My meowmy has been gone most of the day. She left, just after giving Hooch his insulin this morning, to be with my human brofur Jim who was having a FNA (fine needle aspiration) biopsy at the hospital. He was scheduled for 8:15 AM and that is Hooch's normal time to receive his insulin. So my dad went to pick up my brofur to take him to the hospital and my meowmy stayed behind to care for Hooch. She was afraid she would miss seeing my brofur before his biopsy... but hospitals being hospitals they were running behind and she got there before they took Jim back. The doctor talked to them about the major risks involved in these procedures. Those are bleeding, infection and collapsed lung.
After his procedure, he was taken to a room but only one of my pawrents could visit him and that was my meowmy. They had some heart to heart talks. He was feeling okay after the ordeal but told my meowmy that, even though they numbed him, it felt like the doctor reached in and pinched his lung and twisted it really hard... but he said it was not unbearable.. just very uncomfortable. They checked his blood pressure every half hour and then at noon, they x-rayed his chest again to be sure that his lung had not collapsed or started to do so and then he was released AFTER they found a doctor to read the x-ray. Again... hospitals. He will go for the results on the 22nd and will find out what and IF they will be able to do anything. He has lost a lot of weight and only weighs 136 pounds now. Meowmy says he is furry gaunt looking. So, please pray for Jim.
My meowmy did not check her email yesterday and we missed a couple of very important things.
We found out that Tyler was found to have two masses which were to be removed today. Tyler needs our love and support and prayers so, please pray for good news on Tyler. You can read his diary for more news.
Our new furiend Mr. Biggles did not receive good news. He has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. We are praying that he can be kept comfortable and will have more years to enjoy his new family. Please pray for Mr. Biggles, too. He needs some major prayers.
Our furiend Tallulah got some bad news. She does have cancer and will need surgery. She will be going to a specialist on Wednesday. Please add Tallulah to your purr list.
The GOOD news is that Tony IS okay. He had a spell like Karisma after he vomited. Tony and Karisma should go to time out for scaring their meowmies half to death with their antics after throwing up. Don't you agree? BUT please know that we are so happy that Tony is okay.
My meowmy said we will all be posting the same diaries today.
