Yesterday, Thursday, we spent most of the day at the vet doing a very slow IV drip - 5 hours of it - after which we returned home, Lolo vomited a little, THEN pee'd. Yay! I was so happy for this as he hadn't taken a wee in several days. During the night, which was restless, he did get up and took a long drink of water by himself...yay!! Today, we were back at the vet for a 4 hour session of an IV drip (a little bit faster this time)...during the drip, Lolo ate a few bisquits (yay!) and just after the vet took him off the drip, he pee'd again. I know these are small things and I shouldn't take too much joy in them, but they are improvements, right? Also, today Lolove was very alert and interested in all that was going on. He was even fidgety a bit during the IV as opposed to being lethargic. When we returned home, he didn't just get in his basket and sleep, but got up, hobbled downstairs (his paw is wrapped up because of the IV whatchamacallit in his front paw) to sit on a chair near where the dogs often go.
As I write this, Lolo is sleeping beside me; occasionally jerking or moving as cats do in teir sleep.
The vet said that we should light a candle for him that he makes it. I know he is still far from being 'out of the woods' and that I should also be prepared for a bad turn that could happen, but I just really want to believe that he will come through. He hears all your purrs and feels all your headbutts and nosetaps, he hears the prayers and feels the positive energy you are sending...I hoping above hope that he will use all this to pull through this horrible time. Poor baby, he is literally yellow. Anywhere where skin shows, it is yellow. I know this is a bad sign, but like I said, we are doing all we can to pull him through. I want to believe that he will make it. He must. I love him so!! He is LOLOve!!
