MY VET VISIT AND RECHECK

Hello my friends I have finally got Mom to give you an update on my Vet visit last Friday and what is going on with me...

Well ever since I had my surgery I get so stressed going to the vet I think Mom is going to leave me, I don't want to be there at all I try to get back in to my carrier....

Friday they had to check me to make sure there is no lump and guess what there isn't any Hooray! they took blood and urine for retesting....they want to make sure there are no signs of the nasty C...hooray there isn't any....Dr. Kathy told Mom I look really good and while she was feeling me she said all was good...

Once I was able to get out of there and we got home I went to hiding while Mom was gone for a little while....Saturday was another stressful day Mom and Dad had their carpets cleaned so I went into the closet which I love....

Sunday when Mom got up she was talking to me and I stopped by a hall door and was quivering my tail like I was spraying, Mom says Xena what are you doing, you better not be spraying....I wasn't, Mom realized I was straining, she looked on the floor and there are a few spots of urine...no no Xena you are not getting an infection....too late Mom I already have it....

Mom started me on a homeopathic remedy that does work if she catches it in time, all day I laid around and spent time in the litter box trying to go...

Today Dr. Kathy called around 2:30, she told Mom that there was some signs of infection so she has to go get me antibiotics and will have to take for 2 weeks...

Now on to my kidney issues...my BUN number went from 33 in June to 38 and my Creatinine number went from 2.7 to 2.8...

Dr. Kathy said it isn't bad but she would like for me to start getting fluids under the skin. Mom said that she would like for be to settle down first, take my antibiotics first and she agreed...so when Mom goes in tomorrow to get my medication she will make my appointment to get rechecked and for Mom to learn how to give me fluids....

Mom really doesn't want to do this yet, but looks like she doesn't have a choice so we can keep me from getting worse and hopefully keep my numbers from going up too high....now Mom isn't afraid to do the needle into my skin, she has 2 clients cats that she has to give them their insulin....

Well friends that is all from here with me...I am doing OK, I am eating, just not feeling too good right now but wait by the end of the week I will be OK...

We are praying for all the need our prayers...

hugs and love

Xena

I'll be purring for you too! Sounds like you had a stressful week. That can be hard on your body. It's great that your mom can give you the fluids herself so that you don't have to go in to the vet.

Oh Zena..... I am so sad to hear that you have a nasty infection again. So glad to hear that the nasty C has stayed away for you:) Sending lot of purrs to you and your mommmy that you stay happy and healthy. When Mom was talking to her husband last night he relayed that a good friend of hers called and left a message that her son has just passed away from Liver Cancer, he was 45 years old. He was diagnosed in February. Since that time they were able to take several trips together as Pat was her only child. There is nothing she can do until she gets back home on Friday. It is so heartbreaking.

I will be purring for you my sweet Xena. Yay for being cancer free, boo for the urinary problem. Sammy had to receive subcutaneous fluids twice recently for his urinary problems, and Mom thought she could probably do this at home, it seemed so easy. We send purrs that you feel better soon!

Love, Tully
