The day I feared has arrived. Homer started coughing last night. Hubby sat up all night with him & we were off to the vets first thing this morning. His Frusemide has been upped from 160mg spread out over twice a day to 180mg spread out over 3 times a day. It can be upped a bit more if he doesn't respond on that dosage but he's getting near the limit of what he can have.:( In the meantime we battle on.
We're keeping everything crossed that our brave boy responds well.

Fingers crossed! Our breakthrough last night came this am. I thought I was going to be calling vet back for that last call but found Zeus sleeping on his side!! I was thrilled! Hunny said he ate a 'little' more then last nite and we ledft his food out for him so hopefully it will appeal to him and he will finish it.

Thanks for the kind thoughts everyone. He was very restless this morning but he's more comfortable now. Hopefully we can stop him coughing, it breaks my heart to see him like this. Will update tomorrow on how he's doing.

Quick update. It's been 3 days now & not one cough.:nicejob: We've been lucky so far that he's been so stable, but we know we're on borrowed time. His quality of life is still good though & that's what matters most. He's not ready to let this damned disease take him from the people who love him the most just yet & neither are we.
