    @Gagingi - you're certainly not out yet. Big numbers don't mean much - I am the poster girl for that. Your 4 could all be good quality.

    My theory on the follicles is that every cycle a different batch is recruited so just because some were empty this time doesn't mean the next batch recruited would be.

    Ok..Home Doctor has been and gone and reckons DD's vomiting is due to her chest congestion which looks to be pointing towards bronchitis.

    He gave her some Prednisone Liquid (can you believe it?? Just when I thought I'd never see that sh!t again!!) to "open up her chest and help her breathe" which will last for 24 hours and I'm to get some Phernergan and give her 2 doses of that in the next 24 hours until we can get to the GP tomorrow afternoon.

    Am off to Chemist Wharehouse shortly to get it and some Hydralyte and baby crackers for her as he also said just toast and crackers etc if she's hungry but not to worry if she's not. Just make sure she stays hydrated. Small amounts of fluids at a time. She slept for over 2 hrs on the lounge next to me and is currently in her high chair eating a cracker.

    Methinks it's going to be a looooong day so I best go and get on with it. Hope you all have a beautiful V-Day!!!

    @Maxwellsmum our girl has overactive thyroid (hungry/skinny/weird behaviour), an autoimmune condition where she doesn't absorb nutrients from many foods (hungry/skinny/overgrooming), plus 3rd stage renal failure. Untreated she looks a mess. She is on thyroid meds and pred to treat autoimmune disease and with the meds, for all her issues is doing/looking pretty well - gained weight and good quality of life. Pred also helps asthma, arthritis, and appetite (as we all know). Our vet has told us he'll let us know when it is time, but not to count her out any time soon (17.5 now). We adore her and wouldn't let her suffer. Vet expects she'll get cancer at some point and that will be her downfall.

    I've heard they do say goodbye though and take themselves off, but as you said he has come back and older cats can get more relaxed/affectionate/sookie too? I know it's expensive, but even if vet says the worst, hopefully you can take him home if he isn't suffering too much? We have thought our girl was done for a few times - once at 16 and then 17.

    @Gagingi Hm, well I remember the cycle because my follicles looked amazing. I had about 18 really ripe ones all clustered together so I was hoping for 10 or 11 eggs and I got 5. I don't think my cycles took a nose dive after, one ovary seemed to work better than the other after that but numbers were still good (7 to 9 eggs) but they were tapering off. That was my worst cycle, only had a morula by day 5. I had 3 or 4 after that that were better.

    @BlondeinBrisvegas glad the doctor came relatively quickly. I hope you both have a better day that expected!

    Four is still a good start hon! My best cycle I only got two to fertilise (out of 3 retrieved) so I reckon your 4 will put you in with a good chance

    As long as he seems comfortable love, that's the main thing. The vets here will do house calls if our animals are sick. If he goes downhill and looks to be suffering perhaps someone could see him at home? Hugs for you, it's hard I know. They are members of your family, not just 'animals.'

    @BlondeinBrisvegas - the hydralyte icy poles are good, they sell them at the chemist as well.
