05:27 pm - Cat update
I just found out that Buddy goes back for a second radioiodine treatment (calculated correctly this time) on Tuesday. The current problem is when Buddy is not on the thyroid medicine, he eats lots, but his metabolism is so hyped that he loses weight rapidly, when he's on the dosage of thyroid medicine he needs to get his metabolism in the correct range seriously depresses his appetite, causing him to lose weight slowly. With luck, dealing with the thyroid problem will eliminate the need for thyroid medicine and he'll actually be able to gain some of the several pounds of weight he's lost in the last couple of months back. We should have final results for all of this 2 weeks after we get him back. Until his appointment, Becca is coaxing him to eat and it seems to be working, but is lots of work.

Poor kitty. I hope the second treatment works. It's got to be hard on his system to go through it twice, too...
