Hyperthyroid update

This is Chelsea's Mom with an update. While I was out earlier today a message was left on my answering machine confirming the diagnosis "however we are out of that medication right now so we will call when we are able to get it some time next week" This person has NO IDEA how lucky she is that I was out and she got my answering maching. EXCUSE ME?!?!? I will not wait to begin treatment until they get around to paying their bills so they can re-stock their medicine supply. Every day that Chelsea waits for this medicine it wreaks havoc on her organs as she loses more weight and they think I am going to wait for the medicine until they call me?? Ummmmm....NOOO....on Monday they will be getting one very ticked off phone call and somebody better get on the phone to Roadrunner Pharmacy and arrange overnight delivery of some freaking medicine. And that is only if I decide not to stay home from work and go there in person to knock some heads together. I am pretty sure I have never heard the name Amanda before so I am sure she had no idea who she was dealing with. Either that or she drew the short straw when she got stuck making that phone call because most of them know I am insane when it comes to my babies. Depending on the outcome of Monday's conversation, this may have been the straw that broke the camel's back. If they give me the wrong answer, my entire very large family of kitties will be going to a new vet.

Well, it looks like the scare of almost losing me last Sunday was just a taste of things to come. I saw the vet on Wednesday for my annual exam and because Mommy was concerned that I was losing weight. The doctor had all sort of scary thoughts so as bad as this is turning out to be Mommy was actually relieved to get the diagnosis of Hyperthyroid because that can be treated and then I can live a long and healthy life. The other possibilities were too awful to mention so we are trying to convince ourselves that this is actually good news. We are waiting for the results of a second blood test to confirm before I can begin treatment next week. Mommy is positive that she will request a referral to have radioactive iodine treatment if the doctor agrees that it is right for me. You see, I am not particularly cooperative when it comes to being handled unless it is my idea. Giving me a pill every day would be stressful for both of us and frequent blood tests would also be just too scary for me. I yowled so much and cried out for help when they did it just one time. I wiggled so much that I got a hematoma and had to wear a big purple bandage. But for right now, Mommy is feeding me kitten food to try to increase my calories and offering me anything she thinks I might be willing to eat. The treats seem to have increased too. Yay for treats!!!!


Lost Chelsea?

We had quite a scare today. Well, Mommy & Daddy had quite a scare. They were busy making homemade clam chowder when suddenly Mom realized I was missing. Daddy had been in and out of the door a couple times so when I didn't come running when she called my name, she was sure I had somehow gotten out. One, two, three, four, five.....there are supposed to be SIX. OMG!! Where is Chelsea??? They looked everywhere inside and then ran around outside looking for me. Daddy even ran up and down the street calling my name while Mommy searched the backyard shaking the treat can. By now Mommy was crying. Daddy came back inside to try looking again and for some reason Mommy got desparate and started opening all of the cabinets. POOF!! There I was calmly sitting inside the spot where the big pot belongs. Mommy held me and sobbed while Daddy got mad because all of their food was ruined. (shhhh...he was really just totally freaked out because he had thought it was his fault I got out and he knew Mommy would never forgive him) Daddy had to go to the store to buy new stuff to make the chowder but they didn't even give me any.


Not my fault this time

So now Mom fell down the deck steps too. I was not even there so it is totally NOT my fault. Nobody knows for sure what happened but she hit the stone pavers at the bottom and ripped her toe up really, really bad. (Just like when I had to go to the vet because I tore my claw out by accident) But there were some bad words and a pair of flip flops ended up in the trashcan. Mom came in the house bleeding and cried like crazy. We all tried to comfort her. Blaze even tried to head bonk the sore foot and roll on it. Then when Mommy was soaking her foot to clean it up, Blaze decided to taste the water so Mommy pushed her away, so she put her front paws in it instead. (Something's not quite right with that Blaze.....I think maybe Mom dropped her on her head when she was little or something.) But I really think Mom should let me go outside again now there is proof that these clumsy people fall down those steps even without my help.


I'm sorry Mommy!!!!!

I am so sad. I lost my "outside" priviledges last night. Mommy lets me go on the deck with her as long as I don't try to go down the stairs. I am the only kitty who wants to go out and sometimes I cry at the door so she takes me out for a visit. I like to wander around and sniff things. But last night Max (my doggy) ran by on the grass and I got so excited that I ran after him. Auntie Barbara bolted out of her chair to grab me and because of her slippery sandals, she fell down the stairs. It made a loud BOOM and scared me so I ran even further. Mommy couldn't get to me because Auntie was blocking the stairs but Max came out from behind the shed and "herded" me back toward Mommy. Phew! Saved my life because I was so scared that I didn't know which way to run. So then Mommy grabbed me and put me back in the house telling me that I was all done with outside for good. I am sorry. I didn't mean to cause trouble. I just got excited. I bet Auntie's butt is a bit sore today but I didn't mean for that to happen. Maybe if I am really good, Mommy will take me out when we don't have company.......
