Riley Andrew

Riley Update
Friday noon
He has had his second x ray
They've given him a barium enema
(sorry for the details)
Going to give another x ray
in two hours
His blood work shows a
very high white cell count
I was told he's doing ok
Basically, they are still trying
 to figure out what's wrong
 I don't think they will
do any surgery today
(there was talk yesterday
of doing exploratory surgery)
Just wish they knew
what was wrong

Today I took my baby,
Riley Andrew,
into the vet.
He did not get up today.
He slept on the couch.
Did not move.
His fur looks different.
They got him in late afternoon.
Took blood work.
He hissed & growled
 which he has never done before.
Tomorrow, I take him right back in
For x rays and results
I'm hoping for good news
Only I think it might be bad
They weighed him
 and he has lost weight

What did I miss ?

I just knew something was wrong
A Mom knows these things

If you could all keep him in your thoughts
He's only three years old
He is my baby
And, I am very worried

I'll know a lot more tomorrow ...

We are sending super strong purrayers to Riley! Please keep us posted!!! We believe his results will come back ok and maybe he just has allergies.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
