I'm having a bit of a rough patch currently in my life. On Monday I took our cat Coco (Colette) to the vet after she had been having some tummy issues and urinating outside of the litter box. After being examined by the doctor, I agreed to have them take blood work just to check for any underlying issues since physically she appeared to be normal, albeit overweight. I received a call yesterday morning and another doctor explained the results of her blood work. Turns out she has developed hyperthyroidism and we will be discussing the next steps for treatment hopefully today with the doctor who saw her Monday.
If you know me, you know I love animals, and I especially love my own animals as an extension of me. We don't have children, and honestly my husband and I treat out cats as if they were our children. My heart feels so heavy and I've spent a good portion of the past couple of days crying, my poor little Coco-bear. She's been such a good girl and has been acting like herself, and she did such a good job at the vet on Monday. My husband and I are determined to figure out how to make the suggested treatment work (see here for more info) in terms of finances and logistics, but my main worry is that it will take a lot out of her emotionally, knowing she will be quarantined and isolated and without her family for about 2 weeks. I also worry about Phina (Seraphina), and how she will react to not having her sister at home.
Anyway, I haven't had much motivation to post on here and this kind of put a pin in my inspiration balloon at the moment. I will do my best to get back on track soon, but in the meantime please keep my beautiful Coco in mind and send her lots of love and healing energy.
