Okay, now my request for prayers has turned to a plea for help!  See below what 
is going on with Cole tonight.  Now he is throwing up white bubbly phlem 
besides refusing to eat.  I am getting so worried about him.  How can he go 
from playing, happy, eating, etc; to not eating anything and throwing up so 
quickly!  I don't know who to turn to, what to do, or which vet to go to (Dr 
Dill--our caring 50year experienced vet that tends to do things the more old 
fashioned way, Allgood Vet in Burlington that we just started seeing sometimes 
for blood tests so I am not sure how experienced they are with feline leukemia 
or take him to the 24 hour 7 day a week emergency in Iowa City that wasn't able 
to help Tig, although he may have been to far along for any help, but they are 
very expensive and I am not sure how much more vet bills I can afford) ; and I 
am so scared for Cole.  I have already lost Tig and so quickly----I just can't 
loose Cole now too so
 soon.  I hope to be more proactive with Cole and nip this in the bud before it 
takes over and the leukemia kicks in full force---I so want to give him a few 
more happy years that he so deserves.  Anyone have any ideas?  I am so not good 
at this and need help.  I worry that I should have been doing more already, but 
they all seemed to be doing pretty good so I hated to be pumping a bunch of 
medicine into them before they needed it---but guess this is where I failed.  
When Ash got some scabs scratched off and was bleeding, I took him to the vet 
for medicine so he would not get infection.  But if they were doing good I 
thought all I needed to do was make sure they got a good balanced diet and 
love.  Many of you talk of inferion, but that sure didn't seem to help Tig at 
all---it actually seem to make him worse faster, so I guess I am afraid of 
that.  But I am so very worried about Cole and would really appreciate hearing 
your suggestions  My email
 is harshbargerka...@yahoo.com for those of you that don't have it.  Thanks,

Just need some prayers tonight for Cole.  He tested positive along with his 
brothers for feline leukemia about 3 months ago.  The have all been doing 
pretty good, eating well, playing, happy and loving, etc.  But then two of his 
brothers started having problems with scab like bumps and the vet doesn't seem 
to know what it is.  Now Cole refused to eat his supper tonight and I am so 
worried for him and his brothers.  They are due for their second test in about 
a week.  They were doing so good I was hoping that they would test negative and 
was able to fight their exposure.  But now with this I am so afraid for them.  
And not eating is the worst, cause I am so afraid he won't start eating again.  
Please say a prayer for him that it is just a little normal stomach upset and 
tomorrow he will clean his plate at breakfast.
