We owe Dr. Tom again big time... we did not expect to have Jenny with us tonight, but Dr. Tom's confidence and assurance sent her home again.... her lungs are not affected, and it is the sinuses that are so full. She had a Vitamin B12 shot, and I have Nutrical to get calories into her (and scratches into me!) and Keith bought a humidifier, so she can have nightly sessions in the bathroom to loosen up the infection. By tonight, after being forcefed her nutrition supplement, and the shot and the penicillin by mouth, she was feeling so much better that we were mightily relieved.
Jenny about to jump on Keith for the first time in over a week
We are not out of the woods yet, but we watched as she trotted across the living room and up on to the recliner...
And then finally, into the office with Keith where she helped him look at the internet for a while.
You can see by her eyes that her sinuses are still very full, and we have instructions on how to get some of that to drain (which I won't regale you with here). Suffice it to say we are very relieved and happy to have our little Jenny on the mend, finally. We would have hated to lose such an affectionate little girl.
The reason we know she is mending??? Her purr is back!
