Monday morning update

I was much more active through the night and the Toy Man didn't think I needed to go to the VET but Meowmy knew better. I had a couple of bites of stinky goodness and off to the VET I went.

In a lucky turn of events my Dr. Ian saw me!! He knows me and I trust him. He thought I looked great and gave Meowmy some appetite pills for me to have. My temp is normal. Then they stole some blood. Meowmy and I waited and waited and waited and waited in the waiting room. Woofies came in a lot.

Then Dr. Ian called us back for the results. I have no white blood cells and my hemocrit is high. He ran the test twice and is now sending it to an outside lab too. It could be the "C" word or a number of other things so we're trying not to panic yet. But I'll tell you, Meowmy's forte is NOT staying calm when I'm not normal. To say she's freaking out with no real results but bad blood values is an understatemtn.

I did get some fluids so I'm better hydrated now. The VET is going to call Meowmy tonight with the results of the 3rd blood test. Chase is hissing at me because I smell funny and Meowmy has to go back to work now. I guess we just have to wait and see. I'm not allowed to have my appetite pills yet but at least I'm hydrated.

Oh Latte, I was hoping your VET would find something simple and easy to fix. My mommy has a tendency to panic too so she'll send your mommy calming vibes.

I hope you keep drinking lotsa fluids and eating. I also hope your tests come back with good news.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Oh Latte, we are so sorry to hear that your blood tests didn't give any results. We are purring and praying for you.

Being hydrated is definitely a good thing. They helped me feel much better when I was at the vet a week and a half ago. We never did find out what was wrong with me, just that I had a high fever and high leukocytes, so I had an infection of some sort.

My mom sympathizes with your mom. She was so worried about me when I was sick, especially since my temperature was so high, and tissues would start to be damaged if my temperature didn't go down.

Merlin and I hope you feel better soon. We are sending our strongest healing purrs your way, and praying for you to feel better soon.

The Furry Kids said...

Thank you for the update. We're so glad that Dr Ian was there! We're sending out lots of purrs and purrayers for you guys. Momma knows what your Meowmy is going through. She doesn't do too well with waiting on blood test results. She didn't sleep or eat for two weeks when EG's liver enzymes were icky. And she also knows about how Daddys think everything's ok, but that moms know something's off. Momma's sending lots of hugs to your Meowmy. She's a great Meowmy and she's taking the best care of you that she possibly can.

Tybalt said...

Oh, Latte . . . how very scary for you and your Meowmy! I am purring and praying for you lots and lots. I really, really want it to be nothing too serious and am hoping that you get better very soon.

Mickey said...

Sammawow said...

Latte, we are both purrrrring as hard as we are able so that your blood tests will come back OK. And we're certainly purrrrrrring for your Meowmy too - our mom tends to panic too so we know how that goes. Hopefully all the worrying will be over soon. We're glad that you feel a little better being hydrated.

Purrrrrrs, China Cat & Willow
and calming thoughts from our mom to yours.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

She was waiting for the x-ray pictors an blood tests an feelin guilty cuz if Bonnie was sick, it was cuz she gotted me. Turned out Bonnie was just stressed out and refusin to eat.

Oh no Latte! We hopes you get better soon and it's nothing too serious. Thank goodness your meowm knew you needed to go the the V-E-T. Our mommy knows from past experiences with Meezers that our symptoms can be very subtle when we really aren't well at all. The Siamese who preceded us never stopped purring, even when she was so, so sick. Feel better soon! Purrss to you and your family!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Latte, this quite frightening news! I hope that this is just some odd thing (as you have had such odd things in your life) and that you will be okay. I would help your human, but I suspect I would just freak out as much as she is!

Tyler said...

Ah Sweetie, I'm so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. Hugs to your mommy. It must be so hard for her to leave you at home with Chase being a stinker and all. I hope you can curl up with Kaze and sleep your troubles away. I pray with all my heart that this is nothing serious. And if it is serious, I pray that you all have to strength to get through this.

Mom, know that you have all of us here on your side, so you are not alone. We have your back. I would be feeling just as worried and upset as you are.

Love, Tyler's mom Lynn
