This morning I knew there was something up when Mom started getting dressed and talking to Dad...She mentioned the word V E T....on NO does that mean I have to go into the prison cage again and go for a ride to end up at the VET again....
I went into Mom's room and tried to make myself invisable....it didn't work, Mom saw me but she tried to act like she didn't see me....
Well off into the prison cage I went trying to make myself very small hoping no one would see me inside...didn't work, when I got to the Vet Specialist the Vampire lady came to get me, she asked Mom how I was doing, of course Mom told her I have been doing really good.
While they were preparing for the Vampire to take my blood they had an emergency come in....another kitty wasn't doing very good, they were trying to save the kitty, but it didn't work, the poor kitty went to rainbow bridge, renal failure they said whatever that is....I hid the whole time I didn't want to know another kitty was going to the bridge....me and Mommy were very sad when we left today and so were the Vet ladies working in the office, not a good way to start the day....
Well back to me, the news was my white cell count is too low for me to have my chemo today, so I am now on antibiotics for a week, then I have to go back on the 15th and try again....I was happy I didn't have to go through that and get another Ugg boot and that awful stuff in my body, but Mom wasn't happy and she is worried again...I am on the antibiotics to make sure I don't get an infection....
Doc told Mom after next weeks chemo treatment we will go 4 weeks again instead of the 3 he wanted to do and I don't have to go in after ten days to have my blood checked...he thinks 4 weeks will give my body time to get the white cell count back up to where it is suppose to be....
We came home, happy cat I am...I ran around the house, got on my chair with my bed and heating pad to settle in for a nap while Mom was gone...to wait for her to come home again and get more food. Mom is off to walk her clients doggies and go to Petco to get us more food....
I am now full with getting my little snack, laying on Mom's legs with a blanket and I will be going to sleep to let my blood get back to where it is suppose to be....
Bye from the sleeping little QT til next time....

Well Mom went and did it again, she got me into my prison cage the bigger one this time (last time the Vet Techs couldn't get me out of my smaller one). I knew something was up when we got into the car, you see I am on to her now....
The Vet Vampire come to take me to the vampire room to take more of my blood, soon I won't have any more blood it they keep this up, what gives, I need all the blood I can get, not give and give.... I am tired tonight from my ordeal today and loosing more blood.
Well my blood test came back good they are all in the middle range so it is a go for me to have my 2nd chemo treatment on April 7th...on no here we go again, the shaved leg and me getting the Ugg boot.
So far I am doing really good, not vomiting, only after I eat grass, I am eating and asking for extra through out the day when Mom is home, that puts a smile on Mom's face I am so happy to put that smile on her face. I have even been playing and running after the laser light.
I am even taking my herbs and colostrum Mom is giving me to help me fight my cancer....I am a fighter .....and I survivor.....

Oh Boy MOL this week has been a scary week for me and Mom...Monday I was sleeping so deep and dreaming of all of my special Angels they were there with me and we were having so much fun I didn't want to leave them. It was so beautiful to see my wonderful GUARDIAN ANGELS..They all told me it wasn't my time yet that I needed to go back to be with Mom, but when it is my time they all would be there with me....
I didn't mean to scare Mom and all of my family...sorry Mom.
I kept hearing strange voices calling me, I didn't know who they were so I just didn't want to answer. They were saying Tallulah wake up breath, please Tallulah wake up and breath...then I heard her voice the most wonderful sound to me MY MOM. She was here with me, she came to be with me I heard her crying and saying my sweet Tallulah please come back to me I love you, I felt her love and her petting me, then I felt my fur get wet Mom what are you doing? Then I heard Buddie my sweet Angel friend tell me it is time for me to recover and be with Mom again, so I responded and let my Mom know I was going to be OK.
Even though my eyes were all wide, my mouth open a little when she first saw me and my tongue was out too; finally I saw Mommy and my oxygen intake was better, the vital signs better and I was ready to get out. I kept moving around making the machine ring, but they all knew I would hopefully be able to breath on my own, that was going to be the test.
My Dr. came to talk to Mom, he said he wanted to make sure I could breath on my own for several hours. I am happy to say I did breath on my own and I recovered, but I am sad I scared Mom so much. I am safe at home and doing well.
My Doctor called last night to check on me to make sure I am still doing good, which I must say I am...he told Mom what we already knew that I do have cancer in my lungs and that I am a candidate for chemo treatments again. Hooray MOL
So starting on Tuesday I will be getting chemo again, not sure how many and for how long, but Doc said it will hopefully slow the cancer down and give me a little longer to live, but it was all up to me, so I have to fight and fight harder than I ever have and I am going to, you see it is not my time and I am not ready to leave my Mom...
Mom has asked me to thank everyone who has sent me gifts and well wishes she just hasn't been able to keep up with them all so if we missed anyone please know that we love you all and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping me and being here for me and Mommy...the support is wonderful and it is helping Mom.
Love you all and sending you all kitty kisses

Yesterday was a very scary day for Tallulah and Me.
Tallulah had her CT Scan yesterday, I didn't want to do it, but I knew we needed to find out how far the cancer has spread. My gut told me not to it, but I went against my feeling and she did not do well.
She was fine during her scan and all was going well, until they tried to wake her up. She was not waking up, she was having trouble breathing, her blood pressure was very low and her heart rate was up and down. When I called to check on her because I hadn't heard from them, they were trying to get her awake and stable, it was not going well for Tallulah or the imaging place. The Vet was telling me she was in bad shape and they decided to take her to her Dr. at the specialist facility...The Dr. and 2 Vet Techs took her to her specialists to make sure she was Ok and made it.
They were expecting the worse and I was driving to to be with her of course crying the whole way, not knowing what was happening to my baby or if I would ever see her alive again. I was having anxiety attacks on top of crying...I was not ready to loose my baby because of her not being able to wake up and breath.
I got to the Specialist right after Tallulah arrived, they assured me they were working on her and she was stable. The Vet Techs came out to be with me, I am still crying, and having trouble breathing too. Once they got Tallulah stable enough and she was doing better I was able to be with her. I was so afraid to see what condition she was going to be in, but when I saw her my heart stopped, but then the love and the strength to be with her came...our angels where there for Tallulah and me...She was in a incubator getting oxygen, her body wasn't absorbing enough oxygen, when I got there she was absorbing 80%, her blood pressure was still a little low and heart rate was up...They let me sit with her and I got to pet her and talk to her. her pupils were wide, her mouth open and tongue was out. It was so scary to see her this way...
Before I left my house I got the mail, in the mail came a very special package arrived from Tallulah's and our kitty families friend Dusty Miller , his Mom sent HOLY WATER from her church all the way from Texas...it couldn't have come at a better time. So I grabbed the HOLY WATER and Tallulah's SPECIAL BLANKIE....
I put the BLANKIE on Tallulah and sprinkled the HOLY WATER on Tallulah...she started doing better, I believe not only having me with my sweet baby and her hearing my voice and feel my love, but the HOLY WATER and BLANKIE helped Tallulah pull through...she eventually started moving around, peed all over herself and was trying to get up.
The Vet Tech had to check on Tallulah and clean up her & the incubator when she was doing that I ran out to my car to get my camera so I could take pictures of my Sweet Girl Tallulah....Mind you she was still not doing well, but I knew she was going to come around because of all the love and her special gifts from special kitties on Catster.
Finally Tallulah was doing better they started reducing the oxygen to see how she would do, they wanted her to be able to breathe on her own, they told me she may not be able to and then I would have to make a decision, I prayed so hard put more HOLY WATER on her and asked for all of her kitty angels to help her breathe on her own...she was doing OK with less oxygen, so they lowered it more and she still was doing good. Now she was moving around more, was sticking her head out of the hole I had my hand in to pet her, when she stuck her head out I was kissing her and kissing her...I knew she was going to pull through this because she is a fighter...
I was with her from 1 to 4:30 because they needed to get her next door to the ER so they could keep her under their watch...I didn't want to leave her, I was so afraid for her, but I knew she was in good hands and I was going to be able to bring her home later in the evening if she didn't take a turn for the worse...
Tallulah's Vet Tech that was with her and me this whole time called my around 6 to let me know my sweet Tallulah was doing really good and she was off of oxygen for about an hour and needed to stay for a while longer to make sure she was stable and doing OK. I called at 8 last night and the ER tech told me the Dr. said she could come home...Tallulah was finally coming home and I couldn't be happier, she finally arrived home at 9. She of course had to check the house out, go potty and finally ate. Her and I finally went to bed after 11 and she slept through the night.
I am happy to say Tallulah is doing good today, she is eating and doing her normal things, like sleeping on her warm heating pad in her bed...she will be sleepy all day today but she is OK and that is the most important thing.
It was a very hard day for Tallulah and Me, needless to say we are both tired today, but she is still here with me and doing good. We are still waiting for the specialist to call on the results and what is next. We are not giving up on Tallulah I will do anything for her...we do know that the cancer is in her lungs that has been confirmed...I am still very devastated, but I am keeping positive as much as I can.
Just a little while ago her Vet Dr. Kathy called to see what happened because she got the report from the ER and I had to tell her, so now she knows and will be with me & Tallulah all the way through this...Dr. Kathy is the best and I am so happy I found her not only for Tallulah but for our Zeke...
TALLULAH IS DOING WELL TODAY AND WE BOTH WANT TO THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS, SPECIAL GIFTS. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART...

Tallulah's Mom here I finally got the Vet on the phone and it is not good news, my Beautiful Tallulah's cancer has gone into her lungs she has maybe 6 months to a year. It will depend on her and how fast it spreads. She will be having a CT Scan on Monday and hopefully after that I will know more. She will be getting Chemo again too. I will do everything I can to keep her and hopefully I will know next week.
I am totally devastated and haven't been able to stop crying today, I was hoping she would continue to be a survivor...I can't believe this is happening...she looks fine, is acting fine and you would not know she is sick...
Thank you all for being here for me and my beautiful Tallulah...I will need you more than I ever thought to get through this. I will be cherishing every day I have with her, I will also be cutting down on my business when she starts getting sick...
Bless all of you and give all of your babies love and kisses because you never know when something like this will affect you...I never thought I would have to go through this...
Tallulah is a fighter and I know she wants to be here with her Mommy...

Well I called the Vet Specialist this morning to find out about Tallulah's x ray results. I am unhappy and now I am worried, the technician talked to me to tell me the radiologist wanted more of Tallulah's x rays to view. So there is no news as of right now.
I have been upset all day, I just hope and pray my Tallulah is OK. She is doing so good, eating and acting normal..once I hear I will let all of Tallulah's friends know. Continue to pray that the cancer hasn't come back onto her lungs...

My day started out good today, had my good breakfast and I was all settled in my bed with my heating pad thinking I could take my morning nap, no that wasn't in the schedule today.
Mom grabbed me and took me into the garage and then I saw the little prison she puts me in and closes the door. Now I do know what this means I am going for a ride and ending at the dreaded place the Vet Specialist. She makes sure I have my special trankie blankie with me, my special pink blankie with special powers before we leave, you see I don't go anywhere without my blankie and my medal to protect me.
Of course all of the Vet Techs just love me and fuse all over me...Mom brought them a photo of me that she made for them, I also have it on my page (I'm a survivor) they all loved it and they took it all over the office to show all of the techs and doctors. It is now hanging up in the office proudly I might say.
My Vet Tech came to get me and take me in the back so they can get me ready for the x-ray. Soon the machine is closing in on me, they have me laying down with my chest exposed and then I hear the sound of the machine taking the funny pictures of my insides...they tell me I am a good girl and I am almost done.
My Doctor had to look at them and we have to wait. My Vet tech came out and said that the Doctor wants to send them to the radiologist to view cause the areas of concern are near my ribs and it is hard to tell. the original spot hasn't changed that is good news, but the others are the ones they are not sure about.
My Mom asks what does that mean, do they think it is cancer or not. She couldn't say one way or the other, Doctor wanted to make sure the doctor that reads x-rays all the time looks cause it was really hard to see & tell.
Mom's heart jumped and now she has a lump in her throat and she has a nervous tummy. She is very nervous she prayed and cried a little...now the waiting starts hopefully we will know in a day or two..
When we got home I was so happy to get out of my prison and let Mom know and told her I wanted some can food. So I followed her into the kitchen so I could get a little food.
Mom went over to her hutch that has her new beautiful statue of Saint Frances of Assisi and she got me, held me loved me and asked him to watch over me and keep me safe...
I also know that my Guardian Angel Buddie was with me, so I know I will be OK, now we just need it confirmed...Mom is scared and she needs to be reassured that I will be OK...
I AM A SURVIVOR AND A FIGHTER

Hooray Horray I have good news from my Specialist I am still doing good.
I was not happy being put into that carrier and having to go for a ride, I knew I was going to go where they would poke me and take my blood....I cried a few times on our way to the vet....not very happy having to go.
They took my blood to run all kinds of tests to make sure there were no signs of cancer...Mom waited on pins and needles...I wonder if she was hurting sitting on pins and needles...I wouldn't want to sit on pins and needles, they were sticking me with a needle....
Oh my they also took funny pictures of my lungs to see if they were still clear...they saw the same spot as before and another one now too, also a spot near my heart.....Mom's heart skipped a beat when my Vet told her...he said he doesn't think they are anything of concern, but he wants me to come back in the end of February for a full chest Xray to check on them to make sure they haven't grown or there are no more spots....Mom is still worried, but she is thinking positive thoughts cause my blood work came back good.
So for now I am doing good and Mom is happy for the good report, there is so much sad news on Catster we need good news and happy news
Happy Mom and QT
