Another Auntie Lori Update.............

Mama is so mad at the bean v-e-ts that she has smoke coming out of her ears!!! They never did get around to doing the lumbar puncture because one of the v-e-ts put Auntie Lori on a blood thinner & the v-e-t that does that sort of procedure said "No way, it's too dangerous until all of that drug is out of her system". Then the first v-e-t told Mama that they would not do surgery to relieve the pressure, that Auntie Lori would just have to watch her blood pressure & lose some more weight. Not that she(the v-e-t) is a neurologist, she's a GP.

Auntie Lori has lost around 45 to 50 lbs in the last 6 months & she just keeps getting sicker, so Mama is fit to be tied with this v-e-t & her solutions. Poor auntie can hardly walk or anything else because she's so weak, but this stupid v-e-t discharged her from the hospital today. She told her that the hospital was a "nice safety net" but she couldn't stay forever. This comment made Mama's blood pressure go through the roof!! So now, Auntie Lori has to go in as an out-patient for the lumbar puncture......sometime when the neurologist has time.

Our Uncle Phil says they better get their sh*t together this week or he's taking her to St. Louis where they have "real" bean v-e-ts. We think she should go to the v-e-t that saved Festus this summer, he knows way more than the bean v-e-ts.

Please continue to purr & purray for Auntie Lori......she needs all the help she can get.

We are still purring for your Auntie. It is so hard when the bean vets won't listen to their patients. They think they know best, and won't listen to anything else.

Those doctors do not seem like they are helping one little bit! I am still purring and purring for Auntie Lori.

Well, to be honest, Jan doesn't have anything good to say about human vets, so she's not surprised they can't get their act together. Unfortunately, this is not helping your Auntie Lori.

Between your mom smoking and your Uncle Phil raging, it must be pretty warm around your place. Can we come visit till Jan turns on the heat?

Seriously, we are sending some serious purrs and tail wags for your Auntie Lori.

We're sending tons of purrs, and we'll check to see if our super v-e-t could help, 'cause clearly the bean vets aren't doing much!

O dear! 50 pounds is a lot to lose. We're sorry Auntie Lori is going through all this with her doctors, and sending all our strongest get well wishes.

Thanks so much for thinking of me, too!

We are purrring and keeping Auntie close to our hearts.
Thank you, also, for the kind comments you left us earlier this week. It has been a very stressful time and the catblogosphere just makes it a little more bearable. I'm sure you know what I mean! Thank you.

Prayers for you all.

I hope Auntie Lori is doing okay. I think a second opinion is in order.

Sounds like Aunti Lori could use a second (or third (or fourth)) opinion from another, brighter bean V*T.

Purrrrrrring & purrrayering for her and her entire famibly.
