    Tony,
    Being the sufferer any Neurological condition is its self a bad enough thing, but yes the amount and Type of drugs is frightening, before breakfast this morning I had 27 tablets, in total I take as many as 82 a day currently, and 7 different meds for pain many of the different drugs have side effects, many of those taken for side effects also have different side effects, Many cause drowsiness, which in itself is a major problem, I would love the drug manufacturers to try them themselves but I think there are laws against testing on Dumb Animals LOL

    I hope you find at least some periods of relief, and I'd like to thank you for posting on the thread,

    If dying is the end then how do you know you have died
    If dying is another step on lifes path will you care when you take that step
    If you can love
    lf you can give
    Is that not more than you were born with
    Then you could just take.
    Life is an adventure we are all on all of our souls are dying it is just how we get there that differs...

    And by the way re your meds post l guess you are Rattle but who out of Wendi and your son claims the nick name Shake and Roll :)

    chin up we dont always get out wish.....
    Brian wanted to die at 107 shot by a jealous husband :))

    Night All, I'm off to cry for a few mins then bed, hopefully sleep, and a a New Day tomorrow,

    PS Dr increased my Morphine dose By 14 times today to cope with the pain, and also today just 3 steps across the room is totally shattering me, My breathing is heavy and laboured, I'm so tired of being ill,

    Hi Kevin,
    I'm sending you a gentle but really rather squishy hug because as we all know they are the best. I hope you managed some rest last night?

    Thank you to all, especially all the ladies who have posted or PMd me, please Don't worry, I am much better today, and as I've told some of you that is probably due to the much increased Morphine dose. . ... being spaced out slightly does wonders for giving the body and soul time to recover a little,

    HUGS.

    Kevin and Wendie.

    Shouldnt laugh but at some vets l have worked at we use morphine and some derivatives as pain control on dogs and cats.
    Some cats on morphine or physeptone end up pupils dilated on a trip...seem happy as Larry, never seen a scared one and every so often pat the air vaguely as if a fly was bugging them or their favourite toy was floating around .can go on for some time. I would rather a happy trippy hurt cat than one in pain. Esp at the emergency vets l was at we used to get some pretty awful cases in...Dogs dont get trippy just cats.

    But l do picture you sitting there Kev eyes wide swatting non existant flies or whatever ;-))

    hi Kevin,we buried mum at Gilrose yesterday, i had a couple of liquors and slept like a baby all night for first time in ages, don't want to talk about the funeral at present.
    Glad your a little better.
    we had a disabled cat once funnily enough it was born near you ,it was pure white and deaf and got run over on the main rd,we spent £2,000 on operations but it could never use its back legs again and we had to press its tummy to get it to pass water. I had a friend on morphine 30mgs and she gave me one to put the cat out of its misery I prayed to god and asked for forgiveness for acting as if I was god. anyway, nothing happened for 6 hours then it went daft , catching invisible mice, jumping in the air ,it was near enough laughing at me, it lived a good live ,even caught the odd mouse, for 12 years after that and taught me that God decides these things not me.

    No , not sexist, female white cats have a tendency to congenital deafness .

    his mum was a little black half grown kitten,but his dad was a full grown tom.
