Little Isis Update


Last night, Isis ate on her own and instead of hiding, she got up on the couch with me and snuggled and demanded a good chin scritch.
She slept on the couch all night instead of going into her hidey hole in the bedroom, and this morning at some Blue Bag Only treats.
The vet called this morning to check up on her, and he gave me the results from the two tests still pending: both are good news!
The radiologist said that indeed there are no broken bones, and that the hip/femur joint is not arthritic or bone-damaged, it looks like a congenital birth defect - which is what I suspected she had all along, because she has always kind of had a 'swagger' to her walk with that leg, ever since she was a kitten and Dr Butts in Michigan said it was probably just a birth defect or result of her being so malnutritioned as a kitten before I rescued her (which is why she's so tiny still as an adult).  So - no surgery or glucosamine supplements needed for her hip, just some rest - the vet said she probably injured it rough-housing with Pete or landed on it wrong in a jump.
And, the fructosamine results also came back as 'normal' - so her blood sugar spike yesterday was probably just a result of the stress and not eating while hiding.
Such good news!
She's sleeping now, and we wanted to express our sincerest thanks and appreciation to everyone for the comments and kind words, both on blogger and on facebook!
Thank you!
