Some thoughts from a kitty's perspective

Got some good news - my annual echo on my heart is good news. My cardiologist says that it is unchanged from last year, and that means that it is a bit better now than when I was first diagnosed in 2009! Now, still the puzzlement & momma is kinda ticked. The panel for tick borne diseases came back negative - excellent. So now Dr says that the neurologic exam she gave me today is showing improvement, and my eyes are a teeny bit better. So that is leading her towards an inner ear infection - which to know for sure I would need a skull xray but would need to be anesthetized. What has momma ticked is that when she agreed to have me asleep for a FULL BODY XRAY that it would include my skull right? especially cause the inner ear infection was brought up before. Well momma says no way with the xray - why should she pay for me to be asleep again? and if it is getting better and I am to be on Baytril for another 2 weeks - we will wait & see. The cardiologist mentioned that the other thing it could be is high blood pressure. Dr would not take it today because I was too upset & had too much done & it would be a false high. It does not matter if I go in next week, I will still be upset. Plus they seem to kinda act like there is nothing else but to run there every other day. Momma does have to work & has other appts. So her theory is that if the baytril is supposedly working we will wait & see. On another note, I went downstairs to go potty & 1 box still has the old litter (ran out) and I came up sneezing & watery eyes again. So maybe the infection gets irritated by the litter. Who knows - Momma is exhausted trying to figure this out & I sure am too. After the 2 weeks, then there will be a re-evaluation, maybe try another opinion. We are sure glad that at least I know that aside from this I am a pretty healthy dude, and that my heart disease is well under control. So momma says let's focus on all the positives, and not worry. I am just glad I don't have to go back to the doctor for a little while!
