Maomao’s Condition

Maomao has been sick lately.  He lost his appetite on Wednesday and was kind of lethargic, but he rebounded somewhat yesterday.  Today he’s showing a good interest in food and his energy levels is about the same as yesterday, but he’s not out of the woods yet.  His vet just called to say that his white blood cell and platelet counts are low.  They can be caused by his FIV and/or some kind of respiratory or stomach infection.  We have to go back to the vet next Thursday and do another blood test, unless he starts vomiting or loses his appetite or becomes lethargic again, in which case we’ll have to take him to the vet right away.  So I hope we’re not heading to the vet any earlier than next Thursday afternoon.  Worrying about him is far more taxing emotionally than fighting to get medicine into him.  It must be so much tougher for parents with sick children.
