I'm still a pin cushion

I normally wouldn't swear so I won't,I really am a gentle wee boy. But it was awful they took more blood from me today. Are they vampires???? I'm finding it so weird they are wanting so much, almost every week, I'm sure there won't be anything left of me soon :( * D's bottom lip quivers* they took heaps last weeks too. They said they are still unsure. Last week one, was a follow up. The values are still too high, so they have sent a new lot over to a special clinic today to do a new fancy test. Something to do with Ionization or something like that. I think it's to test the parathyroid???? Any way we wait again. BTW I look good and I've put on a little more weight Yippeee, so that is a really good thing. It maybe just me getting my winter coat since I'm part Persian I have a thick coat and it's getting very cold here now. Or it's the new food the human got us. We are loving it. It's Hills C/D but its fish flavoured. But at least I'm not loosing it anymore. :) Anyway I thought I'd do a follow up as I haven't done that in awhile, I was hoping I'd have some news. BUT one really good thing I shouldn't have Lymphoma which they thought was maybe there from the Ultrasound. If I did, I wouldn't be here today so YAY!!!! for that. * BIG GRIN* I'm here to stay.


Update for those interested.

Well I'm now furless across the belly again. MOL you should see me, I'm quiet a sight.

Now the ultrasound. Hummmmmm don't want to say any bad news and nothing is definite since no biopsy have been done yet.

I'm feeling and looking great. But I do have a question for my furry friends.

Does anyone have much experience with Chemo, did it work? for how long? where there any side affects? I know a few have gone through it, and was just wandering?

It's amazing how well I'm doing, since I was on death door last year. What a change!!!!!
I look great and I absolutely love to run around the place following the human when she goes to check on the chickens then beat her home.

I'm still the lovable kitty I've always been even with all the poking and prodding I've had over the years.

You wouldn't believe it but I'm still well known at the specialist vet clinic. My previous vet there, met us at the car even carried me in so she could have a pat with me before my ultrasound.
Aren't I a special boy. :) *big grin*

My human went up the road to the local shops while she waited for me. I was fast. She had the call in a in a couple of hours that I was ready to go home.

MOL I was so good I didn't need any sedation I just lapped up all the attention. I did what I was told and they all loved me.

Still don't know exactly were we go from here. We've booked in to have another blood test in a months time. To see if there are any changes and to see if the Calcium levels have come down in my blood,If not I'll have some biopsy done as there are a few areas of concern. It's all a waiting game.

But I'm happy and loving life purrs Mr D. All is good.

Life is good and we are still enjoying a very warm Autumn here.

The human thought I should put this in my diary so we have a record of how I'm going.

I look great still licking the fur off my tummy. The human thought it was a good time to do bloods just to make sure my kidneys were still operating. She wishes there was a magic ball that we knew what to do, but like life is.... it's all trial and error. What foods to feed etc etc.

Anyway the bloods came back with something that needs more investigating. So we have moved the ultrasound up to next week. Paws crossed all is well. There are a few areas that need checking. Why is there calcium in the blood? is that why the stones are forming? There are a few things that can cause it. So they will be looked into.

But other than that I'm happy and love all the attention I'm getting. Everyone seems to love me and it's funny even after a year the specialist clinic still remember me well. MOL I must leave an everlasting impression on people.

Oh well, purrs for now I hope everyone is good. We are all good and happy here, enjoying the lovely weather.


My sister has clearly gone mad.

I only can laugh at my sister. She's mad I tell ya. Why??? tell me why???? is the grass greener on the other side of the fence?

My sister Sam seems to think she is human or wishes she is. *shakes head*

She copies what the human does.

Human likes coffee, so Sam has to finish off her morning coffee.
Didn't anyone tell her coffee is BAD for kitty's.
but nah she ain't listening.

The last straw was the other day when I noticed Sam is now coping the human in her mannerism too.

WEIRD I tell ya.

The human has a bad habit of of saying phhff, every now and then when she had enough or doesn't like something.

Well SAM is now doing that too. She will run onto the bed and say it. Or walk into a room and do it.

It is so funny to see. Someone please tell her she is cat, and cats are better than humans.

Do cats in your house do that too?

I'll post this in the forums if anyone wants to comment.

I can't be the only one with a strange sister.

Wow !!!

Sam managed to move her birthday photos up to the top of her page but for some reason I'm getting a fault were it says I maybe trying to access someone else's page.

*Shrugs shoulders* weird, The human said she'll try again later for me, so that will be good.

I see Sam and I have lot's of presents thank you so much furry friends. purrs Mr D.

The human is silly

MOL it seems to take my human awhile to figure things out.

What happened....

Raza lost her collar.

OK so the human thought no problem use the tracker to find it.
It didn't work????? dead battery???? Hoping it wasn't' the unit, but then they are quiet a few years old now.
The new battery didn't work :( after fiddling with the thing she got it to work. Yay!!!

Having forgotten who was on each button on the device she went around checking mine (Mr D) and Sams collars. No. 4 button worked and the little lights went right up where Sam was, so it must have been her collar it was receiving. But it wasn't beeping like it should be????? strange the human thought it's must a good time to buy more units they are definitely on their way out.

She kept playing with the thing for ages trying to knock the tag off the receiving board so she could add it to another board. (the tags can only be registered to one board and since that one wasn't working well she was trying to put it to another one).

Anyway Sam got really sick of the human holding the device in front of her decided enough was enough and took off.

THEN the human noticed the device was still reading the tag ????? Sam had run off???????

ARGHHHHHH the tag that the device was reading was the missing one from Raza, SHE fianlly clicked.

The missing tag was under the house right under were Sam was sitting. All that time wasted mol

But the good news is that Raza got her collar back on and all is good.

But what are the chances on Sam sitting right over the missing tag at the same time the human was looking for it.

The human needs to write which kitty has which tag.

O well that was my fun for the day Purrs Mr D.

BTW I'm still good I had gained a lot of weight back but then the human thought I'd lost a bit when she checked yesterday. She want's to weigh me now but ha good luck her catching me and getting me to sit on those scales. MOL.


Hi we are still around and looking forward to the new- platform :D

We thought we'd test out the code for posting a you tube link in our diary.

I seemed to be the kitty to cost the humans a bit of money this year I got blocked and yes I don't do things by halves.

I blocked in both and yes both ureters. Strange but they did say not unheard of. Well I just added to their not unheard ofs.

They were very happy to do the surgery as they say they don't normally come up and was very tricky so the vet students at the time would have loved seeing that one.

They managed to remove the stone from one of the lines but the other one was in stuck a tricky spot at the join to the bladder that they had to replumb the line to another area of the bladder. Amazing surgery those lines are not much more than a few hair strands wide.

When they took the catheter out I wasn't peeing so they gave me what they call a PU surgery ( tuned me into a little girl).

I have taken all that in my stride and haven't complained too much that my little friend is not there anymore.

ME at the vets in Jan 2015

I'm just trying out the two ways of posting images

Anyway I'm great now been back to the vets quiet a number of times since the surgery because the human has been paranoid to the extreme that I may have problems, but everything has been good and I keep getting a clean bill of health. She need to chill. MOL

Anyway that's all from me.

Also I want to thank everyone for those rosettes I have been getting the human hasn't been very good lately at replying to them all, and I'm really sorry about that. But we have loved hearing from you and thank you again. Purrs and whisker kisses from me.

Not sure if this will post.... or this one

This is a video of Mr D at the vet clinic last night after he had the PU surgery that morning. He's looking great but very tired. He won't stand and looks like a very old man when they carried him in to us but he is happy and should bounce back. We are so happy we still have him.

I'm sorry I have not been keeping up with his diary.
We have been receiving so many lovely gifts treats and rosettes form many furry friends. Some for purrs and others were for Christmas. We had hoped to have been able to go around and thank everyone but it's it getting so overwhelming it's going to be hard.
You all have been so lovely and supportive thank you.

The update you are after.

Many of you are aware Mr D had surgery for both his ureter (the tubes that go from the kidneys to the bladder) been blocked.

His bloods read...
BUN - 36.7 (normal range 3.6 - 10.7)
CRE 953 (normal 27 - 186
K 8.1 (normal 3.7 -5.8)

They managed to remove both blockages and his kidneys started working again. Yay!!! it sounds like the surgery was a success, His Potassium levels started to drop, and what a relief that was. When the urinary catheter was removed he strained to pee. It was later discovered that some crystals had moved down to his urethra (the tube that takes urine from the bladder to the outside)

So it's back to surgery for him :( he is now having the PU done as I type this.

He maybe thinking the vet clinic is his new home he has been there for 11 days now, and won't been home for a few more.
We see him as much as we can. At least once a day if not twice, if we can get in.

I'll post yesterdays photo of him on his page for you to see him.

Thanks again everyone for purring, thinking of him, the messages, gifts and for those that lit candles for him.

The little guy is having to endure so much, I feel so sorry for him. But he is been so good about it and taking most of it in his stride.

Thanks again and I hope to have good news soon.
