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!!
