This is MeiLi enjoying the smaller outdoor exercise yard we call "Shiloh's Yard", and enjoying a nap with Steve. We found during her laryngeal exam that she had sinus passages that were incredibly tiny, due to scarring from chronic disease. Her biospy showed evidence of feline herpes virus causing the sinus problems, so at this point she will stay on steroids for inflammation, cyproheptadine (an antihistamine), and chinese herbs to thin mucous and act as an antibacterial agent.

At this point, we know that she has a finite number of comfortable days remaining. She has her own room with a Hepa filter running constantly, she gets plenty of lap time (she likes Steve's the best!) and she's even decided that the dogs are okay. We take it one day at a time, and treasure each of those days!
