Thankful Thursday

We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.I am thankful that Joanie’s bloodwork was good. Also thankful that Emmy’s appointment with the internist wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. She is very thin and I feared the vet would think it was time to say goodbye.  The good news is there was no fluid by her heart, the bad news is her kidney values are worse. We are going to try less of the diuretic, and she has a different phosphorous binder to try. Please keep my sweet girl in your prayers.

And Emmy is happy that her Dad bought a new table for her to stand on. When she gets hungry, she stands on his tv tray, but it is wobbly and she fell off of it today. Luckily, she landed on her feet. He went right to Walmart after that and bought a sturdy table so that won’t happen again.


Sorry, I skipped the poem this week. My mind was preoccupied with worrying about Emmy.

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. I’m so glad Joanie’s test results were good. Hoping and purring here that Emmy’s change of medication will help her. XO

  2. Oh, you can’t know how happy we are for Emmy and hope so, so much that her little body will get stronger. I know it’s hard when a kitty is older and I’m sure Emmy knows how much you love her. And we are so glad about Joanie’s bloodwork. HURRAH.

  3. Good to hear Joanie is doing okay and I’m sorry to hear about Emmy, she’s in my prayers too 🍀😻

  4. All things considered I’d say Emmy got a pretty good report – she’s hanging in there because she WANTS to stay and that’s super important! How nice that her Dad got her a special table to stand on so she can be by her Dad AND get her snacks too!

    Hugs, Teddy

  5. I am glad there was no fluid around Emmy’s heart and hope her kidney values can improve by lowering the diuretic. Good news for Joanie’s blood results!

  6. That’s good news for Joanie and we’re sending non-stop purrs and prayers for sweetest Emmy, we’re Emmy fans here. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  7. Mostly good news about Emmy and I am happy that there was no fluid around her heart. I hope they can tweak her meds and keep her being happy to eat on her new table♥ Very good news about Joanie♥ Prayers for Emmy and for you, Ellen. It’s hard to not worry about her.

    1. Thank you. It is hard not to worry, but I just read a book- The Only Prayer You Will Ever Need and I keep saying it- Please heal my fear-based thoughts. Worrying about losing her is definitely a fear. XO
