I just got home from the vet for Chynna's follow up.
Her thyroid is 100% normal. It's right where he expects the levels to be for a healthy thyroid gland.
However, he was rather surprised that it was normal. She has every symptom associated with hyerthyroidism. He said that we'll keep an eye on that and perhaps repeat it again in a few months if she continues to lose weight.
He was concerned about the protein levels in her urine initially, but the results aren't too bad at all. She is in the "grey area" at 0.2. Failure is 0.4 and up from what I think he said.
Her blood pressure has come down considerably from 1 month ago. A month ago it was 240, today it was between 105 and 110
Chynna was so cute.
She laid in a "meatloaf" position on the scale while he did her blood pressure with the teensy weensy blood pressure cuff and she made bisquets on his hand and gave him kisses
He told me to feel free to just bring her by for a visit occasionally because the staff just love her
She has lost more weight though!
A month ago she was 5.17 kg, today she is 4.88 kg. She has lost 1/6 of a pound.
I have to weigh her on my scale today and then weekly to monitor her weight loss.
He also sent me home with 4 cans of k/d feline cat food. I have to gradually introduce it to her over a 2 week period. He said that at this point it's not really required to put her on a kidney diet, but doing it early will help slow down the progression kidney failure. So I agreed it was best to start her on it now.
She still has a bad tooth, but it doesn't seem to be bothering her or affecting her ability to eat. So we are going to wait on that as long as possible.
All-in-all he's very pleased with Chynna's health and told me that I was a good kitty mom
I'm so happy that my girl is feeling better and that she isn't seriously ill. So is my bank account
I still owe them $176 but I'll pay that at the end of this month. $600 was quite the unexpected expense and not one that I can really afford with my income, but you can't put a price on love
and I love my baby so much
Thanks for all of the TCS vibes! They sure helped!
Chynna sends you all lots of nose kisses
