Update on @AdmiralHestorb and Admiral's mom.

Hi pals,

Here's another update on Admiral's health and also Admiral's mom.   M talked to her earlier this evening and she dictated this for me to post.

"I have not eaten my pill for the past 5 days - no matter how mom tried to disguise it.  I refused because our routine was all upset  and mom lumbering around with a huge scary cast on her leg scared me into hiding.  Today, because mom was getting ready to go to the human vet in the big PTU, mom didn’t have time to chase me around to get me to eat my “treat.”  So, since she had to be carried to the human vet, she just prepared my treat and left it for me between my water bowl and food bowl.  Several hours later, she came home and discovered I had eaten my treat.  I think mom was very happy cuz she told her friend that I had eaten it.  

I told mom if she didn’t leave me alone and stop chasing me and trying to cram that down my throat I would throttle her in the night while she slept or at least smother her by lying on her face. I think she got the message too.

Now about mom:

Mom’s vet said that she had an infection at the knee cap area, and he was alarmed at the swelling, so he ordered an xRay, which mom will have to take to the orthopedist on Friday. It must still hurt her sometimes because she'll say OUCH out loud! Oh, he also put her on an antibiotic, whatever that is.

That's the news from us


Mario here:    Admiral has told me, and Admiral's mom has told M, how much they appreciate all the thoughts, prayer, comments and tweets of well wishes, etc, coming from  Twitter and the blogger worlds.   Typing is still very hard for her to do and has to be done with one finger.   So keep them coming pals, your comments and well wishes are the highlight of their day.     If you have the time, please go over to Admiral's blog and leave comments there.  If no time, you can leave them here and I'll tell Admiral to check over here.   http://admiral-hestorb.blogspot.com/

Thanks pals,

TW is glad Admiral's Mom went to the Vet and I'm glad Admiral took her pill. We'll keep the #pawcircle going and keep remembering them. TW homes that knee isn't broken too.

Thanks for the update Mario. We are so glad to hear Admiral ate her "treat" today. And we are purring for her mom and hope she heals quickly.

Thank you so much for the update! We hope that Miss Admiral keeps up her nursing duties and makes sure she has her OWN medicine, too.

We are purring for the both of them!

Sparkle said...

I am glad that Admiral finally took her meds! Not as happy about her human's knee - I hope that gets better soon! I will be purring for her.

Thanks Mario for sharing this with us. We will keep sending healing and comforting purrs to Admiral and her mom.

It is very helpful for you to take dictation from Admiral and her Mom. We posted on her blog, but will say it here too: we do hope the knee gets better and also suggested they don't worry to use any capital letters when doing the one finger typing.
Good Admira did eat her one pill. Here's to that continuing.

Does you have an address that we can send a happy card?

our mom has been tending to so many sick friends lately, and this one, dear Admiral's mum, well, this is just so terrible. We wish we could rush over and take care of Missie Admiral and her mum too!!

Mario you are such a wonderful kitty to keep us updated on Admiral and her Mommy...Cody and I are sending healing purrs to them both. I wish Admiral would take his meds!! Maybe his Mom can show her how it is done by taking her antibiotic with Admiral!

Ellen Whyte said...

Poor things! We're purring for them and hope the news on Friday is better.
