Wow, Jenny, that's a WONDERFUL report and very encouraging to me and many others, I'm sure.
At your suggestion (and thanks for the e-mail and phone messages), I began Lukey's syringe feeding yesterday with A/D and Gatorade. He did very well with both. I'm on my way out to feed him again this morning and then taking him back to the vet to put him on intravenous fluids and vitamin C to help with whatever infection may be going on, if any. Still not sure about what is causing the fever because his blood work was normal last Thursday except for a borderline low lymphocyte count and mild anemia (don't recall the numbers right now). The fluids seem to help the fever a lot, though, so it may in fact be from dehydration. We may go ahead and start him on antibiotics as well to be on the safe side, and he will be evaluated today as to any need for a transfusion, though I don't believe his anemia is that severe yet. One question: He appears to have some diarrhea, first noticed on Saturday. Do you have any thoughts about what might be causing the diarrhea or has Autumn experienced this? It was before his first LTCI shot, also given on Saturday. Thanks again for the wonderful and promising news. I have been so depressed all weekend and this certainly gives me hope for my Lukey.
