Dr. Koble's office called Monday to follow up on Digit's eye. It's certainly better than Tuesday when Chris took her to The Cat Doctor, but she's still winking and is clearly still irritated. (Chris has taken to calling her Babe-raham Winkin'. Nice.) We picked up new medicine {Erythromycin ointment} for her yesterday and are administering it 3x/day.

Speaking of phone calls from the doctor's office, Chris heard from Valerie late last week. Apparently, upon further examination of his labs, Chris is leeching Calcium. I think it may just be that he's no longer drinking 3 gallons of milk per week. But Valerie thinks he needs a prescription-strength calcium supplement. So yesterday we picked up Calcitriol 0.25 mcg capsules which he'll take every other day. Hopefully this will help.

I did call the cardiologist today for the echo appointment. The receptionist saw Chris' chart but it didn't say he needed an echo.... just a doctor visit. So she'll call me back and we'll figure that out too.

Edited to Add: Glad I asked her to check because he DOES need the echo. That's scheduled for Tuesday, April 21st at 9am with a follow-up with Dr. U at 10am. [I seriously wonder what happens with patients who don't have someone keeping track of everything like this.]
