Hello Catsters! This is Mouse's Mommy. He wanted me to let you all know when there was any news on his condition.
He got the treatment around noon today. It's just one injection administered under skin, like a vaccine.
His nurse, Ron, just called and said Mouse is doing fine. He even added that he seems to be "getting into the spirit of things" and was taking a nap the last time Ron checked on him. He will keep checking on him and call again tomorrow morning and every morning until he is home.
Thank you so much for all of your purrs! The danger for Mouse will be when his thyroid is regulated and operating normally, which will occur over the course of a month or so, because that is when any underlying kidney disease might manifest itself. (Hyperthyroidism masks the kidney problems because it sends more blood to the kidneys and makes them appear to functioning better than they are. When the disease is cured, some cats come down with kidney symptoms...sometimes lethal.) Mouse was showing signs of compromised kidney function even with the hyperthyroidism, so we are super-worried.
But we will all keep our fingers and paws crossed for Mouse, who I am not ashamed to admit is my favorite pet ever! He has such a great personality and we adore him.
Thank you to all of Mouse's friends and Catster family for their love and support.
