|Sorry it took me a while to respond, for some reason catster doesn't always send messages/replies!
Here's what mom's friend told her:
"The vet checked her out, let her walk around a bit. He told me about a thing called eclampsia (sp) where a pregnant cat has her calcium depleted and then when she starts nursing, the calcium in her system sort of colapses and the animal can barely move by the time she gets to the vet. Fortunately, all it takes is a calcium shot to fix, and it starts to work (a miracle) during the shot. The vet didn't rule out past injury, plus, laying for hours in one possition with the kittens could have cramped circulation. Happy to say, that's so much better, or at least, I no longer need to panic about it."
Mom and kittens are doing better according to a more recent post!
