|Tom in his cage at the vet's clinic. He was complaining loudly to Mama that he wants his comfy humongous bed to sleep on.... Mama's been visiting him before and after work.|
The verdict: Tom has renal failure.
The MRI scan shows his right kidney is larger than his left one.
Ultrasound probing found his right kidney is badly damaged, no live tissues detected.
His left kidney is also damaged, though still functioning.
However, no trace of stones in both kidneys.
He seems alert and not as listless as before, perhaps coz he's on a drip and getting some nutrition.
There is no cure.
Tom will need treatment as long as he's alive.
Mama's considering working from home so she can give full time palliative care for Tom.
He will only be allowed home once his blood count stabilised.
|Seb's been consoling and bathing Tom.....|
When the first born refuses to eat
When the first born has lost so much weight (lost 1.1kg so far)
When the first born spends time napping and napping
When the first born becomes scruffy as he doesn't do bathing properly
When the first born can't control his bladder
When the first born's heart beat doesn't sound normal
When the first born had to be left at the vet's ....
There are more tears in the house
When the first born's blood test's results show:
* high contents of urea
* increased count of white cells
So, there'll be more tests done on the first born
Many more days of staying in the ward
Many more days of uncertainty.....
It's not a happy occasion at home
Mama's been inconsolable....
We'll be offline for the time being
Purrrlease purrray for my brofur Tom....
He needs all the goodwill and good wishes from everyone
We'll keep you all posted from time to time
Take care, all.
