Easy Like Sunday Morning & Update

Dragonheart & Merlin: This is a scrapbook page our mom made of the two of us snuggling together. This photo was taken on New Year's Day, before Dragonheart became ill.

Dragonheart: Update on me: Thank you everyone for your positive thoughts, your purrs and your prayers. We all greatly appreciate them. I am doing much better. My temperature is back to normal, I am eating, drinking, using the litterbox, running around, and playing a little bit. I am very happy to have the IV port out of my arm. It didn't bother me too much, but it was a little odd having it there. Every so often, I would try to shake it off. The vet had a bit of a challenge taking it off, since the tape adhered really well to my Sphynx skin! I am taking my antibiotics like a good boy. The two nice lady vets at the vet practice, the various veterinary technicians, and my humans have all taken very good care of me. The vet told us that with fevers as high as I had, things can go downhill very quickly, so they are all very happy that I improved so quickly and am doing so well. She thinks that I probably picked up an infection that Merlin brought with him, but that didn't affect him. Whatever it was, I'm just glad I'm doing better. Thanks again for all your good thoughts, prayers and purrs.

Such a sweet photo of the two of you! Dragonheart, I am so happy you feel better!

We are so glad you are doing well Dragonheart.We thought that maybe it was something that Merlin had brought with him, but he most likely has a natural immunity to that type of infection. It is something that happens sometimes when two apparently healthy cats are introduced to each other. One can be susceptible to something that the other has an inbuilt immunity to.We hope you continue to do well.
That is a lovely photo of you two together.You accepted each other very quickly, and we can see you love your new brother.

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

Behold the power of prayer...such a blessing to know you are doing better dearest brother. Happy Holy Three Kings day!
Love Peach

We're all SOOOOOO glad you're getting better, Dragonheart. There's not much worse than a sick kitty (or sick child-bean) to break one's heart.

Keep getting better and better...

We are all relieved to see that you are doing better. Infections are never fun, and that tape just sounds awful, but sometimes we have to go through the bad to get to the good.
