ayqnarraka Biarkan berlalu, semua kepedihanmu, lelapkan matamu, biarkan mimpi membawamu, ke mana kau mahu.

Selamat malam, tidurlah sayangku, siangkan tiba bercahaya, bermula baru semua untukmu.

Abah, selamat malam. Mimpi indah. We love you :') #HepaticEncephalopathy #HE

Normal Batman the Ragdoll Kitten
kittybatcat Dear fellow cat friends, we have been away for a while because Batman has been admitted to the ER again. On Monday evening she was found by my mum, collapsed on the floor, rigid and drooling all over. Blood tests revealed extremely high levels of ammonia and she was started on liver medications. Since then she has been in altered mental status (AMS) due to hepatic encephalopathy (HE). She had 2 more seizures the last 2 days and does not respond to me when I see her.

Today she went for her ultrasound which revealed that she most probably has a porto systemic shunt (PSS); a condition whereby the blood vessel carries blood around he liver instead of through it. When the build up of toxins accumulates and crosses the blood brain barrier, HE occurs.

What saddens me the most is that the very first time I brought her in for drooling I already suspected PSS. But she was always treated symptomatically (for flu, gum problems, constipation...) as they said "she looks fine/ she's too young/ no neurological problems etc.". And then BAM, here she is all disoriented.

If anyone has gone through something similar or know of anyone who has had/has cats with liver problems please kindly get in touch. And please pray for B, it really breaks our heart to see our baby girl suffer.

  •   hi_imjada My mom does this for me too! They get yummy recipes from @thefarmersdog that are complete and balanced! Highly recommended! 4mon
  •   insta.bentley Does your dog have a liver shunt? Is this why you do this? Has it helped? I've been looking in to this for my boy.. He "had" a shunt but we did the surgery... Although he's still not back to normal liver values. Any tips or advice on your home made meal plans?! 3mon
  •   nauticalblonde247 Yep. @insta.bentley nemovon had liver surgery. But levels never went to normal. This helps greatly along w fluids under the skin. Call sub cutque. He is also on metronidazole and lactose. I make a low protein food and he gets low protein treats. Carrots..rice cakes... apples 3mon
  •   insta.bentley So what do you put in the food? Bentleys values haven't gone down to normal either. He's also on lactulose and a "vitamin" called zentonil which is milk thistle and some other vitamins to health rebuild the liver. Why do you give fluids under the skin? Sorry for so many questions! 3mon
  •   nauticalblonde247 Sweet potatoes, carrots, broccoli, apples, tilapia, salmon, white rice, kelp powder, egg shell powder, veggie oil, fish oil. Fluids under the skin help to keep him hydrated. He drinks about a gallon of water a day. So fluids help greatly. @insta.bentley and no worries about the questions. Took us a year to figure out what was wrong w nemo. So we understand. Hang in there and keep us posted. 3mon
  •   portiathepug Hi my friend. Had to do a shout out for you. I'm Coming across tons of livershunt babies and your the only one i know that prepare meals for your baby like I do. Portia hasn't had a episode in 7 months, if you look at her she is a wild wild girl now. Hopefully they reach out to you as well 3mon
  •   nauticalblonde247 @portiathepug thanks for all the shout outs :) nemo has been doing great. The food makes a huge difference. I love that u use the word "episode" too. When nemo was at a kill shelter they kept saying he doesn't eat his food, and he is a stubborn dog. But after we adopted him I new he was special. Took us eights months to diagnose him. On his 1 year b day he had surgrey. Epic and horrible moment in my life. Surgery was a partial success, but super stressful and did not go as planned. He had 2 blood transfusions and was tech not w us for a few mins. I joke with him that he has great dane blood. He has micro shunting too. Which is not curable and a bunch of other diagnosis. The homemade food and fluids under the skin help so oooo much. Hasn't had an episode in 8 months. Does have his bad days. But there are now way more good than bad :) 3mon
  •   portiathepug So awesome to hear. I praise you and look up to you. Your an awesome mom. I do know the hard work involved. I opted not to do surgery. The vet's have no clue where I live. So after research I found Rick. Nutritionist so I love that the foods we prepare are so similar. She also take Probiotics. Right away I think of you when I get in boxed on this subject. Portia hugs and kisses. 3mon

ayqnarraka Hai Abah. Selamat pagi. Kenapa tak nak bangun ni? Penat sangat ye sampai taknak bangun tidur? Sampai kena telefon ambulans.
Doktor cakap Abah in deep sleep. Penat sangatlah tu tak tidur empat hari. Abah kena kuatkan diri okay. Fight for us and yourself.

Please wake up.

ayqnarraka Hepatic Encephalopathy datang lagi. Bila ia datang Abah jadi restless. Semua benda jadi tak kena. Meracau dan tak ingat kami sekeluarga. Dia berada dalam dunia dia sendiri. Baring. Bangun kembali kemudian termenung. Kadangkala menangis mengadu sakit.

Sekarang jam 1:30 pagi. Abah tak dapat tidur dari semalam. Jika tidur pun, setakat 10 minit kemudian meracau balik.

Oh Abah. Jomlah tidur. Sebab Ayieq pun mengantuk sangat dah ni. Sebelum tidur, baca doa tidur dan harap esok lebih baik dari hari ini okay.

kmunoz28 Someone said to me the other day, thank god for your insurance. Yeah, if you say so. Granted the original price is $1200 it's still a punch in the gut every freaking time! 8mon
