It was nice to hear from you guys. Thanks for all the paws and cheers.

The vet did feel that Gracie's BG was ok for her. I was concerned, but she said that 200-400 or more is high, and I had just driven her in the car after a fuzzy rub-down for at least 30 minutes, so she was excited. This can cause a reading to be higher, too.

I'm sooo glad her kidneys are doing well. There are no outward signs that the liver is challenged, but they gave her some chewables to help. I need to do my research on them to know more.

Anyway...kitties are telling me it's bedtime! Thanks!

Hi Lisa and Gracie,

Oh, that pic is so cute!

Nice BG number! I hope Gracie's numbers stay low enough that you don't have to give insulin. And kidneys doing well, too - good news all around! :banana:

Miss Gracie is hanging in there. I can tell that the recent SoCal fires have lowered our air quality and raised the heat. We don't have air-conditioning, so the kitties get air from outside via a fan. Normally that's fine, but it seems to be dehydrating Howie & Gracie. They're drinking loads of water, and I turn ultra-paranoid that they are becoming diabetic again! I'd drink extra water too if I was wearing a fur coat in 90 degree heat...

I hope all the kitties in our area are staying cool :cool026: and healthy.

Goodnight to all of you and them...

Hi Lisa,

We just found Gracie's thread. I'm so glad to hear her BG and kidneys are doing so well. :cool026: She really is a beautiful baby, and they way you got her was :waycool: (going to visit a baby and coming home with your own :lol: .

Anyway... Mike and I just want to let you know you are in our hearts and prayers. And we know that with the love you have for your babies... all will remain well.

Try to stay cool with that heat.

Blessings,

Mike & Mike's Mom (Joanna)

I have been keeping tabs on Gracie all along. Thought I would post today so you know that I have been keeping you in my prayers. I lost my Moody cat to chronic renal failure, but he was 27 years old. How is that for getting up there. It is a hard thing to handle, but it sounds like you are the perfect mom for little Gracie. T

Hope little Gracie, Howie,a nd you continue to thrive. Stay cool and know that we are pulling for you. I am keeping you in my prayers and Jack sends great big Husky hugs to Gracie even if she doesn't want them. :dogsled::dogsled: He love kitties but they don't always love him.

Love,

Debbie and Jack

Jack sounds like a love...I'm sure Gracie would like it. She's never met a dog, but she hears them bark in the complex.

Thanks for all the prayers. I love coming home to her each day, and seeing that she's fine. If she could live as long as Moody, I'd be the happiest mom, EVER!!!

All the best,

Lisa

That photo of Howie using Gracie as a comfy furry bed just cracks me up! Please give both kitties some scritches from me.

Thanks to Lisa Buckley for sending us the Purina K/D food. Gracie loves the chicken flavor, and we really appreciate it.

Ironically, my daughter's last name is Buckley, and my first name is Lisa. We felt this was a neat coincidence.

Gracie is great...she is soooo cuddly. Just before I gave her the sub-q fluids tonight for her CRF, I saw her little face in the mirror and her little paw over my shoulder, and I was overcome with tears and how much I love her. I was so close to losing her a few months ago, and now she seems healthy and happy. I know her kidneys can't reverse their damage, but she's a trooper.

Thanks for your note...it means alot that you and Jack care (and all the other awesome IMOM cheerleaders).

All the best,

Miss Gracie seems to be doing fine. We will go to the vet on Saturday, Nov. 17th to have her CRF monitored. She has some liver complications that may be improving due to her new chewables, so hopefully the full bloodwork test will tell.

High paws to all...

Hi Cheerleaders :banana:

Laurie just gave us some amazing news! Gracie received a one-time donation for $978. Whoever this wonderful donor is, we cannot thank you enough. Gracie is now covered for a full 7 months of her CRF monitoring and meds. She is doing so well, and this is an answer to a prayer. We plan to keep her around many more years, and keeping her healthy is the way to do it.

I'm not sure I'll know who the generous donor is, but they are truly appreciated.

From Gracie and her gang - Howie, Mommy, Payton & Teddy (the fish)

:thanks3:

:banana::banana::banana:OMG!!! THANK YOU ANGEL!![/ :banana::banana::banana:

See Lisa... MIRACLES DO HAPPEN AT IMOM!!!! What blessings we've all found here. Not only with donations (WHICH IS TRULY MIRACULOUS) but with the friendship and love we've all found.

I'm really sorry I haven't been here for a while... but I am sooooooooooo glad I stopped in today to hear the GREAT NEWS!!!! :aktion033::happydance:

Give Miss Gracie :hugs: from me and Mike... AND.... WE WANT TO SEND OUT BUNCHES OF :hugs: to the angel who donated for such a precious little girl!!!! God Bless You!!!!

Much Love, Blessings & Nose Kisses,

Mike & Mike's Mom (Joanna)

Gracie is fine. Her CRF values were stable. The doctor needs to still give us the Blood Glucose levels, and let us know about her liver, but all seems well.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
