Back in the Cage

Well, here we go again.  I'm back at the hospital.  Mom and dad came to visit me last night, and I dictated this to dad so he could write it up this morning.  Overall my health improved after having those bad teeth pulled, but lately I just haven't been feeling too well.
     Mom and dad have been trying different canned foods, most of which I could spew right back at them, and they've been sticking me in the back of my neck twice a week which fills me up like a water balloon.  
     Fluids shmuids!  I thought I was drinking plenty.  Anyway, these last couple of days I just haven't been myself, and I gave them a scare because I've been so lethargic, my peeing and eating habits have been different, and I've been kinda wobbly, so here I am.  In the damn cage again.
      About the only thing positive I will say is this heating pad they have me laying on.  Not much of a replacement for mom's or dad's laps, but it'll do.
     Turns out I have a urinary tract infection, I'm dehydrated again (go figure), and my kidney levels are off again.  So now I'm loaded up on antibiotics, anti-vomiting something or other and appetite stimulants, and locked up in this damn cage with a bunch of cats and dogs, if you can believe it.  
     I asked for a private room, but no go.  I gave mom and dad the evil eye last night, but I was too exhausted to do much more than that.  

Note to mom: thanks for wiping up my heavy drool.  They'd just given me my meds before you guys walked in, and I can't stand the taste of that sh*t.

Sweetest furriend, my mom read this to me and she said she understands as much as possible about how you are feeling. Her baby before me, Admiral went through much the same except the toothier. Her toothier stayed good but her had idiopathic hypercalcimia and her was sick.
I purr and she does too! that you will have a turn-around and get better. Sending love and purrs.

Well, this is certainly a bummer. I sure hope that fix-it place can do the trick, Orbit, and get you back home soon. Heating pads are fun and all that but they're no substitution for mom and dad.

Purrs, dude. We are loyal readers, mega-fans of you and your attitude. When I grow up I want to be like yo. Except maybe the infection and drool. But the attitude to humans- yes indeed.
Hang on in there Orbit.

Oh, please get better soon! You need to get home where you are more comfy (and there aren't a bunch of unruly cats and dogs).
