The Mom is thinking about starting something new on the blog so I get more time on it. She thinks that every other Monday should be Milita's Monday instead of Mancat Monday. What do you think about that? I think it's a great idea!
As many of you know from last week's Milita's Monday, I have been fighting off pneumonia with the help of Baytril, Clavamox, and Prednisolone.
The Mom noticed within a few days of me starting the meds that I was getting very sick. Let's just say my tummy didn't feel so good. The Mom became very worried about me when she saw I wasn't eating hardly anything and worried that I might get fatty liver disease (whatever that is). So she called Dr. Stabby who said it was fine to take me off the Clavamox. Was I ever happy about that! I demanded the Mom feed me the next morning, which made her very happy.
The Mom says she is going to have Dr. Stabby make a note in my chart not to give me Clavamox anymore unless there is nothing else because it always makes my tummy so sick.
That Mom insisted on sticking me into the PTU again last Tuesday. I made my displeasure known by singing the song of my people.
Then they took me to the horrible x-ray room. I squirmed so much that they had to try to get an x-ray of my chest three times, and each time they stretched me out, I got more and more annoyed! I don't like being stretched out and flattened like a pancake!
In the end, all my x-rays came out crocked, but they were still able to see my lungs well enough.
The vet came in and listened to me and poked at me. She told the Mom that I sounded good, and the x-rays showed that my pneumonia had cleared up a lot. She said she was impressed because she doesn't usually see pneumonia clear up so fast - there was just a little still in there.
So the plan is for me to finish out the Baytril (mrrrr) and then taper me off the Prednisolone and see what happens. They said if I start wheezing or coughing again, then I probably have asthma. I hope not because I really hate taking medication - even that Prednisolone that is supposed to taste like chicken liver.
Now that I am feeling better, I better not have to see Dr. Stabby again for a long time!
Please be sure to stop by on Wednesday. Someone has a special day!
