Thank you my sweet friends for all of your purrs and prayers, Mom thinks that are helping me a little.
It is hard to tell if I am doing better without getting blood taken and see if my numbers are lowering. Mom really thinks part of me not feeling well is my teeth.
It all started with Mom taking me in for blood work so I could get my teeth cleaned etc., well that all changed when Mom got the news I have CRF, we had to wait to make sure I am stable with my kidney numbers. The Vet told Mom start my fluids only once a week, Mom questioned her about only once....Then a couple days later they called and wanted Mom to bring me back to have my blood pressure taken, it was high when they check, geez what do they expect I am stressed and scared...so again a week later back in for another check, my blood pressure was fine, the third time fine.
Mom feels she should have started me 3 times a week like our vet started Xena on when she was first diagnosed, she should have followed her gut instinct, she trusted her vet in San Diego, not this vet....she thinks things might of been different so from now on gut instinct.....
All this time Mom and Dad are still not trusting our vet, lost the trust after what happened with Mia...anyway Mom starting looking on line again to see if there was another vet she could take us to, she found one 40 mins. away they have a regular vet and a holistic vet they work together....hooray Mom is happy and decides to take me and Mia there first.
They are nice, the vet doesn't like to do anything that is unnecessary like expensive test the vet and ER wanted to do on Mia. Nothing is showing up, hasn't for a year, Mia has regurgitation, she is eating and going potty so no need for all of those tests. She told Mom and Dad how to do her food and all is well mostly.
then I went and she didn't understand why they were so concerned about my blood pressure, so I am fine no high blood pressure for now. But Mom is very concerned that I need my teeth worked on and my kidneys. Because they did my blood work again and in about a month my kidney numbers rose very high, I am for the most part in kidney failure. Vet told mom to start my fluids every day, give me my homeopathic kidney medication. Mom noticed I am have a lot of acid in my tummy, making me sick and throwing up white foam. So now I get pepcid 2 times a day and I am feeling somewhat better. I am getting slippery elm to help my tummy and intestines too and Forti flora.
Still not eating like I should, Mom is having to hand feed me and she keeps trying to find something I will eat, not much.
I am up and walking around, Mom says it is kind of walking around aimlessly, sleeping in different places, haven't been spending anytime in moms closet like I used to do, I do run in to the litter box and I do miss so Mom has wee wee pads all over by the box.
I am sleeping more than normal, Mom is always checking on me, petting me and I see her cry, I know she is worried about me, we both hope I can pull through this and feel better soon. Every day I am here and feeling so so, Mom feels it is a good sign, I go back to my new vet next Wednesday in the morning, we will know more then. Vet told Mom I am unable to get my toofies taken care of, if not Mom wants to see if there is anything she can give me to help my toofies feel better....bad part is if I don't get better I may never be able to get my toofies cleaned again. Mom won't risk it and neither will my Vet...thank goodness
So that is about all for now, I am hanging in there, we know all your prayers and purrs are helping, and believe me we are not ready to give up....after all I am my Mom's sweet mellow boy...a mama's boy,
Mom goes to her doctor appt. tomorrow so we won't be around, lets hope they help Mom too...

It has been almost a week since we took Zeke to the vet and we found out his kidney numbers are high. We have been giving him fluids everyday, I am not sure it is helping him. He isn't eating much, he hides in Milo's crate, or under things. He just isn't feeling well at all.
I pray he will pull through this and will feel better, be himself. Just not sure if he has it in him, I feel like I may loose him.
I know not many of our friends are around it really is a shame they gave up on catster. But if any of you see this and go to FB please let our friends know my Zeke needs all of your prayers and POTP. We have another week before we take him back for recheck.

Sorry I haven't given you all an update on me, I am still not feeling good, still loosing weight and just not eating much. Mom is beside herself as you can imagine.
Mom & Dad took me back to see my new vet 40 mins. away yesterday. Mom really thought it is my teeth, it still could be, but vet was leaning more to my kidneys. They checked me all over, weighed me, 8lbs. 10ozs., in March I was over 10lbs..
They took blood and the vet called Mom this morning,my kidney numbers have gone way up from a month ago.
My bun # was 50 it is now 123
My Creatinine was 3.4 it is now 9.7
My first vet started me on fluids once a week, mom questioned that, our vet in San Diego started Xena on fluids 3 times a week. My new vet said 2 times a week, mom still questioned that. She feels she should have followed her gut and did the fluids 3 times. So now I have to have fluids everyday for 2 weeks, go back to new vet to recheck my kidney numbers.
We are praying the numbers come down and I will feel better.
Just pray for me to help get my kidney numbers down.
Not feeling so good Zeke, sure hope I feel better soon.
