Well. Well. Well.
I’ve been proven a liar.
I would have sworn I was preparing for another loss. Yet, that did not stop me from researching Homeopathy to find a remedy that may improve Karma’s condition.
Saturday. I came to a firm decision to make an appointment with the in-home Veterinarian who performs euthanasia. Just by the way Karma looked and acted I thought I knew the end was near. I never made that call.
In the meantime, I and my husband had not stopped researching Homeopathy to find a remedy that may improve Karma’s condition. That very same morning that I was going to make the appointment, Karma was given the first dose of the Homeopathy remedy my husband and I chose. We did not know the outcome, (we never do!)
I did not have much hope that anything of great importance would happen. Yet if I had not given that remedy the question would have forever remained in my mind … WHAT IF?
Both of our Veterinarians quit. In their minds, this was the END. No call backs when I was told I would be hearing from them. No follow ups with medications I requested or questioned. It was as though I came upon a wall of silence. This came as both a shock and a Blessing because their actions only made me more determined to help Karma’s anxiety and vomiting.
Both issues have been addressed. And to our shock, to our utter disbelief, Karma went from looking like he was on death’s door, to walking up and down stairs and no longer vomiting, something he had been doing every day, a few times a day. That stopped.
Saturday evening hubby and I just stared at each other, whispering again and again, “He didn’t vomit.” Eyes wide, mouths open, we just stood there whispering. Truly a pinch me moment. Is this really happening?
Now granted Karma is very weak, has lost a lot of weight, yet his hunger is coming back and he is tolerating larger portions as I slowly increase his intake each day. He is still a one-on-one care, I feeding him and giving fluid pushes twice daily, morning and evening, yet to see this turn around, brings such relief to this Mom’s Heart.
Now for the real challenge. When to give the next dose of Homeopathy is the question. For you see, with Homeopathy, IF you over dose, you can actually cause the symptoms you are treating. And as far as all the books we have read by the “experts” we have found that their system of dosing is not correct so we have come up with our own system that works. Scary? You bet! We are flying solo here!
The END it seems is not yet. When that shall be, no one knows, which holds true for any of us. Yet, no matter how bleak the picture looks, do not give up! OH. MY. GOSH. I cannot stress this strongly enough. We have been given more precious time with our Karma because we followed through with something we didn’t know would work, yet we tried it. And by golly it did work!
I would not recommend what we are doing to anyone. Talk about stress!! Not only am I am Mom, but an “independent caretaker” learning how to treat serious conditions without any guidance from anyone. The knowledge I have today has taken years to achieve. I have the grey hairs to prove that this endeavor I have undertaken is the most difficult one I have in my Life.
In closing, I am leaving comments open. I am not sure how much visiting I will be doing to your blogs or how many comments I will be answering. Between the last few weeks and this weekend, I am beat a’roney. Time for Mom to recoup. And the kicker is, I still don’t know one way or another if Karma truly has made a “recovery” or if this is just the “feeling good phase” before the end.
Yet his “energy” is so improved that I can breathe again …
