Oh man Mom put me in the little carrier and off we went in the car!!!!I am not happy in there cause I am not only in the carrier I am still wearing that collar, how embarrassing!!! At least I have my pretty pink collar on with my very special medal to keep me safe...
Well the Vet tech has to weigh me I did loose just a little weight, Mom worries about that cause I don't weigh much to begin with. Then the dreaded temp up the you know what is done, that is fine, not running a fever....
Now the Vet comes in to check my stitches and good news, they are out even in the area that Mom wasn't sure of, they said it was just in the fold of my belly whenI sit. So I only have to wear the collar for a couple more days and then I am done with it and I will be out of the my bathroom prison....I have to wear it just to make sure all of the scabs are heal up. I have my collar off now and I am washing my whole body boy does that feel good to be able to get all of the hospital stuff off of me. So I am happy happy not to have my collar after 2 more days....
Now for the other news, I will be having chemo starting on thursday, Mom is very worried, but we don't have a choice we have to do this. They did see a very small spot on my lung that they will be watching to see if it gets smaller if it does that means the cancer is in my lungs, if it doesn't it isn't cancer.
The Vet says my prognoses is good and I should do well with the chemo...but every cat reacts differently so we will see how I do.
They may have to sedate me to give me the chemo cause they have to make sure it doesn't get on my skin if it does, it will be bad for me, they said the skin dies and it may not heal from the sore, so I have to be really good and not move. More needles and blood vampire coming to check my blood....on thursday...
The Vet also said it was Ok for my Mom to get supplements from the Vet we are going to go see tomorrow to help me through my chemo, Mom and the Vet agree anything to help me will be good.
Well I need to go I have to finish washing my face, boy it feels so good to be clean again after waiting 2 weeks to get cleaned up.
Love you all and thanks for all of your concern, prayers and presents...

Well my friends, Mom did it she took me this morning in my new small carrier to the Vet to have the blood vampire get more blood from me to see if my white blood count was up and it was, so Mom had to leave me there in that awful place and in another prison room. They shaved my other front paw, why couldn't they just use my paw that was already shaved. So now I have two bare legs. The vampire lady came and got me out of my hiding place in my prison and they put more needles in my arm and soon I was asleep so they could put the nasty stuff in me. When I woke up it was done and they put me back into my prison and I went right into my very own little carrier, I did have my trankie blankie with me but I had an accident in it before they got me settled, so Mom had to wash it, I need it to help me sleep...I had my medal on Mom told them not to take it off because it was blessed and it was helping me to stay safe and get well....
I heard them talking to Mommy and told her I did good and I was still a little groggie, but doing fine. Finally Mom came and got me, but we didn't go home right away she had to go take care of a little doggie and a kitty smaller than me before she brought me home.
I actually ate some dry food and a little tuna with my special herb supplements and colostrum that will boost my immune system while I am going through chemo.
They told Mom to make sure she keeps an eye on me to make sure I am doing OK, I am eating: I could get sick and more within 5 to 7 days...
Well I am home now I won't have to see the vet hopefully until the next chemo treatment on the 27th...I am going to go sleep now I am tired...Bye my friends I will let you know how I am doing tomorrow, Oh I have been able to sleep on my Mommy the last 2 nights and it was the best sleep I have had in a long time, just love my Mom and getting to sleep with her...there is nothing better!!!
Love and purrs to all of you

We want to thank my friends and their Moms for all of the support, love and careing while I had my surgery and recovery. A special thanks for my special friend Tyler Boombastic and his Mom for sending me my blankie & fir his Mom helping me Mom while I was getting ready to have my surgery and after all the while she was dealing with Tyler being very sick and having surgery too, you are a very special Mom -we just found out that he is now an Angel and we are so sad to have lost a very special kitty friend....we love you Tyler....and to Sky and Mom for my special personal towel with my Name on it and Dusty Miller & Mom for my blessed medal...

Well Mom had me get up early this morning I was not happy I wanted to stay in bed...I am pretty tired lately......MOL Mom leave me be to sleep would you.
Mom was being sneaky she put something in my food and I smell my food first and there was no way I was going to eat this morning, scared Mom she thought I was refusing to eat and that is one of the side affects, but Mom knows I won't eat when she puts strange things in my food, it was only my herbal supplements that will help my immune system. So I got the yummy chicken baby food and no surprises in my babyfood....
I do sleep allot more, I am only up for a short time and then I go find a place to sleep. I sleep while Mom is gone, she came home and I was hungry again so she gave me can food with no surprises this time, I ate it all made Mom so happy.
Mom decided to call my new Vet this morning cause I refuse to eat my food with the supplements in them. Mom is so happy with my new vet because she believes in the same things as my Mom, she loves me and loves working with Cats....Mom talked to her and my Vet said she would be talking to the holistic vet to see what they could find that is liquid form of my supplements and goes with colostrum...she called this evening to tell Mom they found a liquid form for me and Mom will have to go pick it up tomorrow morning and take the powder back for a credit...
I have been running around a little and this evening I took Mom by surprise I jumped to the floor from the top on a chair....Mom was concerned but I assured her I was fine....so you see my friends I am doing well my special angels on catster are helping me through this all along with all of my special cat friends too...Mom and I wouldn't know what to do without all of you....well I am getting sleepy again so I gotta go find a nice warm place to sleep.

Oh my I did have to go to the dreaded Vet again today. As soon as I got up and Mom didn't feed me again I knew something was up, then she put me in the carrier & into the car...As soon as we walked into the Specialist Vet office I knew the place from the smell...very familiar it was, I new this day wasn't going to be a fun day for me.
All of the vet tech ladies heard I was there for my treatment they all came out to see me and ask my Mom how I was doing, Mom was happy to tell them that I had done great after my 1st chemo treatment. They all called me the princess and all love me, I know that makes Mom feel good cause she knows I am being treated with loving care.
The blood lady came she shaved my paw again and stuck the needle in me took blood, as I sat there I was wondering how Mom was handling the wait. My blood test came back good and it was a go for my chemo treatment, another round of poison going in my body. It really worries my Mom and I try to tell her I will be fine.
So I have to stay and wait for the other needle to come to make me go into dreamy land for a little while, when I was in dream land I saw all of my families furangels & catster angel friends, Buddie was there holding my hand, Tyler was there too holding my other paw carefullly cause that had the needle in it but he was so gentle....They were all there purring and whispering prayers into my ears..telling me I was going to be Ok. They made me feel safe and loved. Then I had to say bye to them for now...thank you my angels for being there today with me. My medal from Dusty was with me the whole time too and Mom believes my blessed medal is helping me too.
Before I knew it I was done and back into my cage where my safety carrier was waiting for me.
Oh my I almost forgot they did an xray of my lungs and chest today too. They said no change and they are still keeping an eye on me to make sure there is no cancer in my lungs, there was an area that the Vet isn't sure about so we have to pray I will be fine...
My Vet went to talk to Mom while I was still tryng to wake up more, he told Mom I was doing good and my prognoses is still good and he is happy I maintained my weight, I didn't have any side affects and I am eating...yah I get Mom to feed me my can food with my supplements in it 3 or 4 times a day cause I only nibble at food and Mom wants me to eat whenever I want food.
The girls came out to say bye to me and wish me well until they see me at my next treatment.
Mom was off today so she coould be with me while I was getting my chemo, she was happy to be there for me even if she couldn't be in the room while I was getting my treatment.
I finally got to get out of there I just wanted to go home, get something to eat and sleep. Mom let me out of my carrier and off I went to see and check out the house thinking that maybe things changed but they hadn't changed at all it was exactly like we left it. Mom gave me my can food with my supplements in them, boy it tasted good I ate it all and Mom was so happy she was smiling and telling me I was a good girl. Of course I am I thought what else would I be! I washed my face and climbed into one of my beds with my trankie blankie and slept most of the afternoon...
So today was an eventful day, a good day for we got good news and I am home with my Mom and family. Now I have to rest and have a good nights sleep on my Mom the best medicine of all!!! Nite to you all and bless each of you, we are all purring & praying for all of the other kitties that are sick...Tallulah

Oh Oh here we go again, I didn't get to eat this morning so I know something is going down...I hide in my bed on the chair hoping Mom doesn't see me, didn't work. She came over grabbed me and out into the garage and into my carrier which by the way had my pink trankie blankie in it for me...so comforting it is.....now I am going into the car...I know I am in for it and off we go.
Mom took me in to that place that I know has the lady vampires waiting for me to take more blood...here they come, no no don't shave my leg again, why do you keep doing that just when my hair is growing back in again... they are putting me in a larger cage, but I also have my carrier in there with my comfy trankie blankie, oh so happy to be laying on my blankie with special healing powers....
They have to go tell Mom who is waiting for me that I will be getting my chemo treamtnet today....Mom waits patiently out front for me and also in her car going through all of her catster stuff....she is praying too that I will be OK....of course I will be OK I am an old pro at getting this treatment and after all I am the Queen....
Vet techs keep talking to me telling me I am being so good and I am such a beautiful queen....I am still wearing my pink collar with my medal that was blessed just for me, Mom reminded them not to take my collar off she wants my medal with me at all times.
Now they come get me again, I try to look mean but they know I am a little sweetie so that doesn't work, darn I was hoping they would not get me and put another needle in me...
I went to sleep again and saw all of my special angel friends today: Tyler, Buddie, Belle just to name a few besides my Mommies special angel pets Sidney, Dartie, Bobby-Lynn, Chunk, Star and Bo...you all were there holding my paw and praying, such beautiful angels and all of you with your wings, I felt safe loved and new I was in good hands, I am going to be OK. My angels thank you for being there with me today keeping me safe....
Oh I am being awakened, no not now I want to spend more time with my angels they make me feel so wonderful, happy and safe...don't go no don't go, but they are gone and I am opening my eyes and the ladies are calling my name, telling me it is OK, of course it is OK, but you made my dreams stop....they tell my Mom is waiting for me so I need to wake up and get ready to go home...Home on boy I finally get to go home...
They had a lot of dogs in there today and they were barking so it will be nice to get out of here.
Hooray I see Mom and she has a happy smile on her face as I have a happy smile on mine too, we are back together again and we can finally go home....
They told Mom I was a good girl and I am doing good, maintained my weight again, Mom sure was happy to hear that she was worried that I might have lost some weight cause I didn't want to eat my can food with my immuno in it, she gives it to me by mouth now, so I will get my food...
I am finally home now and I must say I am so happy to be able to get up walk around, get some food since Mom wouldn't let me eat this morning and finally I am laying on my bed with my blankie to heal some more and to get some dreams in....nite nite my friends time for me to get some Z's in before dinner....thank you friends for all of your prayers and best wishes...it is working

Hooray, Hooray I am jumping a happy jig and we are so happy my chemo is over with and my chest & lungs have no signs of cancer.....I am in recession...
My Specialist Vet talked to Mom while I was waiting to get my Chemo today, he told Mom that I my lungs and chest are free of cancer with no signs of that nasty cancer anywhere....dancing the jig again....Mom smiles and cries because the chemo worked I am OK and Mom will have me around for more years to come...
On my way home Mom got scared I was drooling, she guesses I was getting sick from my treatment and motion of the car wasn't helping...I ran out of my crate and was circling around the house, Mom doesn't know what to think. She lets me settle down, gave me my can food and you know I did eat so I made Mom happy again.
MOM GAVE ME LOTS OF KISSES AND HUGS!!!!!!
Tallulah's Mom here I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL OF OUR CATSTER FRIENDS AND THEIR MOM'S FOR HELPING ME AND MY TALLULAH THROUGH THIS DIFFICULT TIME...I NOW KNOW WHY I JOINED CATSTER LITTLE DID I KNOW THAT I WOULD NEED ALL OF YOU TO GET ME THROUGH TALLULAH'S SURGERY AND CHEMO TREATMENTS. THERE ARE NO WORDS I CAN EXPRESS HOW I FEEL RIGHT NOW AND HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE ALL OF YOU. A BIG THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.
Love, purrs and best wishes to all of you!!!!
