Surgery Day

April 5th 2011 2:32 pm

Well, I got fixed today. Big old ouchy on my belly, but I have nice pain medicine. Dr. Lisa also made sure all the bone fragments are out of my left leg. And the absolute answers is: I am going to be a four legged kitty forever!!! I would have danced, except my tummy hurts. In two weeks I go back to have the stitches taken out of my belly and my leg and then I can be a free cat. I am just counting the minutes! Mom is gonna make a video of me running the day I get released.

 

3 Month Anniversary

Wow, yesterday was 3 months since I came to my home! Mom did not think it was going to take this long to get me healthy, but that's okay. Yesterday I celebrated the day by managing to get past mom out the door of my room and down the basement stairs before anyone could catch me. For a kitty who isn't supposed to walk, I can be pretty quick. Ashamed to say I kept mom and the family looking for me the three hours. Finally, Mom did a sneaky thing. She sent Suzanne and my adopted mama kitty, Lucy, down into the basement. Sure enough, Lucy, acting as my kitty-mama came and found me right away. I was happy to see her and came out to play. She led me right out into the open where Suzanne was waiting and snatched me up. I was pretty hungry and tired by then anyway. Don't think mom thought it was a lot of fun, but I sure did. Today mom and I have spent just sitting on the couch watching a movie and sleeping.

 

Mother Nature Doing Her Thing

well that little bone piece in my leg has decided not to wait for Dr. Lisa. It is sequestering it's way out all by itself. There is a little spot that is open now on my left leg. Dr. Lisa told mom not to worry that I will work it out myself and she is right. I've been chewing at it all evening. I'll be glad when it's out.

 

Our next plan

So, mom and Dr. Lisa decided I will have my "gettin' fixed" surgery on April 5 when mom is off work for spring break week ('cept her spring break week is just two days. We cats think a week is seven days - people sure have funny weeks sometimes!). I also have a free floating piece of bone in my left leg close to the surface (you can see it in the xray above). Dr. Lisa calls this sequestering. Since I'll already be "under the knife" she is going to remove that at the same time. Yeah, I really do have four more weeks of "jail time" as Linus says. Lately I have kind of started to like the crate. Maybe mom can hang and picture or two in there, install a running water fountain, and stereo playing soft birdy sounds!

 

Sad Day

Dr. Lisa was coming to see me and look at my xrays, but that was not the way it turned out. My grandma kitty, Cookie, got sick. I don't understand these things, but I know that Dr. Lisa and mom helped her to the rainbow bridge. I hope she meets my guardian Luna there.

Hey, Mom managed to figure how to upload my xrays so you can see the first and the ones from yesterday. Not bad a a bi-ped. Maybe that's what those thumbs are for!

 

X-Ray Day!

Went up to the equine hospital to get my x-rays today. I really don't like my carrier - it seems to take me to so many scary places! But, it only took a few minutes and now I am back at home. Dr. Lisa hasn't seen the x-rays yet. The ulna bone in both of my front legs is nearly healed! This is really great. The radius bone in my right is almost healed, there is just a very small gap between both ends - looks kind of like an extra jont. But the radius on my left is still pretty bad off. Guess that is why I limp on my left still. So, after Dr. Lisa sees the x-rays and talks to the specialist in Louisville, we will know what happens next. I wish I could show pictures of the first x-rays and these - it is like a miracle how much healing there has been!

 

Uh-Oh!

Overheard Mom talking to Dr. Lisa and they are discussing getting me the rest of my shots and fixed! Guess Dr. Lisa thinks I am well enough for all that scary stuff! Me thinks I should stay not too healthy a bit longer! And, Mom got some other good news. Caring Hearts from Versailles, KY, has paid part of my vet bill! If anyone wants to join me in saying thanx to Frances Hammond, send a message to her in my Mom's email and she will forward it. Mom's email: pkeeley@windstream.net

 

Splints off!

Wonderful! Wonderful! Both splints are off! Hopefully for good. Dr. Lisa says I have to stay quiet and in my crate for two more weeks while my left leg starts to get stronger and we see how it is neurologically. Very Happy!

 

Any Ideas?

This is very odd. Today when Mom came to get me from my crate, all the fur has come off the backs of my ears. They are not irritated, I am not scratching at them, just the fur has come off. Any one have any ideas?
