OT – Nushi update. Let’s see. In the last 2 days Nushi has done the following for the 1st time since her illness: jumped from the floor to the back of the couch (best vertical leap), done the “it’s all claws!” manuever (flip over on back and extend all feet upward) when Kira batted at her, until this she has been mostly running behind my feet and batting back from there, and used the litter box to poop in – Yay Nushi!!!! Her meow is back to full force as is her purr. And she’s starting to really show her expressions again. She still has a powerful appetite and she’s just wonderful to watch!!!
Her diarrhea lasted for 5 days with a day in the middle of almost better. Here’s hoping I’m no jinxing it by using past tense. Miserable for both of us, but my fb group of fellow FIP fighters say it’s happened to several of them during treatment, so I’m not too alarmed. My cold/flu/whatever is still with me but hopefully in its final stage of actual illness. I may have a lingering cough for a week or so, but that’s ok.
I had to place a new order for her meds just in case it was the new batch that was causing her intestinal issues, but since they’ve stopped we’ll have to see how she does. Her improvements are harder to quantify these days, which is why I pay attention to the hard stuff. When she can walk on the bed with a steady gait again THAT will be a huge sign. I was a little concerned about her belly looking, well like a belly because some cats develop the wet or effusive form of FIP during treatment, but I’m still hoping its just a belly, after all, she is eating a lot and her body can only grow so fast!
Thanks to all who continue to support Nushi and me, and everyone else in the Mega-Orb who needs support! You’re the best and I’m lucky and proud to be a part of it!
