Arrival Story:
2007 has been a rough year and I lost both Alex and Ed within months of eachother. I had made plans already to adopt Clive and when Alex passed I thought it would be nice for him to have a littermate to grow up with, so I adopted Chessie too.

Dear Diary....

A change is coming

OMC I've had so many blood draws this summer! But my PCV is holding steady and all my other blood counts are going well too. But the change is that my vet is switching me to Cyclosporine and going to try to get me off the prednisolone. Mom has to get me a prescription from the people pharmacy for Gengraf. It is a liquid, hope it doesn't taste too horrid!

The good news is I'm playing like a kitten again!


Anemia update

So since my May entry I had gotten really anemic and Mom had already began upping my prednisolone and the vet told her to up me to two pills a day (10mg) my PCV was at 18 at that point. I was close to needing a transfusion again and my heart had a slight murmur again. So I had a week on that and went back for a check and my PCV was in the 20's so less anemic. Then a week and a half ago I got checked again and I am at 37% so we are reducing my pred dosage to 1 and 1/2 pills a day for two weeks and at the end of this week I am backing down to 1 pill a day. I'll have to go get rechecked after I start the pill a day plan.

I'm doing lots better though, although after not eating my tummy wasn't used to my appetite coming back so fast so I had an upset digestive system (and gas!) but that is over with now. I just need to get my playfulness back again.


p.s. thanks for the rosie anonymous!

I've had a few good days and a few so so days so they are bumping my steriod up to 2x a day.

Clive & Sinbad are being brats to me though. Mom says they don't understand that I don't feel good but sheesh leave me alone!

Mom also says we are fighting this beast hard core because she doesn't want me to go. Why did Clive get all the healthy genes in our litter?
