Friday ~ 11 December 2009
Please, all of my dear friends here at Red Bubble, I hope you will say a prayer for my sweet little Maggie. As you recall, she is my newest addition to my family of cats and many of you joined in my contest of choosing a name for her early last Spring. Well, now she has a very high temperature. I noticed Thursday she was not eating, but it was not until that night that I really noticed she was not feeling well at all. Listless and would not purr as she almost always does. I sat at my computer for a while that night, holding her on my lap, but could not concentrate, so we went to bed and I held her on my pillow all night long. Her breathing was so shallow and she was so still and quiet. Friday morning I took her to the Vet’s and they are keeping her for a few days and trying to figure out what is wrong with her. I cannot afford a big Vet bill, but I will do anything to make her well and bring her back home.
I know we have so many to pray for these days with problems so huge compared to this, but I am feeling so distressed and anxious for my little girl. She means so much to me and I am praying for her recovery. Soon!

UPDATES!
Friday Evening
At closing time, I talked with the Dr. about Maggie and the xrays turned out fine and her bloodwork came back perfect. She is on antibiotics and fluids and her temperature had come down a little bit. In the morning we will know if there are any irregularities in her urine. I am so relieved so far to hear that she is resting peacefully.
Thank you so much dear ones for all of your prayers and your phone calls and comments both public and private. It means so much to me.

Sunday morning ~ No news since yesterday morning. The Dr. did not call me back yesterday as promised, so I must be patient. Today will be a very long day….

Monday morning ~ Her temperature has come down a little bit as of this morning, but it is still very high. I talked to them early this morning and am still waiting for a return call from one of the Dr.’s about her lab work.

Monday evening ~ All tests are back and their readings are perfect. Her fever continues to spike, but gradually it is coming down. I am very hopeful that she will be OK, but will be in the hospital for a few more days. Her fever must return to normal and stay that way for one whole day before they will allow her to come home.

Tuesday morning ~ There is something called “Fever of Unknown Origin” and that is when all of the tests come back normal, but they are still so very ill and with a high temperature. Much is written on this subject, but all that is advised is to keep them hydrated, on anti-biotics and comfortable until it goes away. I visited with her at the Vet’s this morning. The attendant brought her to me with her IV attached and on wheels. I held her to my chest and she nuzzled my face and purred while we sat for nearly an hour. Her fever was up higher than last night at 104.8, so I am just being thankful that I brought her in where she can be cared for by the professionals. I will go back in tomorrow morning and pray for good news. Thank you all for all of your prayers and well wishes. It means so much to me.

Wednesday ~ Maggie is still up to much of the same. Her fever is up and then down to normal, only to go back up again. Thank you everyone for all of your kind wishes and prayers. I am so thankful to know that all of your are praying with me.

Thursday morning ~ Good news everyone! Little Maggie’s fever is down to 103.9 which is still a little high, but if she continues like this, I will be able to take her home tomorrow. Yippeee!!! She was alert, yet calm and was trying to peel off the tape that holds on the IV like she was say she wanted her life to return to normal already! Thank you everyone for all of your prayers and good wishes. They mean so much to me and sweet Maggie.

Friday ~ MAGGIE IS BACK HOME AGAIN! :~)

Saturday ~ My darling little Maggie is well and back home after a week in the Vet Hospital. All tests had come back normal, but she had very high temperature sometimes as high as 106. What the Dr’s call it is ‘Fever of unknown origin’ No known cause but left untreated would not have had a good outsome. She came home yesterday after her temperature returned to normal for twelve hours. She was so happy to be home. She inspected the whole house, reacquainted herself with the other kitties, then promptly had a race with Murphy from one end of the house to the other. Before long, she was tuckered out and decided a nice late afternoon nap was in order.
So many thanks and appreciation for all of the prayers and well wishes from all of my friends here at Red Bubble. I received so many comments, personal notes and even phone calls from so many members. I am deeply grateful for your kindness and prayers.
Hugs to all of you, Marjie and Maggie

Miss Maggies continues to thrive and I cannot tell you how thankful I am for all of your prayers and good wishes. It goes beyond description and as I sit here, my little girl is by my side with her bright eyes and alert expression. Thank you again for all of the goodness you have sent our way. Hugs and meows from my house to yours. xoxox

Cameras and photography captured my interest years ago as a child with my little Brownie. The cameras have changed over the years until the Digital age when I got really serious about photography. Not only has my work improved, but it has opened many doors to meeting wonderful people along the way. New friendships and learning new skills… I am hopeful that some of my best work is yet to come.

  • Yes, I am counting on the Vets to make her well. My house is cat proofed if you know what I mean. No chemicals in my house anyway in fact i will not allow even commercial carpet cleaners in my house. All of my cats are only indoor cats, but I did just put up my Christmas tree, so I cannot help but wonder. Thank you for your kind note, John. It means so much to me.

    St. Martin de Porres

    St. Martin de Porres was born at Lima, Peru, in 1579. His father was a Spanish gentleman and his mother a coloured freed-woman from Panama. At fifteen, he became a lay brother at the Dominican Friary at Lima and spent his whole life there-as a barber, farm laborer, almoner, and infirmarian among other things.

    Martin had a great desire to go off to some foreign mission and thus earn the palm of martyrdom. However, since this was not possible, he made a martyr out of his body, devoting himself to ceaseless and severe penances. In turn, God endowed him with many graces and wondrous gifts, such as, aerial flights and bilocation.

    St. Martin’s love was all-embracing, shown equally to humans and to animals, including vermin, and he maintained a cats and dogs hospital at his sister’s house. He also possessed spiritual wisdom, demonstrated in his solving his sister’s marriage problems, raising a dowry for his niece inside of three day’s time, and resolving theological problems for the learned of his Order and for bishops. A close friend of St. Rose of Lima, this saintly man died on November 3, 1639 and was canonized on May 6, 1962. His feast day is November 3

  • Thank you so much for this Sean. Perhaps I should find a medal of him just to keep his blessings in my life. I also love animals, so I think we would have been good friends.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Maggie Marjorie. Three things will usually tell what is wrong. A check for worms or parasites….an x-ray…and bloodwork will usually tell what’s wrong. I will pray that your little sweetheart will be ok.

  • Thank you so much, Ginny. My Vet is very good and we talked about all of that this morning, exactly as you say. Thank you so much for your prayers. I am blessed to have you as a friend. xoxox
