Kuron had his blood test on thursday, and his red-cell count is down, which we expected. It's not down dangerously, though, so hope still springs.
Of course, because it's Kuron life wouldn't be the same without the little surprises, and it turns out he's actually put on weight during this most recent crisis. He's eating a lot now, and drinking a lot, and peeing like a horse. He's started to pee like a horse in the bedroom, which we would normally regard as a sign something is wrong with him, but he's also using the litter tray quite happily, which makes us think he simply gets taken short. Still, we're keeping an eye on him.
He spends much of the day asleep, which he always did, and he's a wee bit wobbly on his feet, which is probably because of the medication he's on, but when he's up and about he's bright and vocal and actually seems more like his old self.
So. We'll see.

More positives than negatives there, methinks, so reasons to be cautiously optimistic.

That's the way I'm thinking, although I'm also trying to be realistic. Mostly I'm defaulting to my usual position of `we'll see.'

Here's to little Kuron, little trooper that he is! This is good news, at least the part about his gaining weight. The low red blood cell count might be manageable. But like you say, it's a we'll see situation.

Every day with him is a bonus for you and Bogna.

You're right, every day is a bonus, and we're treating them like that. But it's now almost a fortnight since his blood transfusion and he's still fighting his corner. Tonight and last night he was waiting for me at the bottom of the stairs when I came home, which he hasn't done since he got sick. It's hard not to be cautiously hopeful.

Well, he can be a sod when he wants to be - he does lack teh cute that Dougal and Kasia have in weapons-grade quantities - but he's adorable in his own way and we don't think he's quite ready to give up yet. He has another blood test on Monday.

Sending careful hugs and lots of medical mojo Kuron's way. Duzie's sleeping beside me on the sofa, which is probably his version of the same thing.
Hugs and hopeful smiles,
Jean Marie

Many, many thanks. I don't know whether it's the medication or the mojo, but we think something is working.
Big hugs.
