: Good morning my friends! I'm at my Bridge mansion and
: I'm about ready to start exploring the place. I
: apologize for surprising you all with this news.
: I've been very, very sick. I don't know if you all
: will remember this, but back at the end of December
: and into January I lost a lot of weight. I had a UTI,
: but the big issue was with my liver. I went on two
: types of antibiotics and a liver supplement. The UTI
: cleared up and I started gaining weight. Soon I went
: from 9 lbs. back to my regular weight of 13 lbs.
: I was doing very well until a few weeks ago. I started
: losing weight and I was back down to 9 lbs. A full
: blood panel was done, and it showed that my liver was
: acting up again, but this time it was worse. I spent
: last week taking those two antibiotics again, but they
: weren't helping me at all. I spent most of my time
: either sleeping on the foot of the bed, or hiding
: under the bed. I stopped eating. I stopped drinking
: water. I didn't want to cuddle with mom either.
: Mom made an appointment with my vet for 8:30 this
: morning. Last night I came into the living room and
: jumped onto the foot of the recliner. I laid across
: mom's legs and told her I was ready to go. Mom still
: wasn't 100% sure until she took me in to see Dr. Green
: this morning. I had lost more weight, and the whites
: of my eyes had a slight yellow tint. The lining of my
: ears were also yellow. Mom knew then that I was right.
: Dr. Green gave me a shot of medicine so I would relax.
: Mom held me, and talked to me, and she cried into my
: fur. When Dr. Green came back, she helped me across
: the Bridge. Mom stroked my head and whispered how much
: she loved me.
: Once I'm settled into my Mansion, I want to have the
: biggest party ever!
