News From the Vet About Cecil
HAPPY NEW YEAR’S DAY! I hope that you had a fun, safe night last night and that you’re feeling excited about 2018.
Sorry about missing a few posts last week. I planned to post when we were in Vegas but I forgot my laptop so instead I just tried to update my Insta stories a bunch. If we’re not friends on Instagram (@KristinaRunning) then expect a big post with all my vegas updates this week!
We got a phone call from Cecil’s vet while we were in Vegas – he’s going to be okay!!!!!!!!! The blood work shows that Cecil definitely has hyperthyroidism but that he definitely does not have diabetes or kidney disease.
He’s going to get started on pills to help control his thyroid this week, and then I’ll have to schedule him for a procedure that will cure him. It includes radioactive therapy so he’ll have to stay at the hospital for 2 nights since he’ll be radioactive, but then he’ll be totally cured and won’t even have to take pills!
THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY.
I was so worried because the vet had told me there were three things that came to mind based on his symptoms and one of those was kidney disease. My first cat Leo was diagnosed with kidney disease when he was just 5 years old. He passed away at only 9 years old and those last 4 years were basically just us watching him slowly deteriorate. It was heart breaking and I was not feeling emotionally prepared to go through that again with Cecil.
I feel so relieved to know not only will Cecil be okay but also that he can be totally cured! <3
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
What’s one goal you’ve set for 2018?
