Tama-Chan: Meeiaow, Dear Friends! I hope you are not getting fed up with seeing my face on the blog... I had to go back to see Dr. C yesterday morning because there had been no clear improvement in my condition, aside from an initial positive reaction to the injectable cortisone. This time, #1 had to leave me there part of the day so Dr. C could get x-rays, draw blood and study the situation closely. The upshot is that we are still not sure what the matter is. There are several possibilities, some of which are not very nice, and, like Genji, I have tested positive for the Coronavirus. My blood work is pretty good overall, but my cholesterol levels are elevated (echoes of Tommy!) and my blood serum is looking very milky where it should be transparent. My heart is also a tiny bit more enlarged than it should be. So a bunch of elements, but they don't really come together into anything clear-cut at this stage. So, Dr. C has put me on a stronger antibiotic (Baytril) and she gave me a diuretic shot. She did notice that whereas I had been wheezy, I was getting a little sneezy, which is a good sign. So, we are being hopeful for now, and I have another appointment with Dr. C next Tuesday morning (plus phone check-ins every morning and Dr. C gave #1 a bunch of meds in case I might need them between now and then).
I must say I was very happy to get home yesterday afternoon. We had dinner guests so poor #1 then had to get a meal on the table in only just over an hour. She was supposed to be away all day today but she has canceled so she can be with me. We are all keeping everything crossed that I turn the corner and start feeling much better over the weekend.
And as it is Feline Friday, here are pictures of the other Chans too!
