This has been the worst week of poor Truman's life. Kev took him to the vet Tuesday, cuz he hasn't eaten anything since we moved here August 13th (Friday, remember?). So, he was found to be dehydrated, and got the iv started around noon Tuesday, and he's had it in since then...and, no, he didn't get to come home until today. They've been doing every test under the sun, all kinds of blood tests, x-rays and everything. I went in Wednesday to visit him, he just looked so sad & pitiful, laying in the vet's office with an iv hanging out of his arm. oh, he is a cat, I guess its his front paw. But he did stand up and lick my hand, give me a 'head-butt'. I think he got his xrays Wednesday, and the blood test results back that day. There was nothing wrong in any of them; kidney, thyroid, liver all were good, except that he has a "fatty liver" :-/ The dr said that his skin is yellowish under his fur, but the blood doesn't show anything wrong with his liver, but, he's on antibiotics for a few weeks. So he's home now, but if he doesn't start eating, I have to get him back to the vet for a liver biopsy. Also, his abdomen was mri'd yesterday...nothin'! Actually, it's good news on the face of it, but the vet can't figure out what the hell it is! When Tif saw him here last week before he went to the vet, and she said he was so skinny, he looked like an alley cat! And if he doesn't eat on his own, I'm going to have to syringe-feed him! Kev bought some chicken breast & boiled it & left some here in bite-size pieces, but Tru's not having anything to do with it, he just glanced at it as he walked by the dish. aaaaaaaaaaauuuuuuuuuuugggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh!
i went to see my ms dr today, good appointment, she's gonna let me do 3 days of iv steroids followed by 10 days of prednisone again...woohoo!
Okay, I'm tired, and Truman already went to bed, so I'll go see if he left me any room:-/
