Hello FurFriends!!
The doctor from the Big Hospital in Knoxville just hung up with mommie
and daddy.
They have decided that I need a blood transfusion tonight. Now this is a good
thing, so don't be worried. I am very very anemic and this should fix that.
When they check my count tomorrow, and if it stays up, then they might
let me come home. They are not sure why my blood count is so low...they
did say I had a SMALL hole in my esophagus BUT it may heal on it's own.
They said all my other test results were in the 'good' range or have not changed
so they were happy over that. The infection has gotten a little worse but tomorrow
they will decide what to do about that. The main thing is to get some good
strong blood into my little body and that will help fight the infection.
I am resting comfortably right now...I had many things done to me today
but that part is over so I can do the happy paw dance in my mind!! hehe
So, my furfriends, I will be up here in ICU tonight dreaming of all the
wonderful caring friends I have on Catster and thanking each and every
one of you for being so kind to me and sending up SO MANY prayers
to help me recover.
I could never say that enough.....
Your fighting furfriend,

Hello FurFriends.
The doctor's have
some better news than yesterday for me,
my friends...they
want me to report that I had a very restful night and that
they will do testing through
out the day (what the heck does THAT mean?? hehe) on my
neck, throat and chest area...they really don't want me
to stay in ICU tonight unless it is a 'life
and death' situation....only because (they
say) of the germs from the other sick cats
and due to the open drain I have in my neck
where the feeding tube was......
so I assume that is an invitation to more infection..
which mommie and daddy don't want me to have.
They think I have enough, thank you very much!!!
So, unless they don't think I will do well
at home from any operation they must do
today, I will be home tonight!!
We will find out late this afternoon how my situation
is, what they will find, what they will decide to do with
what they find and when my humans hear, mommie
will update my diary immediately....I promise.
Things look a little brighter today, my FurFriends...
I am still planning on a BIG BLOW OUT PARTY
for when I recover from all this ''stuff''!!!
I don't know how to THANK EVERY FURFACE
for the much needed prayers, good thoughts and MORE
Healing Rosettes....I can only say: Due to all these good
things sent my way, things look a little brighter today!!
Until later,
Your Pal,

Hello Again,
It is now around 9:30PM our time....daddy just called mommie from
the hospital...he said the doctors just finished checking me out.
They said that the swollen area under my chin is infection and not
a collection of food as first thought. Now this may not sound good but
it is good news. This probably means there is not a major problem with
my esophagus...they will stabilize me tonight and
then tomorrow another doctor will come in and decide what action to
take. Daddy told mommie he feels MUCH better after this doctor
said that I looked good and I didn't have a fever. So, I will rest comfortably
tonight and tomorrow morning we will know MUCH more about my
condition. The doctors all wanted to know what these Healing Rosette's were
hanging all over my little body!! I just laughed at them and told them
they were magic Rosettes and would make me WELL!!!!
Well, fur friends, as I sleep tonight, I want each and every one of
you to sleep well tonight too.....tomorrow will be a better day!! I promise!
Will write then,
Your Pal,
Buddie PS Still planning on my BIG BLOW OUT PARTY for when
I am everybody plan on coming, OK??????
Hello My FurFriends,
As mommie types this, daddy is rushing me to the Big Hospital
in will take about 3 1/2 hours to get there and they
are waiting for me...they will stabilize me, watch me through the
night and then operate on me in the morning. I was not feeling
good at all today and when mommie started to feed me this afternoon,
she noticed a leaking from my feeding tube, she rushed me
to our vet and they decided there is an infection, a collection of
food that has gathered under my neck from the feeding
tube and a few other things going they removed the feeding tube and lanced the swollen
area and gave me antibiotics and several other things....they told
my humans that when they do insert another tube, it will have
to go into my tummy this time since my esophagus is in trouble.
So, my friends, I would appreciate your prayers....I am wearing
ALL your Healing Rosettes to the Big Hospital so don't worry!!
With them on me, I will be fine!!
Mommie will write more when she hears from daddy.
Until later,

Hello Friends!!
I have not let mommie write about how I have been feeling
since Monday because I didn't want to worry anyone...since
Monday I have not done any crunching or munching and have
just been laying down...not moving. Mommie and daddy have
decided that it was the Vit. B shot I got Monday...I was feeling
pretty frisky before then, and then Monday night, I sort of
decided to take a down turn...BUT, I went for my Wednesday
fluids this afternoon and have not lost any weight....guess it
was due to my slaves...uhhhh....I mean my me
feedings to make up for what I have not been munching on. My
eyes look good...they have stayed round and bright so that is
good too!! My Dr. G peered deeply into them and pronounced
me 'fine'....hehhhe My kindly fluid giver, Jonathan, was very
gentle with me since he knew I was feeling under the weather.
(I also gave Dr. G and Jonathan all the messages you have asked
me to deliver!!)
So, I expect to be perking up some by tonight and
tomorrow at the, DO NOT WORRY about me....I will
rally out of this very quickly and be back to my quirky little
self before you can shake a stick at four bumblebees!!!! (hey,
give me a break..that is an old Southern saying...hehehhe)
So, my furry friends...things are good and will be back to normal
very soon!!!! Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts....hey,
I was just thinking...maybe all the Rosette's I wear to the vets helped
me weigh more....what do you think?? I vote YES!! hehehhehe
Until later,
Your Pal,

Hello FurFriends,
Today I had my weekly Monday trip to the
vets for fluids.....I was not weighed so I can't tell
you if I have gained or lost....I will get weighed
Wednesday when I make my return trip there.
I was in the care of my sweet Dr. G and I also
talked some football with Jonathan....our Titans
are not doing well so far.
I purred for everyone, let Dr. G give me a vit.
B shot (no, I did not even whimper) and then
they said I could go!!!
As we were walking out the door,
a big booming thunderstorm just
started and we were like wet little Junebugs by
the time we got home....well, mommie was...I was
snug as a bug in my dry carrier. hehehe Humans
have all the fun....hehehhe
So, my friends, the Healing Rosettes you have been
sending me that COVER my body (Dr. G has to
push them aside to give me the fluids) are WORKING!!
She thinks I look more orange and that my eyes look
good too!!!! I am happy. Mommie is happy. Daddy is
happy (but still sleeping on the floor beside my food dish).
Dr. G is happy. Jonathan is happy. I hope you are happy
too, my fur friends, because it is because of YOU that all
my family and caretakers are happy!! THANK YOU!!!
Your pal,

Hello FurFriends,
I know, I is NOT St. Patty's Day but mommie thought
it was SO sweet that the vet put a GOOD LUCK SHAMROCK on my
feeding tube bandage yesterday that she just had to share it with
If I try REAL hard, it can look VERY MANLY, right?? Well, at
least it is not a Barbie Doll decal or something girly-girly---WHEW...
I lucked up on that one, right friends!!
Well, off to lift some weights, knock back a few cold ones and ride
my Harley around the neighborhood for a little while until the little
furwoman has my grub on the plate....uh oh...Sorry, my Beautiful
Miss Hazel Lucy of Catster Fame..I am carrying this MANLY MAN
thing too far, right??? hehe
Until later my Catster Friends,
Mommie just got a picture of me on my MANLY
Harley that my Auntie Arlene (of Arlene's Angel's)
just sent to us...Thank you so much, Auntie Arlene!!!
It is picture #5......

Hello My FurryFriends!!
Today mommie and daddy took me to see my Dr. G for fluids and
to be weighed and 'looked over' is a good thing I am a little
boy and am not embarrassed by female hands always touching
me....hehe I guess I am use to it by now....anyhow, Dr. G feels
like family after all these years!!
I have lost some weight BUT she said that we will wait for a
few more days to see if my crunching and munching will make
up for the two tube feedings I was cut back on. I am trying REAL
hard to eat, my friends...I don't want to let any of you down!!
Mommie took a picture of Dr. G and told her it would be on
my page today....after 12 years of taking care of us, she needs
to have her picture on my page, don't you think?..hehehhe
Nothing has changed with my meds or my that
is good. She thought I looked much better than the last time
she saw me....guess what?? Last night I jumped up on mommie's
bed about 2:00AM and snuggled beside her leg. Now this may not
sound like much to you, but I have not done this since I have been
sick...she has a very high bed so it took some strength just to make
the jump....she was so happy. She would of told Daddy but he
is still sleeping on the floor beside my feeding bowl to see how
much I eat. Now, FurFriends, do I have THEM trained or what??
Your slightly smaller but feisty friend,

Hello My Friends,
I guess the steroid shot that my vet gave
me yesterday worked a tiny bit!!
This morning (early--very early-there is no other time of the morning)
mommie and daddy heard the sweet sound of a crunch coming from
my mouth--my very own noncrunching mouth!! hehe They had to jump
up and actually watch my mouth go up and down and they really listened
to my crunching sound!! They were so happy!! I ate about four pieces of
hard kitty food.....I know it does not sound like much, but if I can eat
3/4 of a dish of hard food, the vet said my tube can come out...well,
four pieces does not make 3/4 of a cup but it is a good start, right??
Our house is a very happy house right now. hehehe
I go today for more fluids so we will see what Dr. G has to say about
my nibbling. hehe
Your prayers are really working, my friends!!! THANK YOU!! My mouth
thanks you has missed being able to crunch...those four pieces felt
good. heheh
Your sort of eating pal,
PS I just got back from getting fluids and saw my kindly fluid giver,
Jonathan.....he told me his lab report came back yesterday and he
does not have to worry about they took his bandage
off and he is on the mend!!! YAHOO!!

Hello Friends!!
Today mommie had me at the vets at 8:15Am.....I was pretty good
and didn't growl or hiss!! Proud of me? I hope so!! hehe
They did blood work and other things.
They called for her to come get me around 5:30Pm this afternoon...on
our drive home, she told
me that she missed me so much while I was blood test didn't
show anything different, which was very good....all my numbers are holding.
YEAH!! I am not going to get my two shots tonight or in the morning either!! I am
doing the 'happy dance' over that!!!
Dr. G did give me a low dose steroid shot late this afternoon. I will go back
tomorrow afternoon for my regular fluids and to see if the steroid shot
perked me up any and made me want to eat....hummm...we will see about that.
Right now daddy is tube feeding me while my little paws dance on the
keyboard!! Friends, I can multi-task!!!!
Well, that is about all we know right now....things are holding and that is
a good report.
Your prayers are SO appreciated by me and my have NO idea!!
Until tomorrow,
Your noneating pal,
Buddie (It's been too hot outside for me to be
on the screened in deck and to be called 'pantyhosehead' right now)

Hello Friends,
Today was fluid day....I didn't see my Jonathan today but I still got
the fluids....I also had XRAYS Dr. G wants me to return
early tomorrow morning for some blood, mommie will have
me there by 8:30AM. I am not that thrilled knowing I have to make
a return trip so quickly but it seems it has to be done. I will let you know,
Friends, just as soon as we find something out.
On the way home, mommie drove me the long pretty way but she did not
sing this time....I was glad but something told me she was not.
Well, I will close for now since I will write tomorrow.....don't want to
bore you with too many diary entries.
I love you all....thank you for the prayers!!
Your friend,
