KC is very sick...UPDATED

She is at the Houston Cat Hospital, under the excellent care of Dr. Smith and Staff.
KC developed complications from the ladiegardenectomy last Thursday at another animal clinic.
She has a severe infection in the deep tissue underneath.
She is severely dehydrated and running a temperature.
The other clinic had given her the wrong (ineffective) pain meds.
Dr. Smith put in drainage tubes, an IV for fluids, antibiotics and extra pain medications.
Dr. Smith performed surgery today to clean out the infection.
During this surgery, KC stopped breathing.
Dr. Smith performed an emergency trach and breathed for her.
Now KC has another Angel.
Please keep sweet little KC in your prayers.
*** UPDATE ***
KC's Godmother Deb (Taylor Catsssss) called Dr. Smith first thing this morning.
KC is doing fine, even moving about a bit.
Charley and I are going to visit KC, we'll take pictures and report back later.
I just called and they are keeping KC until Monday at the earliest.
Thank you for all the prayers, purrrrrs and purr-rayers.
I am amazed by the response and thank you with all my heart.
Also, check out Sweet Libby's blog, she is also doing better today.

I was worried 'cause she seemed to be taking a long time to get better. I know taking out the boy-bits is easier than a ladiegardenectomy but.....

KC, I'm purring extra-special hard just for you!!!!! PURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get well again! Pleasepleaseplease!!!!

Oh no. I just clicked on here to see what that precious little KC was up to today and saw this. It did seem like it was taking longer for her to recuperate than it should. Taylor and I are sending prayers and purrs to her. Please keep us updated on her progress. We'll be checking in all night long and all weekend. KC, please get better really quick.

Poor widdle-iddle KC.All of us poodins over here in Baltimore are purring really hard for her. The infection was caught in time so we have no doubt that in a few weeks she will be up and reporting again soon. And the fact that she is a tortie thru and thru is just further proof that she is a strong widdle poodin.
