So I decided to bump up Kirzon's appointment because he was rubbing his mouth a lot and had started to drool (the pillow he slept on was gross). So we headed up with him this morning and boy, what a trip. Because of the nasty storms last night it was almost impossible to get there - the vet is in Elmhurst, and Elmhurst got hit with a LOT of flooding. Luckily I grew up there so I was able to get us there, but it took a lot longer. And poor Kirzon was grumbling in the carrier - usually he isn't too bad. When we did get there he didn't want to be there at all and hid under a chair. And when the vet tried to check his mouth he really fought it, which he never does. His gums are bad again (he loves to rub on things, especially with his mouth - even on gross things like the shower door - ick). So his gums aren't looking good but his teeth are ok, so that is good because that means no toot cleaning needed. We are going to try pills to make him feel better this time. And while we were there I got some awesome pics from Kelly of the kittens as babies - so cool! She said that Cosmo (who was Han, the other little orange guy) is finally really showing he is a boy (if you get my meaning) and Louise is totally the queen of the house. It is good to get updates on Gus and Stellas siblings!
So our trip home was not too bad - we took the expressway - luckily we were able to get on because just east of the entrance the road was closed in both directions from flooding - the traffic going the other way was worse than I have ever seen. But we made it home and have been waiting for the next round of storms - fun!
Anyway, I hadn't planned to post, but with the vet change I wanted to update. Because Kirzon has to go back in 2 weeks, we bumped the kittens final shots so they can all go together (instead of having to head up there 3 weeks in a row). Kirzon will need a booster if he is doing better but they are waiting for now. The good news on him is that although his mouth is hurting, he is still eating because he hasn't lost any weight - he is right at 10 lbs, where he should be.
Tomorrow will be a repeat of the post I did last year about my mom. I will be back to visiting on Monday. I hope that everyone is having a good weekend!!
