Well another week of drama, deviousness, and temper tantrums... but enough about David, let's talk about the cats. My boy Posky ended up on an intravenous drip back in cat hospital again; he went in on Tuesday and came out on Friday morning. He impressed everyone with his charm and laid-back qualities, and they all said what a lovely boy he was. Even his other vet Linda (who is based at a different vets where he goes for his acupuncture) phoned to wish him well and show moral support.
I now have to give him subcutaneous fluids every two days which involves 100ml of saline solution being dripped into his scruff. I did it for the first time yesterday morning and it did seem to help - he definitely ate more. Poor boy, he now has to have a fortekor tablet, a tiny tablet to stop stomach acid, some horrid paste which he despises which is to stop the absorption of phosphorus from his food, and a potassium supplement every day. The paste is supposed to be highly palatable to cats - HA! We all know what it means when anything has THAT in its description.
Elsewhere, Charlie's insulin dose has been lowered again - now he has 2 units twice a day. That's great considering he was on 4! We have to do some more glucose measurements this weekend just to check what it's doing. Charlie also decided that cobwebs were in vogue this season, so I'll leave you with some pics of him modelling a few. I think he's even got a dead spider in there...
