Yeah yeah you are asking what does lady Bugs have to do with chemo treatment.
Well as you know last week when I went to the Vet Specialist to see about my next treatment my white cell count was down & I couldn't have my chemo...another week and I had to go in today...all the lady bugs I got from friends wishing me well...guess what it worked, I got the OK from the Doc to have my chemo....
Mom waited 2 hours for me, they took my blood right away, but they were busy with other kitties and doggies this morning, they had to wait for the Doc to talk to Mom to let her know it was a go for my chemo and the Tech who does the chemo to be able to do mine, they have 2 that do the chemo and one is on vacation.
Today they did my chemo without sedation, they were having a hard time with my veins, especially my front paws. I was not being cooperative today, so they will have to sedate me next time...the Vet is concerned about my veins they actually had to put the chemo in my back leg today. I got all bruised from them trying to get the needle in my veins. What do they expect when they are holding me and sticking me with needles, who would be happy or cooperative!!!!
It was a lucky day, but not....I at least got my treatment today, but my leg is all sore now and we will have to see how it goes on my next visit. Let's hope and purr my veins will be a little more cooperative next chemo treatment, if not they will have to try something different, not sure what that means..
So now Mom has to watch over me and make sure I am doing OK....here's to the next 4 weeks, may I be happy, hungry and OK with all of those nasty bugs in me go away....
I am a fighter, I am the pink Queen and I will be fine....& I love my lady bugs!!!!!

My sweet friend,
The next time you have to get a chemo treatment, maybe they can give it to you in your neck. The veins are larger and easier to find. You can also pretend you are holding my paw, and I am there to take your mind off of it. I love you, QT.
Orangie kisses, Lucy
We are still purring for you that all goes well the next few weeks. You are such the little trooper and the pink Queen! Sending you the power of the paw!!

Dear Queen Tallulah,
Me and Cheetah (she has dyslexia and ADD so it is hard for her to write), we both are hoping you are feeling better today. We were sad to hear that you saw my Mom's good feline friend Phoebe at the hospital the visit prior to your last. I guess from your
diary you were aware what was happening. My mom was very sad. Mommy goes to work later now and she said she misses everything. I know my Mom thinks you are such a brave Kitty Queen. In fact, when you had your surgery Mom used to go into your cage and try to get you to eat. I could smell you on my mom when she came home. I would make a funny face cause you smell so good. I am so sorry your legs are bruised. I hope you are feeling better my Queen. Please let us know if you need anything.
I can imagine it would be awful hard to be "good" when they are trying to poke you with needles! You poor dear. Edgar and I continue to purr fur you daily.
