This really sucks REALLY

I am struggling so so so much there is nothing anyone can do only me,

We had to have our cat put to sleep on thursday, he was 2 years old, and adorable. He contracted an illness called FIP, which can spread from cat to cat

We had thought he was a little sick, he had had worms the week before and never seemed to get any better after worming, he was losing weight and not eating a lot, so we decided an overhaul was the best thing, we took our other cat Spooky too.

The vet examined him and said he was in a very bad way, his liver wasnt working properly and she thought he may have either had a tumor or an allergic reaction to the worming tablets.

Typsey was sent straight to their bigger practice where he was given an xray of his stomach and he had blood taken.

Two hours later we gets a phone call, its this FIP ( I went to animal school and I’d never heard of it) It infects the cat and the cat cannot fight it, basically all his internal organs were finally shutting down.  There was treatment to keep him alive for perhaps another few weeks but it wasn’t worth hurting him anymore, you could see the sadness in his eyes.

Paul was with him when he went to sleep, I couldnt be there.

On thursday my best friendSiancame up to comfort me, she bought me a lovely gift, a necklace and a bottle of wine. Both went down a treat.

I know drinking isnt the answer but it helped me get to sleep. I woke up fri morning though in such pain, I had the runs and then when I tried to have a drink I started to vomit. YUK drunk I was and I felt it.

I can normally drink much more than a bottle of wine but with not eating much all day as I was too upset I think it just went to me head.

I cannot think of a worse year in my entire life.

We went to see my nan who is in hospital on Fri night, and she is in a bad way, the doc’s dont seem to know what to do. I don’t think they can do anything.

My mum then rang me with the test results of her Xray. There is no change. How can there be no change she should be getting better from phunmonia surley its been two months. She said it could be scarring on her lungs so she has to see a specialist next week.

I just wish things would get easier you know, everything is just such a mess, I dont know where I am anymore.

Ed is calling me and I dont want to go back, but its getting so hard.

Umm I think this post is very very long. I should go,

Love ya all.

Hi

Just to say that some things are looking a bit more positive for me,

hope to get a new car at the weekend, even though we have only paid for half of it, the man who we getting it off is trusting us till we get Pauls compo claim.

 

We heard from the vet and typsey did die of FIP. so we have had to put a warning up on the caravan site.

 

Spooky is having a blood test on Mon, but I think she will be ok, she is middle aged so fingers crossed,

 

mum has to have a cat scan to see if the scaring on her lungs is scars and not something else, and my nanas problems are just the same,

 

Slowly getting there,

Keep fighting everyone,

 

Love ya all,

 

Dawn
