Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Things are crazy now. I think we are all trying to stay healthy and maintain sanity as well. I thought I would start this thread so folks can check in and discuss how they're doing. I want all my BIC friends to be okay. I will kick this off with a first post. Take care of yourself lovelies.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@tsavorite Sounds like it was just an infection in the first place. We've had plenty of abscess, ugh, and this one was way different. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian ,

Do you think it was an infection that would have localized into an abscess in time?  I know it's important to get a cat on antibiotics as soon as you can when there is an infection.  We have prevented abscesses sometimes with antibiotics.  I'm sorry that Bandit, and you, had to go through this!  We have had too many experiences with cats, infections, abscesses and drains.  Two years ago there was a cat that would attack our cats in our front yard or backyard.  He was an incredible fighter.  

 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@tsavorite I honestly have no idea. I'm so sorry about your cats poor things. Bandit finished his antibiotics yesterday. I have been trying to give him liquid food and he's been drinking it a little. More than hes eaten in a while at least.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian ,

Thank you. That cat that was a fight club veteran moved away with his owners.  He wasn't neutered, so I don't think it was his fault that he was such a fighter.  I hope that Bandit continues to improve, but I also hope that you can keep his Vet, or a different Vet, informed about how he is doing, in case he needs a different antibiotic to help him through this. 

How are you doing?  I hope George is keeping you entertained and cheered.  He is so darn cute!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian - OMGosh!  You need a new vet!  To not talk to you at the clinic and not return your phone calls is totally unacceptable!

 

It sounds like you are on the road to recovery with COVID and the kidney stone.  Hopefully you'll be feeling yourself soon!  I also hope Bandit feels better soon too!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Titian06 Thank you! Yeah I'm a lot better, like 55-65%. Normally we have another vet but this time we got this newer guy. Never use him again.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian That all sounds terrible. I'm thinking positive thoughts for you and for Bandit! 💗

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@curlychiquita Thank you very much!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

What a scary situation @Samtian. I really admire how you are holding up. I could not imagine fighting Covid and passing a kidney stone. Hopefully the vet will call you soon so you can get some answers and learn how to care for Bandit’s wound.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Loretta55 Thank you. It definitely hasn't been easy. I'll probably have to just go back into the vets to ask questions.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian Omg. I pray that this month will be better for you and Bandit. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@SportyGirly125 Thank you, much appreciated!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

So there I was being lazy and finally waking up Thursday morning/afternoon and I awoke with quite a big headache. I actually have constant headaches almost 24/7 so I wasn't too concerned, even though this one kinda hurt more than usual. Friday morning headache again and I start coughing. Great I'm getting the flu or cold or whatever is going around right now. But I also haven't really been interacting with people or going anywhere and at work I've mostly been out on the line by myself. Saturday morning, that wasn't fun waking up. Thought I wasn't feeling good because I made my lazy butt get up early and actually cook something for lunch. Get to the temp check at work 202.7.

Weird. I never ever get fevers. My body has been scorching to the touch before and it's normal temp. Two rechecks with a different one both at 99. Work tells me since my temp is fine they are still sending me home, I have a few covid symptoms, but it's going to be an occurrence. I was like...Anyways a few hours later HR says go get a rapid test at this location. I drive into town, have to pay the copay I couldn't afford anyways 😕 , and wait for the dr. Temp check was 96. I've had the covid test twice before, I really really hate that experience. 

Rapid test is taken different, thankfully, but still not a pleasant experience. Only takes 15 minutes! So there I was sitting playing on my phone. Thinking work is probably drawing up my pink papers, three negatives in a row, I must just want the time off. (Not true, lol not worth the test in my opinion.) The Dr said a stomach flu is also going around so we'll prepare for that next. Dr comes in and wouldn't you know it...blows me almost out of my chair telling me I'm positive for Covid. 

Hopefully I got it after work and didn't get my very very health riddled coworker.  I also am worried about my mom, who comes home from a trip on Monday.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian  Oh no. That’s so crazy. I hope things are getting better for you. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

yikes!! @Samtian I hope you are on the road to recovery!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

How frightening @Samtian , sending prayers and well wishes for you all. Feel better! 💞

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian   oh hun!  Thats so scary.  If you need anything at all send a dm.  ANYTHING.   What an awful situation to be sick and to be so worried about everyone else on top :(. Fingers crossed it was caught before it spread any further.  

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Oh my gosh!!! @Samtian I'm so sorry!!! 😣 My thoughts and prayers for you and your family

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Thank you so much everyone. Sorry it's a bit taxing just even getting on the computer or I'd reply to each of you. Unfortunately it was not possible for my mom to stay away. I also had to go to the hospital this last night/ early morning. Turns out I have a kidney stone as well.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Oh no, @Samtian 😪 I'm glad you're home!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian - I am so sorry to read that you have COVID and now a kidney stone!  I hope you will be feeling better soon.  Best wishes to you and your mom!  (((HUG)))  💖💖💖
