Meow, meow , meow!

I have been feeling better the past few days. Meowmy had me resting in a huge dog crate since I started feeling bad. She started out with me isolated in one of the bathrooms but then my sisfur, Emily, came down with a UTI and she had a major panic attack being in the crate so she switched us. It was way more than enough room for me, a bed, my food bowl, water bowl and litter box! I'm not a complainer and don't have panic attacks like my sisfur, Emily, so it was purrfect! Earlier in the week, meowmy let me out of the crate for my "daily' stretch my legs so I didn't stiffen up too much and I acted fine. She picked me up and I just purred and purred. When she put me down, I didn't cry and was walking normal. I started playing with my ball with the treats in it and meowmy thought that she would watch me and see how it went. Well, I was fine so now I am free of the crate again and acting normal! YAY! So I am feeling better and very happy too! My meowmy is happy and is glad that it didn't take so long this time. She is just hoping that I don't have another problem like this again. But I must have a bad back. Oh well, with TLC, baby asprin & rest makes it all better! MOL

My sisfur, Emily, is better now from her UTI now. Meowmy is very worried about my rattie sisfur, Ruby. She is such a cool little kitty and one of the weirdiest looking ones that I have seen yet......she has NO fur and is very tiny! MOL I think she is a cat and like to play with her tail when she is really a pet rat!!! MOL Make sense there? MOL MOL I think every animal is another kitty no matter what size they are. *giggles* ANyway, Ruby has a cyst right under her skin that needs to be removed. It is scheduled for tomorrow (Friday) but meowmy is thinking about finding somewhere cheaper to take her for the surgery. The vet meowmy took her to wants just as much to do surgery on her that they charge for a dog or cat. MeWoW...that's a lot of money. It is always something going on here with us animals.....especially since there is so many of us. Please keep my little sisfur, Ruby, in your thoughts and prayers. She is such a cool rattie and we all love her!

Love & purrz,
Annie!

 

I'm not feeling too good!

Meow!

I should have written this diary entry last week but I am just now getting around to it. I started walking real slow again and crying when I was picked up just like I did back in December & January. It has been 4 months and I have been doing great. Meowmy was upset when I started crying and my back seemed to be hurting again. Last time, the vet decided that I had sprained my back and that rest, the baby asprin & of course, TLC would help me heal. It worked that time so meowmy isolated me from the other kitties and is hoping that helps me. I am back on my baby asprin and I have a big doggie crate to hang out in so I can rest. I am happy and still purring. I have not lost my appetite this time which is a good thing. Meowmy had to take my sisfur, Emily, into the vet on Monday and the vet mentioned something about a "fat syndrome". He said he read about it and has the same symptoms as what I'm having. It has some long medical term for it and meowmy can't remember what it was called. The vet is going to call meowmy next week and let her know more about it. He had found it in a book and had to find it again! MOL

I just hope they figure this out and that this goes away and stays away furrever!

Love & purrz,
Annie

 

Meow! Time to update my diary!

Meow!

I cannot believe that it has been several months since I updated my diary and I'm sorry that I haven't done so sooner. I noticed that I didn't even update it after my vet visit to that second doctor to get a second opinion on me. Well, here goes......

I went to see that doctor that my vet recommended me to see in case he wanted to do some heart tests on me. My heart rate always seemed to be double when I went to the vet while I was not feeling well. My vet thought that I might have hyperthyroidism or even possibly feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Anyway, this doctor that my regular vet recommended was very nice and checked me over very good. He even showed meowmy how to check my heart rate at home. He was wanting to see what the heart rate was at home vs. being at the vet. Even though I don't act anxious at the vet on the outside, he said that some kitties hide it and are extremely anxious on the inside. He checked out my back and I cried. So he did a few small things to see if I would cry again and I did. He discovered that my back had been sprained somehow. He said I probably did it jumping off of something like the couch or bed.

The doctors orders were for me to rest for three weeks isolated away from the rest of the kitties so that I don't play with them and resprain my back. I also had to continue my baby asprin during that time and for meowmy to check my heart rate at home. Meowmy was relieved and happy but so much just praying for a miracle for me.

Fast forward almost three months......
We did what the doctor said and I am happy to say that I am back to my old Annie self. I run around the house meowing to my imaginary furriend, chase my ball around the house, hang out with my humans and am so glad to be feeling better. My pawrents are so glad that it wasn't what my regular vet had thought I had. I even have a new toy that meowmy had that she brought out for me to play with. Oh, it is soooooo pawsome. It is a kitty dome that shoots balls out at different times. It makes a ringing noise and whenever I hear it or even where ever I hear it....I coming running towards it. It's great that it has balls in it to play with but the even better part is that there is treats inside!!!!! I roll the ball all over the floor chasing the treats as they come out! YAY! I am back to my normal Annie self! Thank you all for all the purrayers, rosettes and purresents. I'm sorry I didn't get to update my diary sooner.

Love & lots of purrz,
Annie!

 

Please keep me in your purrayers!

Meow!

This weekend was a fairly good weekend for me. I didn't cry or act like I was in pain. I did pretty good! I still wasn't feeling 100% because I didn't come out of the bathroom. I just layed in my bed by the heat register. The door was open and I could come and go but I spent most of the time in my bed. I am eating and drinking like normal. Meowmy knows that I probably won't stay this way for long.

I am going to the vet again tomorrow. It is to see the vet that my regular doctor consulted with. He wants to see me and check me out. They are working together to get me to feeling better. I don't know what all they are going to be doing but I just hope they figure out what is going on! I want to feel good again!

Tomorrow the thyroid test that we have been waiting for are going to be in. Hopefully, that test shows something. That way I won't have to go through too many more tests. Even though I am pretty mellow and will let the doctors do whatever they have to do!

Please keep purring and purraying for me and hope we get some good mews tomorrow! Keeping my toes all crossed!

Love & purrz,
Annie!

 

I went to the vet again!

Meow!

I ended up going back to the vet this afternoon. They called meowmy and wanted them to bring me in again. Dr. Smith checked me out again and took my temperature. Everything seems normal except my heart rate which was at 240 bpm still. I was a good girl while I was at the vet and didn't even cry at the vet. Meowmy was hoping that I would cry when he checked me out because then he could see where I was hurting. Nope, I just sat there on the table and purred. But then I purr at EVERYTHING all the time! MOL

Dr. Smith told meowmy that one of my thyroid tests still hadn't come back and they said it wouldn't be until 6pm tomorrow night which is Friday. We won't know about the results until Monday since the vet is closed on Saturday.He is going to consult with the vet that he has been talking with about me and he would let meowmy know what he says. He said that doctor may want to see me to get his own opinion and see where to help my doctor go from there. Dr. Smith did say that I am somewhat of a mystery since all my test results, temperature etc are fine. He said that one of the thyroid tests did come back and the results are within normal range. Just waiting on the one specific test. So that almost leaves us back at square one. Dr. Smith called meowmy this afternoon after we got home and he had set up another vet visit with that other vet for Monday at 1:00pm. This doctor has the technology to check my blood pressure and give me an EKG if that is what the next step needs to be. It is okay because meowmy just wants to figure out what is going on with me. Dr. Smith said that he was giving me too low of a dose of baby asprin at 5 mg. He increased it to 40 mg (half a baby asprin) every other day.

So we will see what the next few days bring. I am still not my old self. Meowmy hopes that the two doctors will be able to come up with something to help me. Meowmy is really worried about me and is trying to do anything to make me better. I will be updating my diary often.

Love & purrz,
Annie!

 

Part of my blood test results are in....

Meow!

Meowmy talked to the vet's office this morning and all of my test results are in EXCEPT my thyroid tests. That is the test we are waiting on the most!!!! All my blood work is normal which is good. Meowmy is sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear about my thyroid tests!!!
The vet is going to be calling meowmy this afternoon to talk about me more.

I am still not feeling good. I am still crying when I am picked up or touched near my tummy and hind legs. I am not eating much, I am drinking more than I am eating which is always good. Meowmy tried to give me my 5 mg. of baby asprin in a little tiny bit of canned food last night and I hardly even ate that. It took me a little while but I DID eat it and I DID get my pill down. Meowmy is trying hard to get me to feel better.

So please continue to keep me in your purrayers, keep purring for me and just hope I get to feeling better! It means so much to me and meowmy that you all care! I will update my diary as soon as meowmy hears from the vet and/ or hears about my thyroid tests!

Love and purrz,
Annie!

 

Today was not a good day again...

Meow!

I was doing somewhat okay until late last night. I was in my bed sleeping and meowmy gave me some food so I woke up. She picked me up and I started crying again when she touched me. She immediately gave me some of my 5mg of baby asprin because the doctor told her that I could have 5 mg. everyday that I have a bad day until they figure out what is going on with me. Meowmy held me and all I wanted to do is rest my chin on her shoulder. I just didn't feel good at all. All I know is that I want to feel good again and I know meowmy is concerned about me.

This morning I was the same way. I cried whenever meowmy held me. I wanted to be held though. I don't understand why I am sick. Meowmy says she is waiting to hear what my blood tests show. I didn't eat, drink or use the litterbox today much at all. Today was a bad day for me. Meowmy held me a lot and told me she loves me. That makes me feel a little better and I know meowmy is going to do whatever she can to make me better.

Meowmy is going to call the vet first thing in the morning because she didn't hear anything today from them about my blood tests. She is hoping to find something out and if I need to be on medication to help me get better then she wants to get me on it as soon as she can. She really wants me to get better soon. Sometimes she gets a little impatient and wants things to go faster than they do.

Well, I am not feeling much better now. Meowmy is going to try and feed me some canned food to see if I am going to eat it or not. I am also going to get the 5 mg. baby asprin too. She is so worried that this is going to lead to a big blood clot and meowmy says that is bad. That would probably mean I would cross over to the rainbow bridge. She is really hoping to get this all worked out soon! Thank you, meowmy, for caring so much about me. I love you and am so glad you are my meowmy. I know you won't let anything bad happen to me and I know you are really trying to make me better! I am going to go curl up in my bed now! I will update my diary tomorrow and hopefully we will know the results of my blood tests!

Thank you effuryone for all the pmails, messages, purrz, purrayers, rosettes and presents. It might take me a little while to thank all of you personally but I will! It really means the world to me!

Love & purrz,
Annie!

 

My vet visit today....

January 5th 2010 7:02 pm

Meow!

I went to the vet this afternoon and had a cow in the carrier on my way to the vet! MOL I meowed and hollered half the way there! MOL

Well, I wasn't too thrilled with my vet visit! MEOW! I'm not a fan of going to the vet. Oh well, I just hope it makes me feel better. Dr. Smith shaved my neck and took some blood from me. MEOW....now I look kind of strange! MOL Anyway, he is testing me for hyperthroidism. If it turns out to be that, I can be treated with a pill. Hopefully the pill will work because if it doesn't then I have to go to Denver and have to take radioactive iodine to help my thyroid. That means I will have to stay there for 30 days because they would have to properly dispose of my toxic feces and urine. Meowmy thinks that sounds scary and the vet said it is VERY,VERY expensive! My heart rate was still high at 240 beats per minute. He is thinking that the thyroid is causing this. The medication will treat it too. For now, he is not leaning towards me having hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Because I do not have a heart murmur which most kitties do that have that disease!!! Meowmy is very happy and hoping that it not that!!

Meowmy and Dr. Smith talked about me for quite a while. He checked me out real good after meowmy told him that I was crying and could hardly move my hind legs on Saturday. He said there is nothing that he could feel wrong with me. He is thinking though that I might be having some small blood clots that are getting lodged near my hind legs in the arteries. The blood clots are caused by my heart beating so fast. He wants meowmy to continue giving me the baby asprin which is 5 mg every three days to help prevent a big blood clot from forming which will be fatal if it was to happen. He told meowmy that he also wants her to give me 5 mg each day I have a bad episode like I did this weekend until it is over. My bad episode was Friday, Saturday & Sunday so I would have gotten a 5mg of asprin all three days. He said if it is hyperthroidism, then that will be treated with the meds too! Only problem is meowmy is having problems cutting up a 81 mg pill to the 5 mg that I need. She says it almost turns to powder or just a sliver of the pill. She says it is a pain but I am worth it! MOL MOL

SOOOO....meowmy is keeping all her fingers and toes crossed that she hears good news. The test results should be back sometime tomorrow or Thursday. Meowmy says even if it is hyperthyroidism....she can give me a pill everyday just like she does Hailey. She would take the hyperthyroidism anyday over the hypertrophic cardiomyopathy which the prognosis isn't good!!!! MEOW!!! Please keep purring for me and hope for the best news!!!!!! I just want to feel better real soon!!!

Love & purrz,
Annie!

 

Something is just not right with me.......

January 4th 2010 1:50 pm

Meow!

I haven't been my normal "Annie" self for a few weeks. Well, not the whole two weeks. I was not feeling very good right before Christmas and then I seemed to have been feeling better. I went with my pawrents and my sisfur, Hailey, to visit grandmeowmy in Denver for Christmas. I was feeling so much better and meowmy was so glad. I was feeling better up until this past Friday night. Meowmy thought that whatever I had was gone and she was just going to make a recheck appointment with the vet. She was going to have him check out my heart rate and hope it was just a virus that was causing me to feel bad etc! I was even playing with my ball with the bell in it on Thursday. Yep, I was all over the house playing with the ball and talking to my imaginary furriend like I do when I am feeling good.

Friday night about 8pm, meowmy noticed that I was walking with a limp and like it was hard for me to walk. My hind end seems to get stiff. Meowmy picked me up and I started crying. She tried to check me over but I wouldn't let her. I just cried and went and hung out by the dining room table. I was really restless and seemed like I couldn't get comfortable. Later on, meowmy noticed that I was having a lot of trouble getting up the stairs. She took some food downstairs just for me. I was eating okay.

Saturday, I was worse. I could hardly even walk and cried whenever I was touched. Meowmy could not get me in to the vets that were open at all. She kept me comfortable and put me in the bathroom and isolated me from the other kitties. I was nibbling at my food and didn't use my litterbox all day. Meowmy was really getting worried about me. I just hung out in my bed. That is all I wanted to do. Meowmy spent a lot of time with me holding me, petting me and trying not to make me cry.

Sunday, I was doing a little better. I still cried a little when I was picked up etc. I had used the litterbox and so meowmy was happy that I was going potty. I was eating pretty good and up moving around a little more. Meowmy was relieved a little but still worried about me.

Today....meowmy was going to call the vet to make an appointment but the vet called her instead. The vet that is supposed to do the ultrasound on my heart has been out of town for the holidays and is back in town now. The two doctors want to do blood work on me, several thyroid tests, possibly a urinalysis and then the heart ultrasound if they still need too. They are going to find out what is wrong with me. Meowmy is so much hoping that it isn't anything bad and is really hoping that whatever it is, is curable! So.....I go into the vet tomorrow afternoon at 1:30pm. I need all the purrz, purrayers etc that I can get.

This has been a terrible few weeks for the animals in my furramily. I have been sick off and on. Hailey,my sisfur, had a few visits from the seizure monster. My human brofur, Joey's guinea pig, Maggie, died right before Christmas. Then, my doggie cousin (grandmeowmy's doggie), Noah, went to the bridge on Dec. 30, 2009! So it has been purrty hard around here!

Thanks for listening, diary. I know this is a long entry this time......
I'll let you know what the vet says tomorrow.

Love & purrz,
Annie!
