What ever it was, Greg is better now.
Less drowsy, less dizzy and he could still eat a cow in one sitting.

Still, when is the right time to let go..?
  • Mood: Worried
Took Greg to the vet again today. Not for a sonograph, but because lately he started pooping blood.
Again, he left a horrible impression and I had the feeling this time the vet wanted to euthanise him on the spot.
He got an infusion, more antibiotics, something for his liver and kidneys.
Whatever it is, it is terminal. Suggestions range from acute renal failure to cancer.
I could invest in an x-ray to see wether it's cancer, but I don't think I will.
If it's cancer, it can't be treated anyway, the treatment would kill poor Greg rather than the cancer.
If it's renal failure he shouldn't survive much more than the weekend.

I remember the hard times we had with Valina. How often we'd thought that this would be it, but the Lady made a surprise recovery every so often.

I'm not sure whether I should invest much hope in Greg. I'm willing to accept that he won't live to see his next birthday.

You've been such a wonderful companion, Greg. Please don't leave me...
  • Mood: Pain
Took the cats to the new vet on Wednesday.
Greg made a horrible first impression. I never really noticed, but he's pale and hypothermic. Yes, this time they succeeded taking his temperature. Being distracted by a tube of liver sausage, he didn't freak out at all. Taking blood was troublesome, though. After two drops he stopped giving. The vet suggested an infusion and trying it again afterwards.
Cindy, on the other hand, was as unproblematic as ever. Of course, taking her blood came with hissing and meowing, but she was far more cooperative than Greg.
I then spent half an hour waiting for the blood work and Greg's infusion.
It was horror. Most of the time I feared I wouldn't be able to take my tom back home again. I was really afraid that this time I'd be told that it was pointless to let him stay alive.
But good things come to those who wait... And as I was waiting...
First in were Cindy's results. Everything within normal parameters, creatinine a bit higher than it should be, but still completely normal for her breed.
After the infusion, Greg gave enough blood and surprised the vet with his near perfect values. White blood cells were up so he has an inflammation of somekind somewhere. If I were to guess, I'd say it's somekind of colitis which would also explain his diarrhea.
Greg's main problem seems to be of cardiovascular origin. I'm now left to figure out whether or not I should invest in a sonography of his heart or not.

Well, I went home with both of my cats, an antibiotic, something to restore the gut flora and a herbal remedy for Greg's circulation.
Greg is, so far, completely unproblematic when it comes to his tablets. He just sucks them up with his usual food. I can also see him improving. His poo is firmer and he manages to keep it in for longer. Now, if only he remembered that someone invented litterboxes and that pooping in boxes is cool.....
No improvement on the cardiovascular front so far. He's still shaky with cold paws and ears.
I think I'll be back at the vet's next week and have that sonography done. I think it would be stupid if Greg died from an avoidable problem.


Speaking of avoidable problems...
My car is on its way to a vehicle inspection sticker. I'm just four months late, but I can't have my car inspected as long as I'm at a hospital and I'm forbidden to drive anyway, right?
My brother and I also fixed that hole near my car wing I got from driving backwards too fast and hitting a fence. I still have one thing to fear: Schroedinger's electronics problem.
Sometimes I start my car and it tells me there's something wrong with the electronics, at other times everything is perfectly fine. Should that problem occur during the inspection...  Well. I hope they're able to figure out what's wrong, 'cause last time I went to the garage that problem wasn't there and you can't diagnose without the symptoms....
  • Mood: Cheerful
Last night I was married to the man of my dream(s) and we had a toddler named Russell, or Russ, for short.
Unfortunately I decided to cut the plants at home which, in turn, incited the plants to abduct my son. Which made my husband very angry and our relationship kind of broken.
I remember me breaking a lot of acrylic glass, but also saving my son, my marriage, a lot of kittens, preparing the perfect Curry, exorcising a couple of ghosts, climbing through kitchen cupboards to get to the next floor and a couple of other things. Like wishing the Queen a happy Boxing Day and she corrected me that it was only Christmas Day. Or a couple of random British actors popping up in my living-room.

All in all a wonderful dream.
Five Stars, would dream again.

Good night, I'm going back to bed and hope I'll dream of something like my son's next birthday, a family holiday or any other happy continuation of last night's dream....

I got a complaint regarding the last picture.
"That's not the kind of coffee maker I use..."
Well, here you go....
