Gracie Update on December 1st at 6:45pm

Dad Terry here. Just a quick update all.

Gracie did eat some on her own today. They gave her some lasix and she did a big pee and was breathing some easier.  They have her on IV antibiotics and she is still in oxygen. If she hangs in there they will transfer her to Upstate Specialists (an internal medicine specialist) in the morning so she can remain on oxygen and continue treatment.  When they called in the middle of the night last night they really didn’t expect her to make it through the night,  but she did.

I just spoke with a Vet Tech a few minutes ago and the message from the Dr. is that she thought that Gracie looked a little better. Her respiration rate was 50 this morning and is now at 30, so that means her breathing is improved.  Sweet Gracie has such a long way to go but we will take any bit of good news at this point.

I will go down to sign the paperwork for the transfer to the specialist care early in the morning and will take her some of her favorite food.  Please keep the purrs and prayers coming.

p.s.  Brian and Precious are sneezing like crazy.  Sascha hasn’t been sneezing as much.  All three are still on meds.

We are still purring hard. In fact, I hardly left the Woman’s lap so she could pet me and keep the motors going! A great big old rumbly purr because we want Sister Gracie to keep getting better. We are thankful for the positive update.

Oh dear Terry,
We are praying much for dear sweet Gracie. We also hope you are getting some rest and sleep so you can be strong for your fur babies.

Well, this is really good news! I truly believe that all that purring is having a pawsitive effect on Gracie. She can feel the love coming her way. We’re revving ups the purrs for Gracie to recover quickly — she’s made a remarkable turnaround already.

And our purrs go out to Brian and Precious, too. That is some horrible bug you have going around your house.

Dante is winging his way there to comfort Sascha, too. Some cuddling never hurts, either.
