ER Trips and More!

As you know, mom got real sick. The last 2 weekends she had to spend time at the humans emergency place. This is what happened (in order). First, her temperature shot up to 101.3 and the home health peoples told her go to the hos pit tul ER and get checked out. They stole lots of mom's blood and pee, and made her spend the night so they had time to study them to make sure she was okay. The whole time she was there her temperature stayed down so they let her go home the next evening (and her temperature went back up, but not as high). Then she got a severe allergic reaction to her IV anti bio tics. She turned into one huge red itchy rash ALL OVER. It took all the doctor persons 2 weeks to figure this out. They immediately stopped those meds and put her on something new. However, the old bad meds were still in mom making her itchy rash get worse, and at the same time the new medicine made mom's stomach all sicky and puky on top of the itchy rash. So, mom ended up back in the ER place again for a few hours. Mom got so sick we thought she might be dying (for real). The good news is that now mom has had 2 shots that helped the itching and got 2 weeks of medicine to help the itching, PLUS 2 more kinds of medicine to help mom's stomach feel better. As of today, mom is finally starting to feel better and more like herself again. Another problem has been mom's foot has not wanted to heal much but we hope now that the rest of mom is better her foot will start healing faster. UPDATE: NOW MOM HAS DIARRHEA FOR 2 NIGHTS NOW AND WE DON'T KNOW WHAT'S CAUSING THIS.
Mom did read all your kind thoughts and well wishes (the only thing she had done on the computer), and wants to thank each and everyone for their kindness and caring. We love you all! Love, Beau (and mom)

Oh, Beau--you've really had a time of it, trying to get your Mom better. We think she needs a second CAT scan--so Chattie is on her way. Um, that is, as soon as she can get down from the "time out" chair.

She scans well, and is also good meds--her purrs are outstanding, and she will flump on your Mom and make sure she rests.

Both of you are in my thoughts and prayers. If there is anything else I can do from the "Other Coast," please let me know.

Purrs and love--Mumma Jan

Please pardon me for writing this in the comments section, But I don't have full access yet. I'm Cathy's sister, Teresa, and I regret to say that she's passed away. Some may know through facebook, but I'm sure i've missed others. A memorial service will be held Saturday, 9/24 at 11:00, with visitation at 10:00 at Belmont Methodist Church, Nashville, TN. To all of you Cathy would want me to thank you from the bottom of her heart for your love & support through the years. I thank you - and the rest of the family - thanks you, too. Beau misses her tremendously. The site will remain for a while. May the Lord bless you & keep you now and forever more.

It's so hard to think of you without your mom Cathy, Beau. We know you miss her and your life has changed in ways that are undoubtedly frightening. But we hope you and Miss Teresa can comfort one another. You each loved mom Cathy and miss her, so each of you has a little bit of her heart to share with the other. All her blogging friends hope you will be able to let us know now and again how you are adjusting and how you are doing.

Just a quick note for anyone who visits. After a couple false starts, Beau has relocated to the New Jersey area, and is settling in with Rose and the Royals.

We just thought someone ought to leave a link to Beau's new home.

The Lee County Clowder said...

For anyone who visits, Beau went to The Bridge a few days ago.

We thought someone ought to let people know that Beau & Cathy are together again.

Michele Duncan @Online PhD UK said...

It is sad to hear that your mother was so sick. Hopefully the diarrhea got under control along with all of the older problems, it can be hard sometimes. It is a great point that fifteen dogs and forty five cats are born for every human. It really puts the pet population crisis into perspective.
