As everycat knows, I had my cardiologist visit today. First of all, my regular cardiologist wasn't there. It was a woman this time. Both Mommy and I prefer the man as he was nicer to talk to even though he shaved me.
All in all, I still don't like being held down while they clamp those wires to my chest. The tech had to put an e-collar on me, and guess what I did? I bit into it as I was really hissed off. I'm glad this whole visit is over with and i'm back home in my bed with Landy.
My heart beat is 140 which is good. Mommy was told to keep me on the reduced sotalol. They also found that there was a small amount of fluid around my heart. The cardiologist then told Mommy that I was in heart failure. She asked her how long I had and she couldn't predict that.
It's so sad getting old and have to deal with all these awful diseases. Mommy feels the same way as she got the blood work results for her kidney function, and it's not good. The doctor wants to refer her to a nephrologist. Mommy cried and is quite shaken up over this bad news along with my health issues. When mommy hears stuff like this she freaks out and worries constantly.
Lastly, I thank Gleek and Platelicker for their concerned comments. It means a lot to me and Mommy.
Purrs & Breeps,

Please don't worry too much, or let your momma worry too much, either. I have a 'heart thing' and my vet guy smiled when i had my recheck and told daddy that 'what is important is he's happy and enjoying life'.
I'm thinking of you here.
By the way, mommy's friend has 'kidney stuff' and recently saw a new doctor, is on herbs and is doing well. Hugs to you both-purrs fron the couch!
Dear Sampy and Mommy... keep getting Error 3 so gonna try breakin' up my comment...
Ruffy made an upliftin' comment. Enjoy life now. Things could always be worse. I almost died a few weeks back from diabetes but I am still here.
