We are breaking our silence today to send out a special news bulletin!
Fiona visited Dr. Neel yesterday to have her PCV (packed cell volume) and weight checked.
If you don’t recall, Fiona had an injection last week with medication (Darbepoetin Alfa) provided by Mom Ellen (15AndMeowing) to help her anemia. Her PCV last week was 17. Her current PCV is 22.5. Thus, the happy dance!
She also maintained her weight of 5.9 pounds. We hate that her weight is so low, but pleased it didn’t drop additionally this week.
She’ll return to see Dr. Neel again next Tuesday for another PCV check and possible injection. We’ll let you know how that goes.
Please keep Fiona in your prayers. And please, please add our best pal, Sammy (onespoiledcat), to your prayers and send him some POTP. He spent Tuesday night in the hospital getting IV fluids and some other treatments. Sammy has hyperthyroidism and kidney problems. We love him so much. We know many of you do as well so hope you’ll share.
Please feel free to use our graphic on your blog.
Tomorrow will be an extra special Thanksgiving post. We know everyone will be busy with family, but please drop in if you can find a few minutes.
Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
