A Day In Lukey's Life

Feeling a Little Better

I thought I’d give my Mom some grey hairs last week by acting lethargic, not eating, and vomiting on the bedroom carpet in the middle of the night. Mom has never seen me as sick as I was, and it really worried her. She took me to see our Vet Lady the very next day who wanted to look in my ears and mouth, squeeze my belly, listen to my heart and lungs, and stick that dreaded thermometer up my bum ~ sheesh. She asked us all kinds of questions. Were there Christmas decorations, tinsel, or anything new in the house I might have gotten into and eaten? Nope. Did we change food recently? Nope, nothing Mom could think of. I acted as though I had a really bad case of the flu.

Vet Lady said I had a fever and probably an infection going on, inflammation in my belly, or maybe both. She told Mom we could start conservative with medications and fluids and see how I do over the next couple of days. If I wasn’t feeling any better, I could come back for an ultrasound and some blood work. I forgave Vet Lady for sticking that thermometer up my bum after she said I was very handsome and had “gorgeous whiskers.”

The past few days have been up and down for me, with occasional bouts of throwing up, but I am finally starting to eat a little more and show signs of improvement. I even jumped up on the bed this morning and licked Daddy on the nose, a definite sign I am feeling more like my old self. Thank you to every buddy who pawmailed and sent me POP and purrs. We really appreciate all the love and caring from our pals.

Love, Luke
