It'sh been quitesh a day my furiendsh. I wash doing purrty good and thingsh were turning around. Mom wash with me thish afternoon. She camesh back tonight and shpentsh more time with me. My eyesh were bright, I wash more alert. My gashtro nashal tube had been removed, back on iv and antibioticsh. She noted I wash breathing funny and called the RN in. My tummy wash extended too. They tooksh me back and gavesh me an ultrashound and talked to mom and were putting the tube backsh in to removes the fluid and air. She camesh home around 9:30 pm and at 10:33 pm gotsh the call that I had gone into reshpiratory arresht. It would have been too much more for me to go through and though my heart wash beating, I washn't breathing and my pupilsh were fixed and dilated. Mom couldn't getsh there fasht enough and hadsh to shadly letsh them completesh my journey to the Bridge without her there. The vet did callsh back and wash crying and explained further and thinksh I threwsh a clot. She shaidsh they were all sho shad and loved me sho and comfurted mom. I crosshed the Rainbow Bridge at 10:35 pm.
I wantsh to thanksh you all fur your outpouring of prayersh, well wishes and loves fur me Dear Furiendsh. Your shupportsh meant sho much to me and mom. I can'tsh thanksh you enough fur being there fur ush.

Hi my Furiendsh!
It tooksh a bit to be able to writesh thish and I'll condenshe a fury long shtory to ash short ash I cansh.:D
Backing up a wee bit. Right after I gotsh mom, she noticed I washn't doing well. I'sh gotsh a type of bowel disheashe and wash being treated with medsh and shpecial food. I shtruggled with my weight but madesh it to ofur 12 lbsh.
She noticed I washn't being myshelf. We went to the Vet, who didsh teshtsh and we hadsh to takesh me back to the Shpecialisht (who madesh the confurmation fur my condition the fursht time). My lymph nodesh, which should hash been shrinking due to my medsh had gotten bigger.
On Thurs. April 24, I hadsh a lymph node removed and an endoscopy. My bowel wash punctured and I hadsh emergency shurgery. Hash to wearsh a cone and shtay in a crate fur 3 weeksh sho I won't jumpsh and ripsh open my shtitchesh. Lymph node benign, but I hash shmall cell lymphoma in my inteshtine and my disheashe hash purrgresshed to a level 10 of 10. Purrognoshish wash I would hash approx another 2-5 yrsh of quality life, which I had been given approx. 2 1/2 yrsh. ago.
Camesh home Furiday pm and didn't do wellsh in my crate, gotsh my cone off and wash throwing myshelf around. Back to the hoshpital. Mom gotsh efen bigger crate, coz though the one we had looked big, it really washn't and picked me up Sat. pm. I behaved the same only thish time I knocked my water ofur and gotsh it efurywhere, including on me and purrceded to laysh in the kitty litter, after I madesh sure to throwsh it all ofur the wallsh and floor! Alsho tried to picksh the latch! MOL! Back to the hoshpital to getsh cleaned up and makesh sure I didn't wrecksh my shtitches. Decided besht fur me to shtay there and be shtill fur a few daysh.
Well, ash of early afternoon on Wed. 4/30 I threwsh up (which I hash nefur efur done). After they cleaned me upsh mom camesh to shee me. I did not looksh good to her and wash fury lethargic and not me. Later, early efening they called and I had thrown up a few more timesh. They didsh an ultrashound and foundsh I wash blocked. My B/P wash down, no fever and white cell count down. Gavesh me an enema and didn't do much. I rapidly begansh going down hill that night and they wash in touch with mom. Didn't tellsh her till the next day, though she knew I wash in sherioush condition, didn't knowsh critical, that I almosht crosshed the Bridge. (They'sh all on notice to contactsh her immediately, no matter when, if thingsh goesh that direction againsh.)
Not much impurrovement Thurs. Wanted nothing to do with mom, except I did givesh her a prezzie and threwsh up all ofur her. Tee hee hee. Vet called later and my shtomach wash fury dishtended and wanted to shuction it due to purrevioush blockage and my tummy jusht shtopped working purroperly. Gotsh 220 ml's of fluid out.
I'sh getting lotsh of attention, lovesh, besht care they can givesh me and teshtsh I need. I'sh impurroved a shmidge sho fur today. My vitalsh are good, I'sh tried to makesh it to my litterbox (misshed, ooopsh!), shtill lethargic. I'sh on antibioticsh, ash I hash a shyshtemic infection ash well.
My tail ish wrapped sho I won'tsh getsh it all messhy. (redfurred) and I hash my t-shirt on that shaysh "Playing the Field". MOL!
Mom ish taking care of Gramma thish afternoon and then much later will comesh to sheesh me.
I'sh shorry I won't be able to keepsh up with efurythingsh right now and will doesh my besht, but knowsh I lovesh you all fury much.♥ My brofur Luigi, ish doing hish besht to comfurtsh mom.
Fur a short shtory that sure sheemsh long! MOL!
What I'sh ashking of you my furiendsh ish would you pawleashe keepsh me in your prayersh. I would sho appurciatesh it. :D Thanksh you sho much furom the bottom of my kitty heart.
Furefur your furiend,
P.S. Mom jusht gotsh a call furom the vet. I'sh throwed up again and my shtomach ish again filling with fluid.
