Kramer still in hosp. Update
- Hi Everyone, Thanks to all for all of your advice and support. I had another very good 2 hr visit last night.
He and i walked for 10mins in halls, veryinquisitive/tail up/purring. Ate treats and wet good. Purred for two hours.
His numbers yesterday were bun 95, cr 5.3,phosp 6.8. PCV 15%. He is on 20ml iv drip.
He got his first eopgen shot yesterday. He is on iron supp. I am having her talk to heart dr. on friday about
epogen side effects for heart and requesting lowest dose possible. She is hedging with me about that.
He gets a new iv site today, but there was also talk about whether we should see how he does with
subq's...I am still so confused and head spinning. I ahve nothing doen at home or for Christmas
or for supplies for him. I requested a daily weight. Stopped cerenia today but still on 1/4 pepcid daily.
She thinks we can stop all the bp checks. They have been around the same she said 186/124, 185/125, 186/131.
I am just overwhelmed by all his medical problems, both old and new. She said
he's eating on own(they stopped offering just purina nf-finally!). Let's see...i think that is
latest, She will run kidney numbers today again. I think they want them as best as possible prior to coming home.
In August when he seemed ok they were BUN 61 (15-34), Crea 4.6 (0.8-2.3), Phos 5.7 (3.0-7.0).
Thanks to all again. Sorry if I haven't replied back to anyone...Keep praying - I believe in miracles!
Donna and Kramer
