they are normal. Not bad for a senior cat with Hyperthyroidism, huh?! My T4 (thyroid) is elevated, so Dr. Ginny increased my Methimazole liquid.
Also, she started me on Cyclosporine liquid for my gums. The most serious thing now is my gums, since I cannot have another dental procedure because of my poor health. Last year I had a thorough dental and Dr. Ginny removed five teeth. My gums were looking great. This situation with my gums is new. We are hoping and purraying my gums will improve with the medicine and thus my health too.
Mom keeps looking at my baby pictures, and the ones of me growing up and crying. She can't believe I'm 17 years old already. It seems like just yesterday that I was pulled out from that vacant building, a fluffy-faced tiny black kitten (rescued along with my brother Tigger) needing round the clock nursing and care.
I am so happy to receive encouragement and purrs from my friends at the Rainbow Bridge: Angel Rocky Ann, Sally my sweet guardian angel, my angel beau Peepers, my sisfur-in-law Muffy, my friends Ava Corrine, Buddie and Mea-Angel. Knowing that you are purring for me is so deeply special to me. And, should I make my journey to the Bridge soon, you will be waiting for me. You do not know how that comforts me and my Mom and Dad.
Also, my heartfelt thank you's to Drifter and Family, Karma Kitty and Family, Chrissy Pinksocks and Family, Mercedes (Mercy), Simmy and Family, Louis LeBeau, Gentleman Jack, Circles, Tigger, Hazel Lucy, Murray, Edgar, Rascal, Samoa, Scarlet of Calico Junction, Sirius Cat, Andy, Mr D, Wanda, and Gleek for their support and purrs. I hope I haven't forgotten anyone in my diary, please know you are all in my heart.
My family & I are purrrrring for you! There has been far too much sadness this year already. We think it is very cool that you are 17!
So glad that your numbers came back normal! My sister Lucy takes cyclosporine for her severe allergies and it has really, really helped her. Purrs that you have good results from it, too! Purring for you!
I think it's cool that you think it's cool that I'm 17! The fact that your nickname is Psycho made me MOL! I'm going to have to read your page and see why your pawrents call you that. :)
*gives a great big hug to Sally* I hope so too. I haven't given up hope yet!
Glad to hear your liver and kidney numbers are good, and we'll keep purring that the medicine helps your gums!
Great about your blood panel results. Good job Taylor!!
