Lolove update - Wednesday evening

First of all, THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR WONDERFUL WORDS OF HOPE AND ENCOURAGEMENT!! Lautrec has been smothered with cyber kisses and serenaded with cyber purring...thank you so much for thinking of him!!

Today, we again spent several hours at the vet. Two of those hours were spent just sitting in the vets office while Lautrec received an IV drip...at first, he vomited about 5 minutes into the drip, but once the drip rate was slowed down, he didn't vomit any more. After about 20 minutes on the drip, he lifted his head and started taking notice of his surroundings which was a good sign since when we got to the vet, he just lay there in his wool blanket lined carrying bag seemingly oblivious to the world..not even reacting in his trademark way to the word 'chicken'. After the drip was finished and we had to change rooms, he was very vocal in his Siamese way...good!

Once we were home, he went to the food dish and had a few..just a few, bisquits...good! He hadn't eaten anything since yesterday though during the day he did have some milk. But to be honest, before going to the vet and on the way there (a 45 minute drive), he was so listless and unresponsive that I was fearing the worst.

Tomorrow (Thursday) is another day...I hope that during the night he finds it in his heart to go to the toilet (it has been several days that he hasn't gone) and to not vomit. Of course, I also hope he is feeling better and it shows, but the vet said he is very sick and that he won't heal in just a couple of days. Also, the jaundice (yellow skin) will take a while to go away, too.

But just having a meowing, purring Lautrec is good news to me...I just hope and pray that he is recovering and that this is not just a temporary, drug-induced improvement. I love my baby boy so much!! He truly is my LOLOve!

BTW, Tiny is doing fine though she is very worried about Lautrec and shows it by being rather nervous around him. She even has worked herself up to the point of vomiting spit (no food)...she is a nervous girl anyway, so this does not surprise me...perhaps she is just mirroring my worry in her own way. Bless her...she is so sweet and so touching! She lover Lolo, too...in her way!!

We were hoping for an update before going to bed so thank you for posting! We're glad Lolove got some fluid into him and seems perkier and maybe even hungrier.

Please keep us posted on his progress and we are sending big purrs.

Sparkle said...

I'm glad to hear Lolo has had some improvement, and I am continuing to purr as hard as I can for him! I'm not surprised that Tiny is worried - although Binga and I have our differences and I get upset when she is not feeling her best - and although I don't even like the dog, I was very concerned when she had her spleen out!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Continued purrs for Lolo. We hope he shows daily improvement, even a tiny bit. We know he has serious liver and pancreas problems, but is there a specific diagnosis? Something you can research for treatments?

ML, KC & Kitties said...

So glad for some good news.
You all need some rest tonight.
BTW, check on the CB and see the Purrs Badge that KC made for Lautrec.
Love & Purrs,
Mom ML & KC

ABBY said...

Audrey here - I finks mine big sis-ter Attie is VERREH depressed about her boyfriendcat. Today all she did was hide and hide and won't even come for skritches or treats. She lapped a little milk but will not play or eat or cuddle. She must be so saddies about her special Lautrec. :( I will lets her know he is feeling a little bit betters and maybe her spirits will perk up.

We will keep right on purring and praying for our pal Lolo to show improvement each and every day. We love you pal, and send lots of hugs and nose taps, too.

The Lee County Clowder said...

Still purrrrrrring & purrrrraying for Lolo. Keep eating, kittie, at least a little.

Sometimes bean baby food will help a sick kittie to eating. Beef or chicken baby food, with out onions, might be worth a try.

We are so glad to read Lolo is doing better. We will keep up our purrs...long and loud, till he is fully recovered!!

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

We are glad that Lolo responded to the IV drip. Still purring for him. Perhaps he could be tempted by plain meat baby food or favorite wet cat food made liquidy with warm water.

We are continuing to send our purrs to Lolo...and you know what? I'm gonna sing a very special sock song in his honor. I hope he can hear it.

Please know that we are thinking of you. Both of Tiny who suffers by watching and of Lautrec who is so brave and you who are so worried. Purrs from all of us. Au, Guido and Target

Punapippuri said...

Äiti went to bed before the update so actually checked online when we woke her for food a couple of hours ago. We were really pleased to hear Lautrec had improved a little but we are still revving up the purrs really loud for him, and offer comforting nose rubs to Tiny too. And to you too. All paws are crossed.

lupie said...

We are thinking of you ...
Purring hard for Lautrec to be well and healthy soon.

Love,

SpiderMeow, Lucky&Gang, Mom too

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

CCL Wendy said...

Even a little good news is encouraging. It sounds to me like Lolo was quite dehydrated. If he's not eating or drinking much that is bound to happen.

We are all still purring as loudly as we can so Lolo can feel our vibrations. We hope all the love coming his way will help him turn the corner for the better.

Ah, sweet Tiny has sympathy sickness. Poor little thing. All the purrs should help her out, too, we hope.

JC said...

I so hope he gets better !!!

Sweet Purrfections said...
