Some great Monday morning news from Michelle: Patches ate almost a whole can of A/D on her own over yesterday, in addition to the (reduced) tube feedings we gave her. She is going up and down the stairs, and right now is outside with Gray (she asked to go outside about an hour ago and has not wanted to come in). She's purring and bright, and started grooming herself. Almost unbelievable. Knock on wood a thousand times. I almost wrote yesterday to tell you, but am so superstitious and worried about communicating such good news, afraid it will stop. But it's not really fair to only write the bad news!
She does have diarrhea, but maybe just from eating so much after so long of reduced calories, and she's not really used to A/D (the internist insists it's ok for her pancreatitis, and she's on increased insulin, although her sugar values were down today so she got her normal dose this morning). And her breathing sounds funny sometimes, like wheezy or whistly, but it comes and goes and we think it is her nose, and it does not seem to bother her. She has a oncology appointment day after tomorrow, so we'll have it checked then if she's still doing it. So thank you for all your prayers and warm thoughts. And I know this is my mantra, but she has a lot going on and is not out of woods yet. But today is a blessing so far. Please let the list know. thanks, Michelle _____________________________________________________________________________ IRS CIRCULAR 230 NOTICE.
