Ms Kitty's treatment on the go!

So an update on Ms Kitty!! Her iodine treatment is in the works now. I have spoken with the nuclear medicine clinic in the city and we have a date all set up and a ride down there too!! The date is Wednesday April 11th.The vet is sending them her paperwork and on the 9th of March she gets bloodowork done to send to the clinic. She has to be off her meds for a week and have hyperthyroid levels when they take her blood so the clinic has up to date levels on her. I am quite excited for her, as once this treament is done 98% chance she'll be free of hyperthyroidsm and will live out the rest of her days healthy, happy and comfortable!! The clinic even told me since her levels aren't crazy through the roof she has an even greater chance for success!! And you can't really beat the average 98% chance. :) My bf isn't too excited, he keeps thinking about the cost, but he does agree in the long run it makes more sense for us financially, so I am sure he'll get over it. He tells me as long as he sees a smile on my face he's happy and it doesn't matter the cost. I just can't wait for April 11th, I had to share!

That is very exciting.....I agree that sometimes the up front cost can make you hesitate, but you are thinking long term and that is the attitude. I will have my fingers crossed that it all goes well!!
