Wordy Wednesday

We are breaking our silence today to send out a special news bulletin!

Fiona visited Dr. Neel yesterday to have her PCV (packed cell volume) and weight checked.


happy dance


If you don’t recall, Fiona had an injection last week with medication (Darbepoetin Alfa) provided by Mom Ellen (15AndMeowing) to help her anemia. Her PCV last week was 17. Her current PCV is 22.5. Thus, the happy dance!

She also maintained her weight of 5.9 pounds. We hate that her weight is so low, but pleased it didn’t drop additionally this week.

She’ll return to see Dr. Neel again next Tuesday for another PCV check and possible injection. We’ll let you know how that goes.

Please keep Fiona in your prayers. And please, please add our best pal, Sammy (onespoiledcat), to your prayers and send him some POTP. He spent Tuesday night in the hospital getting IV fluids and some other treatments. Sammy has hyperthyroidism and kidney problems. We love him so much. We know many of you do as well so hope you’ll share.


happy dance


Please feel free to use our graphic on your blog.

Tomorrow will be an extra special Thanksgiving post. We know everyone will be busy with family, but please drop in if you can find a few minutes.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Fiona, I am happy that you maintained that weight. My Robin went through tines like yours and she got to 5 pounds. I was grateful for that too. She stayed there. Love and more love too you loved girl. And mom and I did not know about Sammy. I go there most days but I missed that somehow. I am terribly sad about his illness.

Austin Towers November 23, 2016 at 8:47 am

Oh Fiona, I am so glad you are doing better!! You are a fighter for sure! But I am so sad that Sammy has been in the hospital. I’ve been so out of touch *glares at Staff* I have grabbed the picture and will go check on him! xxxx
