I set the timer and I have one eye on it to make sure it works properly, and then I can take my easy.

I put an update on my post on Wednesday about my vet visit, but several people have asked how I got on. If you didn't see it, I have repeated it below.
Update (from Wednesday)
My vet said I was looking good when he saw me this morning. He listened to my heart and was pleased with it. Mum told him she was worried last week that I was peeing a lot and gave him the sample she got from me.
The bad news is that the blood in urine reading is once again very high, so I am back on the Oxycare pills for 2 weeks to clear it up again. That is the downside of being on prednisalone. The dose is very low, 1mg twice a day which is not high enough that it could suppress my immune system, but it can still make me more susceptible to infections. We have to weigh the pros against the cons though, and the pred is the only medication I have been able to tolerate which is keeping my T4 numbers from going through the roof. Even the natural products I have tried made me ill again, so if I want a good quality of life I have to keep with the Pred.
Because of the infection, my vet said he wouldn't steal my blood today so that means I got starved for nothing! Mum will test my urine herself at the end of my course of tablets, and if the blood is gone I will go for my blood test then. I hope that doesn't mean I get starved again. Thanks everyone for your continued purrs for me.
