Re: [Felvtalk] Nitnoy and felv

2012-10-18 Thread dlgegg

Yesterday, my Annie (FELV+ and 8 years old) started with a weepy left eye.  At 
first the discharge was clear, but last night it became cloudy.  Called the vet 
this am and taking her in tomorrow at 9am for CBC to check blood counts.  
Already started her last night on Orbax left from Nitnoy to try and keep it 
from getting ahead of me.  Also started her on the tonic I was starting Nitnoy 
on and I am taking it myself.  And also on Lysine.Hopefully I can keep her 
healthy.

My Nitnoy crossed over today at 12:45.    She had been with me since 2008, 
survived a raccoon biting of her tail and being FELV +.  There was nothing to 
idicate whaat was going on.  During the holidays, she was not doing well so 
took her to ER.  They did x-rays and complete bloodwork.  I had told them she 
was FELV+ but they did not seem upset that she was just 1 point low on red and 
white cells.  After the holiday, I took her to my vet as she was not improving, 
had not passed urine or stool.  First thing he did was look at her anal 
glands.  They were impacted and infected.  He cleaned them out and gave her 
Covina and we brought home Orbax to be given once daily.  Everything was much 
better, she was back to her self.  Then Friday, she began hiding, not eating or 
drinking so took her to vet on Saturday.  ONE THING SHE DID THAT STRUCK ME ODD 
- SHE TRIED TO EAT THE FIRBARK THAT MY ORCHIDS ARE PLANTED IN.  Sat when we got 
to vet, my dr was not
  there, but his wife (also a vet) was.  She said her lymph glands were 
 slightly enlarged and gums very pale.  We did another blood panel.  Her white 
 cells were .98 and her red blood cells were 3.2.  Kidney and liver functions 
 were normal as were creatine and bun.  We thought about going to ER for 
 transfusion, but she would have to stay over the weekend in a cage and we 
 decided the stress would outweigh any good it might do plus her body might 
 just kill the new blood and we would be right back where we started plus 
 stress.  Again, gave Covina shot and started again on Orbax.  I wanted to try 
 a tonic that has worked wonders on cancers, etc.  Vet said ok but keep a 
 record of what I did in case it worked.  She actually seemed to improve.  I 
 was feeding with an eye dropper aruond 50 ml every hour (i can ad mixed with

 easier, heart was strong and she responded to my voice and touch.  By 12:45, 
 she had gone completely the opposite direction.  I was holding her aganst me 
 as she seemed to like the body warmth when she gasped 3 or 4 times and the

I'm so sorry.  I know how  much you must grieve but you need to rejoice that 
you were holding her lovingly when she passed and you spoke to her and told her 
it was all right to leave.  She is having no pain now, no discomfort, wherever 
it is that we all go when we pass.  But you are still here stuck with the pain 
and grief.  Please be nice to yourself and do something to relieve your 
unhappiness.  You did a wonderful thing for Nitnoy.  You gave her 4 years of 
quality life and love.  Some people don't get as much.  Hugs and blessings to 
you.

So terribly sad and so hard when they seem to get better. I think that is what 
makes it so damn hard to make a final decision. When the choice is in our hands 
it just not something that I think any of us take lightly. I'm so sorry about

Oh my heart is aching for your loss of precious Nitnoy! 
Have to admit I had tears in my eyes when I read this. 
I've been on this group/list for many years as I'm a old timer. Seen many come and go but there are some stories of a kitty's life that grips my heart..and this is one of them!



You sound like me there was nolimit on costs. I spent thousands of dollars to try to help and make my late Taz comfortable.
You had the comfort of your furbaby pass in your arms at home! She knew you loved her and bless you for giving her the chance at life even though it was short.
I know you are hurting and it is never easy to lose a precious life that is close to our heart. There is never enough words to express my thoughtsbut let it be known you are in myprayers.

I didn't have the choice as Taz just had surgery made it through the worst part with a tumor removal.
(pretty extensiveprocedure to remove a tumor above his eye that was attached to his skull) 
but wouldn't wake up. 
So I had to let him go 6 hours after surgery :(
Still to this day it still hurts but I'm in control of my loss of him. I lost him January 2002
I almost left animal rescue because he was my life and in my heart. My late husband said to take the negative and turn it into positive. At first I was like what the hell...but then it started to fall in place for me after one year. 
So today my rescue is ran solely on his legacy.Taz had a great impact on my life and many rescue kitties. 
He gave a new meaning if this makes sense. I've been in animal rescue for 35 years.
His story is told at the website below.

 Original Message Subject: [Felvtalk] Nitnoy and felvFrom: dlg...@windstream.netDate: Mon, October 15, 2012 3:07 pmTo: felvtalk@felineleukemia.orgMy Nitnoy crossed over today at 12:45. She had been with me since 2008, survived a raccoon biting of her tail and being FELV +. There was nothing to idicate whaat was going on. During the holidays, she was not doing well so took her to ER. They did x-rays and complete bloodwork. I had told them she was FELV+ but they did not seem upset that she was just 1 point low on red and white cells. After the holiday, I took her to my vet as she was not improving, had not passed urine or stool. First thing he did was look at her anal glands. They were impacted and infected. He cleaned them out and gave her Covina and we brought home Orbax to be given once daily. Everything was much better, she was back to her self. Then Friday, she began hiding, not eating or drinking so took her to vet on Saturday. ONE THING SHE DID THAT STRUCK ME ODD - SHE TRIED TO EAT THE FIRBARK THAT MY ORCHIDS ARE PLANTED IN. Sat when we got to vet, my dr was not there, but his wife (also a vet) was. She said her lymph glands were slightly enlarged and gums very pale. We did another blood panel. Her white cells were .98 and her red blood cells were 3.2. Kidney and liver functions were normal as were creatine and bun. We thought about going to ER for transfusion, but she would have to stay over the weekend in a cage and we decided the stress would outweigh any good it might do plus her body might just kill the new blood and we would be right back where we started plus stress. Again, gave Covina shot and started again on Orbax. I wanted to try a tonic that has worked wonders on cancers, etc. Vet said ok but keep a record of what I did in case it worked. She actually seemed to improve. I was feeding with an eye dropper aruond 50 ml every hour (i can ad mixed with 3 cans hot water so she could swallow and also to egt fluids into her. She got around 50ml of tonic also. She took a turn for the worse this am at 3:30, but then seemed to get better. She was breathing easier, heart was strong and she responded to my voice and touch. By 12:45, she had gone completely the opposite direction. I was holding her aganst me as she seemed to like the body warmth when she gasped 3 or 4 times and the light in her eyes went out. I knew she was going and I told her it was all right. She held on with her claws, gave a sigh and that was all.___Felvtalk mailing listFelvtalk@felineleukemia.orghttp://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
