I've got good news and not so good news. I'll give you the good news first. Short and sweet...I am a Daily Diary Pick today. Thanks Diary Gal! I didn't have one of those in a while. Of course, I didn't write a diary in a while either.
The not so good news is that Rusty is in the hospital. He spent the day with our vet yesterday and came home around 6:30. The doc talked to Mom around 7:30 and said that "if Rusty were my kitty, I would take him to the emergency hospital". Geez, when a vet would take her cat to another doctor, then you worry! So around midnight, Mom took him for the 1/2 hour car ride up to the hospital. There was not a lot of traffic and no waiting!
Rusty was throwing up the night before and was very lethargic and wouldn't eat or drink. We have seen this before with his pancreatitis, triadits, etc. Although this time, the onset was very sudden. Usually we would see symptoms gradually appear, so maybe this is something different this time. Our vet had given him fluids and antibiotics and something for pain. She had drawn bloodwork, but it missed the pick-up for the lab, so they will run the bloodwork from the hospital.
His doc that he sees when he is at the hospital is on this morning and she will check him out, do an ultrasound and should be giving me a call before lunch time. If you can spare a purr or two for him, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
