Good news.  Mabel had a great check up today.  Her mouth healed very well.  I’m waiting on lab results from internal medicine now.  When we got home she ate half a can of food!  Smiley  I was really pleased to see her eat that much after fasting.  If I only feed her every 8 hours that may solve the whole appetite problem.

Keeping an eye on my hand still.  I seem to have some tendon pain on top of the hand and through my wrist. It comes and goes though.  If I rest the hand completely it gets better but it’s very hard to rest it.  Don’t know if all the pain is from me irritating it or if a tendon sheath got nicked and bacteria traveled.  Still no redness or swelling but lots of “deep” discomfort.  Might have to go back to er if it don’t improve.  Sad

I'm glad she's feeling better and off the buprenex. Hope the recheck goes well!

Tomorrow is Mabel’s dental recheck and internal medicine consult at Penn Vet.  She’s been off buprenex for a couple days now and seems to be doing okay and back to being feisty.  Smiley. I also picked up mirataz from her local vet but haven’t tried it yet.  Not sure what they’ll do tomorrow and didn’t want to introduce a change the day before.  One thing I’m curious about is if I start using it will Mabel get dependent on it and won’t eat at all if / when it is discontinued?  I don’t think I would be comfortable with that.

The last two pictures! I wasn’t sure there was someone around the corner, but there was!  Grin The dual laser eyes are adorable.

Thank you for your thoughtful reply, catmom. It’s very helpful to hear the words from not in my own head, if that makes any sense. I really appreciate everyone’s input; it’s extremely helpful in laying out a plan tailored for Gypsy. Cooked egg whites was a bust due to allergies, which I kind of expected, so now we are trying raw egg whites. They  tell you not to use raw egg whites because there a protein called avidin in there that binds biotin, which is a B vitamin. To account for this I am adding biotin supplement at a pretty high dose.

I have also started her on B3 (as niacinamide) which was mentioned at the bottom of Tanya’s page on phosphate binders. No cat studies on this yet, so fingers crossed. She is on pumpkin, Xanthum gum, and Miralax already due to her historic constipation. I got the chitosan half of Ipakitine as a pure powder, which I may try independently of the calcium carbonate.

Despite being skinny now she is still quite alert and loudly opinionated.  Cheesy I can only hope to have her mental acuity when in my nineties.

Glad everything went well at the ER. And good girl Mabel for eating the chicken!

Best wishes for continued uneventful healing.

Thank you. Smiley.  They put it in the same arm unfortunately.  Guess I can take Tylenol if it becomes painful.  What a relief though.  I’ve been on edge since Thursday knowing how bad those bites can get, and worrying about Mabel’s care.  Now I can relax.  When I got home she was up in a dining room chair and all the chicken I left in the bowl was gone.  Kind of suggests that maybe she only has an appetite problem with RC gastrointestinal canned !  Smiley.  If only it were that simple.

I was hoping that it was the same arm, at least you’ll have one functioning arm. Tongue   But it might confuse the issue regarding where the pain is coming from, lol. 

It’s good news that Mabel ate while you were gone.  Go, Mabel. Smiley

Please keep us posted.

That’s such a relief!  You still need to keep an eye on it, okay?  Did they give the tetanus in the same arm?  The last time I had a tetanus shot, my arm was so sore for 10 days!  I couldn’t even use it.  I sure hope you don’t react the same way, but just know that it’s possible.  Ugh. 

Very happy you get to go home!
