Hello everyone, I wanted to share some crew updates and then tell you about sweet Gracie.

Brian is doing pretty good, still eating great, still on meds, and only an occasional sneeze every once in a while.  Brian even played some last night and he looks so much more comfy now.

Precious has made some great progress in the last 24 hrs.  Today is the first time in a while that she has eaten totally on her own, breakfast and dinner.  She also ate her treats I left out for her last night (she gets special hip+joint treats from Vermont Naturals) and she hasn’t eaten those since she has been sick. She also was scratching on her snail scratcher and she hasn’t done that for a week.

Now for sweet Gracie!  The specialists have special visiting hours on the weekends, from 8:00 to 9:00 AM EST.  I was there promptly at 8:00 to see our girl.  Gracie looks great!  Want to see????  Okay, her you go…

gracievisit02a copy Yes indeed, she looks like our Gracie once again.  No cone.  She is off the IV antibiotics and on oral antibiotics now and is doing great on her 2nd day out of the oxygen cage.  She had eaten good overnight too.  I took her special comb with me and she got a great combing and purred and talked to me the whole time.  The plan is to see how well she tolerates the oral meds and then we can discuss the “H” word.

It was a great visit.  Usually I’ve only been able to spend about 20 minutes with her each visit but today I got to visit with her for about an hour and a half.

Thanks once again for all the purrs, woofs and prayers, and keep them rolling our way please.

    Seeing Gracie’s most precious and beautiful face and thinking of you sitting and brushing her and talking to her for the entire visiting time is making my eyes leak! She looks MEOWVELOUS and I couldn’t be happier to read this!!
    I am so glad that Brian is making great progress and Precious too!
    It’s the POWER OF THE PURR!!

    The Human and I gotted a little leaky-eyed seeing her sitting up with those round eyes looking so alert and perky and healthy again. There have been so many sad endings around the blog world lately that Gracie’s fantastic recovery feels extra-wonderful! It will be so good to see her home again with her family!

    And hurray for Brian and Precious too! Mom and Dad probably need a spa weekend themselves just to recover from all the caretaking!

    Tears are streaming down our eyes… Mine, Marc’s and Lucy’s. Marc just grabbed a tissue! We are so happy about precious and Brian. But Gracie… We are beyond thrilled, especially seeing her Alex heart. We know that he has been with his wife every step of the way. And while he loves her more than words can say he wasn’t ready to be with her yet… He too is purring from happiness… We love you all!
