She was there! She was there! She got our messages!
I got my B12 shot. Ms. Lisa, if you are here, she says she read you site and she said that right now she is giving me as much B12 as my system can stand. She said that she is giving me the most she can, and that I am putting on weight is good.
She said she does not now recommend the endoscopy, and said to Mommy and Daddy: 'She is eating, she is drinking, peeing', pooping. She throws up sometimes, but it's under control with the fluids, periactin, cerenia, azodyl. She feels there are other 'options' including perhaps a needle biopsy (gasp) if it comes to that, but she doesnt' feel that this procedure would right now be recommended for me. She said that all things considered, I look good. She said that I have 'senior cat syndrome' and just am probably older than thought. She said that I'm tough, though, and so long as I have more good days than bad, she'll have an eye kept on me, and 'lets not push things on her right now-IBD and this type of lymposarcoma are very close-the difference of some cells is all. She said thats why it's important I eat, and if I don't like the low residue food, then I shouldn't eat it. She said that the fancy feast beef if I tolerate it is fine, and I may very possibly have developed a sensitivity to poultry...many older cats do not tolerate polultry well at all.
So that is the story. I am not having to have anything scary done.
I came home, relaxed, had something to eat and am resting.
Thank you all so much for purring for me! Thank you my Angels for looking after me.
purrs with gratitude,

Bella, I'm so glad to hear that you've gained 1/2 a pound! That is pawsome. We've read that B12 can also stimulate the appetite.
Have you ever tried Merrick's Cowboy Cookout canned food? It's beef and it's lower phosphorus, which is good for the kidneys. I really like it and had some today. I'm glad you're home and resting, it's always a lot to go in and see the vet. It sounds like you've got a good vet there.
Lots of purrs for you, sweetie!
So glad to hear your are gaining weight! How wonderful! Keep on trucking sweet girl.
That's great news, Bella! We'll keep purring, you just keep feeling better.
oh sweet heart that is so good to hear you sound like the kind of tough ole gal that I was I fought the old age syndrome and stayed strong up until my ole kidney's gave out. You keep it up sweet girl
Wonderful! Sounds like a great report. Glad you got to see Big Vet
We are thrilled to hear you got a great report and you have gained weight, that is really good news....keep on fighting and eating Bella that is important and eat what you like, it is better to eat what you like than not eat....
So glad you don't need any test done right now so just keep doing what you have been doing! We are still purring for you and we know QT is with you always.
hugs sweet Bella
Glad you've gained some weight!
Terrific news, Bella! You keep on eating, and make the humans give you exactly what you want. It's their job!

That is Super-Duper Whee-Whooping Gooderz there Bella!

Purrs and Head Bumps young lady!
Your Buddy Buddy Bud
Concats for being a diary pick with such a happy entry! Taffy and I are both glad your docfur doesn't want to do that endoscopy or the needle biopsy - that is a lot for an elder kitty to put up with, and it probably wouldn't make a lot of difference in your treatment options. If B12 shots and your other medication help you feel stronger and have a good appetite that is great! Just keep enjoying yourself - that is what olde kitties do best. Has your docfur mentioned alternate protein sources that might help your digestion? I eat a rabbit food and it is yummy. I am sending you lots of purrs!
