  1. Hello everyone. Mister has been steady as usual. His stools are coming every couple days, but I see no worse changes. Hoping he can keep steady like this.
  2. Hello all, hope Mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day! It seems as though the medication that Mister has been taking for his lungs has a side effect of making Him constipated. He needs the medication or else he begins to have trouble breathing and breathing more heavy. The medication to make him go to the bathroom has been helping him to release stool, although not as often as I would like for him to be. I wish there was an easier way for him. Thanks for the prayers everyone.
  3. Another week, but no different than last. Mister is still steady as he has been. Taking the medication given from the doctor, but only going to the bathroom every 2-4 days. Praying for him still to get better.
  4. Thank you for the prayers. Mister is still doing steady. It's been pretty much the same with him, nothing worse but nothing better. Wish I had better news to give. I monitor him like a hawk so hoping he gets better. Will continue to update.
  5. Mister is still doing the same. Some stools coming out, but in small amounts and not regularly. He is still having some breathing issues. The doctors I took him to before haven't said anything about doing a procedure to get rid of the backed up stool since they gave the medicine. but since it isn't really working, he may have to get something done. Will keep everyone updated!
  6. Thank you, happy Easter to you as well! Mister is still having issues unfortunately. I wish that the laxative would help me, but it doesn't seem to be. He isn't going regularly as he should. It's also effecting his breathing. I'm monitoring him closely. Going to contact a vet for a second option again.
  7. Mister has been taking lactulose, but is still backed up. It helps, but he only goes to the bathroom every two days. I'm watching him and hoping it will begin to help more.
  8. I have not heard of lactulose, but I will look into that! I'm doing what I can with what I have to try and help him. Going to see another doctor hopefully to get this resolved. He's been making some improvements though, I can only hope he gets better.
  9. Wishing I could come with good news, but again Mister is backed up very heavily. He rarely has passed a stool and if he has they're like little pebbles. Whenever he tries to go I can see that it is super painful for him because he meows a lot. I feel so bad, I just wish I knew how to help make it better.
  10. Some good news! I recently had someone come out to my house to check on mister. She gave me some drops that I put in his water that's supposed to help his with his bowel issues. He has actually begun to have more frequent stools. Nothing as normal, but better than being worse! She can still feel that there is a buildup, but I'm hoping he is on the right track!
  11. Mister has been having such a hard time lately it breaks my heart. His bloodwork showed his kidneys are t doing well. He's only let out a little stool in the past week. He's weak and he can't walk much and walks side to side a little. Please keep praying he gets better!
  12. Thank you so much! ❤ Mister was doing well for a couple days! Had regular stools and looked better. Then I took him to get some bloodwork done as requested by the vet and now it seems like he's gotten worse again. Little to no stools and is very weak. Barely can walk around. I just don't understand. I am hoping he will regain energy and the bloodwork can tell us something.
  13. Thank you all for thinking of Mister. It's so wonderful and I appreciate it so much. He's still doing the same unfortunately. Trying to take care of him as best as I can. I have gotten the name of another doctor, so hopefully he can give me some more insight. Please continue to pray for him!
  14. Mister is doing so-so. He has his good and bad days. Some times he gets enough energy to walk around and looks better. But most of the time he lays around and sleeps. He's still not going to the bathroom regularly. I will continue to keep you all updated on how he's doing! Praying for better news!
  15. I am SO absolutely GRATEFUL AND HAPPY for the support and help IMOM has given me. Because of them Mister was able to get checked out. I was crying tears of joy when IMOM told me the news. I couldn't believe it. Mister was told to be very backed up. Unfortunately, during the procedure, he woke up due to having a hard time breathing and they were unable to go forward. I get the results sometime in the next couple days and I am hoping it will give me some answers to what is going on with him. I hate to see him in pain. He isn't doing too well now, about the same as he has been. He still hasn't gone to the bathroom and doesn't eat much either. Blessed to have the amazing help of IMOM and all the people who help. Praying for some Better news for Mister so he can get better!
