Thanks so much guys, you’re the best. Your words gave me comfort. I’m so sorry for China Doll having suffered with this awful disease. It’s so frightening. I went through this with my first tortie kitty Tess years ago- first heart failure and then kidney failure and anemia. It never gets easier. Sybil is home tonight and she is much better with the Lasix, she’s a bit out of it but happy to be home.
She has to be on 3 more meds now for her heart which means a gazillion pills. It’s very overwhelming. I’m going to try to get them compounded as liquids to make it easier. One med pimobendan is a huge pill twice per day, she needs lasix 2 x per day, Plavix 2 x per day, cerenia, and Pepcid once per day and the fluids still eod but now only 50ml. They changed the solution to lower salt content and added sugar to help her absorb it. I asked to switch to clavamox instead of clindamycin for her teeth. but it made her foam at the mouth. I don’t know how I’m gonna manage all this but somehow I have to. I was pretty hysterical last night but I feel calmer now that she’s home and this is not the end yet. Her liver is enlarged too so they said that could be cancer, but there are no masses. I hope not. I don’t understand it, I try to take the best care of my babies and they all get so sick.
I’m very worried about Quinn jumping on her. He never evolved from that as he grew up and I don’t want him stressing her out especially now. I feel so guilty now that he could have caused her stress and made this worse. He’s going for his check up and I’m going to get him on some meds to help this soon to give her a break. He wears a thunder coat and goes to time out when he gets too crazy or sprayed with water but it’s not enough. Today he was hissing at her and even growling because she smells like the hospital etc I think. I’ll do my best to stop him from stressing her out more.
Yep CkMP I can’t believe I’m going through this again so soon. I didn’t think anything could be harder than losing Wiz. I hope I can make it through this time. This is even harder because she’s all I have left of my old life and she’s my father’s cat. He is older and ill himself and he depends on her. I hope you are well, how are you doing? I’ll check back in and let you know how things go and post some pics. I just hope we have more time with her. Hugs to everyone 💕
