A Little Bit of Good News (I Think)

Greetings, Fellow Felines!

Mummy took Pixie back to That Place again this morning, for another infusion and before they left, she whispered to me to say goodbye to Pixie - just in case... Then, at lunchtime, she went back there and I could see, by her face, that she thought she would be coming home without Pixie. But, Fellow Felines, when she came home, she brought Pixie with her after all! And Pixie curled up on the bed in her usual place and Mummy gave her something to eat. I couldn't understand why she gave her Fancy Feasties, after what the V-E-T said, but Mummy explained that Pixie's blood tests showed a slight improvement and that she will now be giving Pixie infusions twice a day at home till Sunday, when she will take her back to the V-E-T for more blood tests. In the meantime, the V-E-T said to feed her anything she wants, the main thing is to be sure that she does eat something. But I only got my regular dry food! Huh! Mummy did pour some chicken soup on it - I like licking out her bowl when she makes chicken soup for Shabbat. But I was too clever for her. I licked up the soup and left the dry food.
I wonder how she's going to manage to give Pixie infusions. I should think the moment Pixie sees that needle, she'll run a mile!
Later on, if Pixie wakes up before our Human turns off the computer, I shall read her some of the kind letters you've been sending her since she was taken ill. It is good to know we have so many friends, purring and woofing for Pixie. I know she'll be very touched and will want to thank you all purr-sonally, when she's well again. But we must remember, we're not out of the woods yet. Like I said, we have to get through the next few days and poor Pixie must still have infusions. She is still very weak and Mummy is afraid to get her hopes up.
So please, Dear Friends, keep those purrs and woofs coming.


Thank you so much and Love to you all,


Possum

Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement.
@Kassey, we're pleased to see you got your blog back :-)
@Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitties - yes, thank you, Mummy gave both of us some chicken out of the chicken soup, and I got chicken soup with mine too. Pixie didn't want hers. She's hardly eaten all day.
@Admiral - I am well, thank you - only dreadfully worried about Pixie. She seems so listless and apathetic and Mummy is afraid she isn't responding to treatment as well as she might. Mummy keeps turning away, so as to hide the water coming out of her eyes, but she can't fool Me.
Oh, before I forget, Mummy updated about Pixie today in her own blog.

The J-Cats said...

I can't begin to tell you all how much your kind words and purrs and woofs and good wishes have touched Pixie and Me. To know that there are so many of you out there thinking of her and sending her healing energies gives all three of us (Mummy too) more strength to carry on fighting for little Pixie's life.

Pixie and Possum's Mummy said...

I too, want to thank you all for your support at this difficult time. Pixie is feeling a little better today. We have an appointment with the vet on Sunday, when Pixie will undergo further tests to see if there's any improvement in her kidney function. Despite the apparent improvement today, I dare not let myself get too optimistic, as there have been ups and downs before now. I just want to ask you to carry on purring, woofing and praying for my baby until we can be sure she's better.
