Post 1292: I finally caught Andy to give him medicine…

Yesterday, Andy was especially cagey avoiding capture for his medicine. Then, when he did get captured, he resisted. I warned him about what was to come!


“Where’s that kitty??” I just didn’t know. (As far as Andy was concerned, at least, and you know from yesterday he thinks he’s hiding under the bed even though his tail’s hanging out in plain sight!)

Hee! Hee! Now all I have to do is wait till he gets tired watching me, then the cat is mine!

I caught him, but Andy put up a lot of resistance. “I’ll have to make you into a kitty burrito if you don’t settle down, Andy. Be a good boy!


Yes. Kitty burrito time for Andy! He was not happy, but he got his medicine…and his “good boy” treat, though he knew and I knew he hadn’t been a good boy!

    • It is a trick. I hold him on his abdomen, balancing him in one hand, them drape the towel over him. It takes some gymnastics to get the towel wrapped firmly around him because he’s trying to free himself for the whole process, but I manage! Of course, once I have him mostly draped in the towel, I can use two hands to complete the job.

    • Me, too, though most of my medicines these days are vitamins specifically needed by dialysis patients to replace those lost to that process. Most are OK, but there always is that one nasty-tasting one!

        • The current preferred treatment fort my disease is a monthly infusion. When I was diagnosed in December 2003, the preferred treatment was chemotherapy in pill form. (It isn’t cancer that I have, but, since it is one of those orphan diseases, doctors used what worked best at the time since there were no drugs then that were developed and approved specifically for WG.)

          • That is why they call it practicing … I had never heard of it and it took me awhile to sort it out. I am glad for your sake that there are things that can help.

          • Exactly. I have the benefit of seeing medical professionals three times a week. They do a series of check ups, ask questions about changes from the last time, and, during the month, take a blood sample for analysis of those factors affected by dialysis. In addition, a doctor and PA come around during the month to review the blood analysis and other concerns. A dietician and a social worker also come around. Fortunately, my generally positive attitude and stabilized condition make my visit with the social worker pleasant since I don’t insurmountable or difficult problems like some people on dialysis. The dietician is an old neighbor and friend, so we catch up on the neighborhood and her kids after a review of my blood results and how diet affects them. Now, my main concern is the vague symptoms of WG, which can be similar to many ordinary diseases like flu, for example, or rheumatism.
