Update....

Hi everyone, Firstly thank you so much for all the good wishes we really appreciate it. I have been back at the vet today and the news is that my temperature is down but I am still quite poorly. The vet is still going along with the infection theory at the moment. I didn't stay at the vet because at the moment the vet does not want to stress me any more than necessary but mum and dad have to try and syringe some liquid food into me or I will have to go on a drip. I got more antibiotics by injection and some to take orally. Mum and dad managed to get a couple small syringes of the liquid food into me and are going to keep trying every couple hours.
I think some of my fur friends mistook what I said yesterday because they thought I was constipated again. This is not the case, whatever it is knocked me completely off my feet but I am not blocked up. It came on really quickly and made me quite ill. Mum really thought I had suffered a stroke and the vet was thinking along those lines too until she took my temperature which was very high and would fit with the other symptoms for infection. I have not eaten for five days but the vet says the high temperature and infection would do that. I need to get lots of the liquid food into me and then build from there. Then when I am feeling better I am to get a heart Scan because they want to see whats happening with my heart, that will hopefully be next week sometime.
The irony is that I was better than I had been for a long Long time and was eating double what I normally ate, then this happens and undoes all the good that that did.
Keep those purrs and woofs coming please. Keep the paws crossed that it is infection and that it clears soon.
Thank you everyone... Hugs GJ xxx Thank you for all the good wishes for dads birthday xxx

We are purring hard. I think the confusion may have come from the CB--Ginger in Portland is constipated again and getting purrs for that it is written right near your update on the CB. So many cats to purr for! We are glad you are a little bit better but will keep our motors running that you get LOTS better and it is just an infection.

We are glad your temperature is down and we hope that you will very soon feel like eating again. We are sending you purrs by the cartload to fight the infection. Try and eat a bit for your mum and dad as they are worried sick about you and if you can't, then let them syringe the liquid food into you. We and our mum and dad are thinking of you constantly.

Aw, GJ...We're purring and purraying hard for you, hoping all will be well. Your beans must be so very stressed right now. Sending universal Light to you all.

Bellen said...

I'm sorry to read that you are feeling poorly again, Ginger Jasper. You were doing so well, too. I'll keep you in mind and watch for your updates. Best of luck!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Chey is correct. The oonfusion came from two "Gingers" on the sick list. GJ was put on the purrs list last night and when a comment was left this morning that Ginger was at the vet's for constipation, KC assumed it was Ginger Jasper. Easy confusion of names.

We send lots of purrs and woofs for you, GJ! And a big hug for your mom!

Old Kitty said...

Awww sweet GJ!! Please please get better! Me and Charlie are trebling our purrs and healing hugs for you so you could beat this infection and get all better!
Yay for your mum and dad too! Take care

Keeping our purrs going for you!
My sisfur, Gracie (that is her picture in our post) had a fever and the vet never found out why. She called it a FUO (Fever of Unknown Origin) and it went away.

Prayers that yours will do the same!
