Today was not a good day to be Mouse. Mommy put me into the cat carrier and then into the car. I knew just where we were headed, and I was NOT happy. I let Mommy know just how I felt, but she still kept going there.
Once we got to the V-E-T, I started up with my hissing and growling immediately. I mean in the waiting room where no one was even attempting to do anything to me. I did not want to see the doctor, and I meant business!
Mommy said I had to go there for two things:
1. To get my thyroid levels rechecked.
2. To get my pee-pee analyzed because last time I had some blood in my urine.
Mommy decided that instead of letting them get my pee-pee out with a needle, that she would collect a sample at home, and that is what she did. This way, I only needed one needle for my blood. I also provided Mommy with another sample of my pee in my cat carrier just in case she needed some more, and she did not even appreciate it!
By the time I got on the examining table, I was pretty tired. It got harder and harder to fight, especially with my scruff being scruffed and a towel wrapped around my hands, so I mostly behaved pretty well. It only took three people to hold me down this time for the needle, and the doctor was able to handle me just fine for the rest of the exam.
The doctor said my heart murmur is gone and that my kidney function based on the urine sample was great! But they found two kinds of crystals in my urine. Mommy is unhappy about the crystals, but relieved that they explain my recent new habit of spraying her baseboards with urine!
The doctor says I have to eat a new food and then I will be all better. Also, pending the results of the blood work, I will be getting ready to have the Radiocat treatment! Mommy says the Radiocat will cure my thyroid so that I don't have to take pills every day. We've been working to get me ready have it done, and I am almost there! I don't see how listening to the radio will help, but if it can make me not have to take pills every night, I am all for it!
I am so tired that I am going to rest now. This whole ordeal took a lot out of me.
I liked yesterday much better, when I was at Yosemite for Truman's bachelor party!
