What a relief to hear that Lisi is doing better. I, too, have been very worried. I honestly do have faith that she will be completely well soon and not have lasting ill effects...but still worry. Hugs and kisses to the four of you.

Thank you dear Sylie---I am sorry to have worried everyone, but I was in much need of prayer last night/yesterday! I so appreciate your love & concern as it was truly an urgent need for us! I do think it made a great difference in calming me especially. DH said I was shaking so hard when I was trying to get the cortisone down Lisi---who refused to open her mouth! As a matter of fact we had to give her a few extra drops because in fighting to hold her mouth closed, we lost some of the liquid.
I am not easily rattled, but yesterday I certainly was---it was very scary.

Sandi - I'm glad that she's doing better now. I guess for kids they give prednisone but obviously cortisone is in the same family as a steroid.Glad I was able to articulate what I've learned from the best of the best docs here. Most of my videos show how to prevent food allergies but also what to do if you have a reaction. Many parents give Benedryl when they see a reaction which works if it's a very minor one or an asthma inhaler if it affects breathing but that won't stop the reaction in it's tracks...only Epinephrine will and steroids and antihistamine help afterwards. Wish I didn't have the personal experience with my son to learn all this but I know my videos saved lives since the org I did it for got many letters so it's worth it.
I don't think there will be long term affects, but Lisel will be feeling very low for several days and more at risk for a reaction within the next few weeks so just be very careful about what she eats and what she does. Her immune system took a hit and so the threshold is lower to start another. But happier this was reaction to the shot where it's not like she'll be exposed to that ingredient - whatever it was that made her sick. So sorry about the cat - that's all you needed.

Sandi, I am so thankful to God for hearing our prayers. I was worried but I do have a strong faith and could only leave it in his hands (which are the best hands to be in). I am also thankful for your wisdom and prompt recognition of what anaphylactic shock looks like. I will continue to pray for Lisi, you and your DH. Thanks for the update.

Thank God Lisi is doing better! Sandi, I was so worried and I can't even begin to imagine how stressed I would be in that situation. I know you tried within all your power to protect Lisi and I am more than confident that you do what is best for your babies . I'm relieved that the vet said she will advocate for Lisi not to get any further vaccines! Im so sorry to hear about your cat. Please rest up and we will continue to pray that Lisi feels 100% soon :hug:

I'm so glad she is doing better today... Still needs snuggles and rest tho poor baby

Will keep praying.

Maybe giving her some Thuja would help... it's used for dogs to detox vaccine "junk". Grace had a lot of improvement once she was started on it...

hugs,
Tori

I am sorry we both had to lose sleep---maybe we could take turns next time! You are a wonderful Auntie to my two!
I hope I did not come off harshly (although it is something I seem to do well w/out meaning to), I guess my point was that there really is more than one point of view out there and it isn't as simple as we all wish it were. Heaven knows I gave it all I had to locate the best possible vaccine, but I now believe that ANY vaccine would have produced the same results.
You are very dear to my heart & if I was offensive I offer my sincere & heart-felt apologies.
Sandi, of course, you were not offensive in any way. And, I agree that there really is more than one point of view out there ... and, it isn't as simple as we wish it were. If anything, I would feel terrible in giving someone the wrong advice or feedback.

I know you did and continue to do whatever you can to assure that Kitzel, Lisi, and your cat, are getting the best of care possible. You are the best Mommy in the world for your precious fluff babies.

I might have lost some sleep worrying about Lisi ... but, I made up for it after you let us know she was doing better! LOL. And, during my sleepless hours, it gave me lots of time to say many extra prayers for your beautiful angel.

I am the one who needs to apologize for coming across as being so emotional. Well, in truth, I do feel more emotional these days. Let's blame it on the MS.

I take to heart when one of our fluff babies on SM is sick. All of us feel such a strong bond and love for our little ones. And, like you, I find such comfort when Snowball's aunties have been there for him and his mommy when he has been sick. (His final lab results came back normal last week. I was so relieved and grateful that I cried over that, too.)

Dearest Sandi, I will say prayers for your cat, too. And, I will be checking in to see how darling Lisi is doing. Please give Lisi and Kitzel a big kiss and hug from their Auntie Marie. I love you, Sandi.

Thank you my friend---it means the world to me! I recognized the symptoms because i have anaphylactic reactions to dental procedures w/local anesthesia---the real problem is that it is a cross reaction to something else that sets off my heart besides all the awful swelling!
