Mom has been SUPER Busy but is back in line!

Mom has been SUPER busy!! She was working on a pilot called "Glee". She just finished 17 long days on sunday and now she's back and able to spend more time with us! Even mom's free time was spent working-she would sometimes work 6 or 7 days a week with no days off....so we're really happy to have mom home!!

Winton is ok-he has good days and then days of just sleeping. Mom has to put him up on the counter to eat. ALl he wants to do is sleep. He seems a little better about 8 hours after his fluids, but mom says he's lost so much weight! She just wants to keep him comfortable! He is still tolerating his fluids ever other day. Mom is going to get smaller needles because he's crying and being more difficult getting his fluids. The other day he got 75cc's which is good. He hasn't bitten mom yet but he does turn his head and growl now which he never did. But mom keeps trying and will continue with smaller needles until he doesn't tolerate fluids at all. She says his skin is feeling leathery and is tough-which makes the needles harder to get under his skin-and he's just skin and bones. But he still eats when mom puts him on the counter! So as long as he enjoys eating......

The rest of us are good. Blossom really beats up on 3 Perf. And it seems Blossom is beginning to like Velcro, the dog. She doesn't really bother me much-she must know I'm Russian and stoic and not to mess with me!


***UPDATE*** Winton bit mom tonight when she was giving him fluids. The first time he's ever bitten mom! Mom is going to have to rethink Winton's care now.

We've been worried about you guys and especially about Winton. We know your Mommy will do everything to keep him having a quality life.
We send our purrs and love to all of you...

Poor Winton. This has got to be so hard on him if all he wants to do is sleep. We don't like needles either.

We hope he didn't bite your mom too hard.

We're sorry that Winton bit your Mom, hopefully the new needles will help. We're still purring for him.

And we've got some awards for you all over on our bloggie (maybe that will cheer him up)!

Poor Winton and poor Winton's Mum's finger. Is there any way that his fluids could be warmed a little before giving them to him? Our v-e-t said that cold fluids can be stingy sometimes so she likes to give them warmed, We don't know how the v-e-t does this though.

I hope your mom can relax a little bit now after 17 days!

Sending lots of good thoughts to Winton - I don't think I would like needles much either! :-/

Oh I was glad to see a post, I missed you guys.

Poor sweet Winton. Our puss angel got too difficult to give sub cuts at the end. The vet would do it once a week and then we chose to stop.

Sending you big purrs and hugs, and I hope your mom gets some time to put her feet up and relax.

Hugs to you all.

Poppy and Julie Q

Smooches to the fur kids. Sorry that Winton is feeling grouchy. You know, I understand,

Hang in there and send me an email if you have any questions.
