My cat was able to come home and today was the first day that she started eating on her own! The next ten days will be very critical for her. The home care is a bit daunting, but I know Grant and I will do it. The scariest thing is doing a portion of an I.V. bag of fluid daily with a needle. It takes about five minutes for it to go through. I feel like I am becoming a nurse, learning how to do an I.V. drip! I hope I remember how! There are also some pills and one liquid medication. All of these would either drop off completely or lessen as she gets better. Cats can live for years with this treatment.
Rosie looks better than she has in weeks. She has already walked around and eaten and drank on her own. Being back home seems to agree with her. She has at some point today groomed herself.
I want to say a special thank you to Dr. Terry Miele and the whole team at the Carnegie Cat Clinic. They really cared for Rosie like she was their own cat and they really fought for her.
As I write this, she is laying in bed right up against my elbow, same as always! I know she wishes I would just turn off the lights and take a nap! I will in a little while, and treasure the feeling of Rosie once again sleeping right next to me.
