Meowllo to all! Sorry we've been overwhelmed and meowmy hasn't logged me in to Catster furr a few days. I went to the vet on Friday. A follow-up X-ray showed that I still have fluid so I am staying on high-dosage Lasix now (my creatinine (SP?) is a few points higher that it should be) so the vet suggested I switch my food to a special prescription Renal support diet. I am still on Lotensin, Plavix, Potassium Gluconate and Furosemide (Lasix), but my Aspirin Suspension has been discontinued. I threw up very badly on Saturday and none of my meds stayed down but Sunday and MOnday meds have been succesful because meowmy finally figured out how to give them to me without struggling. She wraps me in a towel so i can't squirm away or scratch and as soon as the pills get popped in my mouth, she squirts a little chicken broth with a dropper in my mouth to ensure that I swallow them... so far so good >^..^< Today, I am breathing faster than we'd like and I don't have an appetite, which is a little unusual furr me, so meowmy is keeping watch on me. My sisfur Taylee has tried to pounce on me... I like it and think it's fun, but I'm too weak to play back. All in all, I'm still here and that's what matters most! I love all my furriends and apurreciate the continued purrrrrrrrs...they make my day!
Love, Sammy >^..^
