I was back in the vet's office last Thursday. Mom found a lump under my skin and she was worried about it. Right now, the vet that saw me said the lump is about the size of a lima bean, and it was probably caused from one of the injections I had couple of weeks ago. She told mom to keep an eye on it for any change in size.
My eyes had been watering and red rimmed, too. The vet wasn't particularly concerned with that, saying it was probably a mild flair up of the feline herpes virus. What did concern her was my belly/abdomen. She said it felt swollen. It didn't hurt when she pressed on me. I didn't cry or growl or his. However, when she took my temperature I certainly let her know that I did not appreciate it one bit! My temperature was normal though, so that was good.
They stole some more of my blood to send to the lab again. This time they were going to check for some infectious diseases. A different vet called back and left the results on the answering machine. Mom got them when she got home.
He said that my white cell count is still high, but not as high as it was two weeks ago. He also said the titers (sp?) showed exposure to FECV/FIP. Mom is scared now because she doesn't know if that means I have FIP. She read online that FIP is generally fatal and that has her all upset. Her eyes keep leaking.
I'm going to back to the vet on Wednesday afternoon to have my belly x-ray done to see if the vet(s) can find out what is going on there.
I'm acting like my normal self again, which makes mom happy. But her stomach is in knots. Please keep me in your purrs and prayers that I don't have FIP.
