Wordless Wednesday and Update.


**********************************************************************************
Update
I have been on the Methimazole transdermal gel for 10 days now and had no apparent bad effects from it. I have only had a low dose rubbed into my ear, 0.1cc once a day. From Tuesday I started on 0.1cc twice a day. We are really hoping I can continue to cope with the gel. If I am able to stay on it, I will have another blood test for my T4 level in about 3 weeks.
I still get intermittent diarrhoea but that is likely caused by the hyperthyroidism. Hopefully if the vet can get my levels nearer where they should be the diarrhoea will stop and all my poops will be good again.
I feel quite well in myself and only get a few off days when I don't want to eat and just sleep all day. I get a lot more good days than bad days now, and as you can see in my wordless post, I even climbed my favourite tree for the first time since Eric left us.

  21. Tree climbing is a most excellent sign, Flynn! We are crossing our paws that the higher dose will go down just as well, and all these troubles will be just a memory with the coming of spring.

    Purrs,

  22. YAY! Flynn I'm so happy to hear the transdermal gel so far seems to be doing the trick - hopefully the blood check will snow you're getting better with the T4 level......climbing a tree is a FABULOUS demonstration that you're feeling a lot better. I too still have "off days" - but mostly life is good!

    Hugs, Sammy

  38. As soon as I saw you in that tree, Flynn, I knew it was good news. That gel is a wonder. My Tungsten dislikes the bother of the application, but then she'd dislike pills or powder more. There really isn't much fuss with the gel. It should normalise your numbers.

  48. So happy the gel seems to be working well for you Flynn. It is fantastic that you felt well enough to climb your favorite tree. It must be a little strange to take your climb without Eric there by your side, but he is watching you have fun from the Bridge & would want you to feel better & do things that make you happy. Keep on getting stronger. You bring so much happiness to everyone who knows you.
