Not A Good Day...

Meowmie did not go to work today cos she was still feeling ill from Snowy Vienna, she explained that she needed a day of TOTAL rest in order to have the strength to go to work tomorow - she HAS to go tomorrow cos she has an important meeting in the morning.

After Meowmie had her breakfast she then proceeded to do a load of moving things around!!! She removed her old pooter from her bedroom and put it in the recycling bay downstairs, then she moved the mini-stereo from the sitting room and set it up in the bedroom and then she unpacked her new Harmon Kardon Soundstick speakers and set them up in the sitting room. Her main music system now is basically her MacBook hooked up to the new HK speakers - which sound awesome!!! They really do give a clear sound with a superb mid-range and bass..they also light up blue when powered up...hey, I happen to know my stuff when it comes to music....don't be so surpirsed at this little kitty! They do look weird though....



After Meowmie had exchuasted herself and collapsed onto the sofa she noticed me acting weird again...I was straining to go to the loo, not just in my tray but on my various beds, the rug and the sofa, but nothing was coming out...So off we went to see Ben Vet who luckily had a slot free at short notice. By the time I got there I was straining bloody urine drops - Ben had a feel around and more blood came out of me along with my urine. Ben said he suspects it is just a common but severe Cystitis again, possibly bought on by stress (this what happens when cat-sitters come into my home!!!) or my weakened immune system (hmm, can't blame the cat-sitter ofr that one). However he said that we need to keep it in mind that one of the medicines I was on during my chemo - cyclophosphamide - can cause Haemorrhagic Cystitis, which is cystitis but with an added risk of haemorraging.

Ben Vet reassured Meowmie that I was OK for now and he gave me shot of morphine-like drugs to relieve any pain cos I can't have anti-inflammatories cos I take a steroid drug. He then gave me a shot of anti-biotics which will last for two weeks, this should fight any infection I have. I've also got some Cystaid capsules to take twice a day. Meowmie just gave me one but I hated it and threw it up again. YUK!

I am chilling with Castle now and the morphine drugs have definitely eased the pain down there. Ben Vet said if the treatments administered today don't work then he needs to investigate further. Today marks 11 months post-diagnosis of my lymphoma, and I know everyday is a bonus especially as I have now exceeded the 6-9 month 'average' survival time. I am the Furry Fighter and will fight this as best as I can!



PS - check out my whiskers by bigifying the picture! They are growing nicely now :)

Hang in there, Storm. Our brother Vincent fought the cancer for 3 1/2 years and he was a complete marshmallow. You are the furry fighter, so cystitis is no match for you. We will send you some purrs because we hope you feel better soon.

Your whiskers look so good we can see them without biggifying the photo! YEAH.

I hope you feel better and that this is merely a little flare up of a run of the mill cystitis (bad enough). I would hate to think it was something else. Be well.

Purrs to you and yours

I really hope that your momma feels better for her meeting tomorrow.

P.S. I had no idea how big your nose was until this picture. You are a huge cat!

Samantha & Tigger said...

We are sorry your Mommy is not feeling good and that you aren't either. We purr and purray for you both. Your whiskers are looking wonderful!

I hope your Mum feels all right for her meeting. I hope you get to feeling better right away, too. Your whiskers are awesome!

I like all the Doctors on Doctor Who, but I think Jon Pertwee is my favorite.

Forty Paws said...

Bless your heart. It's always something, isn't it? You must be a "sensitive" kitty like Obi. Stress brings on cystitis in him too. We're still sending lots of purrs, headbutts and nose kisses to you. Hang in there dude!
