The Baby here.
A year ago things looked pretty bleak for me. I was terribly thin, slept all the time, and was in considerable pain from Irritable Bowel Disease. Nothing stayed down and I was constantly vomiting bile. Mommy and Daddy were very afraid that my time was close...and Mommy decided to take the risk and have my innards surgically examined as a last-ditch effort to find out what was ailing me.
It was a really tough decision. She had to do it (secretly) while Daddy was on vacation so he wouldn't freak out. She wasn't sure I'd make it through the procedure, I was so frail. She was a mess--as bad as me, actually--and then there was the expense.
Which you, my friends, so generously helped with, as well as the many many many e-mails, phone calls, and texts wishing me well and giving Mommy hope. I want to thank you all so much, again, for everything!
Today you would never know that I had been so ill. Sure, I've slowed down a teensy bit, but I am, after all, almost sixteen years old. (Although you would never suspect it from the way she beat the tar out of a paper bag this afternoon--ed.) I "get" a prednisone pill every day, and along with a canned food diet supplemented with lots and lots of real chicken, beef and bacon (!!!) I'm back up to a healthy 8 pounds of White Sassy Cat.
So, once again, all of us here at The Lounge would like to say thank you for all the support. Especially me.
Life is Good.
