I'm thrilled to share that Theo is home!!!!!! I was so excited on the drive down, sooo looking forward to seeing my Theo again.
|Theo on his way home Nov 22, 2020
Theo did great in his last night at the vet. By the time we picked him up, his temperature was back to normal and no sign of any more seizures. He was relatively quiet on the drive home, as he rested and bathed.
The vet said it would be best to keep Theo in a room where he won't have the opportunity to jump or fall down and hurt himself. They want him to stay pretty quiet and calm so he can focus on healing, that's a tall order for a cat like Theo! We transformed our bedroom into such a place by removing the bed and placing the mattress on the floor. We took out the cat tree and the window perch for now - everything is low to the ground and cushions and blankets are all over. Of course, Theo's not keen about being behind a closed door.
Welcome home Theo!!
It sounded like everyone who came into contact with Theo at the veterinary hospital fell in love with him. That's no surprise, as he's a delightful being, full of love and purrs. I was reflecting the other day about his temperament and it occurred to me, I don't think I've ever heard Theo hiss or growl.
I'm grateful to all the amazing veterinary staff at Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital. They were amazing at communicating what was going on, they were punctual to appointments - they were fantastic to work with. Dr. Silver and Dr. Bailey are very kind and skilled neurologists/neurosurgeons.
Thank you again to all of you who have emailed and left comments, your kind, loving support has been such a gift through out this emotionally overwhelming experience. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!
