|i am sooo sorry to hear this.
i passed from FIP almost 2 years ago (wow doesn't seem that long), however i had dry FIP. from all of the info mommy gathered wet FIP is actually a much quicker demise. i was diagnosed, looked like i was responding well to the meds and -BOOM- 10 days later i died in my mommy's arms.
she read for effusive it was inside a month.
as far as isolation, my big sis was around me the whole time. not only did she NOT get FIP but she tested negative for coronavirus.
if you are worried, you can the other cats tested for FeCoV, the precursor to FIP. even if they are positive it does NOT mean it'll mutate into FIP. it just means close watching. it is good that you all don't use the same litterbox. if the other kitties contracted FeCoV it'll clear quicker. there is a support group for FIP on this site. consider joining that. maybe 1 of our very unfortunate members dealt with the effusive version.
your furmily will be in our purrs
