I am not sure what to write I am trying to distract myself whilst she is at the vet sad I am waiting for the vet to call.

I am heartbroken.

Apparently they have managed to stabilise the seizures but she is very jaundiced.

My poor baby Charlie sad

Really sorry to hear this Crazy. Has the vet called yet?

CrazyDuchess Sun 01-Oct-17 16:43:38

Yes... apparently a bit better than she was this morning and not was not having seizures as previously reported.

Issues with liver - maybe pancreatitis? Vet said a lot but I struggled to contain what be was saying. Will conduct an ultrasound tomorrow possible x-ray. So she will be in for the next couple of days at least.

I feel a touch better but will be much happier when she is home with me!

Sending good thoughts and best wishes to you and your poorly cat. It's such a worry when they're not wellflowers

CrazyDuchess Sun 01-Oct-17 17:39:31

Thanks you... I am not usually one for tears but I have been in bits all day sad it's strange not to have here here.... her sister hasn't really noticed yet.

My girl had pancreatitis and was jaundiced. She was critically ill for a week but against all odd made a full recovery and is currently patrolling the living room. Hand hold, it’s horrible. Hope your cat is insured. Her bills including a laparotomy was £5000.

CrazyDuchess Sun 01-Oct-17 20:21:26

Nobsadly not insured.... has been on my to do list forever.... I will pay what is necessary to have Charlie home with me sad it's a real comfort that yours recovered - I am hoping for good news tomorrow.

Thank you for the hand hold - much needed xxx

I think my girls as caused by a lump in her neck. She came home with a feeding tube in her neck but she soon ate when I stopped feeding her milk.

My Charlie

Toddlerteaplease Sun 01-Oct-17 21:23:48

Gorgeous. He looks very intelligent!

CrazyDuchess Sun 01-Oct-17 21:36:11

Lol she is gorgeous - we named her Charlie as we wasn't sure if she was a she when we collected her. The dark hair under her eyes makes it look like she is wearing eyeliner grin she is gorgeous.

I hope to have her home soon!

Hoping for some good news for Charlie today flowers

Sorry to hear this. She is an absolute stunner. Hope she's home with you very soon. x

Still pretty critical but better than yesterday.. x ray /ultrasound showed no masses or tumours. Vet said there was a small amount of free fluid, but not enough to get a decent sample.

Still on medication to reduce the inflammation and fluids as she was very dehydrated but better than yesterday... I am hoping she will be even better when we go to visit tomorrow and pray for a weekend homecoming.

Thank you for asking xxx

Don’t rush him coming home. I had my girl home on day leave and with hindsight I wish I hadn’t. The idea was to see if she ate or drank or brightened up at home. She didn’t, She went straight up stairs and hid in the spare room. Something she never does. I wish I’d just left her in peace at the vet. (Who were excellent)

Toddlerteaplease Mon 02-Oct-17 20:19:33

I’m a peadiatric nurse and found it rally bizarre that she was on Morphine and ketamine and the same drugs and fluids we use at work. I did suggest popping her in s cor at work but my colleagues thought I’d be giving her all my attention! Can’t imagine why!!

CrazyDuchess Mon 02-Oct-17 20:35:01

Lol! No I absolutely won't rush her home she was/is still in a terrible state but going to see her tomorrow for cuddles may lift her and my spirits.

Toddlerteaplease Mon 02-Oct-17 20:59:36

I treasured the cuddles we had at the vet, she hates being picked up, but she reached out and touched my face. I know she appreciated my visits even though she was so ill. I stroked her head and she went to sleep on her final night at the vets. It was lovely. She’s now marching around my bed demanding fuss. I found out later that she was ‘famous’ at the vets. When I asked why they said because she’s got such a lovely personality and because she survived” I’m so proud of her. Hopefully your Lively girl will be back to normal soon.

I got to see my gorgeous Charlie today she is looking so much better - Still a little wobbly but so much better than Sunday- here's hoping for a weekend return!

Toddlerteaplease Tue 03-Oct-17 21:46:10

Glad to hear it. Magic sends healing purrs.

CrazyDuchess Tue 03-Oct-17 22:27:36

Toddlerteaplease Thu 05-Oct-17 09:23:28

How’s she doing?

CrazyDuchess Fri 06-Oct-17 07:42:06

Much much bettersmile vet will rub more blood tests today and will have a conversation later but I think we are still working on the assumption that Charlie will be home this weekend. I have missed her face!

Thanks for asking!
