Troublesome Tuesdays and Such

Today is Tuesday. Bow and G.T. went to the V-E-T on Thursday last week to check into their ailments and such. Bow has been on his daily prednisolone, and also has added an antidepressant to help with his appetite, and has added Calcitriol to help with his fluids. He is also getting 100mg of fluids with Vitamin B complex and keratin every other day. His creatine and BUN levels are steadily increasing though. He goes from his heated cat bed to his hammock several times per day, and also spends quite a while outside in the enclosure.

G.T. has a wound from his benadryl shot. The V-E-T shaved it and told me to keep it semi-moist and cleaned up, what with G.T. licking it, etc. He isn't overly enthused with me putting gentomycin on it. It is kinda gross looking, looks like an abscess. Yuck.

In other noos, Maw has been sick for several weeks with a bad sinus infection and has been on 2 different rounds of antibiotics. We aren't thrilled with this, but can't help it much. She has been sick and in bed quite a bit of the time which makes it difficult for us to computate to each of you!

We're hoping that the correct Ham-Micks are making it to the appropriate people!!! We've sent out quite a few, and are hoping that they are getting where they are supposed to go!

We'll try and keep y'all updated as life progresses around here.

Hang in there GT! Don't be likkin' that sore spot. The medicine will work but you gotta leave it on there!!
You hang in there too, Maw!

Oh no. I hope GT's wound heals soon, and that your Maw can get rid of that nasty sinus infection. I do not know much about CRF and what these additional treatments mean to Bow, but I can tell you take very good care of him.

We hope Maw is taking care of herself in between taking care of the fur babies. We send purrs and tail wags to all.

Those hammocks are awesome looking.

Tyler said...

Oh Maw, we were wondering if you were under the weather. We're so sorry to read that you've been quietly suffering from a sinus infection for so long. Those are miserable. We wouldn't have ordered the hammocks knowing you were feeling ill. Maybe you need to take care of yourself so that you can get better. More rest, chicken soup, lots of clear tea, water, eat foods rich in antioxidants. Please be good to yourself.
