Temporary Stay

Gus is back on his thyroid meds.  I had run out, which was the time to start the process to flush the medicine and arrange the radiation treatment.  But after several attempts to get in contact with the lab, I gave up for now.  I’m tired of watching him get worse.

Apparently, they don’t have anyone besides a service to answer calls and they don’t return calls either.  Nobody is around during the day.  Why I should trust them with my cat for five minutes, much less five days is escaping me at the moment.

I’m sure both of us will feel better about this given some time.

I think he’s feeling somewhat better already.  He was out sunning on the rocks along with Julius this evening having a nice time.

Calla was out there too although they were not as chummy, of course.  She was on her bricks and he was on his rocks.  But they were keeping each other company for all of that.

    Poor Gus! I sympathise with your concern. If the lab doesn’t answer calls during the day, when do they answer calls? Hope you can get this sorted out soon. He looks pretty chilled about it all!

  4. Hugs to Gus! I’m glad he’s feeling better though. Hope he continues to feel better and better.

    Of all the places to stand, Calla keeps her toes on those little stones? Silly girl!


  5. So sorry Gus isn’t feeling right! That’s so frustrating. We hope he’s feeling better soon! Ellie

      The pills make him stable so that his overactive thyroid doesn’t make his body overwork itself. The point of the radiation treatment is to kill that part for good.


  6. I hope he gets better soon.

    Hope this very good looking kitty is feeling better. My tux Jack is one thyroid medication which we have compounded into a cream that can be rubbed on his ear.
    He is doing well, but at 22 years old even just doing OK is quite the achievement.

    I had wondered what was the status of the nuclear Med treatment. I wouldn’t trust them either. They would have to give me a lead apron and let me stay with the cat.

    I would not be feeling very happy about that lab either. Hope Gus continues ot improve and he looks mighty content to me.
