good news!

um hi, it's me, meep ...

so i just got back from Dr. Wendy's and i've got some good news - it looks like we caught my heart condition pretty early! my "ultra-look" pictures show that i have an enlarged heart with some kind'a thick walls, one of my valves doesn't werk so good, and my heart beats too fast. but Dr. Wendy said that my blood pressure is normal and that we can probably get my heart to beat a little bit slower with some medication. so i'm gonna try the meds for a week, and go back for another EKG & blood pressure. then 'bout 2 weeks after that, i'm gonna see a kitty card-i-ologist.

i wanna say thanks so much to efurrybuddy who posted such nice comments and sent purrs & headbutts to me & my family - it means lotz to all of us! and a big thank you to Mr. Hendrix for putting my story on the Cat Blogosphere - we really 'purreciate your thoughtfulness.

and we wanna thank Dr. Wendy and all the ladies in her office for always takin' such good care of me n' my brothers whenever we go there.

okay, well i've had kinda a big day, so i'm gonna go rest for a little bit. my mom is makin' chicken soup for dinner, and i wanna make sure that i can help her when it's time. she always says that i'm her "little kitchen helper" and that she'd never be able to make dinner without my help ...

Dooood! I'm glad they caught it early! The Cat Who Came Before Me was on meds to slow her heart and make it beat more efficiently, too. And the People bought it at a People Drug Store! For cheap! Which is good because deep down, they're as cheap as it gets...
