October 21, 2009 - First, I hadn't been feeling well but thought it was just the flu. But after feeling like I wasn't getting better I called my doctor. He had the kidney center draw labs including blood cultures. It turned out to be a serious infection and my electrolytes were out of whack. Mainly my Calcium and Potassium. This was causing muscles aches, cramps and weakness. I didn't need to be admitted to the hospital or anything. I was given I.V. antibiotics while on dialysis. And dialysis helps the Potassium. But the Calcium is the hard one for me. I already have trouble keeping it up.
My cat, Misty, took a turn for the worse and has been having seizures off and on for the past two days. John and I had been treating her many infections since she was diagnosed with FIV. So, I planned on taking in and having her put to sleep.
She had another infection and wasn't responding to the antibiotics. She wouldn't eat or drink so John was giving her vitamins the vet gave us and water with an eye dropper. We had done our best but I knew it was time. I think one of the hardest things I've ever had to do was tell my cat that it was okay for her go.
Misty died some time in the middle of the night of October 21st to October 22nd while lying on me. John got up for work and realized she was dead so he moved her out to the garage. He left for work while I was still asleep. He didn't want me to go looking for Misty so he came home early. Around the time he thought I'd be waking up.
