Oh boy this morning was a ruff start for me, Mom chased me down to give me my asthma treatment, she found me hiding under a dresser, I thought I was clever and she wouldn't find me, but I was wrong...darn.....

Mom gave me my treatment and I did good today.....then before I knew it I was in my dreaded carrier MOL MOL MOL MOL.....Mom gave me a remedy to calm me down, but it took a while to work so it was MOL MOL MOL.

After driving and driving we finally stopped and Mom took me into a building, no dogs this morning just cats.....we waited and then I heard my name, oh no here we go I am shaking....

The Vet Tech weighed me I weigh 10.55 lbs., then out came the instrument to take my temperature in the ear, yes in the ear, not the rear, thank goodness not cool having it done at the other end....

Dr. Kathy finally came in to see me, she checked my chest and lungs to make sure they are getting better and she put a dentist mirror under my nose to see how my breathing is.....guess what I am now breathing out of both sides of my nose.....my chest and lungs are clear.....

Dr.Kathy is pleased to report that I am doing so much better, she laughed when Mom told her she thinks I hold my breath sometimes so I don't have to breath in my mask and get my medication.

So after almost 2 years I am finally breathing like I should and I am better...Mom still have to give me the inhaler 2 times a day for 2 more weeks and then she will try 1 time if I am still doing good. Dr. Kathy said that most cats with asthma usually have to continue with 2 treatments...

Mom is so happy that I can finally breathe and so am I....

That mask is what mama wanted for me, but it wasn't available around here back then. I was on, basically, muscle relaxers to let me not stress so I would breathe calmer. I'm so very glad you've gotten the mask and are doing well! Even if you do stay with 2 treatments, it's still wonderful!

Zeke, that is great. I wouldn't like an asthma treatment at all. I got a bath last night and I hated it. MOL

WOW I am speechless!!! Me DDP today. I am thrilled and Mom helped me with my dairy....

Well Mom isn't sure if I am holding my breathe, but there is a flap in the inhaler that is suppose to move when I breathe in the mask and sometimes it does not move even though I have that mask on my face. Mom has to pet me and talk to me to get me to breathe, it takes a little bit for the flap to start moving....So i guess I do hold my breathe....

Thank you everyone for sending me messages and congrats too!!!!

Loves to you all
Zeke
