I may have been celebrating too early

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well late last week, Jordan stopped eating properly. I'm going to call the vet to make an appointment, but I'm preety sure he's going to have to go back on the prednisone. I believe his blood calcium is spiking again. He is barely eating anything, but is running around playing. This is what happend last time his blood calcium spike. So I'm going to do my best to get him in tomorrow night. I would take him tonight, but it's the last class of the symester and I have a presentation to do so I can't miss class.

For anyone who has been following Jordan's story for the last 2 years, I'm sure you can guess how frustrated / sad / upset I am about this set back. He is such a sweet boy, but HATES the vet so much. I always feel bad when he has to go there so often.

I'm so sorry you have to keep going through this. I haven't read all of your story about Jordan but I understand the frustration over repeated vet visits, and the stress.

for Jordan, and for you.

Were you able to get him into the vet today?

Yes he's got an appointment tonight at 7PM. This is very good because I think he ate about 1.5 oz (1/2 a can of fancy feast) & 1/2 a jar of baby food yesterday. That's all no dry food. He's a little sleepy, but otherwise seems OK. This morning He may have eaten 1/4 of a can of Weruva, which as some of you know is low in callories. I'm most concerned over the fact that he's not even eating his baby food. When he's been sick before he lived off chicken baby food for about 2 weeks.

Jordan has struggled with Idopathic Hypercalcimia for 2 years now. In the beginning it was believed to be intestinal lymphoma, now they don't know. He's had 2 different ultra sounds, countless blood tests. He's been on & off differnt meds along the way for various reasons. He was on Prednisone for over 1 -1/2 years. After I took him off the lactulose his blood calcium started to drop, I figured I had found the problem & decided I wanted to try to get him off. He was good for the first 2 weeks & then last week sometime at the end of the week his appitite started to decline again. His blood calcium has been everywhere from 10.1 (near the high end of normal) up to 13 or 14. I refused to do exploritory surgeory, so there is no way to completely rule out lymphoma, but the length of time he has lived after this all started makes lymphoma unlikely.
