Another not-much udpate...


It's Grover.

Listen, thank you so very, very, very for your good wishes, prayers and all the info. Mom is so sorry she is so behind on email and promises to catch up soon!! We so appreciate you!

Late yesterday, Vito's fever dropped two points and we were very excited. He began eating and drinking again, though they still had him on IV fluids to be certain he stayed well-hydrated because he is on a cocktail of meds, including anti-inflammatories, antivirals and antibiotics. The hospital was unsure which drug may have brought the fever down, but they felt they were on the right track towards getting him well.

Then, at 2am his fever went back up to 105 and has remained steadily there. He is still eating some, still purring when they touch him and still on the IV fluids. As to diagnosis, they are leaning more towards FIP but still not able to be certain, as they hope he just has some bizarre virus that seems unresponsive to the cocktail of drugs.

They still will not let my mom see him and she is very frustrated. She considered showing up at the hospital anyway and demanding to see Vito...with me in tow. I'm tiny and stealth so she thought maybe I could Ninja my way in there and at least bring Vito a message and one of Piggy's sweaters so he could smell home. We still might do it. Piggy wants to come see his BFF (it's been very hard on him, he waits by the door for his BFF to come home), but he's so big and PINK and likes to gallump and I think he would just mess up my game.

To be continued...

oh we are so very sorry that your mom is not allowed to see Vito. Our the mom would just show up with whatever to bring him. She has been known to do that before. She should tell the dr's that Vito needs to see hims mom so that he knows that she still loves him - we kitties can get depressed being away from our moms!

We are so sorry to hear Vito's fever went back home. Poor guy!
We hope your mom is able to see him very soon! We think seeing her might help him get better quicker!

We're thinking of you guys and we wish they would let your Mom see Vito. We don't really like that they won't.

We certainly hope it is not FIP.

Purrs, Ray and Buzz

I think sneaking in is a great idea, Grover, but maybe you should use Piggy to run interference and distract
the guards.

My Mommeh came to visit me when I had to stay overnight from my bladder surgery - I hissed at her at first! Then I purred.

I hope it is good news that Vito started to get better before his relapse. I'm purring for him!

Discouraging news, that Vito's fever spiked again and your mom is still not allowed to go see him. We hope both things change soon. We want to see Vito well again.
