'The vet called this afternoon with the results of Oreo's tests and they revealed that he DOES NOT have Pancreatitis, so that's good news! The bad news is that we still don't know what caused the seizure, nor why he is still feeling ill. Although he is still eating normally, Oreo didn't do much other than sit in his box car all morning. I know that yesterday was very stressful for him and he's probably still tired so I will give him another day or two to recuperate. If he doesn't seem better by the weekend, I will take the vet's advice and make an appointment with a specialist.
I am going to have his Urine analyzed to see if anything is found there. I'll go to pick up a kit from the vet to try and get a sample at home. If I am unable to get a sample, it will have to be done at the vet which means more stress for Oreo. Hopefully I'll be able to get one while he's comfortable at home.
Pudding got him to come out of his box car for a little bit this afternoon. Oreo is not running around, but he did engage in a little peek-a-boo which is good. Hopefully Pudding will help to entice him to move around a bit. I know the stress of the new kitten doesn't help everything but if Oreo can become comfortable with him, it will make things easier.
I didn't sleep much last night from worry. I know I've got to try and rest but it's easier said than done in a situation like this. I don't think I will be able to fully rest until I know that Oreo is back to normal and/or OK. Thanks again to everyone for all of your continued support, thoughts and prayers. I am so very grateful for each and every one of you!
