♥Thoughts and Prayers Do Work♥
First off I wanted to thank all of you that sent messages with your thoughts and encouragements during Sophie’s illness. I know that it is a bit sappy but your concern helped during a rough time.
For those of you who may have missed our December 31st post, our little girl cat, Sophie became really sick and was diagnosed with Cholangiohepatitis. This is the most common form of liver disease in cats. For awhile it looked like we may have to humanly euthanize her. Fortunately that was not the case.
Sophie has been doing really well. Last Saturday we took her into our vet for yet another blood test to check on her liver numbers. Good News – all of her numbers were back down to normal!!!!!!! She has also gained back about two of the four pounds she lost in December!!!!!!! The doctor took her off of all her meds except for the Prednisolone and that one is being tapered off 🙂 . We are so excited and so relieved. She still is on the watch list and will have to have blood work again in three months and then again in six months, but knock on wood everything is looking really good.
All of the veterinarians that help care for Sophie during her illness were fabulous and they were so great with us. Even when one of us were in tears on the phone – not naming any names 🙂 . I am so thankful that people like Dr. Schnieder, Dr. Abrams and everyone at Banfield Pet Hospital are there for my tribe. They make being a pet parent a little bit easier.
