First of all, thank you so much for all the love, prayers, and purrs... It has been very special and comforting to receive all the messages, and know that we have been on your thoughts and prayers... Thank you so much for your support <3
Hope's situation has been very confusing and frustrating... Today was day 6 of Metronidazole, and she is still having explosive diarrhea. Luckily, she is only pooping once a day, but this once is nothing as it should be this far at the treatment.
She is definitely feeling much better overall - she is no longer hiding... Not yet playing chase, but is hanging on the living room and on the window sill. She is eating normally, grooming, and she does play a little with the turboscratcher and the flingama string
I called her vet today, and he said to give her another 5 days of metronidazole, and if she doesn't get better, to take her to a specialist for a biopsy and an ultrasound.
He also told me to Start giving her Amforol again, to control the diarrhea, and even though I do not like that medicine as it makes her poop like white cement, I do think this time might be necessary.
I am worried, and don't want to think about this biopsy business... I do think I might take her for my other vet first, if this treatment doesn't work, for a second opinion, before doing something that drastic.
I do think a blood test and x-ray can be helpful before biopsy, and if so, I would like to do that first. But first things first... I will hope and pray for these 5 extra days of metro to work... The clock is ticking...
Thank you again for your support.
