Update 9:30PM - Sorry for waiting to late to post today. I just got home from teaching 5 hours of Tap and Jazz Dance Classes. I was not able to go see Tia this afternoon, but my husband did. He spend an hour or so with her and she spent most of the time wanting a belly rub :) Here is what he told me: The Vet tried her on wet food earlier today. She turned her nose up at it (I guess due to the lack of carrots, lol). He then tried her on dry food, and didn't think she would eat that at first at either. But she did! He stopped back by to look at her half an hour after he first put the food down and she had almost cleaned her bowl. She also drank some water and is off IV fluids. He actually considered discharging her this evening, but decided that he needed to see if she kept the food down. (Hubby went around 4 this afternoon to see her.) If all goes well tonight, she should be discharged sometime tomorrow with a special diet to follow! She will have to go back in a week to have bloodwork done to check her levels.
So, this sounds promising. I am not going to get all excited because if she can't come home tomorrow I don't want to get my hopes up... but I AM THINKING POSITIVE :)
11:22 AM - Well, I don't really have much to update this morning with regards to Tia. I visited with her for about 30 min this morning with the hubby. Doc was not in yet. Was told he would give me a ring when he got in after he examined her.
She did make a poo over night. I guess it was in her system since Sat morning and finally worked its way out. At least it was solid and not runny :) I will know more when the Doc calls, but just wanted to tell you all she is looking good. He did give her fluids last night via shot instead of an IV. The Tech said this morning that he wasn't going to make her mad by running the IV line, LOL! My baby is keeping everyone on their toes. Oh, the Tech told me that everytime she walked into the animal area yesterday, Tia popped right up and looked at her, meowed as if to say, you are not my mama, now where is she!
It sounds positive to me that she is getting up everytime someone walks into a room rather than laying there. As always, thank you all for your vibes :) They really are helping. I will update when I know more :)
P.S. I posted some photos and videos of her last night. Scroll down if you have not seen those. Oh, several people have asked if Sitka misses Tia. Oh she does. She runs around the house looking for her. I just have to lay on the floor when I get home from visiting Tia to let Sitka smell her scent!
