Hi everyone,

 

It's amazing what a difference a few days will make in a situation!  I just wanted to let you all know that I'm doing much better, and Spot is, too, though he's definitely NOT a Happy Camper at times!!  My daughter who lives with us has really stepped up to the plate and has been giving Spot his meds.  At this point he's being given the liquid that I initially got just to use it.  Also, I need to take lessons from her...I know Spot can sense my nervousness and react to that.  Also, I need to master the technique she uses, but at this point she's giving meds when she leaves for work so early.  I told her to wake me up (I'm retired) so I can "practice".  Anyway, Spot is getting what he needs, and his appetite is GREAT...I think due to one of the meds he's taking.  He also seems to be tolerating everything very well.

 

I'm leaving tomorrow for a five day trip to the Grand Canyon (I live in the LA area) which has been planned for about 8 months.  One day I came so very close to canceling.  I am so relieved that my daughter has willingly started giving Spot his meds and has taken an interest in his care.  Very relieved.  My husband and I are both gone next week, so he will be alone most of the day.  I got an automatic feeder that has ice packs so he will have food during the day.  He only eats wet food, so this one is made to keep the food cool to prevent spoilage.  This should work out well, and he will be ready to eat again when she gets home.

 

Again, I want to thank all of you for your support and words of wisdom.  I plan to get the pill form of his meds next time around.  I also plan to become at expert at giving him his meds...minus all the anxiety from ME.  This board is truly amazing and filled with many giving and caring individuals.  Your words have meant EVERYTHING to me. 

 

I'll be back on Friday and will give you all an update on Spot's and my progress.  I know there are no guarantees with this course of treatment.  Vet said each case is so individual.  As I said, I'm commited to go the distance with this Big White Cat.  He's my boy and I can't imagine life without him.  One day at a time, right?!!  Thanks again, everyone.  Carol

I'm so glad the meds are helping Spot!  It's wonderful to see a change like that in our pets.  I'm glad your daughter is able to give him his medicine, too.

 

Hope you have a great time on your vacation.
