Day 261 - Keesha Day 4

Today's news is not good. While Keesha tolerated her feedings last night, most everything that was fed was vomited up this morning. Needless to say, she is not coming home today as hoped. She continues to decline in attitude and personality, and seems to have more discomfort in her abdomen. With the increased nausea and abdominal pain, a pancreatitis test is now being run. Despite the outcome of the test, the same support is needed which is fluids and food. The prognosis for pancreatitis is fair and would consist of a bland, low fat diet the remainder of her life and seems manageable, however if she continues to not eat or tolerate the tube feedings, harder decisions will need to be made soon.

Between stress at work and personal changes that have taken place over the past month, I am emotionally and spiritually drained. Dealing with my other cat who remains at home (Tird) is like having a sibling child who misses his sister and is acting out. Taking care of him is a full time job at times, and is a sad reminder of Keesha's absence.
