    Very bad weekend indeed!

    Tootsie, my son's service dog, is in the hospital with an acute kidney failure. We are all keeping our fingers crossed that it was caused by an infection. My son is a mess. For those who pray, please pray for our Toots. My son (20) is not doing well at all.

    Our old man, Henry, is an 18 year old cat. When we pick Tootsie up from the animal hospital and take her to our regular vet we'll have to take Henry. He's crying a lot and loosing weight again. She's been vomiting more...sometimes food, sometimes bile. He's a very old man and, while I just want to cry, he does not deserve this. He's obviously got some dementia going on too. It's funny because the dementia has made him a friendlier cat but....I love my boy and I know he doesn't feel well.

    Tootsie is a service dog and not really a pet. The vet hospital called first thing this morning and said that she could come home. She went back this evening for more fluids and another antibiotic shot. Hopefully, they will find out why this happened. We're hoping this was caused by an infection so that it can be cured and go away!

    Joshie, has Henry (the cat), be tested for hyperthyroidism? I ask because our old girl, Coonie, 17, was losing weight, vomiting and showing signs of dementia too. Was tested for hyperthyroidism, positive, put on daily meds 2 x's a day and we occasionally use a paste for hair balls. Gained weight, was clearer of mind and stopped vomiting.

    It's so difficult when our beloved pets/companions age and show signs of slipping away from us. Hope it's nothing too serious with your Henry.

    Keeping your son and Tootsie in my prayers. Hope everything keeps looking up.

    We put Henry down. He was a bag of bones. He cried. I just could not rationalize letting this go on. I miss my beloved and faithful companion.
