Guess what...

Hello my friends.. Mum and dad took me to the dreaded place today for some injections. I was prodded and poked some more and discussions were going on. Mum and dad told the vet that I had eaten something for the last two days and that I had asked for the prawns yesterday.The vet said this was a good sign and maybe I was coming through the tunnel. The vet lady said she had done a lot of thinking about me and my tests and when mum had mentioned the stress of the dental, she thought the answer could be that the stress of that could have let in a virus and that had made me ill. Virus's don't show up in blood tests. The vet lady also said she thought that the virus was working out of my system and that in turn was letting me start to eat. the ultimate thing was that when they put me on the scales I had put on a few ounces. I must be getting something from the small amount I was eating. They decided that I was not going to have the steroid but to keep trying me with food and to see how I went on. I will be weighed and if I put on or maintain my weight then we are indeed going through that tunnel. I ate some food later today and although not a great amount it is good. And.... mum has been out and bought some more prawns for me, I hope I will get those later tonight. So keep those purrs going please and pray that the end of that tunnel is in sight.. Dad was eating a sausage roll and as I love the meat inside he took it all out and fed me some. I only ate one piece but one piece is good.. Especially as I asked for it... This week has been quite a week and taken it out of mum so some good news is so welcome.. Take care love to you all.. Hugs GJ xx

TwoSpecialWires said...

We are soooo happy for your good news! It really does make us smile inside. Keep up the good job, GJ. And think: APPETITE! (Prawns are sounding really good about now. Hmmmm. Maybe for dinner?)

Now. About other things. Can you tell that Moma has been a bit frazzled as of late? That blog we were wanting to direct you to is: http://chloeandcecil.blogspot.com/ Hehehe. YOURS was stuck in our computer's memory 'cause we were pasting it back into our blogroll. (How we lost it in the first place, we'll never know!)

AND! No, we didn't know your woofie cousins were from pawzforthought! Yippee! All the more reason to celebrate GrumpyBobby receiving those toys! We are soooo happy!

So. There's LOTS of reason for happy celebrations. Not the least of which is your advance out of the tunnel. Keep on movin' forward!

Much love,
Jake and Fergi

Good going GJ!! It does sound like you have turned the corner and hopefully will keep on eating and gaining your weight back!! Have a great weekend! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Each day seems to bring a bit more good news, GJ. Mom has a friend who told her about one of her friends that had some dental work done, got some sort of infection in her gum, and it formed an abcess in her brain. She had to have some very serious surgery. Maybe there is something to this virus from your dental. Keep getting better, GJ, we are all pulling for you.

Kea said...

GJ, we're doing a (cautious) happy dance for you and are purring and purraying that you have, indeed, turned the corner. *Kitty kisses* to you and hugs your mum. Tell her to be especially kind to herself...It *does* take a huge amount out of our beans, when we're sick. In our mom's case, re: Annie, she mostly ate toast and drank tea and there wasn't much else she could keep down. So our health definitely impacts the health of our humans!

Marg said...

Oh Gosh, GJ, we sure hope you have turned the corner. That is so cute that Dad gave you his food. It is amazing what we cat people do for our kitties. Keep taking those small steps Ginger Jasper. I can't tell you what good news that is. Still sending the purrs and prayers. Like Brian we are cheering you on. We are in your corner. Take care. More hugs to Mom and Dad.

Simba said...

I am really just purring for more eating, day by day. You will get out of this, I think.

But Mom wonders if they use a tube in a kitty's throat when they anesthetize them for a dental. If you got some injury to your throat that way, and it was hurting, then I don't think you would want to eat. Just an idea for how it might have had a connction to the dental.

YIPPEE! Oh, Ginger Jasper, that is just the BEST news I've heard in a long, long time! My paws are crossed that you get feeling better and better!

Keep eating those prawns and dad's sausage roll! :-) Take care and lots of hugs!! xx

Oh my dearest GJ. I am SO happy that you are doing better. Your mommy and daddy love you sooo much and I think the Vet is right. You are slowly walking out of the tunnel and into the sun puddles again.
