Confused and confusing

In other news... they finally put my bed together. Am I doing it right?

Hi again,

It's been a confusing week.

Sorry I haven't posted for a while. Baby Alex has started crawling FAST, which means that Kate spends all her time running after him, and I spend all my time running AWAY from him!

And we've kind of been waiting until we had some concrete news on my health. But we don't, yet. So I went back to the v-e-t last Monday (15 November) for more tests. They had to keep me in overnight because they got blood in my #1 sample (they had to try and get it with a needle, and I moved at just the wrong time).

Anyway, they finally got a clean sample (makes me sound like Lance Armstrong!), and all my indicators that they were worried about were in the 'normal' zone, and I had no urine crystals.

So they sent me home to see how I went, and it's been over a week and I'm kind of ok, but still NQR (not quite right). I'll still only eat dry food (at least it's the urinary diet stuff), and I'm not eating as much as normal, but I'm in pretty good spirits.

I still have to give Kate another #1 sample to take in to the V-E-T, but I'm kind of holding out on that.

Thanks so much to all of you for your thoughts, prayers and purrs. I know I haven't posted much, but we've been reading the comments and feeling really loved. As you Americats prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, I can join in and say how thankful I am to have such AWESOME friends.

Cheers,
--Pabs

Good to hear from you Pabs and glad you are feeling a bit better. We hope you very soon go from feeling NQR to feeling 100%R. Glad there are no crystals and your numbers were in the normal zone. Now if you could just see fit to give Kate that sample.......

Kea said...

Pabs, it's great your UA came back normal. We're continuing to send purrs and Light that you feel better and better every day.

*Kitty kisses*

Poor Pablo, we are all very sorry to read you have been poorly. We hope that you get right back to feeling great very soon. No crystals and normal values is definately a step in the right direction.

Big rumbly purrs to you Pablo

Oh Pablo, I'm glad your potty is better, but I wish you were 100% better! If you would just try to eat some wet food I think you would like it.

Katnip Lounge said...

Pablo, we are purring a mighty thankful purr that you are feeling better...and another one right behind it to get you to 100%.
And the hammock? Well, it's a start!

Poor Pablo. Just what a kittie who's already feeling poorly needs -- a bean kitten to dodge.

Glad your numbers are getting where they need to be.

We're happy to hear that your results were in the normal zone. That's good work, buddy! We LOL'd at your Lance Armstrong comment, too :)

It's cool you have your bed put together. You look to be using it just right to us :)

Mr. Hendrix said...

Hi Pablo! Thanks for updating us. I'm not sure you're doing the bed thing right, but hey, whatever works for you. Personally I'd find a much higher place to nap. Trust me, those little blurpy things only get faster! *shudder* Wait until he walks....

I am so glad that you're counts are good but sad you're still NQR. We'll keep sending big healing purrrrrrrrs to you!

PS Mommy here! I can't believe Baby Alex is crawling! Isn't it amazing how they change so fast? Any pictures of him on the move? I've got a couple of good ones of Joel sneaking up on Hendrix....I enjoyed those more than Hendrix did...

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi Pablo! We are sorry we are so behind! WE are glad to hear you are feeling better but wish you were 100% - we are sending lots of purrs and prayers for that to come. And as for the bed, well we think that since you are a cat you can choose to use it however you want - we think you look super cute no matter what!

Oh...pee problems can be very furrstrating! Brighton seems good right now but his vet says he still ain't peeing often enough, so we added canned c/d to his diet to hopefully help...
