Day 2 in the hospital: Just wanted to let you all know mommy just got home from seeing grampy and he’s doing great!! His blood pressure and heart rate are stabilized, his swelling is starting to go down a lot. He ate a full breakfast and a full lunch. He sat up in the chair this morning for 3 hours while they changed his bed and then gave him a bath. He’s going to be there the entire weekend, maybe even through Monday. This is congestive heart failure, it’s nothing to mess around with. So they are controlling it with the Lasix and finding the right combination of meds. They are also going to start him on physical therapy to get his strength back up, so we are really happy about that. We're all so happy to see him like this! Your prayers and purrs are working! Love you all so much!!! Keep purring! XXOO
Sending major purrs to you and yours that your grampy gets better. You're so right - congestive heart failure is nothing to mess with. Stay cool, my furriend.
Thanks Bibi, you stay cool too sweetheart! Love you! XXOO
That's wunnaful news Lacey & Mom!
Your Mommy takes very good care of your family, give her some cheek rubs, & loud purrs!
I'm quite sure he is on his way to feeling stronger everyday!
This scorching high heat is not good for our elderly parents!
See this litta fella:
Blessings to you all!

Glad that they could figure the issue out...now to regulate things. PT will do your Grampy well.
Prayers continue from this end.
We have to be brief, we have bd weather, at least then it it will be cooler outside, and fresher, too. Evfurrything needed a drink,and God is providing it, just like with your Grampy.
Still sending lotsa purrs.
Kally Kat that little fan guy was cute! thanks everybody. Still doing good today. he's off his oxygen and went for a walk in the hallway with the therapist. They are gonna send a PT here to our house when grampy comes home too. He's got a bad back and he is not getting enough exercise so they want to send one over. But he did real good today! Hurray! Keep them purrs coming, they are magic!
Congrats being a diary pick today,Lacey. I am glad your Grampy is doing better. He is home now right?
We will keep purring for him :)
