Despite Hamlet’s diagnosis of Chronic Kidney Failure, it is treatable! He’s responding well to the subcutaneous fluids I began to give him yesterday. This past Friday morning Hamlet was dehydrated and not eating and I saw my vet and he taught me how to give the fluids. Hamlet’s eating again and was amazingly cool about letting me stick him with a needle. I was a bit scared to do it.
In other good news, the ER doctors were incorrect that Hamlet’s carcinoma had returned. We saw his oncologist on Tuesday and he confirmed this. I had a birthday this week and it was the worst week ever really. I am feeling better though as I can celebrate what a fighter my Hamlet is.
