Meow! Well, the appointment at Chesapeake Veterinary Cardiology Associates went well and to Dr. Tyrrell's surprise, things haven't changed! PHEW!
He said when he saw that he was going to see me today, he was curious if I was doing well or if I'm still stable since my last appointment. After my exam, he was quote, "Happy and pleasantly surprised and Tiskers is miraculously still stable with no changes". He said, normally with the severity of my condition, especially since it has more damage to young cats, by now, typically cats would have shown some sort of decline and would need a change or increase of meds.
Mom was very happy to hear that I'm proving to be an exception! The following is what my report says:
-Overall very stable borderline severe juvenile onset HCM
-Persistent severe posterior wall hypertrophy
-Unchanged high normal to mild increase in left atrial chamber dimensions
I'll need another blood chemistry in 6 months from my vet, and will see Dr. Tyrell in 9 months.
THANK YOU for the continued purrrrs, mom and I really appreciate it, and can't thank you enough. It means more than you'll ever know!!! *hugs*
NOW HAND ME THE LADYBUGGY!!!
PS!!! I donated some blood for testing as it'll help Cardiologists learn more about cats with HCM vs. those without. This will help future hormone testing levels as mine would be higher than those without heart disease!! I MADE A DIFFERENCE!!
Doing the happy dance!
Great news! Keep on doing what you're doing!
YAAAAAAYYY! This is the best news we've heard today. Hug that ladybuggie tight.
