Grey is doing much better. Here's what his Mom said:
We took Grey for his check-up EKG on Monday. The Dr was very impressed w/ his improvement. His heart is stable, beating at 120 as opposed to the 240 it was beating when he first went in there on Feb 20th. He was also impressed w/ the responsiveness in his rectum & his legs. His blood work was good too, there were only 2 things a little concerning. He's a little anemic, so they gave us a liquid vitamin to give him once a day & his TSH was a little on the high side, 5.4 & 5.8 is the highest acceptable, so they did a T4 only test & will call us today w/ those results to see if we need to increase his thyroid medicine to 2 full tablets a day instead of the 1 & 1/2.
Grey also has quite a bit of muscle deterioration in his hips. They think he is a candidate for physical therapy, so Mike & I are meeting w/ the physical therapist next Thurs for the initial consultation to see if he is a candidate. I'll let you know what they say.
We've discovered that Grey can "walk" if we hold his hind legs & let him walk on his front legs. He gets very happy when we do that because now he gets to go where he wants to instead of where we think he wants to go. He actually starts to purr when he's "walking" around. It's sooo cute. Hopefully the physical therapy will work & he will be able to walk on his own, soon. :)
So he takes 1/2 a beta blocker twice a day
thyroid twice a day
blood pressure, 1/4 tablet once a day
Pavix, 1/4 tablet once a day
liquid vitamin/mineral once a dayWe'll update y'all on what the physical therapist says.
Maw has to go watch a sticky person today. We won't be able to visit blogs. We are behind by like a hunnert responses, so we must apologize for Maw's lack of help.
