I have been receiving emails about my daughter's cat, "Buster." He was sent to a specialists' facility in another city on Tuesday, where they diagnosed his problems. He made it through the surgery yesterday afternoon, which was a miracle in itself as he was so weak. The specialist called me at 8 this morning to let me know that he made it through the night and had a good night. He will remain on the IV line yet today and then will see what tomorrow brings. I planned on doing a post with photos of him last night, but I collapsed after I got home from my daughter's around 10pm. This has been a busy week with cats again, and we are getting ready to head back to Greenville shortly as today is "Sweet Pea's" monthly checkup after her radiation treatments, plus we will get to visit "Buster," too! She has been "Buster's" companion since 1995, so hopefully, she can sneak a little peek at him today, also.
I can't wait to get there so I can see my little guy! I haven't been sleeping well at night, as I keep waking up, thinking of him. He must be so scared being caged, with tubes coming out of him and one of those plastic cloth type collars around his neck so he can't tear out his IV. What must the little fella think? That we have abandoned him? That he will never see us again? My heart just aches for the little guy. The surgeon removed ALL of the tumor off his liver, which he didn't think would be possible at first, resectioned his bowel where he removed another large tumor, and took an enlarged lymph node for biopsy, also. Now we have to see how his kidneys are going to do as they are dilated and diseased, too. How is a pet owner supposed to know that this is going on inside their pet? You don't. It just happens almost overnight. So we are praying for him every minute and would appreciate if all of you would send a prayer up for him, too. He is 14 years old and has been a wonderful pet for my daughter. He was her very own first pet when she finished college and bought her first home. He is like her child.
I will do a post all about him tonight. Please pray for the little guy......we love him so much!!!
