Selfie Sunday: Buddy with an Update


We joinin da The Cat on my Head Sunday Selfies Blog Hop 

Hi frenz. Yoo all bin purrin and woofin fur me ah knowz cuz ah can feelz it. Ah sendin thanky thanks ta ya. Ah azkin Dad ta giv ya an updater even thoed ah waz da one goed ta da Vetz. MOL

Hi, Dad Pete here. As many of you know Buddy had not been feeling well and his appetite had dropped off. Back on Feb 18th he had an ultrasound that showed what was thought to be cancer. He had a Cerenia and Depomederol shot on the 19th and another Depo on March 4th as conservative  treatment. He rallied so well I decided to hold the shots and start Triamcinolone. We have never looked back. 
He just had another ultrasound, more for my peace of mind than anything. His vet is really great and she said she hardly recognized him. He still has something going on with his pancreas, bowels and lymph but she says cats can have low grade inflammations that just hang in there. As long as he is not symptomatic we will stay the course. Oh yes, he has gained 2.5 pounds, Wow!
Buddy is happier than he has been in years. He plays with me and by himself more than the other furs. Kind of funny the old guy being so active and the younger cats watching him run around.
Thanks for your prayers, purrs and woofs. I know they help and they sure helped me weather the darker days.
We may not have years but we have a wonderful relationship and, best of all, Buddy is enjoying life. Thanks!

So ther tiz. Ah glad ya thinkin uf me

Dis Selfiez fur you Kali
