Saturday

UPDATE: Bear is home again, but has to return tomorrow for observation and fluids. KC was overjoyed when I put her down on the floor, she has stayed close to Bear every since. Bear really does not feel good, it's very difficult to watch her gasping for air and unable to stand up.

*****************************
Bear is back at the vet to spend the day, possibly the remainder of the weekend.

They said she had some slight improvement after being home for the night. They are running more tests ($$$) today to determine exactly how much heart damage there is. Her lungs are so full of fluid they really couldn't view the heart in the xrays. The doctor that performs the echo test visits the clinic on demand ($$$$$) and he is scheduled one day next week.

A bright spot today was, again, Karen Jo's limericks, this time about Bear.

Little Bear has never figured out she is not a cat. And KC does adore her. When we brought her in last night from the vet, no one could get near her, KC was at her side from then on. Bear slept in on the couch and both KC and Missy slept near her, keeping watch.

Stuck at the VET for test$$$ all weekend is no fun at all. We sure hope the test$$$ will show that something can be done to keep her feeling good for a long time. We're purrraying lots for our little furrend Bear, the woofie-cat.

My Mommie will agree that vet cardiologists are expen$$$ive! Pixie has to have an echocardiogram every 6 months! We are lucky to have a cardiac specialist in our area, but we used to have to wait for the visiting cardiologist who came once a month.

I am pulling for Bear!

As hard as it is to endure their illnesses, isn't so heartwarming to watch them comfort each other?
They are so precious. ML, if there is anything I can do, please let me know. Purrs and prayers...
