Vetrinary adventures

So. We're actually updating from Mom's house today, for a very important reason. Oreo hadn't been eating for a day or two, and we thought it was nausea like the one time he hadn't been eating, so we were keeping an eye on him, and offering him milk when he would look hungrily at his food but still not eat it. Then last night, during Castle, I heard the familiar sound of hacking.

And those were our adventures for the day. We think it's the stress that has my cold (which was so close to being healed) relapsing, but it's just a cold; I can deal with it.

Today I'm thankful for discovering this on the day before the vet's office opened for the week as opposed to the day before it closed for the weekend, very friendly and caring veterinarians and nurses, fancy accents, e-mails from our friend in Japan saying we should be getting a certain DVD soon, and Mom being kind enough to take so much time out of her day to drive all over town for vetrinary treatment type thingies.

Oreo Report

I sort of meant to post this earlier, but we got distracted by TV, which we kind of needed tonight. Anyway, Oreo's back. They had to send the ultrasound to a radiologist and we won't get the results for a couple of days. In the meantime, they've given us some medicine to fight the potential problems, including an appetite stimulant, which we didn't think we'd need since Oreo is usually so quick to eat anything he can get his paws on, but obviously the veterinarians know better than we do. This is very important to remember.

baranoneko, who just graduated from vet school, is helping us by answering all the questions we didn't think to ask before, and we've managed to get him to eat a little, which is good. He seems to be doing just about as well as usual, except for the not eating as much and the having to hide from Mimsy because she tends to hiss at him when he's recently returned from the vet. After we get the results of the ultrasound, we'll be taking him back in for a follow up.
