new member - hello
I have been lurking for a few days on this site, my 2 yo kitty Deagan
was diagnosed with a Grade III heart murmur last week and his echo is
on Nov 20th, keeping my fingers crossed...
I replied to a couple of the posts, but I think I sent them directly
to the "poster", perhaps if they found the information helpful they
could post it (This is my first time in a group!) What a wonderful
group of people who have gathered here, such compassion and empathy.
I may be able to help with some of the medical questions. I
have been a paramedic in Toronto for 6 years and I worked as an
animal health technician for 10 yrs before that. In paramedicine, we
get extensive training in heart failure and CHF, so I might be able
to answer some questions.
My thoughts are with all the kittens out there, hopefully Deagan will
not have to become a regular, but it is nice to know such wonderful
people are here if the news is not good. I will post his results
when I get them...
jen, deagan and kira the dog
