I’m Surrounded by Sickies….

imageedit_11_8829755060

People….it’s true.  I’m surrounded by sickies.  I’m so thankful that I’m healthy.  It seems everything started falling apart last week.

Let me explain.  First of all, let me tell you about Mom.  She went to see her human vet this week ‘cuz she was having a few issues.  Now she has to go have pictures taken of her brain.  She said first of all she’s going to have to find a brain and she’s not sure where to look.  According to her, this thing called Amazon ran out of brains.  Guess she’s in big trouble.  The other night both Steinbeck and I had to laugh right out loud at her.  She was sleeping soundly and next thing we knew, she was on the floor again!!!  Remember when she did that before?  Some of her friends have told her she’s going to have to pile pillows up around the bed.  We both think that would really be neat!

This morning, Steinbeck was yelling.  Yep…he was actually yelling!!!  He always squeaks and that’s the only noise he makes.  Not this morning.  He woke Mom up super early and she was very concerned.  She decided she was going to take Steinbeck to see the doctor lady before heading to work.  She sent a message to her boss and told her she would be late.  When I heard her talking about the doctor lady and that building, I knew I wanted to hide ‘cuz I sure didn’t want to go!

Mom dropped off Steinbeck at the hospital and I haven’t seen him since this morning.  I asked Mom about it when she got home from work and she explained that he has to stay in the hospital until Friday night.  She asked me if I wanted to get some flowers to take to Steinbeck in the hospital.  I just looked at her and shook my head.  Mom stopped by the hospital tonight to see how Steinbeck was doing.  This is how he came into the room:

Mom didn’t get all of Stephanie’s face ‘cuz she was concentrating on Steinbeck.  I must admit I started to laugh when I saw him with that cone head thing on.  MOL!!!  Turns out he had a urinary tract infection and was plugged up.  No wonder he was howling!!  He was in lots of pain and was so confused.  I felt bad for him when Mom told me.

Here’s Steinbeck showing off his messy furs.  Mom wanted to brush him but she knew he wasn’t interested.  I think he looks kind of cute all “ruffled up”.

At the vet1

I see that Steinbeck has a red bracelet on.  I remember when I was in the hospital place and they put a bracelet on me.  Right now I can’t remember what color mine was.  I told Mom to tell Steinbeck that he looks very dapper.

At the vet4I think Steinbeck is thinking about escaping and is planning his route.  He’s my brother and I can tell things like that.  I better stay by the door tonight so I can let him in.

From the Mom:

Yes………it’s been an exciting time here lately.  I’ve been having trouble breathing and have been getting dizzy again.  This is not the vertigo I went through a few months ago.  This is different.  My doctor wants to make sure she’s checked out everything so I’ll be having some scans next week.  I’ve never been a smoker so that’s not what’s causing the breathing problem.  When Steinbeck was howling this morning I really got scared.  He never makes noises like that unless he’s in the car on the way to the vet.  He looked miserable and wasn’t doing much moving.  When I visited him tonight he wasn’t as stressed out but still wasn’t interested in eating.  Hemingway has definitely turned into Velcro Kitty and won’t leave my side.  I’m sure it will be a happy reunion when the brothers are together again.  Thanks for reading and thanks for any prayers you might want to send.

  1. Dear Pam, I’m sorry to learn you are having dizzy spells again and falling and am glad you’re seeing a doctor about it. I pray she will discover what is the matter and will prescribe measures to remedy it. Also, I’m sorry to read about Steinbeck and his UTI. It had to be serious for the vet to have him stay at the clinic. I’m praying for both of you. 💕

  2. I hope you will be okay! I’m sending healing purrs your way. I’m sure Steinbeck is on the mend now, but I’m sending him lots of healing purrs too. Those blockages are no fun for us kitties. 😦

  3. We are absolutely sending prayers for you AND for Steinbeck. We hope he can come home very soon so Hemingway doesn’t have to worry about his little brother. We ALSO hope that your own scans don’t show anything scary and that they can figure out what’s causing your dizzies and breathing problems. So sorry – we know what a worry it is NOT knowing what’s going on!!! Seems it’s the “summer of health problems” – my Dad has yet ANOTHER hernia to be repaired! Humans are so delicate!

    Hugs, Teddy (and Mom too………..)

  4. Mom and I said prayers for both of you for feeling poorly. Also for your doctors and nurses to be wise and compassionate. We know that medicine is amazing and so is prayer, so we know you will both be well soon. Don’t worry, H. All will be back to normal soon.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

  5. Sending healing purrs to the mom and Steinbeck. Hemingway will have his paws full taking care of everyone.

Purrs, meows, barks, chirps and human comments are greatly appreciated. We love hearing from our readers.
