The roller coaster ride begins again.
I got the phone call today from the vet and the blood chem results were back.
The vet said that dylan's levels were elevated "slightly" but she wasn't that concerned because his clinical exam showed such signs of improvement.
She is thinking at the next follow up that we will do another ultra sound.
This seems like such an expensive viscous cycle...and although she is the vet out of the four at the hospital who has treated the most HL cats, I am not sure that I don't want to follow Hissy's advice and research local experts and see what else can be done...because the clock is ticking.
And he may look better and act better...but aren't the numbers what count?
Tonight my boyfriend has insisted that I leave the house since I have spent my week off "in" with Dylan, only leavin to take him to the vet and to go to the grocery store. (there are plenty of things to do at home right?)
But he bought "surprise" tickets to a jazz concert in NYC for 7:30 tonight and said it would be good for my mental health...and at this point, he is probablyl right.
I spent $50 on 6 cat books today from amazon (bought all used so I could buy more books) they should be here in a few days)
I got everything from holistic cat care, to dealing with jealousy with a partner and a pet, to dealing with grief of dying pet....to a book of poetry written about a beloved cat. (yes I was kitty obsessed as usual today)
I don't even remember all the books i bought. If any are great, I will certainly let you all know.
I am off for my last work day tomorrow...so will prob. check this when I get home tonight.
could use encouragement....am stressed to the max.
Am drinking a nice cold beer instead of getting ready for this jazz concert.
And I love jazz, especially live.
But, I hate to leave dylan at all lately.
I plugged feliway back in, since he has AGAIn, suddenly decided, new yummy food is not so interesting. He had midnite/ almost me waking up snack and hasn't shown much interest in anything since.
There might be a feeding tube in his future afterall.
