RIP Houdini 6-1-08
She took a drastic turn for the worse overnight - her temp is 92.3 degrees and she's down to 2 lb 14 oz. She has severe dehydration and severe low blood sugar. The vet said between the hypoglycemia and the hypothermia she should be in a coma, but she is still trying to walk and eat. Please keep her in your thoughts today.
I'm so, so sorry to hear that. I've thought about Houdini a lot recently. She's one loved cat.
Big fat furry kitty hugs for Houdini and MD!!!! You're both in my thoughts!!!
Oh poor Houdini... my hugs to both of you.
(((hugs))) I am so sorry and will definitely be praying for Houdini.
How do the steroids elevate her temperature?
((((MD and Houdini))))
DR and i will be sending positive cat healing energy your way.
I'm so sorry MDV. I will light a candle for Houdini.
Oh I am so sorry. :'(
When Shango died his temperature had dropped to about 90 degrees, he was almost dead when they euthanized him. Oh, it was so sad, I am so sorry you have to go through this, I brings back the terrible pain my heart still has for my poor lost Shango. I still miss him so so so so much. My thoughts are with you. I would pray, but I stopped praying, and stopped having faith in God after Shango died.
It's been a couple of hours. Is it too early to know if the steroid injection are working?
I hope everything is going ok! You and Houdini are in my thoughts. Let us know when you know.
I'm pulling for Houdini. It's great news that you have a direction to go with her treatment.
Keeping you and Houdini in my thoughts. I hope the night goes well and she continues to show improvement. (((hugs)))
The kitties and I are pulling for you, your DH, and Houdini! :-*
i'm glad to hear they found out what was going on with her getting sick. hopefully the treatment will help her feel better soon!
i've noticed that many of us have very "tough kitties" here. i have a feel part of the community pet love really helps them feel better... that they can "get" our energy and good thoughts. :)>>>
Sending more good thoughts :)>>>
good thoughts, good thoughts!!
