Yesterday hospital called me saying Nori could come home. I went there
after work and, while i waited for prescriptions, she started a seizure.

Vet medicated her so that seizure didn´t complete (diazepam and mannitol).

I stayed with her sometime, talked to her but i felt it was a farewell.

When i arrive at home, vet called me to say Nori had a cardiopulmonary
arrest. They reanimated her but it could happen again.

Less then 30 minutes later, they called me again to say Nori had passed
away.

As always happens here, when a cat has seizures, brazilian veterinarians
says it is fip.

I don´t know what she really had, i am very sorrow for didn´t bring her
home on sunday, when she was better. At least, she would have had one more
day at home, with sun bath and love.

I want to thank all of you. You were the best support i could find for Nori.

Thank you very much.
