Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: My Unremarkable Blood Work Results

thankful thursday blog hop brian 07292021

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am always thankful to each of you for joining us! Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today I’m thankful for you and all the well wishes you sent my way, I love you too, I really do. It’s nice to have made so many good blogging friends throughout the years. Y’all really do mean the world to me. I’m still not eating like I should but the Dad is feeding me so I get my calories for the day. Oh guess what else? Our regular Vet is allowing one pet parent in so the Dad got to go in with me on Monday.

The Dad got the results from my blood work and as our wonderful Vet said, they were “unremarkable”, which is the technical term for pretty normal. Our Vet was really worried about my kidneys but the kidney numbers were just fine. So, there were no real answers in the blood work.

The next step is an appointment with our Internal Medicine Vet. Our regular Vet made the referral for us and they are typically 3-4 months out on appointments. My Dad was able to get me an appointment for August 24th, which is amazing. I’ll have to have an ultrasound to see if the EVIL-C is hiding in there somewhere. We’ll try to keep posted along this journey, thanks for being here with me. Oh yea, the Dad will be able to go in with me at the Internal Medicine Vet.

As I said earlier, I’m really thankful for you and I’m really thankful for our caring regular Vet, she’s a special one. So what are you thankful for today??? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Brian, I’m glad your blood work was normal but sorry that there aren’t any answers yet. Good thing you’re going to see the IM vet. Let’s not think about that C thing just yet though.

Brian, we sure are glad your blood results are unremarkable. Now you just need to try and eat, okay? And we’re definitely hoping that c thing can be ruled out soon. XO

Usually, tests like these are welcome, but when a kitty isn’t well, it’s frustrating! My human has been through that and it makes her crazy. I hope you either get better soon, or that there are some answers at your next visit, Brian. I’m sending more purrs your way.

It’s good that your bloodwork is fine, but sad that there was no answer to your feeling poorly.
I do hope it is not the evil C!! I will continue to give you BIG purrs!

Dear Brian, I’m glad that your blood work came back as “unremarkable” but rest assured that you are in our prayers as we are quite concerned about you! We know you are in good care with Papa Terry looking after you though. Rest up and grow strong. We love you and you look SO sweet in today’s photo! xoxo

Glad your tests were “unremarkable” but hoping they STAY THAT WAY. No Evil-C allowed! Rest up from your vet visit – they can be exhausting!

We are happy to hear you cleared the first tests without any problems. Our vet lets our mom come in with us and it is so much better. Going to the vet is so scary and then without her it was so much scarier. Glad you dad can go with you.

now that’s what we want to hear unless there is something wrong tests can’t show I guess, which is what happened with my back. We had a poodle who had routine bloodwork for a surgery and turned up gall bladder issues. Meds helped. It’s a relief to go in with the cats isn’t it?

Laila and Angel Minchie

We are thankful for your unremarkable blood work results! You are still in our purrs and prayers, sweet Brian.

Brian…..’unremarkable’ is not a word I’d use to describe your handsome sweetness; however, I will accept it in lab work.
Maybe the heat is messin’ with your appetite. You and your sibs and humans remain in my purrs

We’re so glad your Dad can go in with you now. That’s good news on your bloodwork but I know it’s still concerning that you are not feeling yourself. We hope you can get answers soon. We will continue to pray for you, Brian!♥

I am glad the bloods came back okay. My girl, Chiana, is going into for dental in August and will be getting an ultrasound too. She has lost a lot of weight but still eating okay and acting normal. They did her tests last month and all was fine. The vet thinks it might be her gingivitis giving her issues, so getting a few teefs out.

Brian, a normal blood work is a good start. I hope you’ll soon get your appetite back and that your other tests will be normal also. 

Ivan and Izzy from WMD

This is good news about your blood work and kidneys, Brian. Try not to worry about upcoming appointment, though. We’re hoping maybe it’s just the heat is affecting your appetite. Keep your whiskers up!

I’m thankful for your test results but don’t like hearing the evil C-word. TW says cats don’t get side effects from chemo like she has but I don’t want to see you suffer at all. Sending more love and healing purrz. Oh, I don’t eat a lot during the hot weather either.
