Mystery IX and Update on Angus

Back to Mystery IX - it was easier to pull this out and set it up on the big Q-Snaps now that all of our houseguests have left. I am hoping to have the rest of the stitching done tomorrow, or Friday at the latest. Then the beading will begin. There is a bright light at the end of this tunnel now!
Oh my gosh, thank you all for your wonderful comments and emails about my Angus! Here is a photo of him when he was a year old (he is the black one, Beau is behind him) and had just had his first shave. Angus' coat mats up very easily. I have spoken with the vet a couple of times today. Angus is on his catheter and the urine continues to flow freely with some blood still in it. He will likely be on the catheter until at least tomorrow morning. At some point they will do blood tests on him again to see if his levels have improved. This part makes me nervous. If they stay as high as they were last night, that would indicate that he has some damage, whether it is renal or bladder. I really am nervous about that, and want to thank everyone for their well wishes and support. I wish I had more news today, but the best I can say is that he is stable and "being a good boy" in the hospital. I am going to ask if I can go and visit him after work tomorrow. I will surely continue to keep you posted.

On a lighter note, one of my clients found this blog to be humorous - Stuff On My Cat - thought I would share it with you. I think this person has way too much time on her or his hands!! LOL

Stitched on today: Stitched on a gift, and Mystery IX

Poor Angus, at least he sounds stable.
Stuff on my cat has a rip off calendar that I saw in the mall, so they are making some moola from their silly site. Cosmo wants to just sit on stuff like bubble plastic, etc. He doesn't like stuff on him.

Poor old Angus. Hopefully he is on the mend.

I missed your post yesterday Crol so belated hugs for Angus and I hope he gets better soon and there's no lasting damage. Poor sweetie. It's awful when our pets are sick :(

Lulu gets very stressed with visitors and has problems peeing - as if she's got an infection but it's just stress. Our vet says it's quite common.

{{{hugs}}}

If you get to visit Angus take him a sweatshirt,flannel shirt, something of yours that you have worn (not washed) so that he has the scent of home and something familiar with him. Can you tell I've been through the kitty hospital stuff. Hugs and kisses from me and my three fur babies to Angus.

Carol,

You know my best thoughts are with you for little Angus. I know that with so many well wishes coming his way, he will be fine.

Mary said...

Oh dear! I am just catching up with my blog reading. I hope Angus gets better. Hopefully he will be home soon. Maybe it was the houseguests and he'll feel better when he has his home back to himself.
On a brighter note... You are doing great with Mystery XI. It's almost done. I have loved watching this piece come to life. Thanks!
