Hello! So, today is day three. On Thursday we went to the vet cause T-lone had suddenly lost a lot of weight and was uncharacteristically sluggish. He's usually very mellow and we recently fostered a kitten for a few months (validating unusual behavior) and I'm a two-job single catlady so all said, I didn't see the signs until the last minute. Really, like the very last minute. I'd have come home in the next few days to find he had passed away quietly under a bed if I hadn't brought him in when I did. Ketoacidosis is pretty terrifying. So, the worst is finally behind us! Many tears have been shed, particularly today when the vet said he could go home tomorrow and oh, guess what?! The bill's not nearly as much as we thought and we'll even let you pay off a small part of it over the next six months! Yep, even more tears. T-lone is only 8 years old. The first vet said, 'look, this is really bad (cause I did not at all comprehend anything at that point). You can take him to the ER for about $4000 or we can discuss more humane options...' Um, yeah no. Not my boy. Not my T-lone. No way, no how, let's go figure out how to make this work... So, three days of absolute terror and stress and tears and anxiety and boy did my whole body ache last night! But today, hallelujah, the news was good! He's coming home tomorrow! Now what??! I'm shopping for a monitor and any advice is appreciated! And all the other advice as well. I'm so ready to have him home and get him healthy again!
