|Worn out Bertie|
Bertie had rallied a bit after the last visit, but lost weight again today. I've been trying to get as much critical care into her as she will take. Sometimes she sucks it down willingly, and other times she fights me (usually as her weight goes up).
I am discouraged with today's outcome. The vet is not optimistic. She said Bertie's lungs did not look good on the x-rays. She suspects the PVM is taking its toll on Bertie's lungs. We're still doing the blood panel, to see if something else comes up. I had expected Bertie's viruses would eventually present with classic URI symptoms, but it doesn't seem to be the case. She's not struggling to breathe; there's no noticeable congestion. She's just so damn tired all of the time. I think even chewing tires her out. Bertie is talkative when I hold her, is interested in her food and seems perky enough when she's moving around, but spends the large majority of her day sleeping. Everything tuckers her out.
