Well, we got through week 1 with no Mommy! Well, we still have a mommy, but she is never home.
The v-e-t called with my blood results. They said the return of my symptoms (weight loss, vomiting, heart murmur, abnormal kidney values) is likely due to the fact that my thyroid levels increased dramatically again. My thyroid was regulated just a few weeks ago, but suddenly starting to get away from us again. This is typical with hyperthyroidism. It gets worse over time.
So the doctor recommended two things:
-increase my dose on the thyroid pills (yuck!)
-change food again
The v-e-t staff left the food outside the office door for Mommy because their hours conflict her new hours. We will start the transition to the new food. Sigh. I am so frustrated that in spite of being such a good boy and always taking my medicine for Daddy, that I still am not getting better.
I am feeling ok and acting normal, except for an occasional poop outside the box. Mommy wonders if I am just letting her know I miss her! But when I first got diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, I was not using the litterbox at all, so it could be that too. I have been good the last few days with no accidents or throwing up.
Hopefully this new strategy will get us somewhere. Thank you to all of you who sent pmails, rosettes and nice thoughts and purrs to me.
