Hi my lovely friends!
I know we talk and talk and talk about getting back into blogging but things just keep coming up.
We have news.
A couple weeks ago now I think Alex and I noticed Tygana running into walls we immediately got him an appt.
He has a partially detached retina most likely caused by high blood pressure.
He had been losing weight lately as well and they suspected hyperthyroidism.
We ran a blood panel on him and started him on blood pressure meds.
Tygana does not have hyperthyroidism but instead he has CRF (chronic renal failure) he is stage 3 if you are familiar with the stages.
So he is on a prescription diet (Hill's K/D) now which Pepper apparently loves, I just can't seem to keep him away from it!
We had a re-exam today and his blood pressure has gone down 100points, but it is still high we're hoping it goes down more.
Some of his sight has returned it's not perfect (well it hasnt been perfect in ages but better than no sight)
They also drew blood and going to run tests on his kidneys again and we are also going to have a urinalysis.
In other news Pepper is in fantastic health!
So if it wouldn't be too much to ask we are asking for your purrayers and thoughts that Tygana be as stable as possible for as long as possible. Because CRF cats can live happy lives too! We just don't want his numbers jumping!
Thanks everyone and we will try to keep you posted!
Also if any of you bloggers have CRF or have experience with a rainbow bridge kitty who had CRF we would love to hear from you!!
