Georgie Update


 Thank you all for the purrs, comments and graphics for Georgie.  She is still with us but has a long road ahead. When the internal medicine specialist did blood work, she found her liver enzymes high and in the untrasound, Georgie's liver was enlarged.  The vet asked to do a needle aspirate to find out if it was liver disease or cancer.  I took this photo above, thinking it may be the last time I saw her sweet face. 

My husband and I had decided that if it was cancer (most likely lymphoma) we would not pursue any treatment. If it was a liver disease then we would go ahead with a feeding tube and continue the treatment..  It was so very upsetting to leave her there not knowing what the outcome would be.  We kissed her goodbye and went home feeling very sad and helpless.  As we pulled into our town, the most beautiful rainbow appeared in front of us with both ends visible!  Don and I chased the rainbow in the car like two kids on a scavenger hunt, looking for the pot of gold.  I took it as a good sign for Georgie.


We got the call from the vet saying that it was fatty liver disease and that she did put the feeding tube in.  Georgie will be monitored at the vet for as long as it takes to get all her blood values up to normal.  Then she can come home with us, using the feeding tube until she eats on her own.  Her being diabetic complicates this even more but we are up for the challenge.

We are very hopeful that she will recover as she is only 9 years old and has much of her life left to live.  Our bills have accumulated substantially and we have set up a  page to help us.  Even a dollar from each of our readers helps us tremendously!  With 17 other senior cats, many with special medical needs, this expense, however worth it,  puts us in the hole for the others.

We just donated and shared. The rainbow is a sign of good luck for sure.
9 is much too young to lose a kitty. Cody will be 9 next year, I cannot imagine how we would feel.
I also know how the vet bills add up. You are right, if every person donated $1 that would be a HUGE help!!!

Sending purrs and prayers

We're sending lots of hugs and purrs your way. I lost a newly adopted cat to fatty liver disease. I'd only had him about 10 days. He was a big fat cat and the rescue was unaware he wasn't eating. I know you still have a battle on your hands. Wishing you and sweet Georgie the best.

Georgia and Julie said...

We send purrs to Georgie.
While this is serious, it is better than cancer.
We will keep sending until Georgie is well again.
Purrs Georgia and Julie,
Treasure and JJ
