Finally! Some Good News!

Reyna went to the vet Monday afternoon to get her blood tested courtesy of the new happy meds she started two weeks ago. Thankfully, the tests showed absolutely no problems. Yay! Something going our way, for once! Of course, I don’t want to get too excited about it and jinx us...

The vet is going out of town today and won’t be back until the end of the month. We’d settled on me calling him on the 30th, after Reyna’s pre-op appointment, to talk about that and whether or not we needed to up her dose of happy meds. After all, since I’d been out of town all week, I didn’t really know how she was acting. She seemed quiet Saturday and Sunday, but that’s to be expected after a week of boarding. Doc figured I’d need at least a week to get a good idea of how she was doing. Boy, was he ever wrong. Monday night, Reyna was still a little quieter than usual, but by Tuesday, she was back to normal. Normal for her, anyway. I called the vet Wednesday morning to let him know I’d need a new batch of meds, since I don’t have enough for an increased dose until he gets back. He was properly shocked to hear that Reyna is still crazy (Reyna? Crazy? Nah…) As of this morning, we’re doubling her dose of happy meds. I’ll check in with him on the 30th to let him know how she’s responding, and if necessary, we can go up one more level. If that doesn’t tone her down, though, I’m not sure what we’ll do. Sedatives, maybe. For me.

Glad you got some good news, too. Reyna is not crazy....Reyna is might definitely need the sedatives! :) Love you, Mom
