On Tuesday, December 20th, after not eating anything for dinner or breakfast, Brady began to throw up and I rushed him to the vet when I saw blood. Brady had chest radio-graphs done, blood tests ran and an IV to help with his dehydration. Brady's blood work looked okay, no damage to major organs from his meds, but his radiology report showed fluid on his lungs. Our doctor added 2 more medications to the mix.. One to get him eating again, the other to help relieve some of the pressure from the lung fluid. It took a couple of days, but Brady finally came back around to eating and started to feel better. It was our Christmas miracle! We were able to spend our holiday together and I couldn't have asked for a better gift! I only wish it had lasted. Christmas day, Brady started sneezing/coughing a lot. It's very hard to tell the difference between a kitty's sneeze and cough but neither should be taken lightly, especially with a heart patient. The next day, we're back to the vet's office and are instructed to double his lasix medication and keep him warm. If there is no improvement, return on Thursday. :/ My poor baby, he is so sweet and I hate seeing him go through this. I had to ask the doctor the inevitable question.... Am I doing this for me, or am I still doing this for Brady, and, when it comes time, will you tell me and help me through it? His reply made me feel a little better, right now, we're still doing this for Brady. He's not in any pain and we should still try to save him. That's all I needed to hear. I'll do whatever it takes as long as my baby is strong enough and not in any pain. No matter what I have to do, or what I have to sell, I'm doing it all for the love of Brady.    https://www.facebook.com/ForBrady
