Panda's bloodwork is back and Colleen said for an FIV cat all his organ functions are amazingly good. Anyway, since his heart and kidneys are fine, it was safe to give him another steriod injection to reduce his mouth inflamation. It was probably pain that was making him a bit nutty at night as his urine is clear too. So Panda will hopefully be on an upswing for awhile now.
Peter has decided to further complicate matters by getting just a tiny bit better. he is brighter, and perkier and more interested in what I am up to today. Daisy for a dog with a mouthful of cancer looks pretty darn chirper today, I guess the antibiotics are removing the infection part of the disease process, and the pain meds are helping her to feel better too. Sooooo.....what to do??? hmmmmm.... Well, if they stay like they are today, it isn't time yet. I think I will take them into the vet on monday and get Colleen to look them over as a pre-euth check. If she thinks they are fine for awhile and I won't put them in danger of a middle of the night crises by pushing the envelope too far...well, i guess we will be able to just hang out and eat cookies for awhile more.
Sometimes I feel like we are balancing on a thread...someone once told me, I didn't need to micro manage down to the second the absolute right time to help them to pass, intellectually I can believe that, but my heart doesn't....my heart believes too soon is murder, too late is cruel. Maybe Peter and Daisy could cooperate a bit by just not crapping out and scaring me in the first place.
Oh and new on the list of let's freak out Carol critters today, is Saul...he is quite weak for the past 24 hours and is having more difficulty mobilizing and getting up, esp. today. It probably didn't help that he spent most of yesterday laying on the cement underneath the picnic table...that is his very favorite place to sleep. I have upped his mobicox for a bit.
