First, thank you all so much for your purr-ayers and purrs...I feel so much better just knowing I have such wonder-purr friends!
I was pretty darn sick, and still don't feel up to snuff, but i think I'm heading in the right direction now. It all started when I yucked-up my breakfast last Wednesday morning. Then I started sneezing Thursday. The sneezing progressed over the weekend until I was "extreme sneezing" 15-20 times in a row.
On Monday, mama came home from work I didn't want to eat. Then I did my extreme sneezing thing. Then...I sat down and cried and cried. Mama scooped me up and rushed me to the vet.
The vet took my temperture. I loudly expressed my displeasure. I had a fever, so I got a shot of antibiotic in my hip. It hurt, and I hissed! Then they gave mama some vile liquid to give to me 2x a day. I don't like it. It smells like bananas. Do I look like a monkey for heaven's sake?
Well, things got no better. After mama got me home, I yucked-up pinkish yuck 3 times. The next day, I did try to eat and drink in the morning, so mama thought I was getting better. But then when she got home from work, she saw I had yucked-up again, and I couldn't put my head down to drink without pain. I cried and cried again, and mama rushed me to the vet again.
I still had a temperature and I was dehydrated. I had to stay at the vet and they poked me and put fluids in me all night. As if that wasn't bad enough, the next morning they came and got me and poked me again! After that poke I don't remember anything! All I know is I woke up minus 4 teeth AND the forearm hair on the both my front legs!! I look like a bleepin' poodle fer cryin' out loud!
Anyway, mama came and got me after it was dark out again. I heard the vet lady talking to her. She said she flushed gobs of bloody mucus out of my sinuses. Gross! The vet lady didn't seem to think my bad teeth and the sinus issues were related...just bad luck to have both problems at once. At any rate...at least I got to go home.
I have a different antibiotic to take now and I am on pain meds for my mouth. I was still doing my extreme sneezing when I got home last night, and this morning too, so mama is watching me like a hawk! We will keep you all updated.
Thanks again to all my wonder-purr friends. Mama and me appreciate you all!
Purrs n' headbonks,
