UPDATE. This is going to be long. 

Saturday night, March 24- Reggie had been acting very lethargic, not eating or going to the restroom, so we took him to an emergency 24-hour vet. The vet did a routine exam and found that his bladder is blocked, which is why he wasn’t going to the restroom. The blood and urine analysis would be $400 to confirm, followed by a $3,000 hospitalization. We didn’t have money for either. That’s when we made this GoFundMe. She gave us an address of a low-cost clinic to try the next day for the tests.

Sunday morning, March 25- The second vet does a urine and blood analysis, along with an X-ray. She doesn’t see anything wrong with his bladder according to the X-ray, as it’s normal size. So she dismisses that problem. She does, however, find that his glucose levels are over 400. An average cat glucose level should be around 120. That’s when she diagnosed him with diabetes. That clinic doesn’t offer diabetes management so she sent us home with another clinic’s address to try the next day. 

Sunday night, March 25- I get the feeling that Reggie can’t last till the next morning. He hasn’t ate in 2 days. The GoFundMe had been raising a lot of money at this time so we decided to take him to a 24-hour emergency vet to get the process started. The vet overlooked his urine and blood analysis, and came to a conclusion. Both previous vets were right. Reggie has had diabetes for a long time but he hid his symptoms from us. His diabetes had reached a lethal stage where it starts to shut down organs. That’s why the first vet suspected a bladder issue, it was shutting down. Along with his kidneys and liver. She recommended emergency hospitalization or euthanasia. With all the money raised, of course we had to put it towards saving him. He stayed there overnight. 

Monday, March 26- Reggie didn’t make much progress overnight. His body temperature is dropping. He has hypothermia. They have a heat lamp and pad in his kennel to warm him. He still refuses to eat, so they have him on an IV for fluids. They’re giving him 2 days to make progress.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to read this, donate and share. Reggie couldn’t have made it this far without your donations. Thank you so much.

Unfortunately, Reggie didn’t make it. His body temperature fell below 95 degrees for a full day, and his organs began to shut down. He wouldn’t respond to any treatment. He refused to eat. The IV wasn’t enough for him. He was suffering. The doctor recommended euthanasia as they didn’t think he would last through the night. We just got back from the doctors where Reggie died peacefully. He was so loved. Thank you everyone. I will have a more detailed post on my Instagram @reacoa. Please refrain from asking any questions.
