This has been a bit of a rough week (correction: an INCREDIBLY rough week!) for our feline family and, consequently, for us humans, too…but the news is finally good: Pinga came home with us on Sunday. Considering how ill she has been, she is doing quite well…but she is still not completely healed, and we are still keeping a close eye on her. The worst seems to be over, but my fingers are still crossed…!
In the photo, you will notice she sports a green bandage, which covered her “capped” IV line. The vets decided not to take the line out of her paw for 48 hours, in case she got worse at home and had to return to the clinic…luckily, that didn’t happen, so the vets removed the bothersome device late this afternoon, much to Pinga’s relief (and ours, too, believe me!!!). Obviously, I took this photo before the line was removed…here she was lying on my Dad’s belly. You can also see part of her pink tummy, which was shaved for the ultrasound she had on Friday…my poor sweetie!
I will provide a more detailed account in the next few days…plus I have some interesting studies to post about…but right now I have time only for a quick note. That reminds me: I apologize for not having answered your e-mails/contacts…will try to do so in the next couple of days…If I don’t, though, please send me a reminder…thanks! Ciao!
Yah for the improvement! Awww for the little green bandage and the look on her face.
Glad Pinga doesn’t have the bandage on her leg anymore, but she does look pretty cute with it on–like she just donated blood.
