Ok folks, a human update, and it's going to be quick as I'm emotionally wrung out.
Earlier today, I took Tia home from the vets, but this wasn't the glorious news I'd been hoping for. The reason I took her was because I couldn't afford to keep her there any longer, despite them telling me that it would be more benificial to her. In one night alone, Tia ran up a bill of £796, and I don't know how I'm going to pay that one, let alone any further ones incurred. The vets were worried as to how well she'd do at home, as we don't know the reason still why her tummy got like this in the first place. All of the tests came up inconclusive.
So I'm doing what I can for her. I have her on an exclusively wet food diet, and with a bit of coaxing, she's begun to eat again. I am syringe feeding her every hour, but I don't know how long I can keep this up with work and everything else. I have electrolites, antibiotics and apetite stimulants for her, so I just gotta hope that they work.
I'm worried that they won't though, and in any case, the vet needs to see her again in two days to check her progress. If she still has runny poo, the next stage will be to biopsy her. If that needs doing, I simply can't afford to pay it. I wrote to ML to see if she knew of any charities that could help out, and she referred me straight back to the super CB. I have created what I think is a working Paypal button which I'm going to post hereon the off-chance that someone can help. I don't do begging posts well. It's not what I do. Please feel no pressure at all to donate. Your support is more than I could ask for. It's there just in case, is all. I'm not too proud to ask when the life of my Tia is at stake.
That's all from me tonight. I'll write more tomorrow if I have the energy to after tonight's wrangling with a cat who really doesn't like water being dribbled down her throat. Thanks so much for stopping by to comment. Carly
