Saturday update on Lolove

Today was another day of 4.5 hours of IV drip. During the night last night, Lolo got up twice and had long drinks of water (yes, all on his own!) and pee'd twice!! He did vomit up water once, but afterwards he returned and drank some more and kept it down that time. After his IV today, he pee'd again very yellow pee. This is important as it means he is clearing out the poisons that have come from his damaged liver...it is necessary - if I understand it all correctly - to help flush out the bad by doing the daily IVs...it will help his skin color come back too, eventually. It is very slow and we are looking at many more days of IVs. I don't mind...if it means that it will help Lolo, I will do it. He is my boy. If I could, I would fly to the moon for him.

On another note, Ginger has gone into heat so now we must keep her and Ellwood separate. To do this we have asked the breeder we bought Ellwood (and Ginger) from to keep him for a couple of weeks until Ginger has passed the critical stage of her heat cycle...then, on 1 February, she will  be 'fixed'. Yes, she is only 7 months old and we were also shocked that she is already in heat...the timing for it is really bad especially with Lolo being so sick AND Ellwood's 'chemical castration' (a slow release capsule under his skin that acts chemically to reduce his 'drive') coming its end NOW resulting in his hormones 'waking up' just when we need them to be sleeping. Nature sure has a way of playing what it thinks are practical jokes on us. Personally, I am not laughing at this time..maybe in the future when all is seemingly in place I will see the humor in it.

For the moment, we are just taking each day as it comes and I continue to love my boy Lolo like crazy, to thank him for everything he has brought to my life, and to accept that perhaps he won't make it another day, though I am filled with joy each morning that he looks at me from under the covers and meows and purrs. I guess what I want to say is that when you love someone...TELL THEM. Never let a day go by without saying 'I love you'...it doesn't cost a thing, but it is priceless. Besides, if you say it, you can't regret NOT having said it. Right?

Thank you all so much for your continued purrayers....they are soooooo appreciated. Lolove sends you his love.
