Hello everyone. Not much to report this evening. The specialist Vet called me around 6:00 this evening. Gracie was still about the same, alert and her breathing is pretty good. Her temperature is still holding at normal. The xrays still show pneumonia, so she has lots of healing to do yet. Gracie had blood work done and all functions are in the normal range. Her white blood cell count is slightly elevated which is typical of what they see with an infection. Gracie was nice enough to cough up some good phlegm for them so they are culturing it to identify anything unusual and give them a better insight as to what is going on inside her.
Gracie is alert when someone comes around to see her and she is still eating some. Tomorrow they are going to try her in a bigger cage without the oxygen for a while and see how she does.
Brian is still pretty snotty and so is Miss Precious. Brian, always the good pill taker, fought me tooth and claw when I tried to give him half a benedryl. Miss Precious, the don’t even think about pilling me girl, took her half of a benedryl just ine…go figure. Oh, they both like pill pockets until you stick a pill in one.
Thanks for keeping the purrs and prayers coming, we are overwhelmed by your kindness.
