Gracie Update Monday, December 2nd at 11:45AM EST


Dad Terry here: Here is an update on Gracie and the crew. I went early this morning to do all the paperwork and things to transfer Gracie to the Internal Medicine Specialist. Before the transfer I got to visit with Gracie. She has a way to go yet but she looked much better this morning. She was bright-eyed and recognized me right off. She is still in the oxygen cage but when I put my hand in through the portal she started head butting my hand, and it was some pretty powerful head butts too, so she is much stronger. She even wanted to crawl out through the little portal to see me. As luck would have it, her Emergency Vet was checking on her when I arrived and she is pleased with the progress Gracie is making. Gracie has been eating and the Emergency Vet told me that Gracie prefers to have her food warmed a bit in the microwave ,so Gracie’s communication skills are good.

I then met with the Internal Medicine Vet, who while I was waiting for what seemed to be forever was examining Gracie. She is also pleased with the progress. She covered the treatment plan for Gracie and she will take more xrays today to help determine the actual progress, but overall she was pleased too. The main thing is to try to not stress Gracie too much at this point so that her breathing isn’t impacted by what they are doing to treat her.

As too the others, Precious and Dolly are still sneezing, Sascha not so much. Brian seemed worse so his Mom took him to our regular Vet this morning to get xrays done on him to make sure all was okay with his lungs, and they were clear. Brian is still sneezing but had a hacking cough last night.

Thanks so much for all of the support, we appreciate you so much. Keep those purrs and prayers coming, we are guardedly hopeful that they are working.

  39. Go Gracie! Maybe the rest of the crew needs some antihistamine pills hidden in pill pockets… I won’t tell if you don’t! It’s hard on lungs when heat comes on even though everybody loves those warm spots.

    This is wonderful news! I loved hearing about those head butts ! I’m so glad she has a treatment plan and the doctor is pleased with her progress. I’ve been praying for her.

  60. Angel Abby says:

    Dad Terry
    Just got in and first thing I wanted to check on Gracie. I am so glad things are improving that is really wonderful news. Now you can exhale. Things are going a lot better for everyone, we hope. By that I mean I hope Brian’s Vet trip went well. We know you and Mom are exhausted beyond words. So we hope that this marks the start of great improvement for everyone. FYI just in case you wish to consider it for Gracie’s asthma, you can have a 02 tent at home. We did that for Abby but of course it was too late for her, but it may be a Godsend for Gracie.

  61. I’m just a little teary with the cautiously good news. You know my prayers are coming right at you and the crew!

    xx Trish

  62. Katie Isabella says:

    Thank you my dear friend. xox

  64. Great news! We hope everyone is better soon!!

  66. Cathy Keisha says:

  73. emma says:

    We are so happy she seems to be doing better! Because I am a dog and I would probably stress her out, I will stay away, but send her my get well wishes, and to the other kitties too. It sounds like when we adopted our two current cats…about a week later, our other cat at the time, the new cats and us dogs were so sick it wasn’t funny, but we got over it, so I bet they will too and Gracie will keep fighting!

  74. Jacqueline says:
