Tuesday Tale and Health Update to update

I found a beautiful water fall where I could ponder life,
I tried to make friends but the natives were 
restless...

 I'm really not sure why?
I tried my best to assure them I was friendly.....
*******************************

Dearest friends...I had a recheck at my vet yesterday for my kidney values
They actually were about the same; however, I had kind of a bad weekend with
big tummy distress (in both ways).  So my vet rubbed all over my tummy and 
actually felt that my intestines appeared to be a bit swollen.  There are many
things that could cause this but we are HOPING it is just from all my distress over the weekend.
Another big concern is I have lost some more weight...YIKES. In February at my senior check up I was a tad over 9 lbs.  Yesterday I was 6.5 lbs.  I have not stopped eating one bit..even with my
tummy distress.  Mom says she can handle the kidney stuff if we can just get the intestines
back to normal size and get some weight on me.
My wonderful vet gave me an antibiotic shot Monday (I've had tummy issues before kinda like IBD and the antibiotic solved it) and he gave me a nausea shot.  Mom is supposed to call him tomorrow to let him know how my night went.  If things go well he would like to give me a cortisone shot on
Thursday to help the intestinal inflammation.  Cortisone is not good for kidneys but as mom says we have to pick our battles.  Getting old is not for sissies but my peeps and I are really gonna 
try to nip this mess in the bud and most of all we would greatly appreciate
some POTP.   I'm not laying around doing nuttin, but I'm not 100% either
We truly thank you all from the bottom of our hearts 
Hugs two seniors Madi and Mom


TUESDAY UPDATE 8/8/17

Madi had a good sleep last night, no tummy distress.
We are giving her small meals several times a day.
This morning she has had 2 servings of fishy goodness.
I have 3 kinds of kibble here that she likes or has liked.
She has a kibble buffet fit for a Diva.
She has sampled all of them this morning.
We will continue with the Cerenia and call her vet back 
on Thursday with an update.  
Thank you so very much for all your meows, barks and prayers

  33. We're so sorry you're not feeling good, Madi. There was a period where Kitty wasn't eating - the vet told me I'd have to force feed her - but I tried a few treats as a last ditch effort ... and VOILA! Before I knew it, the bag was gone. Not exactly healthy ... and not something the vet would recommend on a regular basis ... but eating a little bit made her feel good enough to start eating other things. Please know we're thinking of you and praying for you, Madi, BFF :)

  34. Beautiful Madi, I will keep you in my prayers. Please feel all better soon.

  35. After yesterday's health update, we are elated to hear that there was some signs of improvement overnight. We sure hope the antibiotics do the trick and you get better. Mom says she would love to drop a few pounds, but we do understand that in this case it is not for a good reason. Keep eating, Madi, and feel better. You know you have all the POTP we can muster and lots of good prayers from Mom.

    Hugs and Woos - Lightning and Misty (and Mom too)

  36. Madi, we think you might have better luck if those fishies couldn't see your grille! On another note, you need to eat some more and put on a few pounds. Just follow mom's diet plan and you will gain a few pounds in no time! Seriously, crossing our paws for you to get healthier!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
