Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for Cap'n. He is still VERY ill. He went to the vet on Wed and she didn't have a lot of hope. He just wasn't gaining weight and that is what he must do to survive. She gave him 2 bags of fluid under his skin, took blood and prescribed medications to deal with his nausea. Wed night Jess and I were really upset because he wouldn't eat and any time we moved him he would foam at the mouth. I won't EVER keep an animal alive in pain if there isn't any real hope of recovery - I saw a neighbor do this and it was so awful for the animal. Thursday the vet called and said that his body was killing his red blood cells. She put him on steroids. That afternoon he meowed and led J to the fridge to his food. When she opened a new can and let him sniff it, he started eating before she could even put it down. Friday morning he went back to the vet and had gained a little bit of weight. His blood work was much better and she was far more optimistic than she had been. He has been eating without needing to be force fed and is even leading us to his food at times. Plus he is meowing to us again when he wants something. He is getting grumpy and starting to demand his own way. That has me more relieved than anything else. He was so passive before, and this means he has the energy to be grumpy and to tell us what he wants! This is the first time since he came back that I thought he had a chance to make it. I give credit to my amazing, strong, smart daughter. She is the one who set up the feeding schedule, made sure we could get him out of the hidey holes he finds, and she has done most of the feedings. She is amazing with him. Again, thanks for the prayers for my furbaby. We all appreciate it.
