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.
