Maybe a Little Progress

Finally a new picture of me. Mom almost forgot to take a picture of me today, but she finally remembered. I always take a nap after lunch and Mom didn't remember to take my picture until after I started my nap. I nap in this bed when there isn't a sun spot on my platform. My chest fur is growing back nicely, but slowly. It is still really short. I saw Mom coming with my Interferon today and didn't even try to get away. I still protest a bit about getting it, but I take it. I wasn't a bit interested in my toys today, but I came right up to Mom for my brushing.

Karen Jo: I think things might be getting just a little bit better for you, Herman. One of your poop puddles was quite a bit thicker than they have been. I think you are feeling more like yourself, too. You woke me up before dawn for breakfast, which you haven't been doing lately. You also put on some speed going down the hall in front of me, which you haven't done in quite a while. Maybe the time isn't too far off when you'll be thundering down the hall at full speed again.

But I still have to go back to the vet, right?

Karen Jo: Yes, Herman, unless those poop puddles get a whole lot thicker in the next couple of days, you have to go back to the vet.

Will I get stabbed with a needle again?

Karen Jo: Probably. Those shots perk you right up and thicken up your poop. Unfortunately, the effects wear off in a couple of days.

I have gotten some awards and you have been ignoring them.

Karen Jo: I know, Herman. I will get to them, possibly tomorrow, but Tuesday at the latest.

Glad things are looking up...The vet might not be your favorite human right now, Herman, but if he makes you feel better, then KJ can relax and enjoy your handsome floofiness.
Keep up the good work.

This sounds like good news Herman. A bad tummy can take it out of a chap, so we really hope you are on the mend and gaining back some energy. Gerry is very happy that you are taking your Interferon like a good cat. Here's to solid poop!

Hi Herman! We are a bit behind so your vet visit is today - we hope it went well! And tell your mom that we think you know that the medicine makes you feel better which is why you are good about it - Floyd was like that with his medicine too. He would even let us know when he needed to be back on it by going to his medicine spot. We bet that is why you are so good too - you know it helps you! We are glad you are feeling better - just play a little bit so your mom can relax a little, ok! We are still sending you lots of purrs and prayers!!

Oh Herman, I worried about you all weekend! Your pressie should be going to the post office today. I hope your energy comes back soon.
It sounds like you are starting to feel better. Mommy Karen Jo loves you so much. She's doing a great job. I hope the VET can make you feel even better.
I will check on you again this week. You can come to Toeshee's birthday party on Thursday. :)
Love and Hugs,

Shaggy and Scout said...

Keep at it Herman!
It's not pleasant going to the v-e-t but it's a necessary evil and they are making you feel better.
Mom says she'd like to pet your handsome floofyness.
