Hello Friends!!
Today mommie took me to get fluids from my kindly fluid giver,
Jonathan...we had some male bonding with high five 's and some
talk about football....then I had some blood work done..think he just
wanted to take my mind off the needles. hehe
My Dr. G just called mommie to give her the results of the blood test....they are
good!! My red blood count is the same (good news since it is not down) but the
good thing is that my BUN count has gone down A LOT and my creatin has gone
down A LOT too!! My Phosphates were down some too!!! I can skip a few days in
between fluids now!! YAHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dr. G was happy and mommie
was happy...when daddy gets home from work, he will be happy too!! hehehe
It is YOUR prayers for me, friends, that have done this!! YOUR PRAYERS!
How can I ever thank all of you?????? I can only say THANK YOU a million times!!
You are each precious to me........THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am going to bask in my happiness now.....hehehe
Goodbye for now,
Your noneating pal,
Buddie

 

MONDAY AND SHADES OF RICKI.....

Hello friends!!
Daddy took the day off from work Monday so mommie could go get her hair colored...now feline friends, I must ask you "Would we torture our little hairs to death to make ourselves another color? I mean, how would I look with the coloring of Ricki's pretty little furwife, Midnight?" Anyhow, mommie had a 'mommie day' yesterday.
To pay her back for not being here with me and also to keep daddy busy (not that he didn't have anything else to do..hehe), I decided I would throw up...not a little bit but A LOT...food and meds and water...anything put in my feeding tube...starting Sunday night and then all through Monday morning....mommie and daddy were on those little human phones they can talk anywhere on discussing me the whole time she was gone....oh, how I enjoyed that...found out I can still be the center of attention even when daddy gives mommie 'the day off'.
Anyway, Daddy said the dreaded "V E T" word and off we went to the vets Monday
afternoon. She looked me over, I got my regular fluids and then friends, she decided
I should start getting shots at home....now, if you remember, I use to watch Ricki
get shots all the time....I was smug, I was haughty, I was overconfident that this would never happen to me....never say never!! hehe
Last night I got my first set of shots!! Guess what, they didn't hurt like the vet said they would.....I laid real still for mommie to give them to me and THEY WORKED!!
I didn't throw up last night and I got another set of shots this morning, and I am feeling good!!! Maybe I was all wrong about Ricki and his shots!! Maybe shots are a good thing???? I should of been cheering Ricki on with his shot taking (he was such a good little boy with ALL the meds he use to take...never complaining one bit) instead of prancing around snickering at him....hehe
Anyway, it is Tuesday morning and I FEEL GOOD again....daddy even put some
of my food on his finger and I licked it off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mommie and daddy did the happy paw dance and then daddy floated off to work....guess I made his day, huh? I must make a mental note: Give them a little joy now and then.....guess they deserve it??
Ok, friends....I think I will lay down and send a prayer up to Ricki and tell him he was right and shots DO help and the vet is not all bad!! hehe Thanks my brother, I love and miss you!!
Your pal,
Buddie

 

SATURDAY....VET DAY..PLUS: SUNDAY----NOT A DAY OF REST!!

Hello Friends!!
Today, after TWELVE hours of no power due to a horrible storm, we got power
back around six this morning!! Yeah!!! I was such a brave little boy and was not
afraid the whole time.....now, sister McKenna was another story....for another day!
hehe
This afternoon I was curled up in my sunny spot and felt daddys hands picking me up....I thought "oh boy, maybe we will sit out on the screened in deck together and have some daddy/furson time"....well, friends, was I 100% wrong....in my groggy state, I saw the cat carrier out of the corner of my
sleepy eye....quickly they put me in and slammed the door shut...I could hear the 'clink clink' sound and knew there was NO escape!!
Off to the vet we went......they kept telling me that I was getting "fluids'' today...and that ''fluids'' would make me feel better...yea, right....if it makes you feel so much better, let THEM get the fluids!!
Well, anyhow, it didn't last that long and then I was safely back in my carrier to go back home.....my vet told mommie and daddy I was doing fine 'considering'....now, friends, what does that mean?? Ok, I have a few issues BUT my coloring is coming back, my fur is soft again and I have NOT LOST ANY WEIGHT!!!! 'paws doing the high five' ....so, Friends, all in all, today was a good vet day!! Mommie and daddy were happy with my vet trip and we all came back home singing and joyful in the car!!
Well, Friends, last night was a long one so I am going to turn in early...the humans get up at the crack of dawn to go to something called Church and they have to feed me first....Ahh............life is good, my furrypals...hehe
I love each and every one of my Catster Friends and say kitty prayers for all
of you too!! Some to prevent illness and others to help you get well....either way,
I know they will be answered and we all will see each other one day no matter what!!
Your noneating pantyhose pal,
Buddie PS
Friends: It is Sunday.
I had waited all morning long for my humans to return from Sunday School
and Church so they could walk in the door and admire and make over me as they do every Sunday....I should of known something was up....daddy ran up the stairs to get out of his 'Church clothes' and mommie just talked to me and petted me...very unusual....she always changes clothes before daddy..anyhow, I felt something was 'not right' so I ran behind a big pedestal (that can't be moved) they have in the dining room....daddy came to get me and I growled and hissed and growled louder..instead of being mad, they laughed and laughed...they said "That must mean Buddie is feeling better....listen to that loud growl"!!!!!
So off I went to the meet our vet on a Sunday afternoon for FLUIDS!!!!! ON SUNDAY!! Our preacher would not be pleased...this is the day of rest!! For kitties too!!!! Not to get NEEDLES and FLUIDS!!! hehe
Well, it is over and I am home and I feel good...in about 15 minutes, mommie will wrap my neck up with her pantyhose and I can lay out on the screened in deck and enjoy the PURR-FECT day we are having!! I wish a PURR-FECT day for all my
Catster friends too!!
Your growling friend,
Buddie

 

MY TRIP TO THE BIG HOSPITAL.....PLUS A PS

July 20th 2006 7:44 am

Hello Friends!!
Daddy told mommie she could stay home and rest while 'the men' would go to the Big Hospital in Knoxville...we left at 4:30AM. After many goodbye kisses from a groggy mommie, daddy and I set off on our long adventure.....I was a good little boy and watched the
car and truck lights go by (it was still dark) and then I could see beautiful trees as the sun came up....oh what a sight!!
I had new doctors and they were so kind to me...I had many many test done and they told daddy that I was the BEST patient ever!!! (this made daddy laugh inside thinking about how I react to my meds at home..hehehhe)
My kidney numbers have gotten very bad...this was a shock to everyone.....so I am going to have to get fluids everyday for a while now...they thought that would help.
On a good note, they said the massive kidney infection is now gone and I can go off
the antibiotics but they added a new med to my schedule.....
They still don't know why I can't eat...they called in a special dentist to look me over again (like last time) and they still couldn't find anything wrong with my teeth....hey, I'm still young....I want to keep my teeth...hehehe..especially with a foxyfelinewife!!!
I am going to try the new meds out, get fluids everyday now, and ,with prayers and good wishes from all of you, maybe I will start eating soon? I would like to get this feeding tube
out of my neck, friends....I try to be brave but (between you and me) it does bother me some.....but, it is not bad.
Well, I guess that is all I can tell you...we got home about eleven last night and they fed me before we fell asleep...boy, was I tired!! I didn't get a chance to sleep at all yesterday because I went from one doctor to the next, then from one test to the next, and then had lab people in all day doing 'things' to me...daddy was by my side whenever they would let him....he is such a good daddy!!! Plus, mommie was on the phone all the time and she would talk to me as much as she could...yes, friends, I DID talk back to her!! It made her laugh!! heehe
Well, I am going to catch up on my sleep that I missed yesterday.....
THANK YOU EVERY ONE FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND GOOD THOUGHTS YESTERDAY!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY FURRY LITTLE HEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your noneating pantyhosehead pal,
Buddie
PS
Just wanted you to know that I went to my regular vets this afternoon and got
fluids....I was very nice to them even tho I spent all day yesterday on a cold
hard doctors table and was tired of seeing the white coats coming at me.....hehe I still was a "Southern Gentleman" and let then stick me with that needle....yikes....but, it is over till tomorrow and we will go again!! Such fun!!
Well, Bye again......
Buddie

 

MONDAY OH MONDAY......

Hello Friends,
Well, this morning at 2:30AM and then again at 6:15AM I threw up yet once
again....mommie and daddy are trying to figure out why I only throw up in the
wee morning hours....I go to the Big Hospital this Wednesday so maybe they will
have an answer....daddy was peacefully snoring away on the floor outside the room that houses our litter boxes and crunchy food....I guess I couldn't contain myself any
longer and had to disturb his dreaming bliss.....sometimes he looks too comfortable
laying on the matts on the floor..hehe....anyhow, the moment he hears my hacking, he is up like a shot!!! (the sign of a good daddy!!) I still have not decided if I will let him sleep the whole night tonight....depends on how much he pays attention to me till then. hehe
Thank you, my friends, for being so kind to me and thinking and praying for me.
I will wear ALL my Rosettes to the Big Hospital Wednesday and tell them who each Rosette is from....I also will sneak some of the treats you have sent me on Wednesday morning before our trip (I am not suppose to eat anything after ten the night before)...hehehhe...thank you so very very much!
Your pantyhosehead noneating pal,
Buddie

 

MY WEEKLY TRIP TO THE VET.....

July 15th 2006 3:41 pm
[ View A Comments ]

Hello Friends,
I went to my regular vet today..well, I saw the new one
they have added..guess what? She has the same first name as my regular vet and she is a looker too!! She comes from the big hospital I go to in Knoxville so she is all right
in my book!! hehe
She said I looked like I was doing just fine, I got my last weekly B vit shot (boy, does
it hurt) and she weighed me too--gained four more ounces! I feel so proud
of myself, friends!!!!
She changed my neck bandage, showed mommie where the tube is inserted into my neck (daddy couldn't look) and she said it looked good with no infection.
They still have no idea why I can't eat, tho. I go on the 19th. to the big hospital in Knoxville for more testing so maybe a fresh set of eyes might see something new.
Thank you all for keeping up with me, sending encouraging emails, prayers, and
thoughts, virtual treats and Healing Rosette.....you know, my little body is almost covered with them now....the new vet was kind enough to not remove any as she examined me.
Well, until later I remain,
Your pantyhosehead noneating,
Buddie

 

Shame of the Panty Hose.....

July 13th 2006 4:58 pm
[ View A Comments ]

Hello Friends,
Today mommie had another bright idea....I always love to sit out on our
screened in porch (this is before I got sick)...so for the past two days I have been
wanting to go out there but mommie didn't feel comfortable letting me out on
my own....so today she got the bright idea of taking one of her PANTY HOSE
and cutting it to fit my feeding tube and neck....now when I want to go out, she
will wrap that around my neck so the feeding tube won't catch on
anything.....Friends, HOW HUMILIATING!!!!!!!!! I mean, me--a married furman--with PANTY HOSE wrapped around my neck!!!!!!!!EEKKKK!!!!!!!!
Well, I had to share this with you--especially the furguys---you will understand
my depths of humiliation....hehehhe
Your noneating pal,
Buddie

 

TUESDAY MEANS A NEW TASTE.....

Hello Friends,
Late yesterday afternoon mommie went to our vets to pick up my
new food...she started me on it this morning! It is a liquid and she still
puts it in my feeding tube like she did the other food.
Friends, so far so good...no barfing yet. hehe
It is time for another feeding so my mommie has to get me away from
the computer because my paws are typing 100MPH. hehe
Until later, my friends!
Your noneating pal,
Buddie

 

A SURPRISE FOR DADDY....

July 10th 2006 7:32 am
[ View A Comments ]

Hello Friends,
Yesterday, after early Church, Daddy went to visit his sisters in Indiana who were there for the week visiting the family.
Guess what kind of surprise I had planned for him around seven last night just before he was to come home?? I THREW UP AGAIN!!!! Mommie and I were having a relaxing feeding tube feeding with my meds mixed in. I was doing just fine and we finished it all up....then she watched me for about 15 minutes to make sure I was doing ok... She thought she was safe from any throw up surprises so she did a load of clothes....guess what?? I snuck into the room I like to throw up in and did a quiet
one..she didn't know about it till she passed by the room a little while later and saw it all over the carpet!!
I have to say mommie is a good mommie...she never gets mad at me for throwing up...she only gets sad for me....daddy is the same way since she always leaves my 'messes' for him to clean up....he never gets mad...he just says: "Oh Buddie, I am so sorry you threw up..I wish you could get well".....and he cleans it up for me. I guess I am lucky, friends, that they don't get mad at me and they know I can't help it.
Hopefully today my new food will come in and that might help some....it is a 'trial
and error' thing right now, tho. It is more liquid and they say might not be so hard on my tummy...it will still go into my feeding tube since I am not eating.
Well, I guess that is it for right now....unless something else goes on I will go nap now.
Thank you everyone for your continued prayers and good thoughts!!! I appreciate them very very much!!
Your noneating pal,
BUDDIE

ounces back that I had lost last week. YIPPEE!! That made mommie and daddy

They changed the bandage around my feeding tube and it looks so clean that mommie decided to take a picture of it and post it for you to see.....my new
liquid food

yesterday to our vet so we will just wait for it....all in all, I am not loosing any ground like last week!! YIPPEE!!! I am still NOT eating but I seem to feel better on the new
meds I have been taking for about four days!! YIPPEE!! So, friends, things are looking up!!! YIPPEE!!
