Good news! Yesterday, Mr. Bowie had his medical check-up concerning his ear (and eye) condition after his surgery from months ago. And again, the lab results were very good, no signs of those stubborn bacteria. Els, the brilliant and experienced doctor from ’t Derde Oor Veterinary Hospital, decided to stop the antibiotic medication. But Mr. Bowie was treated for tick prevention because we live in a place with the highest tick population in Europe. Personally, I’m not too happy about putting poison or a collar on a cat. Hopefully this medication is effective for controlling ticks. I really hate hate hate these creatures…

Once again, I want to thank you for all the support and concern. That is very kind of you. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

 

Finally Some Good News

No risky surgery, for the time being. Yesterday, Mr. Bowie had his medical check-up concerning his ear surgery from last month. The lab test results were very good. It was a bit unexpected, said Els, the specialist, but we were all very happy! It looks like all the stubborn bacteria of the ear infection are killed and gone. Next month we’re going to reduce the antibiotic medication and follow up Mr. Bowie’s condition.

Back home, Mr. Bowie could check out the present he got in the hospital, a box with toys and goodies.

Once again, I want to thank you for all the support and concern. That is very kind of you. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

I’ve had a stressful day at home and it left me feeling a bit emotionally confused. I wish I had good news, but I’m afraid I don’t. This morning, Els, the specialist in the hospital, performed the surgery procedure on Mr. Bowie’s ear with great caution and expertise. Mr. Bowie’s inner ear was completely checked but unfortunately, she found serious problems in the ‘bulla tympanica’, the middle-ear. It looks like this is the real problem of Mr. Bowie’s ear and not a polyp. We’re going to try out an extra dose of a new antibiotic this month but another very risky surgery seems to be unavoidable.

Once again, I want to thank you for all the support and concern. That is very kind of you. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

There must be some kind of way outta here. Said the cat to the Vet. Just wanted to let everyone know that Mr. Bowie is 99% healed from his ear infection. To be sure we’re killing all the stubborn bacteria, Mr. Bowie needs ear drops for another week. His eye was in perfect condition!

In the waiting room. Today, Mr. Bowie had his medical check-up concerning his eye surgeries from last month. Thank goodness all went well. The healing process goes exactly according to plan. Next medical check-up within four months!

Unfortunately, the doctor noticed Mr. Bowie also needs medical treatment for an ear infection. Bummer! He needs ear drops twice a day for one week. Hang in there, my furry friend! You’re almost to the finish line, and I’ll help you get there…

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Medical update. Yesterday, Mr. Bowie had his medical check up concerning his eye surgery from last week and all went well. The healing process is going good as expected. He still needs a minor surgical procedure to remove some stitches and if necessary, insufficient working tissue from the transplant. They will perform the procedure in two weeks. Unfortunately, Mr. Bowie is depressed because he needs to stay inside and wear his cone for another week… Hang in there, my furry friend!

Got no feel, I got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat (you just keep losing and losing)
I’m OK, I’m alright (he’s alright, he’s alright)
I ain’t gonna face no defeat (yeah yeah)
I just gotta get out of this prison cell
One day (someday) I’m gonna be free, Lord!

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Update on Mr. Bowie. I was so tired after all the different procedures of treating Mr. Bowie’s eye problem over the last five months. It felt like we were spinning our wheels and getting nowhere. I decided to start looking for a second opinion. By pure chance, I found a veterinary ophthalmology specialist with an impressive international reputation in a town not far away.

Mr. Bowie underwent a long radical surgery today. They performed a conjunctivoplasty and all went well. In combination with new medicines he should fully recover. Thank goodness. Hang in there, my furry friend!

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.
