My update from the vets today.....

My Xmas card.. please take if you would like one...





Everyone today I was at the vet again and here is my report.. Mum and dad told him that with the help of the tablets I am eating and.... I am managing to eat half and half with the renal food and the proper food.. I had my heart tested and I was weighed. I am holding my weight with no gain but no loss either, a good thing. My heart is holding steady with the tablets and my kidneys must be too , so the medication is keeping me stable.. Up to now the vet would only give me enough heart and kidney tablets for a few days because he didn't want to tempt fate with any more. Today the vet said he was so pleased with me and he was going to let me have a whole month before I go again. I can not tell you how happy that made mum and dad feel. I am to go in towards the end of January and stay half a day to have my blood pressure measured and my blood taken , both to see how my kidneys are holding up. They are trying to get some of appetite tablets from a human supplier and hopefully will get them soon as I only have a very few left.


Both mum and dad and the vets did not think I would be here to see Christmas.. I am and hopefully with the help of the brilliant vets and my medication I will get a little while longer yet.. Mum and dad both said this is the best Christmas present ever.. I have to agree... Thank you all my friends for being with me through all this, I so appreciate you all... With much love..... GJ xxx

Way to go, GJ. Keep eating and eating.

We got to wondering. If injected Valium makes you eat, would Valium pills do the same thing for you?
