Dusty Update

Hi Everyone

No card from me today I'm afraid I have done a bit of crafting but all DT stuff, so you'll just have to wait for them.

Thanks to everyone for your messages about Dusty. We got him seen by a vet first thing this morning. They took some bloods from him and gave him a couple of antibiotic jabs, then they let me take him home as it would be more comfortable for him. The first lot of results came through this afternoon and were inconclusive in some areas and normal in others, they were'nt very specific with what that actually meant or indicated...lol. They are also testing for a thyroid problem but this result will take a week to come back. If the thyroid test comes back ok then they will do scans to check for tumours. I personally can't understand why they aren't doing the scans before hand, as at least that would be a quicker result and hopefully rule out any tumours, but I guess they know what they are doing. To try and keep his stress levels down, we have been given some high protein food and antibiotics to try and feed him at home, but if no joy with feeding after tomorrow, he will have to be hospitalised and put on IV's until all the results are in. If he deteriates any further in this time, we have to get him in to them straight away day or night. One good sign is he did have a few sips of milk this afternoon. I know cats shouldn't have normal milk and as a rule we never give him normal milk, but I think anything we can get down him at the moment will be good for him. So thats about it really, just got to try and push the fluids and food and keep a close eye on him. I'll keep you updated as and when.
Phone/broadband problem still ongoing, we've had one engineer who's now passed it on to the broadband lot, we'll hear from them this evening or tomorrow morning.
I'll have a card for you tomorrow as it's Wednesday which means it's Funky Fairys challenge day!! Enjoy the rest of your day!!!

I am thinking about you and yours and hoping hard that Dusty gets better, I know only too well what having a poorly cat means. Keep him calm but give him lots and lots of love.
