cat had a vet appointment yesterday for a followup. he has hypocardio myopathy, a condition causing the walls of the heart to thicken so the heart has to work harder to pump blood. in december he had a blood clot and got rushed to the vet at 1:30am, was kept overnight and tested etc and has been on fortekor and metacam ever since. right away we noticed improvement, more energy, better mood, more playful etc. but the vet said yesterday that the meds can cause kidney damage over time so he took blood to check it out, we should get the results tomorrow. he did say that the murmer has gone down a grade, it's a 2 now, was 3. so he said everything sounds good and he looks great but it's better to catch any problems before the symptoms start obviously.
i'm not crazy worried cause he seems fine to me, no increased thirst or urinating, no vomiting, which the vet said are signs of kidney problems, everything seems pretty normal to me. but there's always that nagging voice that says 'what if' and 'what'll i do if..'
I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way
