Woozy Wednesday

Äiti here - Punapippuri is not really awake  enough to write about how miserable he feels about the monster injustice of his biopsy. Also he would not be pleased with this photo from last night!
We have to wait for a week or so for the results, but it is clear he has gastritis, with an area of irritation towards the top of his stomach. There were no furballs, which was a surprise. There are some inflamed lymphocytes around his stomach and intestines. It's clear his stomach has been painful and I hope this is the reason for his aggression, and that it can be helped with painkillers. He's been taking medrol (pred) and slippery elm bark, and we'll know if there is something better when the biopsy results are through. He's not well, and we are looking at managing a chronic condition. Currently he is alone with me in my bedroom, which is functioning as his personal recovery suite. He's pretty wiped out right now.

Thank you for all your good wishes and thoughts for him - he truly is a Grumpy Guts, and with good reason.

We hope the guts settle down with meds... Nokitty should have an unhappy tummy!

I'm sending more healing purrs to Puna. I hope the doctors have a good course of action to help him feel better!

It seems rather unsporting of her to take a picture of you when you're kinda down & out! On the plus side, I will be happy to lend you *MY* name for the next week or so. Hee hee.

I know you're feeling a bit punkish, but soon the tum will be soothed and it will be bite-your-brother time again. But honestly--you do have 8 (EIGHT) brothers--you don't *always* have to target Veikko.

Assuming he even still lives with you. I see his name has disappeared from the masthead of your blog. Did you banish him?

Hope the vet can come up with some stuff to help.

Poor boy! How embarrassing to have your photo taken during a drool. I hope the results get you on the best medication to get you feeling better again ASAP.
