Thankful Thursday


We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Brody is thankful that he is still spry enough to climb the grandfather clock.

I am thankful Emmy was able to see the internist. She has pancreatitis. She has had that in the past, so I wanted to get her checked right away before it got out of hand. There is no treatment for it, but fluids are usually given which can’t be done with her congestive heart failure. She has a probiotic, pain meds, anti-nausea meds and the Miritaz to stimulate her appetite. I keep syringing water into her mouth to be sure she gets enough fluids ad I was told to hold off on the Lasix for now. She will get a recheck on Monday. I am thankful she is such a good traveler and a good patient.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

  1. Pancreatitis is awful to deal with…we send many pawyers and POOTP at this time. Glad you were able to get her seen by the specialist, and hope there will be steady improvement.

    Brody is an acrobatic athletic rascal! Our Opa, who was a clock maker…would not have been amused, LOL!

    1. Thank you. It is hard to deal with.
      Brody’s dad would have been mad if he had caught him doing it. 🙂 XO

  2. Brody is quite the climber! Sorry that Emmy has pancreatitis, purrs for her recovery. We did get our diabetic kitty Minx through an episode of pancreatitis. XO

    1. Thank you. I am glad you were able to get Minx through it. It gives me hope we can get Emmy through despite her kidney and heart failure. XO

  3. Oh, Emmy, our hearts go out to you, you sweet kitty and hope you are not in too much pain and that your meds work. So sorry for your troubles, little Emmy.

  4. Brody you are way high up!! Could you get down alone. Angel Madi always managed to get up on ours but evidently forgot how to get down. Hugs Emmy

  5. Brody did a great job getting up that high.

    Prayers and healing hugs to sweet Emmy.

    I’m all ready for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Thank you for co-hosting.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. xo ♥

  6. Charlee: “We’re glad you have a diagnosis for Emmy. We send lots of purrs for her to feel better!”
    Lulu: “And we dogs send tail wags!”
    Chaplin: “Hey, Brody, I too like to get up on top of the grandfather clock here. It’s a nice view from up there, isn’t it?”

  7. That’s some nice climbing Brody. I’m glad you got Emmy in and we’re all sending purrs and prayer to that beautiful sweetie. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  8. I’m glad she can still climb up the clock. That’s a little too high for my kitty, Luna I hope Emmy feels better.

    1. Brody is the only ho can, I just hope he doesn’t get the newbies doing it. 🙂

  9. I’m glad to hear you know what you’re dealing with, now, but I wish it was more treatable. You’re taking good care of her.
