4.20.13: Fred's been through a lot of tests and so far everything is normal. This may mean bad news and that Fred does have the dry form of FIP. It's extremely difficult to diagnose this terrible infection so we are left to do tests that rule out everything else. Our last hope is an MRI/Spinal tap where they test the spinal fluid for signs of increased proteins or other types of infection. We're half way to our goal-which is so wonderful, but we need more donations to be able to provide Fred with the medical care he needs.
Though he's struggling to walk, this morning Fred showed some signs of feeling a bit perkier. He actually ate on his own for the first time in days, without us syringe feeding him, and we think the treatment for his uveitis is possibly working. We don't know what Fred's future holds, but at least today there is a glimmer of hope that the kitten we love so dearly will continue to be with us.
If you wish to see copies of our invoices and estimate for the MRI/spinal tap, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll supply them to you. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! Your donation is tax deductible as we are a 501(c)3 non profit. Without you, we can't help Fred.
