Awww Mondays: Chipper and His Sickie Ordeal

awww mondays chipper 01 06032024

Hello everyone, it’s me, the Chipper. I didn’t have the bestest of weekends, no I sure didn’t. I had the big case of the sickies. This is a photo of me before I got really sick. I got stuffed in the carrier Saturday and off to the emergency place we went. I had a bad case of the projectile barfs and I wasn’t wanting to eat my foods. I always eat good and it stays down so something was wrong.

I had to spend the night in the hospital. Talk about no fun, it was pretty scary too, but the Vets and the Techs took really good care of me. I muchly improved and got to come back home late yesterday morning. I sure am glad to be home. I’ll let Dad update you from here.

Dad Terry here. Chipper had a horrible infection that was affecting his GI Tract and his white blood cell count was horribly low. He spent the night at the hospital on IV antibiotics plus a few other meds. Sunday morning the Vet said he was greatly improved and he was now generating white blood cells like he should again. I picked him up mid-morning yesterday and he sure was glad to get home. His pals sure missed him and he missed them too. We are unsure of the cause of the infection as there could have been quite a number of things that caused it. So, we’re hoping and praying that this ordeal is behind him now. That’s it for the Chipper update.

Oh my Chipper, that was a very nasty experience for you and the entire family—quite a scare.
That picture with the IV in your arm must have been painful for your tiny self.

That had to be very scary for such a tiny kitten this he is now. Maybe something was incubating in him from his time outside. I certainly hope it doesn’t reoccur.

He is so tiny and adorable. We sure hope he stays on the mend and keeps growing and doing well. Of course, as always, these nasty things always happen on weekends!

I wonder if it is, as Precious mentioned, something that was incubating from out of doors. But whatever it was, may this be the END of that ordeal for Chipper and for you too.

Chaplin: “Oh no! Poor Chipper! We hate an infection!”
Charlee: “And we hate having to be rushed to the vet!”
Chaplin: “We’re glad you’re home now and doing better!”
Java Bean: “Sí, I started throwing up a few days after I got bitten by the snake, so it was back to the emergency vet for me! They couldn’t find anything wrong, though, so they gave me some medicine for the sickies and I felt better the next day. But I was so scared being back at the emergency vet, I was afraid I would have to stay overnight again!”

Chipper, we are all so sorry you got so very sick! But we’re really, really glad you’re ok now. A lot of our blogging buddies got sick this past weekend, or just got around to telling us all that they had been sick not long ago. Even our Riley had a bad case of the squirts all day on Sunday. (I’m glad me and Mommy weren’t there!) XOX Xena
