Re: Tuppence


latest update, not good realy but Tuppence is still with us.
Returned from holidays last sunday, tuppence ok but lump has grown. we watched her carefuly all week, it's not easy for her to go to the toilet but she is managing, the lump is breaking down and a bit smelly, Every morning she is by her food dish crying for food, she's eating less so i'm offering small amounts. On the examination table she was so alert and interested in her surroundings that the vet feels she is not yet unhappy with life. He did say he could operate but feels she is likely to die under anaesthetic. He said he would pts if we wanted or we can leave things as they are. Howard asked what he would do and he suggested leaving things as they are for now. She is on ab's and we will just have to take each day as it comes.
Yesterday Howard took her to the vets and we both believed that it was the end. Despite the lump

Re: Tuppence


Oh Shelley its hard isn't it when its not cut and dried....I suppose the benchmark is well to me it is are the good hours outweighing the not so good hours by a good margin or is the gap narrowing.

I am thinking of all of you.

Re: Tuppence


thank you for you're kindness, it does help.
Tuppy is ok today, taking her ab's in a dollop of hairball mix which she loves, it also helps her to go.
This morning as usual she was waiting by the food dish and ate a small amount. She has just eaten some more, including some of Malaika's sardines,lol.
The nasty smell seems to have gone.

That's good then that the smell has gone
the antibiotics are working then. And sardines are always a nice top up for feline illness. Go Go Tuppence......

Re: Tuppence


thanks Yola and Karen.
Have rung the vets to see if Tuppence can have more ab's, i know its not usualy a good idea but they do seem to have helped her general demeaner and stopped the smell. She's eating a bit better and generaly seems a bit more lively. The nurse has said she sees no problem with us haveing some ab's in and useing when we need to.
