Another Georgia update

Momma wrote the vet last night that Cheysuli seemed quite concerned about Georgia. The vet said it was time for another remedy. See, Chey had been concerned about Georgia about 48 hours before she became symptomatic and so Momma said that she was worried there was something happening that she wasn't picking up on.

Anyway, the vet gave Georgia more of the remedy she got that helped her this last time.

Momma quite likes this vet, although Georgia doesn't always do well. See, probably what's happened is that Georgia has a benign brain tumor. The allopathic vet that orginally diagnosed that gave her two to six months to live. They put her on pred. While she didn't wobble at all, she didn't really like to do anything, like sit with Momma or play with me. She just wanted to eat and drink and sleep.

So Momma decided to try homeopathic medicine. Now she is off the pred and has been for about two months. She gets wobbly and then they give her a remedy which helps for awhile and then she gets wobbly again. This is pretty normal as her disease advances. There really isn't anything anyone else can do. Neither vet thinks Georgia could survive the invasive brain surgery that would be required to "cure" her because she is such an elderly cat.

Anyway, we think that her head bobbing is better already which is good 'cause usually it takes about 10 days before she really starts responding to a treatment. We're quite happy if she responds faster because that means her body is fighting better.

Momma wants to thank everyone for their concern and good wishes for Georgia! The first vet said she would probably only live two to six months. We're at five and counting. Momma is very happy 'cause Georgia has enjoyed most of the stuff that she really likes for the last few months and seems happy even when her body is acting funny.

Your mom and the vet are doing a wonderful job taking care of Georgia. Its great that your mom listens to Chey too, we meezers really do pick up on strange vibes. Georgia certainly seems to be enjoying her life very happily.
