Well I talked to the vet again last night. Jordan's latest blood tests look good. Of coarse no gaurntees he doesn't have cancer, but the pred has worked to bring his blood calcium down. He's at the top end of normal, but from what my vet considered very elevated this is a big improvement. The only thing that was high was his globulin (SP???) which is apparently a sign of a viral infection. Which makes perfect sense since he has a URI. So the vet feels that he has feline herpes, something I knew, and should be on L-Lysine for the rest of his life. I feel bad for him because he is currently on 4 different med each 2x a day, but the Clavamox is temporary. The vet wants him to stay at 10 mg of pred for another week and then we will retest his blood to see where his calcium is. If it gets low enough, then we can begin to drop the pred. He is starting to look better. He's not hiding, and he slept with me for a little while last night. I'm hoping that this URI clears up fairly soon. The vet said if he continues to have a problem we will have to put him on a differnt med. So for now we are on the upswing, I suspect that the roller coaster will continue, but I'm trying very hard to appreciate every day with him, and hope that they will soon be back to my naughty Jordan Noah.
