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.

xoxo,
Chessie

p.s. thanks for the rosie anonymous!
