with heartfelt thanks

Words cannot express the gratitude that we feel for the outpouring of love and support that you have all shown us. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

Although we are not ready to start posting again, we just wanted to let everyone know that Buzzy’s passing was amazingly peaceful. We have no doubt that he was ready for us to let him go to The Bridge.

As soon as he feels up to it, Meep will be posting on his own. Until then, please know that you are all in our thoughts & prayers.

Thank you all, for being there for us, for understanding, and for caring. It truly means more to us than you’ll ever know.

losing our little man

Hello everyone. Despite the very best efforts of Dr. Philibert & JP Buzzerbee himself, we are losing our little man.
Although we have attacked it with the best protocols possible, that vicious, disgusting, hateful cancer has taken hold of poor Buzzy's chest. Without subjecting the poor boy to hours of chemo drips and feeding-tubes, there is nothing more we can do to help our little boy fight. And at best, those efforts would buy us a week or two at most. Jim & I can't ask Buzzy to go thru all of that now, when he hasn't even been able to eat for a week.
We've all heard the phrase, "Say when . . . " well, we are saying "when" for our little man. The past 6 months have been so hard on him; it's just not fair to ask him to fight anymore.
With extremely heavy hearts, we have made an appointment for him on Thursday at 9:30 am. We ask that everyone understand our decision to let our little man go to a place where there is no cancer and no suffering.
We may post again soon, or we may need to take some time off; just not sure at this point.
Thank you all so very much for all of your care & support - it truly does mean the world to all of us.

good dr. visit!

Just a very quick post to update everyone about Buzzy's oncology visit today . . . it looks like the "rescue therapy" that he had last week is working!!! Dr. Philibert said that Buzzy's chest felt and sounded better. It was too soon for him to get another dose of the CCNU med, but hopefully we'll be able to move forward next week. As always, thank you all so much for all of your continued good wishes and prayers.

oops . . .

hi, it's me, meep . . .

thank you all so much efurrybuddy for all of your kind werds - it means lotz how much you all cares 'bout us!

i think that we've had too many serious posts on our bloggie, so today i'm postin' sumthin' silly . . . 'member a few days ago Buzz talked 'bout the real nice beds we got from the people that rescued us? this is one of those beds. it's furry cute and soft - it's got little bunnies on it, so i call it my "bunny basket". it sits up kinda like a nice big bowl. well yesterday, i just kinda felled-out of it. funny thing was, i was layin' down at the time. my mom took a picture 'cause she said that i was the only kitty that could fall down from a flat position, whatever that means. anyhoo, i was happy that i made her laff.

thanks again so much efurrybuddy - hopefully we'll have some good news to report real soon!

an update

Hi everyone - it's Buzz & Meep's mom with a quick update . . .

It became clear over the week-end that Buzzy was not responding to his chemo program (he was on CHOP). We took him to the oncologist today and are going to try another type of protocol.

The doctor has assured us that Buzzy is not in pain, and that trying another type of treatment is very reasonable.

We are hoping and praying that this new treatment will work. As hard as it is, Jim & I have decided that this is the last protocol we will put poor Buzzy thru. We need to do what is right and fair for our little man.

On a happier note, Saturday was Buzzy's 6th "Gotchya Day"!

As always, thank you all so much for your continued thoughts & prayers. It helps so much to know that we are not alone.

not the best news

Just got back from my oncology appointment with some bad news - my tumor has gotten bigger.
Jim & my mom knew sumthin' was wrong 'cause of the way I was havin' trouble breathin' on Monday.
Dr. Philibert thought it would be a good idea to go ahead with the next step in my treatment process, so I got my big dose of adriamycin. Dr. Philibert is hopeful that this really strong drug will make the tumor stop growin'.
I'll post again when we've got some (hopefully better!) news. Thank you efurrybuddy for all of your continued thoughts & purrayers.
