Chronic Kidney Disease

I had to go to the vet on Monday to get my teeth cleaned and for my annual shots. I also had blood drawn for my senior profile (since I'm 15) and the results are not too good. Mom told me that I have chronic kidney disease:( I lost almost a pound since last year and that's a lot considering I only weigh 5 lbs! Plus, my eyes don't do what they're suppose to when it's bright and then dark and the vet said that's from some retinal thing going on because of my kidney disease. Right now it's not life threatening, but the vet wanted to let mom know. I don't need any other meds, but they are changing my diet to a lower protein that mom is getting from them. This all sounds so scary to me so please say a prayer that nothing happens and I live for a long time. Mom said not to worry that whether I have a year or 10 years, she'll make sure that I am happy:) I guess that's all a kitty can ask. I know I'm glad that mom is taking me to the cabin all the time cause those are the bestest times of my life now! And the vet said that the medicine mom gives me to make me calm won't make my disease worse, but it would be good if I can eventually not take them so I think mom is going to slowly cut the dose back and hopefully get to where I don't need any at all. I think we'll get the eventually. So, that's the latest with me. I wish it was something good to tell, but I guess it could be worse too.
