Last week Meowmy discovered lumps on my belly right side, she called my Vet to see if she could get me in, she told me not good having lumps, I said what lumps....
Mom put me in a carrier, boy I not like carriers not good when you are put in a carrier. The Vet checked me out, even the dreaded thing up my bottom.. Vet said I needed to have fluid drawn out of all 3 lumps so I had to go home and return the next day so they could shave me around the lumps. Meowmy had to leave me and as she left she had tears in her eyes, she knew is wasn't going to be good.
Now was the hard part to wait for the result, with it being Friday we had to wait all weekend long. Monday came, the phone rang and what do you know the Vet was calling....Mom was very upset when she got off the phone and she started crying she came over to me and cried on me, I didn't know what was going on except she was getting me wet with tears.
She started making calls and cried at every call she made. Finally she was a little better and she called the specialist the Vet wanted me to go to. I had an appointment for Wednesday.
Again I was put in that carrier...not good..the last time I had to go in that Meowmy left me....she drove me to the specialist and we waited with Mom's good friend, she was there to help Meowmy as she was really having a hard time and was afraid she would loose it when the Vet talked to her....
Finally is was my turn to go in and again the stick up my bottom and got to sit on a table. Meowmy kept petting me and telling me it was Ok and she loved me...I still don't know what is going on why I am here and what are they going to do next...OhOh the Vet walked in...told Meowmy the lumps were small good news...for me....He said I needed to get my xray so off I went again with 2 ladies, not my Meowmy....
All of those machines and them making me lay on my back making me stay still, and then on my side....finally I was returned to my Meowmy.....then they brought up something on the puter it was meeeee.....
Vet came back in showing Meowmy and her friend meee on the puter. he told Meowmy it hasn't spread to my lungs....good news.....and he didn't see any signs of spreading....good news.....
So with all of that now he tells Meowmy I need surgery and I have to go out front so they can schedule it....He told Moewmy about the surgery and what he will do, he will also check my left mammary glands to make sure there are no signs of Cancer and check all over. I will get shaved and have a drainage tube for a while. Now Meowmy is really scared thinking of all that will be done to me and how bad it will be....the vet tech came back in with the cost for Meowmy to see and she too explained what was going to be done to me. Now I am getting scared.
Mewomy made the arrangements for me to have my surgery on Monday July 20th, I have to go in around 9/9:30 so they can get me ready for the dreaded surgery. I have to stay in the hospital over night and if I am doing well I get to go home on Tuesday...I am making sure I am doing good I want to go home....Meowmy take me home.....
So now we wait for Monday to come and I know Meowmy is going to be having a hard time taking me and then having to leave without me. It is going to be a long day for Meowmy and me too. I won't know what is going on, but Meowmy is tellling me I have to go to get better, what I didn't know I have to get better, I feel fine, I am eating and playing like I always do...I think Meowmy is pulling one over me, but then I have all of these special Angels coming to me telling me I am going to be fine and they are with me all the way, so maybe there is something wrong...Thank you angels you are helping me and hope you can help my Meowmy too....
Meowmy says she wants to thank all of our friends on Catster for helping both of us and sending all of your love, power of the paws and candles for me....Thanks for helping my Tallulah get through this it is turly a blessing we found catster when we did, little did we know that we would find so much love and comfort from other Meowmies...thank you from the bottom of my heart....love Tallulah and Mom

I am still at the hospital in my hotel room as my special friend calls it. I wanted to let you all know I made it through my surgery this afternoon.
Mom was not nice this morning she wouldn't feed me, I gave her what for I did. She keep telling me I couldn't eat until later. I just didn't understand why I wasn't getting my breakfast what gives?
Mom was crying and I didn't understand why, she gets so emotional. I watched as Momput one of my favorite little round beds in my carrier so I knew something was up...I am thinking this isn't good another trip in the car to a bad smelling place.
I am having a hard time thinking I am still having weird things going on in my head.
Mom took me in to that building again and told the lady I was here for my surgery, surgery what is that! My had to sign papers and pay, then the lady came around to get me from Mom, I didn't know what was going , here we go again Mom is crying and takes me out of my carrier gives me lots of kisses and hugs, tells me she loves me and she will be with me even if she isn't here and more tears and getting me wet. Then mom puts me back in my carrier and she turns around tells me I will see you tomorrow.What tomorrow what gives, why tomorrow, Mommy I want to go with you wait don't leave without me...
Now I am getting scared my Mommy is leaving me and I don't know what is going on...the nice lady takes me back to my room and tries to make me comfortable.
They came and shaved my paw why are they doing that Mommie i don't what to have no hair on my paw. Now they are sticking me with something,
They told me that Mommie called to see how I was doing and they told her I was fine, a little stressed and I am doing good, the perfect little patient.
All of a sudden they come to get me and that is the last I remember and now I am feeling funny and having weird things going on in my head---I saw my sisfurs and brofur that are no longer here, I saw my catster angel friends and even Buddie was there holding my paw and telling they were all there to help me and keep me safe.
I am back in my room now resting and sleeping so I will say good night I need the rest, oh my I forgot like Tyler I have a naked belly and some funny things all the way down my belly...I am going to have to talk to Mom to see why I have these silver things in my bellly.
Tallulah's Mom here, she did fine, the Vet Specialist said the lumps were very tiny and there were no signs of the cancer anywhere, they did remove her whole right side mammary glands and they were able to close well enough that they decided not to use the drainage tube, but she will have to be confined and kept quite, no jumping, running or playing for a couple of weeks.
They are sendng out the lump tissue for tests and we will get the results in a day or so, and we will go from there.
It was a very difficult and hard day for me, I had anxiety attacks and cried a lot. Once I knew my precious Tallulah was OK & came through her surgery I felt better and then the tears came knowing my baby was going to be Ok and I will get to bring her home tomorrow as long as she does good tonight, I will be calling to see how she is doing soon and again before I go to bed.
Thank you all that sent power of the paws, candles and special gifts to my Tallulah, you all have been so kind and I have felt the love and care from you all...we will keep in posted on Tallulah's home coming and recovery.....Love, purrs, hugs to you all...Tallulah and Mom

Mommy finally came to get me and take me home, hooray!!!I am outta there, mind you those ladies were nice, but there is no place like home and having Mommy pamper you.
I have to stay in the bathroom for now, I can't walk around too much, run or play. I don't like being in here it is no fun, I want out, please Mommy please...
I have been eating chicken baby food Mommy is spoon feeding me, I haven't had my regular food yet, I stick my nose up at it. I didn't rest much last night I had to wear the softy collar cause I want to lick and lick my tummy and the itching stitches there are lots of them.
Mommy has been putting warm compresses on my tummy it feels good, but don't let her know cause I hiss and grawl at her when she goes that.
Guess what? I got a special gift in the mail today from Hazel Lucy and her Mom---my very own trankie blankie and collar, it is pink just like my little round bed. Mommy had to open my present, she took pictures of me and my wonderful magical trankie blankie, she put my colllar on and laid my blankie on my bed and now I will be sleeping better. Mommy is setting in here with while I have my softy collar off so I will sleep, she can't let me have the softy collar off cause you know what I will do.
Well I gotta go and try to sleep so I can get better and get out of here, talk to you all later...

I gave my Mom a surprize today when she came to see me this morning...I was up moving around and I MOL at her....gave Mommy smiles and tears she knew I was feeling better than yesterday....
Mommy let me out and I walked around I wanted to check out all of my spots and to see if my house was still here. Of course I had Mommy right behind me to make sure I didn't do anything I am not suppose to do.
I got to go to one of my favorite spots next to Mommy's bed to lay and look out the window for a while, I actually slept there for a while getting to smell fresh air.
Mommy wanted to put me in a different cage she has so I could be out of the bathroom, but I didn't want to be in there, so I climbed up the side, yes I did climb up and I was hanging on for dear life meowing it made Mom jump up and come get me before I hurt myself, of course I had to hiss and grawl at her cause I am hurting. Mommy had to make sure I didn't pull any stitches, so now the cage is gone and I am in the bathroom again Mommy says safer no cage....
I am getting ready to sleep now so long for now...updates later

Mom told me I need to let all of my furriends know that I am doing well, been resting and sleeping the last 2 days while Mom was out taking care of 4 clients pets this weekend.
In the mornings Mom has let me out of the bathroom, I walk around the house checking everything out. Mom has to follow me around so I won't jump on the furniture or my cat tree that I love so much, I miss being about to sit on my favorite spot and watch what is going on, one day soon I will be able to get back up there. yeppeee I am out of prison bathroom....
Mommy says my incision looks better, I haven't let her see it today yet. I am now eating my wet food no more baby food even though it was yummie.
I am sleeping in my brofurs crate this afternoon, Mom said she will leave me cause I look so peaceful and really resting. when I wake up Mom says she will have to look at my incision and put a warm compress on it again.
We still haven't heard from the Vet to see if I will have to have further treatment, hopefullly we will hear this week.
Well I need to get back to sleep and rest so I can get better, I will write again to let you know how I am doing.....Tallulah XOXOXOXOXO

I am doing so well I don't want to be in my bathroom prison anymore...Mommy please let me out of there....
MOL falls on deaf ears, cause I still have to be in that prison at night and when Mom is gone during the day....I sit and cry at the door it has a small gate so I don't make a mad dash for freedom, yah right like I can run with those stitches all over my belly and this stupid funny looking thing around my neck, I would for sure step on it and take a tumble...
Mom told me today that my incision looks really good I am healing nicely, I am eating again, but not a lot still...When Mom lets me out I just walk around and around aimlessly. Then I go to the back sliding door crying to go out, I want to eat grasss, but Mom says Doc said no outside not even on the patio so I can eat grass....MOL why can't I go outside.
The first thing I am going to do when I get those stitches out is ask Mom to let me out so I can get to that grass and then I will be happy and Mom can bring me back into my house.
Well I gotta go I see my dog brofurs crate bed is free for the taking so I think I am going to go in and take a nap...talk to you all again and thanks again for checking in to see how I am doing....we will know more about the chemo on Tuesday. XOXOXO Tallulah

Oh Oh, Mom isn't happy with me!!!!
During the night on Saturday I figured out how to moved my softy collar and I was just a licking away at my incision by my back legs. It is now not looking so good and Mom said I was a bad girl cause now she thinks I won't be getting all of my stitches out tomorrow or I will have to take more medicine so I don't get an infection...and keep wearing this collar
So I am bad and now I have to wear the plastic collar, the one from the Vet is too big it came off so Mom had an old one from her other kitties, I am now wearing that and I can't have it off unless Mom is right there with me. I am not happy either....MOL I can't do anything with this collar on I guess I will learn the hard way not to lick when Mom tells me I can't
I have another Vet appointment to see a new Vet that offers supplements to help me and she has worked with cats mostly so Mom is happy...Mom is trying to find out what other options there are out there besides the awful dreaded chemo...gotta go get Mom to take the collar off so I can get a drink of water and eat talk to you later my very special friends...Tallulah
One more thing I got a special medal to protect me and keep me safe in the mail today from Dusty Miller and it has been blessed. Mom already put it on me and won't take it off cause now I have a pretty that has special powers besides my trankie blankie....Thank you Dusty Miller and Mom
