    Hi Sparrow,

    Yes, Storm is now at home with me. I picked him up around 2 PM this afternoon. He is on gads of medicine. Since I know you used to work in a vet’s office, I’ll tell you the details.

    He is using four different types of eye drops and anointments. They are: a serum made from Storm’s own blood, an antibiotic called Cioxan, fucithalmic (another antibiotic), and voltarem, which is an anti-inflammatory and an analgesic. He is also taking a broadband antibiotic, a non steroidal anti-inflammatory called Metacam, two different types of heart medications and a diuretic. He has medications every two hours, except at night when I can move it to every four hours. The next week is going to be hard on me while I try to tend to Storm’s needs. To help me keep the medications straight, I made up a schedule that I printed out on my computer.

    Storm is suffering but I am not too surprised by this because he had a keratectomy and corneal ulcer debridement. He does not like having the eye drops and anointments applied. (I am afraid that I am not the best of nurses.) Storm does not want to sit still while I try to get drops into his eye. It is challenging. Also, Storm is wearing a “cone hat” to stop him from rubbing his eyes. He does like that. I think its cute but I try not to let him see that.

    Emotionally, I am holding up but I am worn out from by my blood cancer and am fighting renewed infections without benefit of antibiotics.

    I am glad Storm is home with me and I think he is glad to be home. We get along quite well.


    Thanks Paul and Linda.
