with much thanks and appreciation
me, Buzz, my mom and my Jim want to thank efurrybuddy for all of the nice thoughts and good wishes you've been sendin' our way - we all appreciate it lotz.
we're doin' okay. i hafta go back to the vet in a few weeks for more blood tests. i've been gettin' some special canned food to help my anemia go away and my mom & Jim think that i'm actin' a little "spunkier". i'm still kinda run down tho, 'cause efurry time i try to go #2 potty, i'm kinda "sick" (sorry - TMI). i'm takin' 2 pills and some special bacteria "goo" but nothin' is really helpin' right now. hopefully Dr. Wendy will have some ideas when we go for my blood tests.
Buzz had his dental surgery and they did hafta take his "Bucky from Get Fuzzy" fang out. they took another tooth too. even tho the surgery went well, Buzz is havin' a pretty hard time these days. he doesn't feel like eatin' much of anything anymore, and he's lost over 4 pounds. he had a very bad reaction to one of his meds and he couldn't stop shakin'. Dr. Wendy gave him some new meds 'cause he's got an infection in some sores on his lip. he's been takin' those drops for a lot of days, but his sores don't seem to be goin' away. my mom & Jim are takin' him back to the dr. tomorrow morning so hopefully they can get somethin' to help him feel better.
honestly (pleeeeze don't tell her i said this) i think my mom is doin' the worst of all of us. she's really worried 'cause me n' Buzz just aren't gettin' better. she keeps sayin' how skinny Buzz is and that he's shrinkin' efurry day. they can't even begin to start tryin' to fix his kidneys until he recovers from this. that's got my mom real upset and sad. when they got 'dopted by Buzz 6 years ago, the dr's couldn't guess his age, so my mom is real scared that he might older than she hoped. to try to cheer her up, i posted a picture of us watchin' tv together. i'm sittin' in my mom's lap with my tootsies stickin' up in the air, and Buzz is cuddled at her feet under the blankie. if ya look real close, you can see his head.

we're sorry that we haven't been postin' lately; we promise to be better 'bout givin' updates when we've got some news. thanks again efurrybuddy for all of thoughts & prayers; they mean a lot to all of us.
