Sophie update

My sister Sophie spent all last night at the VETS getting water in an IV. I don't know what that means, but it sounds dumb because you can just drink water if you are thirsty. The VETS called my Person this morning and said Sophie did well overnight but is still not eating any foods (also dumb, give me the foods), so they are going to force-feed her and if she can't keep any food down still they are recommending something called a bare-e-um X-ray. I guess they feed Sophie some bare-e-um and then take a bunch of X-rays to see how it looks inside her insides, and that will tell them if there is something stuck in there. And if it shows that, they will probably recommend surgery.

My Person is driving me nuts, basically. She is panicky and stressed and a wreck, because all of this stuff is apparently going to cost around 2,000 moneys, which we just don't have. So she is not sure what to do.

Some persons have donated moneys and we want to say THANK YOU so much and that it helps, and that we appreciate it more than we can say. My Person also wants me to say that we are not posting about this so any of you will feel bad and give us moneys. The moneys are wonderful and they help us a lot, but I am just here blogging because that's what my blog is for, and my Person is hovering because she knows that all of you will understand how she is feeling.

I will keep you posted when we hear from the VETS again. (I hate the VETS.)

Hugs for you, purrs and wags for Sophie (and Kismet). We know you aren't asking, but we still wish we had something to donate. We'll add a link to your blog on our sidebar, in case it will help.

Purrrrring and purrrraying for Sophie. We hope she recovers from this soonest.

PS: We don't like the V*T much either, but sometimes they do help. Hang in there, everyone.

PPS: A couple places with lots and lots of links that might be able to help you. There is probably a lot of overlap between them, but we figured you knew your situation better than we did, so we would just dump them all on you and let you see if anything there could help. Good luck.
