The topic: Charlie came home yesterday afternoon


He was “partially blocked”.  Vet said he had a lot of struvite crystals.  Probably because he’s such a stressed cat (he’s aggressive to the others on a regular basis). 

He was catheterized, his bladder flushed, the vet admined lydocaine so it didn’t hurt so much to pee.  He said there’s no infection, but just to be safe keep Charlie on the amoxi. 

Now, the bad news.  Charlie gets buprenex three times a day.  And the worst news.  He’s supposed to get fluids today, tomorrow and Monday morning to help keep him flushed. 

Charlie is impossible to hold unless he wants it.  I have no idea how I’m going to do this.  Brian can’t help, he’s way too squeamish.

Oh, well, pray for me.
