Not really Barbara, I'm at day seven second time round and feeling better so on or about then you should notice a difference, it will be a sudden change if your system works like mine.

That's where I must have gone wrong because within two weeks it was back.

I don't know why it happens, but, it does. Son was on antibiotics for 3 days, got better and immediately went to work. He came home in tears from so much pain after 3 days.

Truthfully, I think I have a touch of the flu on top of this. So that could account for the wobbly walk.

I was on antibiotics for three weeks until I felt clear, after two weeks I felt OK but took another course just in case.
This time I have learnt to have a script close by and get on top of it quickly

Just take good care of yourself! That doesn't sound like anything to mess around with.

Prayers being sent.....

Thanks Vicki. Boy oh boy, energy is something I could sure use right now. I get tired at the slightest exertion. I just ate a banana, and my tongue actually got tired chewing it.

the only experience i've had with lasix is in the horse racing industry, so i can't help you much there, barbara. i'll just hope and pray you feel better soon.

and you should make a phone call to attie, considering his recent experience with it. that is, if you can catch him.

at the sound of the bell he's off and running a good furlong or two...

It's true. 2 of my kids have had cat scratch fever that they got from new kittens, although the symptoms are different from yours. But cellulitis is a diffuse, bacterial infection that can enter the bloodstream and become systemic if not treated promptly and completely so your body is really trying to protect you by making you too exhausted to do much. You shouldn't. Rest and let yourself heal, my friend. And if you can avoid too much contact with your little kittens right now, it might be better. You wouldn't want to get something else or have a scratch in your already infected leg.
