I am freaking out and just need to get this down....
I took Swizzle in this am for follow up blood work. Her blood was really thin and her gums were pale. I had to get Chiclet to the adoption event, so the tech said why don't I leave Swiz and she would have the vet call me.
Which she did. Red cell count for a healthy cat should be between 32-55. Swizzle's is 10. Which is bad. The vet couldn't remember if a combo FIV/FeLV test had been done, so she ran it again. And it came back a mild positive for Feline Leukemia. I am freaking out.
I am taking the kittens over now to have them tested. I will ask if it could be a false negative/positive for them at this age.
The vet is going to send out blood work today for a PCR test for FeLV which is more definitive....but we won't hear until maybe Tuesday. She said if it is positive, there isn't much we can do for her but let her go. And even if it is negative, her chances may still not be good unless she can bounce back from this - and since we don't know what "this" is, there are so many things that could go wrong.
I managed to get through the event (no adoption for Chiclet) but started to cry on the way home. And I am crying again now.....
Please be thinking about us here....it is going to be a few long days.
