First we want to THANK EVERYONE for all the special gifts that are proudly displayed on my page. MOM and I LOVE you all and you know who you are! WE wish we had time to send everyone back a box of candy .. but mom is just plain tired after taking care of me and countless nights of little sleep and working. Last Monday evening i started with my usual gastritis attack so mom treated me in the usual way .. i sort of felt better on Tuesday but Tuesday evening i started vomiting which i never do and had terrible diarrhea ( which i never get ) plus i just stopped eating and mom had a terrible time getting me to take my medication. Mom had a visit planned for me at a new homeopathic vet on Wednesday and i was so of better but still not eating so she kept the appointment. It was quite the positive experience. I never even shook once and we were there for 1 full hour!! If you remember my BUN kidney function has rose to 147 normal should be around 20 and my creatines were 3.2 not good either , but my other numbers related to kidney function are normal. He thinks this is a indication that i am dehydrated due to all the medication i am on and nutrition. To make a long story short he sent me home with a new diet for 2 weeks of cottage cheese, ground turkey and hard boiled egg, along with probiotics and digestive enzymes and something called tummy relief. He also gave me a vitamin injection ...I just started eating this morning , but i am still far from being my self. I am very lethargic , not giving any kisses and drinking a lot . Mom is still very worried that maybe there is another under lying condition that they are missing but she is going to give me until Monday .. and if i don't bounce back than she will call him back. At this age when things happen we tend to go down hill fast.The scale says i haven't lost weight . but i am pretty boney ! If you don't see mom and i here much this is why! Mom really wants to concentrate on me and she is just really tired . We love you all and please know that is a fact .. and we will be back more often just as soon as we can !

Hope everyone has a very Happy Valentines Day !,
Love Buttercup & Mom !
