I am happy to say that I am improving daily.
My vet, Mark has been ringing my mum every 12 hours to get an update on me and now thinks it is less likely that I had a clot although he can't entirely dismiss it..
My walking is improving and I no longer throw my leg to the side as I try to walk, and my legs don't buckle beneath me any more. I have a bit of stiffness in my back end and a bit of a limp.
I only had the one steroid injection as Mark wanted to get me back on the Prednisalone as soon as possible as that is what is helping with my T4.
Depending on my continuing improvement, my further treatment will be discussed tomorrow. It is possible I will have an aspirin twice a week. Please see the note from my mum below about aspirin and cats.
As you can see, I am enjoying convalescing in the sun. Excuse the photo not being centred, it was taken from the bedroom window so as not to disturb me.
Thank you all for all the good thoughts, purrs and prayers. They have definitely helped me through this.
Aspirin and cats
I must stress that Aspirin is TOXIC TO CATS so should never be given without veterinary advice. It is toxic because it forms salisylic acid in the body and cats don't have the enzyme to metabolise it, so it can build up in the body. A single 300mg tablet can be fatal.
If Flynn does need Aspirin to prevent clotting he will have a low dose 75mg tablet no more often than once every three days. Hopefully he will not need it.
