I'm back from spending an entire day with Dr. Strubel for a joint tap and x-rays. First thing I did was eat because I was starving! She said I was a good cat today. I bet she says that to every cat! Maybe because I didn't leave her a present like I did last time. She didn't know that I had already left the present for Mom in the carrier on the way there!
The news is good even though the full results from the joint tap won't be back for a few days. My x-rays do not show significant inflammation like they did last time. Yeah!!! I had been taking 1 prednisone tablet a day and Vibramycin twice a day since the first time I was there. Now I can alternate between 1 prednisone tablet a day and 1/2 a tablet the next and still continue the Vibramycin. Then we will call Dr. Strubel to give her an update on my progress in a couple of weeks and we'll try to decrease the prednisone to 1/2 tablet a day. Mom is going to have to go and buy one of those pill dispensers with days of the week on them to keep it straight! Dr. Strubel also said I definitely look more comfortable when walking around and that I've gained almost a pound! I have to go back in a month for another recheck. Uggh!
