My little Tommy started getting sick on Wednesday, didn't look much better on Thursday and when Friday got here, he was very lethargic and listless, would not eat or drink so...off to the vet we went. His first time in a carrier since he was fixed in February and he didn't even cry. After 2 hours, and blood tests and $327 we were told he is severely dehydrated and in kidney failure. I had 2 options, leave him at hospital for 2 days of IVs at $125 a day or take him home and do the Sub Q hydration, with no guarantees, but sometimes it can reverse. Needless to say, I've had a very busy weekend of loving, coaxing to eat and a neighbor that helped with the hydration and giving him an antibiotic tablet each morning....! I am just heartbroken and so sad for him...he is down to 5 pounds. He turns a year old this month and has had no problems. He has not been vomiting nor had diarrhea so cannot understand the dehydration. He finally threw up on Saturday evening. After the treatment last evening....he is on an eating binge and is visiting the litter box again...not real perky yet...but so much better than the limp dishrag he was over the weekend. The "girls" are all checking on him quite often! I hope this means he is taking a turn for getting the kidney functions back, but I am still guarded on that...Dr. M told me to bring him back for a recheck tomorrow. He actually was up and waiting to eat this morning and is now sleeping peacefully. I guess prayers, sheer will and lots of TLC does work. Other than that, I had a rather quiet and peaceful weekend. I hope all of you had a marvelous Father's day weekend with lots of family and friends to celebrate with so you could make/share lots and lots of memories. Here is photo of Tommy I made on Tuesday when he was feeling okay. He wanted me to hold him...lol....no he is not spoiled rotten....ROFL!
