my heart

Innernets, I am a little drunk from anesthesia still, so I will write my whole post of RAGE tomorrow, but I just wanted to stop by and let you all know that my heart is a little broked. I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and three of my heart valves are leaking. I am okay right now, and I am going to start medicines soon, and the VETS people said I was very grumpy and I vommed in their room (HAHA), but my heart is a little broked. My Person and I are both tired, so I will give you the full story tomorrow after we sleep and I am SOBER!

We are sorry your heart is broken (a little). We will purr that the vet can give you things that make it like your heart is not broken at all.

Our mewmie knows all about HCM and while the news isn't good, Brighton had 3 leaky valves as a kitten and they went away (we know, you's ain't a kitten any longer, but...) and 3 of her HCM cats lived til old age, though 1 died at 8 months...the older you are when it is diagnosed, the better the chances for a long life are. Our mewmie will email you mewmie with some links and info, ok. For now, you just rest and take your meds...

Aw, dood...that sucks. The Cat Who Came Before Me Had that. It's scary stuff, but once they got her on the right drugs she had a whole extra year and was happy and comfortable the whole time. I got paws crossed that they get your meds right from the very start and that you get a long, long time with us.

Jessica said...

Kismet, this is a new fan here. I just want to say that you are a very fine, fine, man cat, and I love the way your personality comes through in your blog. Very sad to hear about the broked heart, but glad your whisker humps and paws are still big and studly.

We are very sorry that your heart is broked. I have HCM too and had a follow-up ultrasound today. I did not get anesthesia because I am not as fierce as you are. I only growl at my new brother Kirby, which I am doing right now because he is sitting in my bed. I don't know why Mommy & Daddy let that cat in the house. I was first diagnosed in Oct. 2008. I take my medicine and feel fine. I hope that your medicine makes you feel fine too. Sending you purrs.

Feel better Big Man Cat. I know how yucky getting over the drunkenness can be. We're sorry too the read that your heart is a little bit broken. We're glad you had that procedure done so that now you know. I'm purring for you! All of us at our house are. My mom would purr if she could. She says she's praying along with our purrs.

Kismet, my mommie's heart is broken that your heart is broken, but I told her that since you are a BIG MAN CAT you will be okay.

Mommie says that you have to take your meds and not give your Person any trouble. Mommie says that she gives me a pill every other day, but I don't believe her because I never see any pill. I do get a yummy big soft treat every other day. Uh-oh, does that mean what I think . . . .

Best wishes to you, my big man cat role model!

Love,
~Emerson & Mommie

We are sorry to hear that your hear is a little bit broken, but we are purring big time for the medicine to make you better. It sounds like other kittie's persons have experience dealing with this disease and can help out your person, which is a very good thing. Well, the good thing is you are done with the tests and you vommed 'em good! Way to go, Kismet!
