We Have Good News...

Moki went to the doctor again today for his reoccuring UTI, and guess what...Moki's temperature is now back up to a normal 101! YAH!!!! He hasn't gained any additional weight, but he also hasn't lost any! As for the UTI, we are going to treat the bleeding as a result of bladder inflamation. We have done all the tests and we know no bacteria is present. We also know that if the bleeding was a result of Moki not fully expressing his bladder, well then, bacteria would be present. If a tumor or cancer was the cause, chances are pretty good that it would have shown up on at least one of the ultrasounds we have had done, so that leaves us with one other possible cause, inflamation. So for now, we are going to try to treat the problem with some steriods to see if that helps any. I'll keep you posted as things progress!
Thank you so much to everyone who has been purring, praying, and showing your support! As soon as momma bean gets a chance she will be around to thank each and everyone of you!

Oh, Moki, what great news, guess a bladder inflammation is good news in this case.
You and Orange Boy get some rest and let your Mommy Crystal kick back a bit, too.

I am so glad that Moki's temperature is back to normal. I sincerely hope that the steroids will fix up his UTI and he can get back to normal soon.

Yay! That sounds much better than a UTI. Will Moki have extra big muscles after taking the steroids? :) Merry Christmas!

PS We're no longer sharing "seriously amused" with Mom and now have a new blog all our own. In the new year she'll probably use SA as her photoblog again.
