Please keep the faith... I understand it's hard work.. and I probably will understand better once tanny comes home.
It started about 2 months ago, i came home to find tanny (2 year old kitty) screaming in pain, brought him in emergency vet and he was blocked. He stayed in the hospital for 1 week, where he blocked up again twice, so they opted for the surgery. he came home 1 week later, then 2 days later, he has a nasty infection, brought him back in emergency... they started me giving him sub q, and two shots a day of antiobiotics. then home again... on july 6th?? 7th?? we brought him back, he had stopped eating period and peeing all over the place. That is when they diagnosed the fatty liver disease... (yep the yellowing of the ears... i didn't even notice it), then he blocked up AGAIN (due to all the infection). SO, they gave him another surgery to re-open urethra, and all the while, eating through a tube. I REALLY wanted to put him down, the money wasn't the problem (we are on a payment plan for the rest of our lives : ) it was the stress for him and I, plus the other 2 kittys that we live it. Had conference with all vets involved and they all beggd me to keep him alive and have faith, as they do... two weeks later, he is peeing very well (still a cathether though), and has ate two days in a row now. he is coming home on saturday.
feel free to email me anytime. seems we are both on the same page. if you
want you can private email me and i'll give you my email at work (much easier for me to get into).
