Vet Visit Today!

I didn't have a very good day yesterday. I was feeling punk, and I didn't want to eat much, and I hid under the round table in the living room that has a tablecloth over it.

Mawmee stayed up late on the computer, and around midnight she wanted to give me some food before she went to bed. She couldn't find me, and got really worried, but guess where I was? I was in bed with Daddy and Gleek! It is dang cold here and I needed the body heat from two big guys!

Mawmee brought me a midnight snack in bed, and I ate all of it. Then this morning, Daddy said I ate pretty good, and Mawmee fed me again around 9:30, and I ate good for her too.

Then we went to the vet's office at 11:00. I got more blood taken, and Mawmee gave them my pills so they could put them down my throat instead of her having to do it. She is finally getting smart and letting them do the dirty work. She said it's okay if I don't like them, but she doesn't want me to not like her anymore!

My weight is down only 1 ounce, so the vet said that is really maintaining because the difference from last week could just be a good poopie (although she didn't use the poopie word, but I told her I would have to use it to get the Diary Gal's attention).

My red blood cell count has gone up again to 28,000 and if it gets to 30,000 she said she would be happy! So, I'll continue the shots every other day. My white blood cell count was normal!

I'm also going to get my prednisone every day instead of every other day. She thinks that will help keep the cancer suppressed a little. I only take 1/4 of a tablet, and she said taking it every day won't hurt me.

She noticed that I wasn't as peppy as last week. I told her she wouldn't always feel peppy if she had vampires sucking her blood each week too! I don't have to go back for two whole weeks, unless I get really bad.

Thanks for continuing with the purrs. I really appreciate all my friends!

You seem a bit un-punked, Calvin, and that's good news. (I wish I could teach Mom to bring me midnight snacks in bed.)
