Kira is doing well!

I got the call at 11 am. Kira was the first surgery of the day and he said it went well. Her bullae was full of the polyp and puss and gunk (yes, he actually said "gunk for lack of a better word") She is waking up from the anesthesia but he said to call and check on her later because there could still be complications but that it looks good right now. They are not sure yet if there is any facial paralysis. The call came while I was actually in my regular vet's exam room for Chelsea's annual exam. There was a sudden hush in the room as they all waited to hear and then I gave them the thumbs up and everybody started breathing again. I couldn't have been in a better place to have support as the call came in. And to be able to discuss what he said with her own doctor right away. Thank you for the overwhelming support from my fellow Catsters! I am sure that the power of so many kitties purring for her helped her and will continue to help as she heals. It has made me feel so good to know how much you all care about any kitty in need!

XOXO

2 more days

Well, my surgery is in 2 more days. I woke Mommy up 2 times for extra snuggles last night just to make sure she knows how much I love her. I just get right in her face and tickle her with my whiskers so she knows it's me. She said that anybody else would've gotten kicked out of the room. But for me, she wakes up and scratches my ears until I go back to sleep. Mommy is trying to think positive that everything will be ok. She is planning for how to take care of me when I come home so the brat, Blaze, won't hurt me by mistake. She's a very naughty kitten. I guess I am getting my own room for a few weeks. I will miss sleeping with Mommy, but it will be neat to have my own room and not have to share my litterbox or food or water with anybody!! But I have to stay at the hospital for 3 days so I will just be happy to come home on Saturday no matter what room I get to stay in. Mommy will update my diary for me on Wednesday night. Hopefully with good news. Keep your paws crossed for me and keep me in your prayers.

 

More scary news

Mommy is crying and I don't know why so I am sitting on her lap and purring, trying to figure it out. Maybe I will let her tell you about it.

Kira's doctor just called me with the results of all the tests. The inner ear (bullae) is "mis-shapen" "thickened" and "expanding" and the surgery has to be done as soon as possible. They have scheduled it for next Wednesday 1/28 and I am so scared for my baby. The surgery is likely to cause permanent facial paralysis so my beautiful baby will never look the same. Her right eye and the right side of her face may droop. I told him that I don't care as long as he can give her back to me ALIVE and healthy. It will cost $1600 but I expected that when I chose this doctor. They are the best in CT. I don't care about the money and the fact that I can't really afford it as long as she comes out ok. She will stay for at least 3 nights and those will be the worst nights of my life. Kira's Daddy is taking the day off as well to go with me to drop her off. Mommy can't handle this one alone.

 

Kira's doctor visit

Well, I had the scope up my nose on Tuesday. They were very nice at the new doctor's office but it was scary because Mommy had to leave me there all day and I was awake most of the time until the tests. So I had a lot of time to miss my Mom and wonder why she left me. It seemed like forever! But when she came back I was very happy to see her so she drove home with one hand in my carrier giving me love and I purred for her. The doctor says that there was nothing he could see on the rhinoscope so he did xrays too (Mommy said it cost LOTS of money but I am worth it) They think they found a polyp in my inner ear but we have to wait for the radiology guy to look at it. Then we have to decide if the scary surgery (bulla osteotomy) is the right thing to do to make me all better. Mommy says that if she could just leave it alone she would not want them to hurt me, but if it makes me feel bad all the time and I can't smell my food at all anymore, then we have to do it. Mommy is really scared. I'm the sweet baby girl and she can't risk losing me.

 

My stuffy nose

I could breathe really good for about a month but then suddenly last week, my polyp in my nose grew back. Now I snort and I have so much trouble breathing. Mommy is so sad because she hates to see me like this since I am such a good baby. But it's kind of fun because she feels so bad that she won't yell at me no matter what I do. So I can beat up on Blaze (I love to bite her until she screams for help. MOL)and even walk across Mom's laptop while she's working. Stick my paw in her coffee and even stick my head in the sink while she's trying to brush her teeth. She drew the line at letting me remove the spacebar from the laptop keyboard though. I guess I can see her point since that one belongs to her work and they probably wouldn't think it was so funny. But me being sick is really working out for everybody. Mom wants to make sure I eat enough so we are getting a can of wet food every morning instead of just our dry. But next week I have to go have a scope stuck up my nose and then maybe have surgery again and this time it's a scary big surgery with a special doctor. Mommy doesn't care how much she has to spend to get me the best doctor 'cause she loves me. But if she could just leave the polyps in my nose, she wouldn't let anybody cut me up because she's really really scared.

Ok, so the new kitten is not so bad after all

Don't tell Mom, but I am really starting to like the little brat. We play and play and she never gets tired of silly games the way my big sisters do. I can smack her and she just comes right back for more. And I am teaching her to get into all the fun kinds of trouble that I like to cause. The only thing that is really wierd is that she likes to take naps with the dog. We have a really nice cat tree to climb up on for a nap or if that's taken, the sofa is always a good place. But not her, she just keeps snuggling up to that big smelly dog. I didn't think I was too happy about not being the baby anymore, but it seems like Mommy loves the rest of us just as much as before Blaze came. I still get to snuggle in Mommy's bed with her and Bailey still gets to sit on Mommy's lap while she works at the computer. If Allie of Chelsea comes along, they get a turn too. I guess there is enough love here for one more.

 

No new baby sister. NO NO NO!!!

I am very very mad at my Mommy. On Tuesday this awful little baby kitten came to live with us and now I am not the baby sister anymore. She thinks she's SO cute with that chocolate brown fur and the orange stripe up the middle of her nose. She keep following us all around trying to be like us and trying to play with us. The others may have fallen for it, but not me. I hisssssssss and I GRRRRowl!! Blaze doesn't seem to care. She just keeps right on playing like I didn't make a sound. It's making my mommy very sad though because she doesn't like to see any of us so unhappy. Especially me. I just got done being sick and Mommy wouldn't have brought the baby home so soon if she knew it would be so hard on me. Yesterday I even smacked my Mommy right in the face with my claws because she tried to cuddle me when I was mad. Mommy didn't even yell at me. She just got really sad and let me go.

 

A tree for me?!?!

Cool!! Momma put a tree inside the house! It's in the dining room and it's pretty and green and very tall. I love to chew the branches and try to climb to the very top. Mommy said she knew that a Christmas Tree was a bad idea with a monster like me around but she has to have one for the first year in our new house. She says it's not a real tree but it sure is fun!! I saw a box of little balls she plans to hang on it too. I can't wait to knock those suckers all over the house. Momma must really love me to give me such a neat new place to play. My three sisters are lazy. All they do is lay underneath it. I can't wait until later this week when my new baby sister comes to live with us. I hope she will climb the tree with me. I am going to show her all the cool ways to get into trouble around here. Such great places to hide that Mommy never finds. I love to wait until she gets really worried when she's calling me and then when she's not looking, I pop out of nowhere. "Oh, were you looking for me? Here I am!" I'm going to teach my baby sister all of the fun stuff!!

 

No more worries for Mommy

I guess I really did have a polyp in my nose. Mommy even took me to get a second opinion because she didn't want me to have surgery but there was no other explanation for my snorts. So yesterday I went to the hospital to get spayed and Dr. Hulse pulled a nasty polyp out of my nose. Now I can breathe right through my nose like a regular kitty!! But it also made my eye look all funny from the surgery. It's called Horner's Syndrome and it made the nerve in my face weak. Mommy says I look like I am winking at her. But the doctor said it should go away in a few weeks. I sure hope so because it makes Mommy sad. Yesterday I played like crazy when I got home. Mommy even took my toys away because I didn't know enough to lie down and rest. I was chasing the same crazy loop for 4 hours. Well, today the drugs wore off and now I see what she was talking about. All I want to do is sleep. But I am hungry and cuddly too so Mommy isn't scared anymore. I'll be back to normal in no time!
