ICU Update

PATTY:  We were able to visit Bhu today and it was quite comforting to be able to see him and touch him.  The ICU is a noisy place and he was the only feline there.

He has some very impressive medical bling to which he is attached and while we visited he was intently grooming himself.  I guess he knew Poppy was going to take his picture!

But the story is not so rosey.  Bhu has severe diabetes, severe kidney damage, and certain heart damage of unknown severity.   He will be there for at least two or three more days while they perform additional tests and attempt various treatments.  But, it's only a matter of time.

 
"Hey, mom, that's some amazing static in your hair!"
We'd like to bring him home, but the doctor tells us if that happens he will need a feeding tube and he will have to wear a collar to keep the tube in place and possibly a cone.  He will need insulin twice a day and who knows what else.  But, in the meantime, we can visit him every day and see how he is progressing.   Bhu is an amazing boy and I wouldn't put it past him to rally and get better. 

Your good wishes help a lot!  Purray if you can; we would do the same for you!  xoxo

Bhu, you have my love and prayers. Of course you would pray for me if I were ill. Mom and me, we've got your back sweet boy. XXX
