update

Finally....an update on my dear Sweetie, though nothing definitive, yet. They did an Ultrasound on him today....(Having eliminated many things with other tests and actually removing two back teeth, a few days ago.....). This showed some irregularity in Sweetie's Pancreas. So, they took some "cells" by needle---the least invasive way at this point---which may or may not show what is going on. (I pray it does tell us what we need to know.....) But given his symptoms and what has been happening with him----having a problem with the Pancreas fits the picture. These test results will probably NOT be back till Monday--OR if we are lucky, on Saturday....! Poor little sweetheart of a guy.
The hardest part for me, besides not knowing---Is not being able to go and see him. Given my compromised lungs, it is just not possible without risking my own health in a way that would be a very dangerous thing to do. I know he must be missing me, too, and that breaks my heart. But, he is getting good care and they see what a very sweet dear cat he is, and I am glad of that. This is a different home without him being here. More news when I have it to post.....And thank you all for your kind and understanding hearts, and for your dear words of encouragement---it means so very much to both of us!

More To Come........

thank you for posting an update
I had a sweet girl named Sheba who had pancreatic issues
She lived very comfortably with them for years once a combonation of meds and diet changes was figured out
I hope Sweeties's issues are not more complex than that

Me and Siren and Iza continue to think of you and Sweetie and send lots of hugs and scratches under the chin

Thanks for the update. I have been concerned and hope they figure out what is going on and a treatment soon; so he can come home.

Got your email. Poor Sweetie! I really hope they get him to feeling better soon. I can't imagine how hard it is on you (and him)!

I'm glad that medical tests are continuing for your Sweetie. It's so hard for the veterinary staff to diagnose exactly what's wrong as an animal can't really tell us where it hurts. But your dear cat is in good hands, and I'm sure they'll let you know what's going on as soon as possible. Don't fret, Naomi, all being well, Sweetie will be home soon.

Oh, honey, I'm so glad you posted an update, and I will keep praying for him. I hope the tests show what's going on.

I know he misses you, as you miss him. I'm sure you must want to call them every hour (or more!!) for an update -- I know I would. I'm the crazy cat lady! Crazy cat ladies unite!

Be strong, Naomi. He will be soooooo happy to see you when he comes home. Hold on to that thought.

Much love to you, and Sweetie.
xoxo

The toughest part is the waiting and not being able to see and hold Sweetie, but thankfully, he's receiving good care. I do hope you get better news tomorrow, my friend!

I'm flying out to the States today but you are both in my thoughts, because you must miss Sweetie so very much.

Thinking of you both, and praying that little Sweetie is home with you very, very soon.

I can't imagine the heartache of not being able to go see Sweetie. When Max had to be hospitalized for a week, the kids and I went over there 3 times a day to feed and walk him. He had been abandoned multiple times by previous owners and I didn't want him thinking we'd abandoned him too. I don't know what the vet clinic thought about that. They did say no one else had done that before. My favorite were the pictures my kids drew and put on his kennel. I really hope everything goes well for Sweetie and that he's back home very soon. It really isn't the same house without a loved one. Good luck.

I sure hope whatever the results that he will be ok... being apart has got to be awful! I know you can't wait for him to be home again!

So glad for your updated, just wish it were more concrete news. I know how frustrating it must be to not be able to visit him.
Praying they discover what he has, fix it and bring him home ASAP.
You are both in my prayers.

Oh Naomi, so sorry to hear that your sweetie is having problems... I know he is your dear companion and that you miss him a ton....

We have hobo kittie right now.... Three mama cats and six of the nine original kittens... One kitten lost its life after climbing up into the engine of my husbands truck... The other two disappeared a week ago and I can't find them anywhere... We have had the mama cats fixed, so there will be no more kittens and we plan to fix the kittens in another month...

Good luck with Sweetie and please, let us know what the results are..

Thank you for the update. Looking at my little Mitsou who has been losing weight lately I thought about your Sweetie and hoped he was getting better. These little pets have such a great hold on our heart that it hurts us so much when they are not totally well. I hope you will know soon what is the problem and that it will be OK.

Naomi- I'm just caching up on things as I've been away again this past week. It must be torture for you worrying and not being able to visit. Cats are special creatures, and have a real bond with us. I'm praying for you both, and wish Sweetie a speedy recovery.

I'm so sorry to see that Sweetie is in the hospital. I will surely say a prayer that the news is good. I know how painful it is to have a 4 legged member of the family unwell. Thank God that medicine has made such huge strides in the veterinary field. She's in good hands and hopefully will be recuperating at home in even better hands very soon.
