You read it right! Today marks 120 days that we are fighting my diarrhea... Can you believe it? 120 days! Whew! That is a lot of soft poop right there! But there are some good news, and I am here to ask you to send some good, special, extra strong purrs my way these next couple of days furriends, because I will need all the vibes I can get!
For the last week my V-E-T has had me take this thing called DiaGel, a natural gel for diarrhea. I was going to start a new steroid treatment last week, but an online furriend of meowmy from The Cat Site told her about DiaGel, and meowmy discussed with the V-E-T. He said it was good for accute diarrhea and he was almost sure it wouldn't work for me, but nonetheless it was worth trying it because if it did work, it would spare me from steroids... DiaGel is usually used in a single dose (and it is very expensive too, $12 a dose!), and sometimes it is used for up to 5 days... The V-E-T decided to do a 7-day course with me, twice a day. Well, lo and behold, it worked! For the last 4-5 days or so, I have had formed poop! Formed poop furriends! Wow!!!
The thing is, my last dose was tonight, and nobody knows what is going to happen... I really need to hold my own without Diagel so I don't need the steroids... Please, please furriends, purr hard for me! Purr really hard for tootsie poopie from now on!
On another note, I am also off of my Stomatitis medication until March when I will have another liver panel to check if my ALT levels have returned to normal. My gums are starting to get bad, so a dental might be in order soon... I don't want that :( After March I will go back into the medication and will run another test after a while to see if that medication affects my liver too - if it does (the V-E-T doubts it, but meowmy wants to be on the safe side), meowmy says she might talk to my dentist about surgery... We will see... I hope not.
Anyways furriends, I will leave you here so you can start purring! Purr for tootsie poopsie! ooommmmm
Thank you furriends,
