It's been a week or so since my last diary entry and I thought that I would update it. I was in the hospital two weeks ago in the emergency & regular vet hospital overnight. I slowly improved over the next week and seemed to be doing good. Last Monday, February 14, I started stumbling again and was having trouble even jumping up on the bed since I don't have any claws. It wasn't as bad as the day I went into the emergency vet a week earlier. Meowmy kept a close eye on me and I got better.On Thursday afternoon (February 17) I stopped eating again and was vomiting up bile because I didn't have anything in my tummy. I wasn't active at all and all I did was lay in the bathroom and sleep. Meowmy was worried that I was going to relapse like I had a few days earlier but I didn't. Friday afternoon, meowmy took me to the vet for a steroid shot because I wasn't eating and my gums were bothering me. My doctor says that he wants to pull all my top teeth to help me with this but he says that I am not healthy enough for it right now and doesn't want me to go through that in case the stress from the surgery might cause more problems. I am pretty fragile. He prescribed the potassium supplement for me, got some A& D canned food and we went home.
When we got home, I refused to eat even the canned food. I wouldn't eat at all on Saturday. Meowmy tried to give me the potassium and I wouldn't cooperate. She decided to give me some dry food thinking that maybe I would eat it but doubted it because of my gums. I nibbled at it and let the canned food again. Meowmy could tell that I wasn't feeling too good too.
Sunday (yesterday) My dad noticed that their was evidence of me having a seizure on the tile floor in the bathroom. Meowmy kept me in the bathroom overnight to monitor my food and water intake. She got the floor cleaned up and I definitely had had one because my tail was all wet and so were my front paws from me losing control of my bladder and drooling during the seizure. Meowmy kept a close eye on me all day and she checked on me often and no more signs of the seizure monster until she noticed at around 9pm that my tail was wet again. Seizure monster must have visited again. She gave me a bath which I wasn't fond of because she said I was stinky from the monster. She put me back in the bathroom and let me out a little while later. About midnight, I was sleeping with my daddy and the monster struck again.I lost control again of my bladder and meowmy had to completely change the bed including the mattress pad. I'm really glad meowmy has a waterproof mattress pad on the bed. She put one of those on the bed because I have had many seizures on the bed and would have ruin the mattress by now. So meowmy protects it because of me. So I had two possibly three seizures yesterday. I am eating the dry food right now so that is good. I am really tired today. I just want to start feeling better again. Enough is enough is what meowmy keeps telling me.She says that I need a break from being sick for a while. I haven't been well for long my whole life but meowmy always makes sure that I get the medical care I need no matter what it costs. She's spend several hundred dollars on me in the past three weeks. She says that I'm worth it. Please purr and purray that I get to feeling better and stay that way. I was so much hoping that with my seizure medication being increased that I wouldn't have anymore seizures but I guess I am still going to have them.
Love & purrz,

Sending lots of purrs to you Hailey. I sure don't like that seizure monster either, and I hope he doesn't visit you again. Be sure to eat, eat, eat! If they sell Tiki in your town, your Mom might try that cause most cats love Tiki.
