First, let me apologize for meowmy; she has been SO busy, things have been kind of crazy here, so she took over the compooter and hasn't let us post on the bloggie... Furriends, please forgive her - we already punished her with a good time out, she is learning her lesson, we promise!
Second, I wanted to purrsonally thank you all for the love, purrs and prayers... Oh, and for the New Year's wishes too! You are very special to us, and your love and support make all the difference in the World to us!
Now let's go on to the updates:
I am eating normally, and doing really well when it comes to my diet, meowmy is very pleased with me! I don't even need to be spoon-fed anymore! I eat all my stinky goodness and my dry food too like a good boy!
The prednisolone by itself didn't work, so the V-E-T added back the yucky metronidazole. So, get this furriends, I am taking: Prednisolone every other day, my Stomatitis medicine once a day, Metronidazole twice a day, and the probiotics... whew! It's a LOT!
The good news is, meowmy looked at the box and she said wow.... Bugsy, I think I see sooooome form here! She said my poop is not all formed, but about 1/3 of it was formed! Well, that is a start! For someone who was pooping liquid, that is definitely an improvement! Ok furriends, sorry for the TMI, got a bit too excited about my poop there for a bit!
I still have some ways to go, and then of course making sure that I will be ok once I am out of the meds - but that will be later... Let's not borrow trouble now, like you hoomans like to say, right?
Now moving on to Gracie - Do you all Know Gracie? Here is how she came to live here, if you haven't met her yet...
Meowmy was feeding her pill treat a few days ago when she heard a crack. She thought Gracie had bitten the pills, but noticed that Gracie was opening her mouth very wide as she ate, and that was concerning... She started watching her closely... All of the sudden she started having a hard time swallowing, and she stopped eating as with every bite she would just open her mouth as though she was in pain.
Time to rush her to the dentist.
Luckily, they took her in on the same day... She had to have surgery to extract her canine, shave the bone, put a small bone implant. The tooth was so diseased that it created a hole, an oral-nasal fistula, and she will need to have a second reconstructive surgery in about a month or so, to close that hole. It was also infected, so the cavity was left open to drain. The tooth was a mess! If anyone has the curiosity to see it, the picture is here. I am not posting because it is too ugly!
She is in a lot of pain, but today she started eating again, thank goodness!
This didn't come in a good time... Meowmy is broke... She was already in bad shape with all my vet bills, now with this surgery she is beyond broke! The vet did give meowmy a discount, but even so, the bill was still $400, and then there is the other surgery coming up, and I have a feeling that bill ain't gonna be pretty.
But anyways, these are the news around here... now I would like to ask for purrs for the two of us, if you would be so kind to spare some purrs for Gracie too...
