Numbers are Going Down!

I've figured out all the tricks they are using on me to give me fluids, so Friday we took a trip to the vet's office so I could get fluids.

Dang, those vet techs tried some new tricks, and Mawmee and Daddy used them on Saturday to give me fluids. You can now call me Burrito Violet! They roll me in a towel like an enchilada! I also got weighed but they did it after the fluids so the number might be off a little. I had not lost any weight.

While I was there, a new vet lady came in to see me. My other vet lady is on vacation. She said we should take some of my blood to compare it to the blood they took two weeks ago.

She called yesterday to give me the results. While my numbers are still elevated, they have come down, so your purrs are working! My white blood cell count is still elevated, so I'll be going back on Monday for another Convenia shot. The vet lady said I could either take pills, liquid, or do the shot which lasts two weeks. Since I'm already getting somewhat stressed from the fluids ordeal, it was decided the best thing would be the shot.

Here are my values from the latest tests:

BUN from 82 to 71
Creatinine from 5.1 to 4.8
Phosphorus from 8.5 to 7.1
WBC from 36,000 to 33,000

By the way, I'm loving pumpkin! Mawmee mixes it in my Fancy Feast in the morning, and I gobble it up!

Thanks again for all the purrs!

That's good news, Violet!

New Mexico-style enchiladas are flat, not rolled, so I hope your Mawmee and Daddy are not flattening you! Your Mawmee might consider trying a Klaw Kontrol bag to see if that makes it easier for all of you.

Still purring for you!

Violet, I'm not sure how it would work for giving you fluids, and there may be similar bags that are better. Our mom has never used one. Scooter says to ask Olde Furts admin Minxy's mom about it -- she used one for one of her cats.

Angel Sonny Bono, Violet is a handsome boy instead of a pretty girl. MOL! I know... confusing because of his name. When I first met him, I was always calling him a she.

Let's do another flyover tonite with that super duper special Purple Angel Dust that Angel Calvin just got in.

Keep up the fight, Mr. Violet!!

I wouldn't like bein a purrito either, Violet. Our mom's can think of some wild things, can't they?

Keep eating your pumpkin and fancy feast and try not to fight mawmee too much. Those fluids will help you so much.

Ashley & I continue to purr.

Love, your pal,
