Meezer Rule Wednesday

My rule today is...don't go off your food, don't do sick-ups throughout the night and don't be too quiet and aloof underneath designer chairs, otherwise you will get dragged to the Vet Place for a check-up.

As you can gather, I am not feeling any better today, Meowmie spoke to Ben Vet this morning and he wants to see me ASAP. I have an appointment for 4.45pm. Please wish me luck...we are a little worried and understandably Meowmie is scared that the Lymphoma thing is back...

I don't want to be all doom and gloom so here's an old picture of me in a pink neckerchief that Nurse Ann dressed me up in about a year ago, when I was discharged from an overnight stay at the Vet Place:



UPDATE: Ise back from seeing Ben Vet; i'se had my temperature taken, Ben Vet had a very thorough feel around me and I had some blood tests. Everything is normal, apart from one thing...my ALT levels (which are liver-related) are higher than they should be, but thankfully not to such a level that makes Ben Vet nervous or worried. He said that he knew Meowmie would google ALT levels as soon as she got home so he explained to her that there are hundreds of reasons why ALT levels can be raised and he did not want her to become alarmed from what she would find on the interweb cos it can be caused by something very simple right through to the worst case scenario i.e. the lymphoma is back and affecting my liver. HOWEVER, Ben Vet said that if this was the case, he would expect me to be a very sick kitty indeed, which currently I am not. Ben Vet also suggested that the raised ALT levels might also just be my natural state...and I might just being having a reaction to the prepulsid tablets - and he agreed that Meowmie should stop giving me the prepulsid tablet in case that was the cause.

Ben Vet gave me a Zantac injection a B12 injection and some Sub-Q flooids. Ben Vet is going to closely monitor my ALT levels now, and if I don't perk up within 24 hours to call him for another appointment, he will also carry out further blood tests too. He also said that if I am being a fussy eater that Meowmie can try and tempt me with anything she liked....bye bye exclusion diet! YAY!

Thank you ALL for your purrs and kind thoughts, it means so much. Paws crossed that my ALT levals are indicating nothing serious! xxxx

Oh Storm, that stinks you had to go to the VET. I hope it turns out to be a simple little thing that is easy to fix, or goes away all by itself.

Big healing puuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrssssssssss

Princess said...

Oh I am so happy to come back and hear the uppiedate on your vet visit.
Well, Stormiekins, you must never forget that we are behind you in everything good or bad. Right now, enjoy those flooids. I hope you do not feel like a camel, and I am sure the shots were not pleasant.
Sunday, Blizzie was home and helped mommie with giving me my flooids and boy she messed up mommie. So I ended up getting 200 mls of flooids!! instead of the usual 100/week
OH MEOW, I was pretty ticked off about that, I looked absolutely silly!

hugs and smooches
Princess

Poppy Q said...

Hi Sweet storm, you have yourself a big old feast this weekend, and I hopes you keeps it all down and off the carpet.

My mum would feed Puss (her old cat) yoghurt and sometimes butter, as these were easy for her to lick up in little bits. The vet said that it was helpful as they were high in calories too!! What do you like to eat?

Ramses said...

Well Storm that's certainly one way to get off of your exclusion diet! Just don't go tellin' Tigmut'hep what to do or he'll be able to pig all my dinner like he used to! ;)

We're all purring that your fluctuation in ALT levels is down to something minor and that you're feeling loads better by the time you read this! :)

Purrs,
Ramses, Isis & kittens

Mickey said...

Oh Storm,I am so happy your condition is still good!! WOOT!!!!
It must be wonderful to get to eat what you want too!! I hope that works and you feel better and stay better :) I'll still PURR though,can't hurt ;)
Purrs Mickey

Sunny's Mommy said...

I hope you're feeling better today, Storm. That is not good news about the one blood test, but I hope it means nothing serious.

In the meantime, enjoy the food your Meowmie is giving you now :-) I bet it'll help you to feel better.

goldenshade said...

Enjoy being off your exclusion diet!!

We'll continue purring!
